Where to eat in Niagara Falls ?

Before setting out on a road trip, I like to put together a list of recommended restaurants.

It saves me time searching once I get there and, more importantly, it helps me avoid tourist traps. 

If you're like me, and you're planning a Canadian vacation, more specifically to Niagara Falls, don't hesitate to take note of these 5 addresses

#1. Tide & Vine Oyster House

Seafood lovers take note, this place is a must for you!

Everything is fresh and extremely tasty, not to mention the service which is simply impeccable

The house specialty is, of course, the fresh oysters, but the sesame-crusted albacore tuna and Kat's seafood chowder are also outstanding!

Reservations are highly recommended, as the place is quite small, and very charming! 

You'll definitely want to spend a good part of the evening here.

#2. Casa Mia Ristorante

The restaurant offers exceptional value for money and impeccable service. 

As for the decor, the dining room is absolutely magnificent

A successful evening guaranteed, provided you make a reservation

Here, freshness is the order of the day.

For Chef Cory Linkson, it is important to have complete control over the quality of the products used in his kitchen.  

The ingredients are picked every morning at AG Farm, and served that night to their guests. 

It doesn't get fresher than that!

The French, American and contemporary dishes are executed to perfection, and always tasty

Even the most discerning palate will be delighted!
