The Best Restaurants In Canada For Outdoor Dining Got Ranked & Their Patios Are Next Level

If you want to add to your culinary bucket list, the best restaurants in Canada for outdoor dining were revealed and the spots are not your average patios.

OpenTable has put out a ranking of the top 15 coolest outdoor restaurants in Canada and the U.S. that have turned their dining spaces into art.

Here are the four spots in Canada that made the cut!

Bonterra Trattoria

Price: 💸💸💸

Cuisine: Italian

Address: 1016 8th St. S.W., Calgary, AB

Why You Need To Go: This restaurant has great food but the big draw is the luxurious patio, according to OpenTable. Bonterra Trattoria's outdoor dining area is part of a parking lot but it makes you feel like you've been transported to Italy with its terracotta tiles, rustic features and greenery.


Maison Boulud

Price: 💸💸💸

Cuisine: Contemporary French

Address: 1228 Sherbrooke St. W., Montréal, QC

Why You Need To Go: The outdoor dining spot at this restaurant in Montreal is in stark contrast to the cityscape that surrounds it. The veranda is right on a landscaped garden, which makes it feel like a metropolitan oasis.


El Catrin

Price: 💸💸

Cuisine: Mexican

Address: 18 Tank House Ln., Toronto, ON

Why You Need To Go: The patio at El Catrin was called "one of a kind" by OpenTable. It's an industrial space but it's full of funky furniture and bursts of colour that make it a fun spot to dine outside.


Teahouse in Stanley Park

Price: 💸💸💸

Cuisine: Contemporary

Address: 7501 Stanley Park Dr., Vancouver, BC

Why You Need To Go: This restaurant's terrace has been hailed as one of the best outdoor dining spots of the country for its views of the North Shore mountains and sunsets on English Bay. It also has glass half-walls so the beauty of nature isn't obstructed and sunshades so diners are protected during the day.


Some provinces may require a vaccine passport or proof of vaccination to access businesses and activities deemed non-essential, including restaurants and bars. Be sure to check provincial guidelines before heading out.

One of the world's most prestigious restaurant awards were handed out on Tuesday, and a Danish restaurant took the top prize after completely reinventing itself.

Noma was named the top place to eat on the World's 50 Best Restaurants list for 2021, only three years after the eatery moved to a rustic field and greenhouse in Copenhagen.

It's starting to get gloomy in Vancouver with what feels like 100% rain all the time and grey skies that don't wanna budge. It's officially fall in the city and there's no denying it. But just when you thought all the sun and summertime vibes were gone, a new Yaletown restaurant pops up on your radar.

Located in the sexy and stylish neighbourhood of Yaletown, Fayuca is serving Pacific-Northwest and Mexican fusion cuisine that's bursting with flavour. And how suiting that its location is in Yaletown as the design of this restaurant is definitely bringing some heat.

Hey Vancouver, there's a new hipster food joint that just opened up last week on Fraser St and it's calling your name. Serving up comfort food that will make your mouth water, soft-serve ice cream beer floats, and over 18 different types of craft beer, including your local faves like Luppolo, Twin Sails, and more, Bells and Whistles will definitely become your new favourite weekend haunt.

Oh yeah, and did we mention, this place is aesthetic as fvck. Designed by Winnipeg-based geniuses, Tinto Creative Studio, this restaurant is defs going to be on our Insta. I mean, come on, the beer menu on the walls literally looks like a game of Scrabble, and the rustic pillars and exposed ceiling are just...need I say more?

To be unashamed and fully honest with you, I love Domino's pizza. Sometimes you just want that non-fancy, full fat, full grease, make-you-feel-like-a-ton-of-bricks-after type pizza and be done with it.

Of course, I also enjoy a fancy, authentic Italian clay-oven pizza, but who would've thought that a pizza could be so fancy it costs nearly $1000? Okay, maybe we're exaggerating a tiny bit, but I mean, with tax, this $850 pizza might as well be 1K.
