Visiting relatives in Ottawa. They took us here. Cheese fondue was good. It was different cooking your own food on the supplied hot plate. The selection of food to cook was sufficient but the dipping sauces were unimpressive and boring. I make better at home....Overall the service was good and it was a fun experience. Nice to try something different.More

3 of us went on Victoria Day (May 20). Place was not busy - 2 out of 30 tables occupied. The "special" was all you can eat Racelette. Everyone had to take the special. We wanted 2 mains and the special. Nope. Misleading to force...all to eat the special. Misleading because if you eat too much on the "all you can eat", fine print says they can charge you more! What does "all you can eat" mean? Waitress then became rude, stopped speaking English and only spoke French. So read the fine print carefully and be wary on service. We got up and left and spent our money elsewhere.More

First timers went for Mothers Day with our teenage daughters. Staff were great explained the process extremely well in English. We had a nice relaxed meal in a enjoyable environment connecting as a family. Great selection of food for vegetarian, pescatarian and meat lovers all...in the same family. The chocolate fondu was a great finish. Highly recommended. Well worth the drive from Kanata.More

good cooking set, fresh cut veggies, beef, scallops, shrimps, baby potatoes (small creamers) and an array of 5 delicious sauces. Place your choices on the small raclette metal plates (they look like spatulas), cover them with cheese and cook to your liking. Dip or cover...with one of the favourite sauces, and voila...delicieux.More

Took the family to Meule et Caquelon and had a wonderful time. We weren't quite sure as we drove up to the restaurant, as it's rather unassuming and located in a strip mall. The inside decor isn't terribly fancy, but it's both welcoming and fun....The staff were fantastic - ensuring we had what we needed at a pace that was always attentive without being intrusive. The food was delicious and we all left feeling very satisfied. We enjoyed both the fondue and the Raclette and were well taken care of with instructions on how to get the most out of the latter as we had never had Raclette before. We will definitely return next time we're in the neighbourhood!More

Don’t let the strip mall exterior discourage you! We just had New Year’s Eve dinner here with 5 kids and 4 adults and had an incredible time. The owner is so lovely and such a great host. We only had the fondue, but it was...very delicious and we would highly recommend it. Our waitress Pascal was attentive, cheerful, and extremely knowledgeable. We would love to come back on a return trip to Ottawa.More

Went for a family dinner, party of 8, and had a wonderful time. Our server was able to make suggestions which was excellent because only 1 of us had been before. We had a good selection of meat, vegetables,cheese and bread. The cheese was amazing!...Wine was reasonable priced and beer was better by the glass than by the pitcher. Would recommend reservations for large group. Plan to spend a couple of hours. Enjoy!More

Our first experience of this type of restaurant and we liked it. Service was good and friendly and the food enjoyable - nice to do occasionally. Try it for the experience. Plenty of parking as it's in a small strip mall.

No you cannot anymore. That being said, the wine they sell is only $7 over store (SAW) price which is more than decent for a restaurant.
