4 of us dined and we had the calamari & ceasar salad as appes and 2 hamburgers, 1 fish & chips and 1 duck. All were excellent with the exception of the duck that was carved as a thick slab and no obvious sweetness to accompany it. Will have the hamburger next time.

Had lunch at Taris On the Water on September 24/21. The view overlooking the Welland Canal was great. We shared the burratini and oysters as starters and both were excellent. Our mains were the fish tacos, and the falafel tacos. Both type of tacos were amazing.
Our server, Easton was exceptional. Friendly service and knowledgeable regarding all items on the menu.
Would definitely come back again to try the dinner menu!

We selected this restaurant because it was on the way to where we were going and it had high reviews. We arrived and from the small parking lot we were a little confused as to how to access the place, but ventured onto the patio and, voila, the entrance. It overlooks the canal for added ambiance. The small dining room is lovely, maybe not as posh as I expected, but clean and comfortable. But the highlight was the food. It was amazing! I ordered the recommended Grilled Beef Tenderloin with porcini cream, crushed fingerlings and charred rapini. Cooked to perfection with some added shrimp it was delicious. Go and try it-your palate will thank you!

We enjoyed the food, the service was excellent, and I had a great dining experience because the Chef, and his Sous Chef, were very thorough and careful in accommodating my food allergies. Well done!

The only issue I had was the water we were served in a large pitcher. The water tasted unpleasant. Perhaps you should consider purified water.

The food is always super at Taris and so is the staff - We dined outside and I found it
I was a little chilly as the wind seems to be cool in evening. I will start to dine inside until next summer.

We are out of towners and looking for a casual upscale restaurant. This location fit the bill. Great location but parking was minimal. Made reservation on line easily. Server was very friendly and attentive. My wife raved about her salmon , although she said it was just warm, but was the right temp with the side of noodle salad. My filet was large but slightly overcooked (ordered medium rare but came closer to medium. Otherwise this was a great meal and the ambiance next to the lighted lift bridge was terrific. Would highly recommend.

Lovely evening on the Patio overlooking the water. Food was really good and service was excellent (thank you Karen).
Enjoyed the oysters to start with a perfectly made Cosmo. Had the Beef Lettuce wraps for dinner and they were perfect for a smaller apatite. My family also had the duck, and the Jerk hen and both looked wonderful.
Love that they do corkage too as we were able to bring our favourite bottle of wine to enjoy with the meal.
We will be back again soon. :)

Was upset a bit with wait time - 45 minutes between drinks and appetizer. Nothing in-between. But appetizers and food were good so we were satisfied at the end. Nice canal view. I think I Well come back.
