This was our second visit to this cute and cozy restaurant. We enjoyed our meal. Service was great. We will definitely go again. Reservations highly recommended as it’s often fully booked.

Fraser Cafe, a restaurant in the Ottawa Beechwood area, offers consistently good food, interesting wines, excellent service and a pleasant ambiance. The menu is simple but changes regularly. Always a great dining experience!

The food and atmosphere were great! Coffee was really good too. Had to wait a long time for food. We didn't mind, but some people may. It was fresh!

The service there is one of the best. They really helped a lot with the order and everything that followed. The smoked beef I got tasted exactly like the ones I had back in my hometown when I was a kid. I fell in love...More

A group of us had dinner and really enjoyed the food, which is made better by the pleasant service. Three of us had the seared trout with rapini and bok choi, which was excellent, although pricy at $32 Canadian. For dessert we had the passion...More

This has been the restaurant that had the wow factor in flavour. So many beautifully complex things going on with their dishes. I had the duck, which was amazing. But I wish I ordered the trout as my husband did, because it was like nothing...More

My son booked Fraser Cafe for diner for six adults on a Saturday night. Outside, the weather was cold and stormy. Inside, the atmosphere was excellent (many groups), all enjoying the fantastic food, and warm setting. Service was first class, food oustanding.

We absolutely love the food and service at Fraser Cafe. It’s a real sinking experience. I would highly recommend the salmon over the strip loin. Everything is top notch, the desserts are out of this world. I would recommend the doughnuts or one the selections...More

The menu is imaginative with both small and large plates. My trout was succulent, the beef and frites were delicious I’m told. Homemade bread made every day is worthy of the gods. The sticky toffee pudding was so sticky that our friend lost the cap...More
