With summer upon us, we at Marina Homes wanted to share our favourite restaurants for a romantic date in the Niagara Region. It is well passed time to shrug off any lingering winter hibernation feelings and enjoy all the season has to offer with food, drink, and good company! Read along for some great local restaurants that offer that ambience and great food you're looking for to help woo that special someone.
Weinkeller in Niagara Falls is a restaurant and craft winery well known for its offering of superb red and white wines, range of beer options, and mouth-watering food. It is worth noting that the staff is extremely knowledgeable and pleasant; able to give superb recommendations for matching the wine and food menu. Be on the lookout for their highly sought after charcuterie board, complete with steak tartar, various cheeses, candied salmon and bright pickled vegetables to compliment! With their prix fixe menu option you can have a wonderful sampling of the mains, appetizers, desserts, and drinks available. Weinkeller will also offer live – demure – music from time to time as a welcome accompaniment to the meal. This is definitely the place to try for any special occasion.
The Old Bank Bistro is one of those restaurants you usually hear about through word of mouth, known well by the locals and stumbled upon by those traveling through. Do yourself a favour and stop in at this hidden gem in Fort Erie which provides an intimate yet casual atmosphere with a covered courtyard dining room and excellent array of menu options. In fact, they're known to specialize in AAA Angus steaks, fresh seafood, Italian pastas, and authentic Greek dishes. Our personal favourites were the Buffalo Chicken Pasta and the grilled Salmon dish, not to mention the incredible bruschetta! Of course we would be doing a great disservice if we didn't mention the wonderfully friendly and welcoming atmosphere this restaurant provides. If you're lucky you may run into the owner Peter, who is more than happy to talk with the diners and provide helpful tips on other neat stops around town.
Massimo's Italian Fallsview Restaurant is another restaurant from Niagara Falls that absolutely had to make our list. The breathtaking view alone is enough to draw anyone to the restaurant, especially during the summer when the Falls' illumination and fireworks displays are going on. However, the food is not to be ignored! The farm-to-table cuisine offered by chef Massimo Capra is exquisite and surprisingly large considering the "fine dining" tag. For every course served, you are told what is in the dish, and where the ingredients came from. Once again, the staff here is exceptionally knowledgeable and caring, making sure your experience is a special one.
We hope you enjoyed this list of but a few great romantic restaurants within the Niagara region. With options like these you're sure to have a special evening no matter who you choose to spend it with.
