    Small, delightful, delicious, private with a gorgeous view. Best steak I've had in the Ottawa area, and my guests loved the elk ravioli. Only slight disappointment for me was the mixed salad, all green and too acidic for my taste. My husband thought it was okay.

    Really enjoyed the elk ravioli. It was nice to see pastas made in house for a change. Also, we sat in the lounge instead of the Kitchen and it was really nice

    Three long-time friends, originally from Quebec City - known for its fine restaurants - celebrated their 65 birthdays at the ARK. Every dish was amazing (duck, filet, gnocci) - presentation and taste top notch and the service was excellent. One friend said she'd be hard pressed to find a similar restaurant in Toronto.

  • The ARK is Almonte's Hidden Gem!

    Celebrating our anniversary with Chef Trisha at the ARK was a great gift. As we reviewed the wine list, we ordered the cheese platter and beet salad. If you love your cheese, you really should order one. The presentation of different types of cheeses along with the specialty bread was amazing to the palette. Upon consuming the entire plate and beet salad, Chef Trisha asked how we enjoyed. In one word, amazing. Our main meal was a beef stew. I'm not sure of the name of this dish but it warmed the belly and so too the red wine. The amount of meal portions was perfect. The entire evening was unforgettable. I recommend everyone that travels to Almonte to experience this small treasure.

    ARIK is a little gem. The scenery is beautiful, the inn is lovely, and the food is always top notch. Nat (the chef) is passionate about what she does and it shows. Having lived in Toronto for 15 years, we dined out frequently at many excellent restaurants. To find food in a lovely little town like Almonte that is on par or even better than many meals we had in Toronto is a dream come true. Rob (ARIK's owner) is always attentive and a pleasure to talk to. We recommend ARIK to everyone, all the time!

  • 70th birthday dinner
    hhutchh
    Dined on 9/12/2013
    Four of us went to celebrate neighbour's 70th b'day. The small kitchen & dining area is in the back of a beautiful old stone home on the river with nice views of the river and a garden. The ambience is that of fine dining at your best friend's beautiful old home. We each had an appetizer, entrée and desert and all rated them exquisitely delicious. The portions were just right, leaving us pleasantly full in spite of having polished our plates clean. A great evening and a wonderful find for future occasions.

    The dining area is at the back of an old stone house (now an inn). The dining area seats about 20, so it is very intimate. The food is prepared in the dining area - quietly, without fanfare. The tabletops are painted with "chalkboard paint" and we were provided with sidewalk chalk so we could decorate our table any way we liked. The food was amazing. I had the gnocchi with portobello mushrooms, Parmesan cheese, tomatoes, and slices of beef loin. I wanted more of their home baked bread. As an appetizer, we had the curried cauliflower (puréed) which was a surprising good dish - considering it is cauliflower. The menu is small, but caters to every taste.

    We enjoyed a delightful evening at the Almonte Riverside Kitchen. The service was excellent and it was great to see Trisha in her element, and to have her come and chat with us throughout the meal. The food was delish and beautifully presented; we will definitely come back.
