The Canal Bistro is the realization of a dream for Mona and George Hanna. George's homeland is Egypt; Mona spent her first 23 years in Lebanon. They know Mediterranean cooking. George has been in the restaurant business for 22 years. And over the years, Mona watched her mother and grandmother cook for their big family from their own herb and vegetable gardens, learning the value of freshness in cooking.

George says. "It's been our dream to open our own place, to be creative with cuisine, and to have a family business that our sons can be a part of."

The Canal Bistro is that dream. "It's like you've come to one of our parties -- we've basically just moved our kitchen from home to here," they say. "We put the grill in the dining room because we want people to know that we are using top quality ingredients, and that freshness is our goal, so everything is done right in front of you."

So eat up, relax, be happy. You're eating in a dream come true!

This was our first time at Canal Bistro and we will go back. Wonderful Mediterranean food, fun atmosphere and attentive and friendly wait staff. We've been told that their outdoor seating along the canal is great, so we'll return when it warms up. The only downside was that the dining area isn't very big and they had two large groups celebrating, so we had to literally shout to hear one another. Once the groups left, it was quiet and much more enjoyable.

I was very disappointed they weren't serving breakfast. The big sign outside said Breakfast Saturday and Sunday with no end times. We were there at 1pm brunch is typically served till 2 or 3 pm most places.

Canal Bistro is one of our go-to favorites for any occasion. With family visiting for Christmas, we wanted a tasty, healthy, quiet lunch and George and company nailed it on all counts. CB is an excellent alternative for weekend brunches or anytime you'd like either delicious Mediterranean fare of something a bit different. Locally owned, with terrific staff and some kind of magic in the kitchen--overlooking the Broad Ripple canal.

What's not to love?

Lamb Kebob was poor to fair. Meat was overcooked, tough and dry. Overall, food could have been better seasoned.
