Description

Fast becoming one of Canada's alternative gastronomic hubs, a weekend Ottawa getaway is packed with indulgence for the adventurous foodie.

Long a leading centre of culture and history, Canada's capital city has plenty to offer; but has not traditionally been renowned as a destination for gourmands. However, things are changing, with innovative restaurants and artisan producers popping up in an increasingly thriving scene. With a foodie culture bubbling beneath the surface and gradually coming to the fore, Ottawa makes a fascinating alternative destination for a short gourmet escape - so long as you know where to find its treasures.

Many of the city's hidden culinary gems are situated within The Glebe, a neighbourhood just south of Ottawa's downtown area. You will join a tour of the area, discovering many of the local secrets which lie largely unknown to visitors in one of Ottawa's oldest and most beautiful neighbourhoods. In an experience lasting around two-and-a-half hours, your guide will take you around the area's myriad of restaurants, shops and food artisans; all within a few blocks of each other.

Dinner is also included on one night at one of Ottawa's leading restaurants, awarded a maximum five stars by the Ottawa Sun. Tables at Beckta Dining & Wine are the most sought-after in town, with residents and visitors alike clamouring to sample the inventive haute cuisine of Executive Chef Michael Moffatt. Sample the chef's eight course tasting menu, based on a philosophy of presenting a culinary experience that is both comfortable and remarkable.

This two-night break also leaves plenty of time aside to explore the other cultural aspects of Ottawa. Situated in one of Ottawa's leading centrally-located luxury properties, you will be well placed to take in the city's attractions, from the iconic Parliament Buildings to the Rideau Canal and beyond. A variety of tips, food-related and otherwise, will be outlined in your personalized itinerary; ensuring you get the most from your Ottawa getaway.
