Where to Eat

Albion Rooms Restaurant - Inspired by a farm-to-table approach, this trendy new restaurant at the Novotel serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily. The buffet breakfast is composed of an extensive selection of seasonal and regional produce from the market. Bartenders serve up craft Ontario beers, wines from independent wineries and winemakers, and classic cocktails. House signature dishes deserve their own place at the table, such as the oysters and elk burgers. From Canadian roots and Ottawa soil, guests can experience true Northern hospitality with a hand-crafted story in the cozy yet glamorous interior or on the restaurant’s shaded patio. The Albion Rooms is located in a rustic historical building attached to the hotel. Experience the venue that UrbanSpoon has recognized as one of the best restaurants in the city, and that the New York Daily News deemed "hypercool."
