Whalesbone Oyster House

Seafood in Ottawa

If the local chefs are purchasing their fish from Whalesbone's wholesale wing (or should we say 'fin'), then there's really no doubt that it's the best place in town for seafood. The on-site restaurant offers up a short list of fresh faves such as oysters, lobster and scallops ceviche on small plates. Book ahead.

Another branch opened at 231 Elgin St in 2016.
