The Courtyard Restaurant

Ottawa, Ontario
K1N 8W5

Map to Our Venue (thanks to Google maps).

Please note there is no free parking in the Byward Market. There are two parking garages run by the City of Ottawa within a five minute walk of our venue. If staying at a hotel in downtown Ottawa, I would recommend leaving your car at the hotel and walking to our venue.

We realize this venue can be a bit tricky to find, due to its somewhat hidden location. The restaurant is located in a courtyard, which is formed by several restaurants, including The Courtyard Restaurant, Social, The Black Tomato, Mamma Grazzi's and Helsinki. Once you've parked your car, head back through the Market to George Street, just off Sussex. You'll see signs for Helsinki and Mamma Grazzi's, and a passageway into the Courtyard that has a sign for The Courtyard Restaurant. The Courtyard's own website also provides excellent instructions: Map and Driving Instructions.
