The Manx

The Manx is a cozy, below ground level pub that is great for catching up with an old friend. If you decide to go however, give yourself some extra time, it's often quite difficult to get a seat. But it's worth the wait for the great food and service you'll experience. I've been many times for drinks or breakfast – probably one of the best breakfasts in Ottawa – but last night we went for dinner. Their epicurean fare is a refreshing change to your traditional pub fare. I always find it quite difficult to decide what to order when i've got a great menu in front of me. Luckily I wasn't starving, so I went with a light option of soup and crab cakes from the appetizers. The soup was a mushroom and red lentil soup that warmed the soul. The crab cakes, just short of a meal in itself, were served on warm curried carrots with sour beet relish and lemon-dill yoghurt. With that I had a Mill Street Coffee Porter, they have a great selection of beers on tap. They also have a large scotch selection for the scotch connoisseur. Prices are very reasonable, apps range from $6 to $12, sandwiches $12 and mains $13 to $15. Definitely a regular spot to go.
