Two Ottawa restaurants have cracked OpenTable’s list of Canada’s best 100 restaurants for outdoor dining.
Bar Lupulus and Riviera are on the list by the online reservation website, released ahead of the Victoria Day long weekend.
Bar Lupulus, a craft beer and natural wine bar on Wellington Street West, has a small patio out front and a larger back patio.
Riviera, a fine dining restaurant downtown, has a patio in front of the restaurant on Sparks Street.
Sixty-two of the restaurants on the list are in Ontario. Twenty-one are in B.C., 15 are in Alberta and two are in Quebec.
OpenTable says restaurant reservations in May are up 61 per cent compared to the same time period pre-pandemic.
