Quiet atmosphere, dimly lit, definate resteraunt feel. Emphasis is more on wine than beer, but some rare stuff was available. Also had a few taps. Beer prices seemed rather high. Food portions very small, overpriced. Somewhat strange custom of having to go to the bar to order beer. Service was pleasant other than that. Would have stayed longer had the prices been more reasonable.

I’m happy I found this little corner. Its always nice to find a little dungeon where you can drink some Belgian beers. I thought overall the selection was nice and the barman was very accommodating. Its a little expensive but overall I would recommend it.

Pretty good beer selection, decent food, average service and high prices. Still a good place for beer in the byward market.

A very nice find in downtown Ottawa! Stated as a wine bar but stocks over 90 beers from all over the world and 30+ domestic microbrews. A good food menu consisting mostly of seafood. Had a separate Belgian beers menu, which included Westvleteren (albeit priced at 50 Canadian dollars!!).

Place is nice and the selection of beers is great, but the food was only "meh" and the prices for the beer were insane. $13 for a Dieu du Ciel! beer that I can buy just across the river for less than $4??? I would not return.

Original review posting date 5/2/2009... It seems like someone was having a bad day at the bar, but this was unacceptable. I have edited this for a more thorough explanation but this is one place in Ottawa I will not be frequenting. Here’s how this visit went down... Well, we walked in on a cool early evening in May to what seemed like a nice place. We asked if there was a bar and the server said "yes, downstairs." However, when I asked if they had beer down there the server said she wasn’t sure. Really? At the same time, another patron seemed to be upset with us because we came in from a different door from the one she came in. BAD omen...but that wasn’t the issue. We walk downstairs to the bar and take a couple places on the end and sit down. I looked at the taps and picked up the beer list in front of me and made a quick attempt to peruse...BUT...not 2 seconds after picking it up the bartender actually PULLED THE BEER MENU OUT OF MY HAND! WTF?! I was dumfounded and mumbled in my amazement. He was obviously looking for conflict because he asked what I said, so I told him I was startled that someone would take something out of A CUSTOMER’S HAND WITH NO EXPLANATION. So he scolded me for "being aggressive." So y’know what? We left. Bugger on this joint...and by the way, the fish smelled raunchy.

Really great atmosphere being in the basement. A great place for that last pint of the night. Only drawback is the price, it’s a little pricey for the drinks although the selection is quite good. Food prices are pretty fair for downtown Ottawa.

Une bonne place, pafois de bonne bières mais il manque d’ambiace, les nouvetés se font rare, par contre les gens son chaleureux quand nous les connaissons bien. Le gros hik par rapport au autre endrois sont les prix parfois ridicule, dans le meilleur des mondes, le propriétaire devrais baisser les prix pour augmenter sa clientèles.

The service is good and they do not rush you. As for food the choices can please almost everybody. As for beers the choice is good but limited. It is a good place to go but there is better in Ottawa.

J’ai visité cette place là à deux reprises (en fin de septembre 2005 et au printemps dernier). La nouriture était assé bien, la première fois j’ai mangé une pizza 8 très chère et la deuxième était un steak mangeable. Quant j’ai venus ici pour la première fois, je m’y connaisais un peu dans la bière, donc j’étais impressionné, mais après avoir visité Pub Italia plus à l’est, bof le choix n’est pas si spectaculaire pour moi aujourd’hui. Et Le Black Tomato qui est plus prèt, à un bon choix de bière ontarianne et la nouriture est pas mal meilleur! PS, c’est un peu fatiguent d’aller commendé au bar ta bière!

Dark and cozy interior. Decent beer list of LCBO and consignment brews available, but as some have note the prices on stuff like the belgian imports is on the high side. I ordered the $12 steak frites, which came with a servicable ceasar salad and solid fries, my med-well steak arrived very much on the well done side of things and was not mind blowing but for a $12 steak platter I wasn’t expecting the world either. Staff was friendly. Was pretty quiet when i was there mid-afternoon. Great spot in the market and I would go back but unless you’re seeking out the rarities The Black Tomato might be my first choice.
