I live in Ottawa and The Albion Rooms is one of my favourite restaurants. Chef Jesse manages to surprise me every time with his newly designed gourmet creations, which he'll come and describe to you. Each dish reveals a myriad of savours. The price is reasonable considering the intricacies of these culinary gems. What's more, the majority of the ingredients... More

Attached to The Novotel. Modern woodsy décor makes one feel welcome. Various choices at various price points. Great freshly cut meats from cooler room for charcuterie platters. It would be more pleasing to see more variety aside from pork. Some classics are deconstructed & fresh produce is strategically applied.

Got a big gang of people looking to meet up for breakfast? Well Albion Rooms does up a fine spread. You can go for the buffet or order off the menu. Lotsa space to spread out and socialize.

We came on the recommendation of a friend and we were so glad we did! Absolutely amazing! I had the squash gnocchi and brussel sprouts and my husband had the seafood boil. Best gnocchi I've ever had! Really nice classy but casual atmosphere. 10/10 would recommend.

The atmosphere at the Albion rooms located inside the Novotel Ottawa Hotel is very peaceful and remodelled. The Chefs Jesse Bell, Ricardo Raymond, Line Lefebvre, Damion Gordon, Hua Tung, Neven Elezovic, Jennifer Duffy, Jing Abbot, and Jon Toye put together a great tasting meal that will leave a lasting memory for Valentine's day 2017.
