2014-2015 Ottawa Visitor Guide



The culinary scene in Ottawa has come alive in recent years, with a thriving community of Ottawa chefs and Ottawa restaurants making names for themselves both at home and abroad.

Located in the historic Sandy Hill neighbourhood in downtown Ottawa, Le Cordon Bleu Ottawa Culinary Arts Institute is the only Canadian campus of this world renowned culinary training school – and includes a Bistro where anyone can sample the delights of exceptional French cuisine.

As one of Ontario's designated culinary tourism destinations, the city, its restaurants and its local food producers are all working together to bring locally-grown and prepared foods to tables across the region through an initiative called Savour Ottawa.

Ottawa restaurants are wonderfully diverse. In the mood for French, Italian, Chinese or seafood? Choose from scores of each. Craving something a little more unique and exotic? You'll find it. Looking for more casual fare for lunch, a large group, or a quick snack? Check, check and check. Bon appetit!
