Quietly tucked away in a small strip-mall in uptown Niagara On The Lake is one of Canada's leading restaurants. Backhouse offers continuously evolving tasting menus with a commitment to integrated cool climate cuisine and enlightened hospitality. Once one finds Backhouse the aroma of peach wood burning in the brick oven and glow of the wood-fired grill lets guests know that they are not out for dinner but rather that they are embarking on a culinary journey of somewhereness.

    Full tasting menu was the right choice. Did not choose the wine pairings so cannot comment on that. The Clos Jordanne Pinot (2017) complemented everything presented. Each course was interesting and delicious. The style was adventurous and a great example of craftsmanship. Four of us at the table. We all enjoyed every dish. Service was friendly, informative and unrushed.

    We were greeted warmly upon arrival by the host. When we were seated we were brought a glass of bubbly; nice touch. We opted for the Chef's Tasting menu with wine pairings. We were not disappointed. Each course was very good, and the wines a great match. Even the glass of vermouth! I wish we were able to purchase wines from local wineries during our stay in NOTL. Most of the wines were from a "satellite vineyard" we were told by our waitress. That was a little disappointing. Perhaps a little long; we arrived at 8pm and were out by 11:30pm. We'd recommend and return!

    Great restaurant. The food, service and ambiance were amazing. They went above and beyond to accommodate the food restrictions in our party. Would absolutely go there again for dinner.

    The Backhouse is not a typical dining experience. Every course is a delicacy. It’s a delicious adventure with an excellent vibe. Service is impeccable.
