    My wife and myself dined at Gitanes for our 10th wedding anniversary and it was unbelievable. The staff was very welcoming, friendly, and really made our experience special. The food and the wine were matched perfectly and were very delectable. It’s been two days since we went and we are still talking about the delicious meal. We’ve found our favorite restaurant.

    Food and service is always outstanding. Unfortunately, this time I was seated right in front of an air conditioning unit ( along the window) that blew cold air on me and made my food very cold in seconds. Seems petty I know but I like my food at a good temperature. Nonetheless, I will be back because it’s my new favourite restaurant in Ottawa.

    Had a wonderful experience for our 17th anniversary: the tasting menu with "nouveau" wine pairing. Service was impeccable, striking the delicate balance between friendly and unobtrusive.

    It’s a good restaurant but I find it extremely expensive for what you receive. I had the steak frites … the sauces that accompanied were amazing! Fries seemed double cooked and not that good …maybe try cooking in lard/tallow… tastes better and much healthier Server was fantastic.. We would likely return but not quickly

    This meal was splendid. It reminded us of the wonderful flavour innovations we get when we travel in Europe. The location is surrounded by energy but feels relaxed. The service was incredible. I'm not sure if the waiter was an owner but he demonstrated a knowledge of the wines and dishes that was very much appreciated. I'm so glad we went. It is now on our short list of places to bring friends and visitors.
