Downtown Manotick staple. Great spot, nice patio small but excellent menu with friendly staff. I’ve been several times and prefer to sit on the older original section.

Black Dog Bistro has been around Manotick for many years. The restaurant space has been expanded to include a large formal dining area. The service is great and the food is also tasty. They have a lovely patio area in the summer time!

I’ve eaten here several times over the past 10years. It’s very popular, justifiably so. Good ambiance, well cooked and presented food. Usually attentive, informed staff with unobtrusive service, it’s the place to go, midweek for an unhurried lunch. I’ll stick with my 5star rating despite...More
