    The Belmont is by far, one of the most delicious and ecclectic eateries in Ottawa. Last night did not disappoint! I'm not certain how one can render a mere sweet potato into a roasted festival of deliciousness...but the Belmont did. The mushroom fondue was simply divine! For a combination of wonderful food, cozy ambience and excellent service, the Belmont hits on all marks. It is ALWAYS a sure thing!

    The food and service were amazing. We did the family style meal and everything was delicious, well-balanced and so flavourful. Will be dreaming about the super juicy piri piri chicken with the crispiest skin. Cocktails were great and super professional and friendly service all around. Can’t wait to go back.

    Recently had brunch at the Belmont. Space is small so the noise level can be high when full. Good selection of brunch options including vegetarian. My meal was ok although the pulled pork that I had was dry and tough and the dough in the Trini Doubles I ordered was also dry - the rest of the filling and scrambled eggs I had were tasty.

    On passe toujours un bon moment au Belmont ! Près de la moitié des choix sont végétariens, et le service est à la fois pro et très sympa. Seul bémol, le vin au verre est assez cher, surtout pour les portions servies. Un 4-5 onces presque au prix d’une bouteille, c’est un peu exagéré. Nous reviendrons cependant, les cocktails sont originaux et délicieux. Et pour les Trini doubles, of course !

    The Belmont is a wonderful place for dinner. The service is friendly and casual, the atmosphere cozy and inviting, but the best thing is the eclectic food , with strange ingredients, that somehow blend to make the most delicious plates. Honestly, their cook is simply a master. If you are into interesting and well balanced food, then this is the place to be!

    I had never before been to the Belmont. I was very pleasantly surprised. The wait staff were knowledgeable, friendly (but not too much so), and attentive. The food was excellent, a combination of unusual flavours for brunch. The restaurant was not as noisy as some and did not have recorded music people felt they had to talk over. I was there for two hours and found everything good, but I found the cushionless chair a trifle uncomfortable after an hour or so. However, overall it was an unexpectedly excellent experience.

    This was my second visit to Belmont in 2 years and I cannot say enough about the food. First, the Trini Double is a must as a starter. The sides are spectacular: we tried the Patatas Bravas (amazing, perfect to share with 3-4 ppl) as well as the Mushroom fondue (mixed shrooms with Gruyère. Need I say more? Good for 2-3 ppl). The mains (!!) Always original and inventive, but also oh so comforting. I tried the Birria Jalisco (slow briased goat). SPECTACULAR *chef's kiss*. Other mains enjoyed we're the duck breast, Piri Piri Chicken (use the Trini Double hot sauce for extra kick) and the Beef Tataki. Great restaurant for a date night, or double-date with partners or friends. They encourage sharing plates with the table,and due to a small kitchen,dishes will not be served necessary all at once, so just be prepared and go with the flow. The quality of the food is worth the wait :)

    The Belmont is one of my fave Resto a in Bytown! Food, music vibe, ambience, amazing cocktails are all top shelf. It’s a bit on pricy side but the overall experience makes it worth it. Re. Noise - I rate the locale as 4 stars - but “energetic” is not the correct description I feel. The full Resto is VERY noise and near end of dinner (8pm) it became difficult to hear my table mate, sitting just in front me. Maybe time to invest in some acoustic tiles for the ceiling ?!? Other than that small issue, excellent locale. I would highly recommend

    Found this place on Open Table and agree wholeheartedly with the rave reviews. The food, ambience, service was top notch. Tip - the family style meat and family style vegetable packages fed 4 of us starting with the infamous and tasty Trini doubles and ended with cheese cake. Great price and more than enough food. Highly recommend
