La Terrasse

Discover this hidden gem, featuring scenic vistas, delicious shareables, larger plates, and sweets al fresco. Enjoy a summer’s afternoon on Ottawa’s best patio, taking in views of the Parliament Buildings, rolling Gatineau Hills, and the Ottawa River, along with cocktails, sangria, and the finest local beers.

La Terrasse is closed for the season. We look forward to welcoming you back in the summer!

La Terrasse is partially funded by the Government of Canada through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario and Ottawa Tourism.
