Whales Bone has become one of my regular lunch spots as they truly excel in service and quality of food. Specifically the smoke fish sandwich, which despite being one of the cheaper items on the menu goes a long way in delivering great taste. This...More

If you love fresh sea food and amazing oysters, then this is the place for you. The oyster selection is bar none and the freshness of the fish is surprising. This is the best kept secret in town so go and enjoy yourself but make...More

If you like oysters, good wine, and a lively environment ... you have to check out Whalesbone on Bank Street. Its a small menu that changes regularly, but the lobster rolls are some of the best in town. I had the scallop ceviche and I'm...More

An interesting ambience with really great, fresh food on the menu. The décor is what I would describe as funky, urban chic, but not over done. The atmosphere is that of a friendly, small restaurant where the chefs really know how to cook fish. Knowing...More

We did their 'brown bag' special sandwich of the day and it was spectacular. Bit of a lineup but it moves fairly quickly. Picnic tables outside; however, a street view of Kent isn't the most picturesque view! Have been dying to have the chance to...More

The food is of very high quality. Service is usually fast. There aren't many places to sit, but you can always take out. The calamari is the best.

This is the fifth or sixth visit to this fish monger / lunch counter in the last twelve months. They serve the best sandwiches, fish and chips, chowder etc. You could find in Ottawa. The bonus is you can purchase a great selection of sustainable...More

Some blocks from the most turistic part of Ottawa Whale'S bone is a sympathic oyster bar, with a warn atmosphere. You can join the "habitués" and eat seated at the bar. There is a problem with the oysters which apparently stay too long on the...More

I've got just a 1hour stop-over by bus in Ottawa and despite of eating at Mr.Sub (whitch is directly in the station) I walked 2minutes to Whales Bone and it was the best decision I could have made! They've got daily sabdwiches depending on their...More

There is nothing strange about restaurants such as this to not have a menu online. They serve very fresh seafood so it often has to do with what was available that day. I never had the fish and chips, when you go somewhere... More
