If you're looking to make plans for the perfect night out, there's no better area than the Niagara Region. With so many great options available, we want to really show you the breadth of what is available throughout Niagara. Follow along as we go through our favourite restaurants so that you can experience the best of this region!
This is an incredible restaurant that has undergone a careful renovation in order to respect its perfect historical touches. The updates provide a comfortable and relaxing dining atmosphere, perfect for that special occasion. Nestled along the scenic Niagara River on the Niagara Parkway, The Lighthouse Restaurant serves a great selection of comfort food. This is definitely the place to take your special someone for a perfect night out.
Backhouse Restaurant is a must visit if you're looking to create the perfect night out! With integrated cool climate cuisine, enlightened hospitality, and a brick oven that burns peach wood, it is clear the staff has worked hard to provide a culinary journey for all the senses. The team of dedicated sommeliers and service professionals work with local wine, beer, and spirit producers in order to showcase the best the community has to offer. Be sure to stop in often to experience all the delicacies their continuously evolving menu has to offer.
Old Bank Bistro is one of our all-time favourite places to go to in Fort Erie. Although most of our visits are in the summer (the covered alleyway patio is to die for), the charming interior and wonderful staff make this a great spot for the perfect night out! The atmosphere brought about by the unique and historical décor really gives the whole restaurant an extremely approachable feeling that really seeps into the conversation. As for the food, be prepared to clean your plate because they know how to cook!
The Tide and Vine is one of our absolute favourite seafood restaurants to visit. The casual aesthetic of the restaurant is perfect for those nights that you want to do something special without being overly extravagant. Starting from the company's humble roots of shucking oysters from a 1974 VW Camper Van, Tide and Vine has stuck to its mission to "bring the sea to Niagara"; showcasing the bounty of local and seasonal items from the surrounding area. We highly recommend you get the chowder and sample the many oyster options, all creatively prepared from several top source locations. This is sure to become one of your new favourites as well!
Ravine Vineyard is a fifth-generation family farm that has seen tremendous growth with its commitment to locally sourced food. The restaurant itself is part of this promise which includes the farm's organic vineyard and winery, sprawling kitchen garden and grocery, distinctive event venues, community gatherings, and more! With an ever-changing carousel of ingredients from their kitchen garden and other nearby farms, Ravine creates award-winning culinary experiences that can't be missed. We highly recommend you check out this restaurant and its foraged menu offerings in order to truly eat locally.
