Table Rock House Restaurant in Niagara Falls

Table Rock House Restaurant

If you’re looking to enjoy a delicious meal with stunning views of the falls, there is no better place to go than the Table Rock House Restaurant.

This FeastON Certified restaurant sources many of its ingredients right from Niagara as well as Ontario. They pride themselves on supporting Ontarian farmers and producers as well as brewers and distillers. At the helm is Chef Matt Krupa, a graduate of the Niagara College Culinary Management Program who has trained internationally in Europe focusing on old French-based cuisine while tying in international inspirations and flavours.

One thing I love about Table Rock is that its menu changes seasonally and there is no shortage of incredible dishes. From warm, cozy pastas to light and filling fish dishes, there’s plenty to offer all palettes. Plus they offer a Prix Fixe Menu of three courses for $65 which includes a starter, entrée and dessert. This way you can get a real feel of what Chef Krupa has to offer! Take a look at the full menu here.

Another thing I adore about Table Rock is that it’s owned by Niagara Parks, the ones that bring you Journey Behind the Falls, Currents at the Power Station and many other iconic Niagara Falls attractions. That means all earnings go to this organization which maintains the entire Niagara Parkway – and they do a fantastic job I might add.

The Table Rock House Restaurant can be a busy spot in the summer, especially on weekends so reservations are recommended.

Havana Restaurant in Niagara Falls

Havana Restaurant

One of the newest restaurants in Niagara Falls, enjoy a taste of the tropics without the hassle of the airport! The bright turquoise walls and vibrant decor will have you dreaming of the beach.

Chances are you’ll be greeted by Daelys who owns Havana Restaurant. He is incredibly attentive and his passion for sharing his culture shows through with every interaction. As the name suggests, you’ll find a range of Cuban eats on the menu. Now I’ve heard many people say Cuban food can be lacking in flavour – and that’s certainly NOT the case here! Daelys specially sources a number of ingredients which elevates these dishes to a whole new level.

While the menu isn’t massive, there’s a wide variety of flavours. I cannot recommend the ropa vieja enough. I honestly didn’t know beef could be so juicy! Plus the portions are fantastic and there’s a high possibility of leftovers which is always a win in my books. Whether you opt for a variety of appetizers or one of their larger meals, make sure you save room for dessert. You don’t want to miss out on their churros!

Vittorio's Ristorante in the Fallsview Casino

Vittorio’s in the Fallsview Casino

Over the years, the Fallsview Casino has become a one-stop destination. In previous visits, I’ve found that the food is typically what was lacking… until I visited Vittorio’s Italian Eatery. This is easily some of the best Italian food in Niagara Falls.

Don’t let its location in the food court fool you as this restaurant offers an upscale atmosphere with elegant decor and private booths. Vittorio’s menu provides a wide range of eats that will transport your taste buds to Italy. One thing to note is that you won’t find any pizza on their menu, however the variety of pasta dishes is spectacular. Ravioli, gnocchi, orecchiette… you get the idea. If you’re a fan of seafood, I highly recommend the spaghetti alla pescatora, especially with a drizzle of their chilli oil.

No matter what you choose to indulge in, make sure you order their bruschetta con burrata. You can thank me later.

Taku Sushi & Ramen in Niagara Falls
Salmon Lover Combo at Taku Sushi & Ramen

Taku Sushi & Ramen

Taku Sushi & Ramen is a quaint Japanese restaurant in the heart of Niagara Falls. Offering some of the freshest fish in the city, you can guarantee quality eats in a calm atmosphere.

The menu has plenty of Japanese eats from appetizers like takoyaki and calamari to sushi pizza and softshell crab. Feel free to order whatever your heart desires as there is certainly a variety to choose from, though I absolutely love their combos. The salmon combo is my favourite with six pieces of salmon sashimi, four pieces of salmon sushi, six pieces of spicy crispy salmon roll along with their house salad and miso soup. Salmon lovers will adore it!

While their offerings do skew heavily on seafood, there are still plenty of land meats for those who aren’t a fan of the sea eats. Plus their ramen is the perfect way to warm up on a chilly winter day!

Insider Tip:
If you’re a fan of ramen, they have a special on Tonkotsu ramen on Thursdays!

If you’re able to, snag one of their booths. Each one has a privacy curtain offering a more intimate and cozy dining experience! It’s a great date night spot in Niagara Falls.

Pints at Counterpart Brewing
Beers at Counterpart Brewing

Counterpart Brewing

Located in the north end of Niagara Falls, Counterpart Brewing is the perfect spot for a low key, casual hangout. They’ve been serving up fantastic beers from hazy IPAs to fruity sours since 2019.

Their menu has a heavy focus on hand held eats ranging from light nibbles to hearty meals. A few dishes have an Asian spin which I find is unique to breweries. If you’re looking for some great beer and food pairings, Counterpart Brewing has you covered! Be sure to take a peek at their features board for their latest concoctions before you order.

Counterpart Brewing is a great spot to bring the family (yes, it’s a family-friendly brewery!) in the summer months as they have a number of games you can enjoy on their expansive patio. Let the little ones play a few rounds of cornhole while you enjoy a pint or get in on the fun. The patio is also dog-friendly so bring along your furry family members, too!

Somehow despite visiting numerous times, I don’t have a food photo in my repertoire… I guess I’ll have to return so I can fix that!
