Ottawa has no shortage of excellent restaurants. Almost every month, there is another new spot to eat opening in the city. Since we are spoiled for choice on where to dine, it might be hard to pick where to eat next. So to help you figure out the places you need to try, we've gathered up a bucket list of the best restaurants in Ottawa that you won't regret going to.\nWhile most of us can't afford to dine at some of the best restaurants in Ottawa all the time, they are well worth the splurge for a special night out, like a birthday. Two spots that are worth spending your hard-earned money on are Atelier and Riveria. Both places are listed as some of the best restaurants in Canada by Canada's 100 Best.\nThankfully, not all bucket list-worthy restaurants in Ottawa are costly. Local gems like Sansotei Ramen always has a line out the door, and there you can eat a massive meal for super cheap. Another must-try spot is Art-Is-In Bakery, where you can enjoy some of the best baked goods and pizza in the city.\nHere are 14 bucket list restaurants in Ottawa everyone should try at least once:\nFairouz\nPrice: 💸💸💸\nCuisine: Middle Eastern\nAddress: 343 Somerset St. W., Ottawa\nWhy You Need To Go: It was just listed as one of the best vegetarian restaurants in Canada by OpenTable.\n View this post on Instagram New dishes alert 🚨 !
