I had never been to this Greek restaurant and loved the food and the concept. Everything is served in small portions for 2 - perfect!!! You get to try all you want and, because you order as you go, you can stop anytime or re-order something that you found worth repeating. Plenty of vegetarian and seafood choices, so for me,... More

What a wonderful meal. Very friendly waitress, and accommodating to my wife's black pepper allergy. We had a cheese and spinach dip, then rosemary scallops which were cooked to perfection, then beet towers with yogurt and finally smoked salmon with caviar. The unifying flavor seems to have been the capers. A feta cheese cake was just salty enough to be... More

On June 8, 2016, we had a reservation for a small group from work at Aroma Meze at 239 Nepean Street in the heart of downtown Ottawa. This is a Greek and Mediterranean style restaurant and the concept is for sharing small plates with everyone at the table. With a recommendation we chose 3 Dolmades Plates (grape leaves stuffed with... More

This restaurant offers a small plates concept with wonderful Greek and Mediterranean flavours. There is many vegetarian and vegan options, and the service is friendly and fast. Great spot for business lunch, street is not very busy and parking is easy to find.

This place is absolutely fantastic. Perfect pace of the dishes, the food was really delicious and the service was very attentive and prompt. Would definitely recommend. This is an authentic and unique place, not a chain of so so food.

Went to this place for a family meal in December. It was busy even on a post Christmas weeknight. As always the food was superb. Service was not quite up to par for this place, probably because they were surprisingly busy, but the food was a excellent as it always is. It's small and friendly and we will for sure... More

Outstanding! Everything we had was great - lamb sliders, eggplant roulade, calamari, rosemary scallops, ouzo shrimp. Flavours popped - excellent. And to start, my bloody strawberry just set the tone. I will return here. absolutely!

This restaurant was rated as #2 on Trip Advisor and having never heard of it (even though it has been opened for over a decade) I decided to check it out. I was pleasantly surprised! A hidden gem, tapas style. Each of the 7 items we ordered was done to perfection, well presented with an impeccable mix of aromas plus... More

My husband & I hadn't experienced 'small plates' dining before, but now we're hooked. Aroma Meze is located in an older house on a small street in downtown Ottawa (free on-street parking). There are two separate dining areas--we were taken to the larger room at the back of the house. Zak, our wonderful waitperson, guided us through this adventure in... More
