We found Cafe Dario, this quaint little restaurant, by searching fine dining options in Winnipeg. After reading many really good reviews we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed in the very least. The restaurant is in a quaint little house and the atmosphere was warm and pleasant. There are 2 dining areas one that seats about 25 and the other about 10 to 12 (looks like there is an outdoor patio as well). The restaurant was full and we were seated in the larger area and conversation was a little difficult due to the amount of people but to be expected in a smaller space. I would recommend that when you make your reservation you request to be seated on the smaller side if they can accommodate. The fixed menu had a good number of appetizers and dinner selections to chose from and we were not disappointed in our choices - they do vary slightly or differently from those shown in the on line menu. Our waiter - Danny was most attentive and friendly - we really enjoyed a few laughs with him. The corn fritters were good and the chocolate chicken mole very tasty. Soup was served hot and very good. The salad was nicely presented topped with a delicious pineapple dressing. For our dinner choices we had the chicken breast with cream cheese and asparagus and duck breast. All presented and plated in a professional "Chef's" fashion and no less then what one would expect. Severed hot and delicious with a small serving of mashed potatoes and vegetables. Portions are not large but not necessary with the 5 courses and a bread basket we opted out of. A warm deep fried doughnut style goodie that was sprinkled with cinnamon and whipped cream on the side was served for dessert - simple but delicious. The good reviews are certainly not understated and we felt that our overall experience was excellent. We would most definitely recommend Cafe Dario and return ourselves.
