Located within the Casino du Lac-Leamy, Le Baccara makes dining an elegant affair. Complete with rich fabrics and handsome furnishings, it feels a world away from the buzzing excitement of the gaming floor. Having received the CAA-AAA Five Diamond distinction for the past ten years, this is a restaurant that has staked a claim at the top of Ottawa’s dining scene. Enjoy the French-influenced cuisine, made with market-fresh ingredients, and be sure to order a bottle of vino from the wine cellar, which houses 500 different varieties as part of a 13,000-bottle collection. 1, boul. du Casino, Gatineau, 819-772-6210.
