Our kickoff lunch for the Summer of 2017’s search for the perfect patio in Ottawa found us sitting at a table inside at Mexi’s on Dow's Lake.
Since it was a gloomy day with 60% chance of rain, we ate indoors. Can’t fault the restaurant for the weather though, so on to our review.
Service. 4/5Long wait for second round of margaritas, otherwise it would have been 5/5
Food 3/5Appetizer platter was great! We all liked it. We ordered lunch off the lunch menu. It was okay, nothing that stood out.
Dessert was a hit. Churros and Deep Fried Cheesecake
Ambiance/Location3/5For a water view property, the windows sure could have used a cleaning but we are early in the season, so maybe that is on their list of things to do. Overall the place could use a good cleaning. The vibe was okay though, and our server was super nice.
Overall impression was 3/5
A good place to go for a casual bit to eat.
