OK, poutine is not good for you or your waist line. But, if it is poutine you want, this is the place to go. The ultimate comfort food! With different varieties to choose from, you can always find one that meets your needs. Good gravy, lots of cheese, very soggy... what more can you ask for? Its poutine.

We ate here one day for a quick poutine! Was very impressed with the gravy and actually clean the bowl clean! Would reccommend if you are looking for good fries and gravy!

This was my first trip to Ottawa and naturally we wanted poutine and I saw the positive reviews for this restaurant. We walked in and it wasn't too busy. The employee immediately appeared and asked for our order. I said we needed a moment to decide and he made a negative face and walked away. No big deal, we were... More

If you love Poutine, this is the place to visit. The different types of Poutine from the Classic French Canadian with just cheese and gravy, to loaded poutine, to Mexico poutine, to tons of other flavours and types. Great snack on the run and you can almost say this could be considered a must see

First of all, I'm American and not deeply acquainted with poutine. I actually didn't know there was a separate term for french fries and cheese curd in gravy. Nor did I know the universe of ways you can provide said dish, with Philly cheesesteak toppings, or waffles and fried chicken, or bacon and eggs. But I can say that this... More

Ordered a small poutine. Barely any cheese and no gravy...it was just a frie. Really not worth spending $6.00 on this. Won't go back.

My wife has wanted to try poutine for a while, so while on vacation in the Adirondacks we decided to drive into Ottawa for some real poutine. We picked this place with the help of Trip Advisor, and my wife really enjoyed the poutine there. It's a small informal place, and all they serve is poutine. The staff were friendly... More
