You have a discriminating palate, and youre always on the lookout for outstanding cuisine. Youll find lots to discover in Outaouais, with literally hundreds of opportunities to broaden your culinary horizons. A few that spring to mind: Le Baccara, proud recipient of the CAA AAA's Five Diamond rating since 2001, is sure to please the most discerning gourmet. For a special culinary experience, try the eight-course tasting menu. Soif wine bar, owned and operated by Véronique Rivest (who placed second at the 2013 Sommelier du Monde competition), features fine global wines and refined small plates complemented by friendly, knowledgeable service. On a slightly different note, if you crave pulled pork, BBQ Shop is the place to go. A gourmet getaway just wouldn’t be complete without a sampling of regional specialties, and the Outaouais: Bite into it! agri-tourism project has lined up a discovery tour for that very purpose. Les Virées gourmandes package invites you to visit three passionate and talented local producers, including the master chocolate makers at ChocoMotive, Quebec's only chocolate economuseum.

Our featured route
Your stomach is rumbling and your taste buds request special treatment. Lucky for them we have so many fine eateries and so many walking itineraries to make room for it all!
Start by spending a few calories at Parc Moussette, right by the Ottawa River. You'll be within walking distance from Edgar, a little (and we mean little!) gem of a restaurant. Don't let the line of people discourage you. It's because their brunches, sandwiches and take-out plates are to die for! We then recommend a little stroll by Pink Lake before heading back dowtown. There, you will discover two very different yet equally tastu beverages: tea and beer. Don't worry, you can bring back some of the liquid goodness home! Hungry again? Soif - bar à vin, operated by the world's top female sommelier Véronique Rivest, is just a few steps away and waiting for you.
