We have driven by a few times since we moved to Welland and wanted to try it. We were not disappointed. The maple baked brie was outstanding. My husband really liked the spaghetti. I found the pork schnitzel was missing something. The wait staff were friendly. We will go back.

The restaurant was very nicely decorated and the service and food were both fantastic, with very generous portions. We went in the daytime but would expect the views of the bridge to be very nice at night!

Really enjoyed the chowder dish yesterday. Was not expecting such an exquisite looking, and amazingly delicious dish. This one was a real winner. Will return to try out other gems. The waitress was very warm and friendly and did a great job.

We went to Taris for my friends birthday this year(like we've done for her last 2 birthdays). We were greeted very quickly by a super friendly and accommodating waiter, who was very attentive to our needs the entire time we were seating in the restaurant. The food was super good, we ordered an appetizer of gnocchi to share, a side salad each and I ordered the Atlantic Crispy Skin Salmon and she ordered a pasta dish. For dessert I got the sticky toffee pudding (AMAZING! With a scoop of ice cream and little crunchy sponge toffee bits) and my friend got the crème caramel. Everything was excellent. The music was lively and there was decent amount of people in the restaurant. Only complaint, and this is minor, is that the parking is not great, but the location is beautiful over looking the bridge and the canal so I can overlook the parking situation.

A lovely find, a few small tweaks and it could be outstanding.
One meal (gourmet burger) was too well done, and a simple waitstaff question should give diners an option on how meat is prepared.
Homemade cheesecake was outstanding.
Overall a pleasant experience and a great new find for me, and I am an old restauranteur by background.

This is hands down our favourite restaurant. We like the limited menu as you know everything will be fresh, the quality of the food never disappoints, the decor, atmosphere and friendly service make Taris stand out above the rest.
I would highly recommend dining here.

Best Welland restaurant for quality food and ambiance. Still the best tenderloin in the Region even at $45. Large cut, tender and moist. Sticky toffee pudding an amazing delicious surprise.

As newcomers to Welland, Taris on the Water had been recommended to me.
Family from Oshawa, friends from Ottawa wanted to sit near the Canal.
The restaurant's patio looks out to the Canal. There were canoes and kayaks travelling yesterday. More importantly, the service was super. Justen was extremely courteous and patient. The food when served was quite tasty. The hamburger and chicken were delicious. There was just a hint of extra taste in all our meals. Justin was quite knowledgeable about the beers as well. There were several local beers yo choose from on the menu. We were able to take our time with lunch.
We could enjoy our conversation. We all had a great lunch at Taris on the Water.
I would also like to thank Rachel for helping me with the reservation. Again her friendly, patient manner made me want to have other occasions to eat at Taris on the Water. Excellent restaurant. Many thanks.

I often come back from a meal at the restaurant and tell my husband that we could have cooked better at home. This was not the case when we ate at Taris on the Water. I was blown away at the flavours and presentation of each dish. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough... will be back for sure!!!
