Went here on a date recently. The atmosphere is cozy, and the staff are very friendly. I had the charred octopus, shrip tacos and duck spring rolls. Each dish was amazing! The shrimp tacos were especially good, it had mango and a coconut batter, both...More

Lucky to get a table for 2 at the last minute. What a find! Friendly, knowledgeable staff help make this tapas type dining experience very enjoyable. The food is beautifully presented, fresh and tasty. A real must try in Ottawa.

My husband and I had nice dinner in Aroma Meze. Like being in someone's home. Service good, wine nice and tappas good. Not great. The shrimp with gnocchi was good.

Welcome to Aroma Small Plates and Wine. The first of its kind in Canada! Come and enjoy "Meze" the food that reflects the way of life in Greek culture. Meze...an eating style, ancient in origin, favored in Greece and the Mediterranean. It is where eating is a hospitality and a celebration.
