Love the atmosphere on the patio. It makes me feel like I'm on a vacation. The staff is always friendly an efficient. Our meals were very good. We had fish tacos and the broasted chicken. I was a bit disappointed that the bruschetta and antipasto plate weren't offered on the summer menu, but I guess that means I'll have to go back when it is. I highly recommend Taris on the Water.

Beautiful stop for cyclists along the canal side trail. Overlooking the water and the bridge.
So many great food choices. Very filling healthy meals. I recommend the "Welland Bowl" for vegans. My friends really enjoyed the fish and chicken.

Our server was incredible and very patient. Location is gorgeous, especially outside overlooking the canal. Food was good, but not amazing. Pancake in the duck dish was like cardboard and fish and chips was average, would have been better if it was served with just a few large chips rather than too many tiny chips.

The fish and chips were OK... but I always look forward to the coleslaw and it was not edible, it was drenched in mayo and not fresh at all...food could have been hotter upon arrival.

Bit disappointed cause I always order the Welland bowl, they changed it up and put quinoa instead of brown rice. Would prefer rice

First time out in over a year since the pandemic. Menu was a little smaller then we remembered but the food was just as amazing.
We go for the gluten free options. One of the few places that do gluten free calamari- so delicious.

The location is beautiful by the canal and the bridge. The service was efficient and friendly. My main dish; jerk hen; was mega tasty. The calamari had a little too much batter but still tasty. We loved our night out and would recommend all our friends to go.

The view is beautiful , and their little deck on the water is quaint. The menu item I ordered was the poke bowl which was just meh..not a lot of flavor. The server took her time bringing a to go container and the bill. Maybe id go back for a drink.

Everything about our lunch was wonderful from beginning to end. From the signature cocktail that was smooth and satisfying, to the unique ceasar that was one of the best I have had, to the amazing fish and frites, there was nothing to disappoint. And sitting by the water was as peaceful and restorative as you can get.

I will return for sure.
