Dresden’s first Canadian restaurant – right in the heart of the baroque old city, with a view of the world-famous Church of Our Lady. The excellent restaurant invites you to experience the Canadian way of life in a variety of ways.
The elegant furniture and fittings, which combine the natural materials of stone, wood and leather in harmony, awaken your curiosity about the food and drinks in this expansive North American country. Canadian cuisine is just as varied as the unique natural world and the fun-loving people of the world’s second-largest country.
The varied selection of fish and seafood, wild Canadian salmon, monkfish or lobster on the menu (depending on the season) spirit you away to the wide open space of Canada. Tender, juicy lamb or bison steaks, or delicious roast elk or caribou are always available – as is a delicacy popular with gourmets all over the world: a perfectly prepared Wagyu steak.
In addition to delicious Saskatoonberries, delicate fern tips and mouth-watering maple syrup, Canadian cuisine is also famous for the excellent Canadian wines from the Peele Island or Niagara Falls (near the renowned waterfalls) wine producing regions.
Canada – the second largest country on earth
From a historical point of view, Canada is a relatively young country, as it only became an autonomous nation in 1867, and declared its independence from England in 1982. However, its history looks back as far as the first settlements of the Vikings and Métis and even further back to its native inhabitants – the Indians and Inuit, who populated the long coastlines, enormous mountain ranges and amazing forests. Today, Canada combines ancient traditions and modern art and is a popular destination for immigrants, making it a multicultural nation.
The ONTARIO restaurant is named after the second-largest and most densely populated province of Canada. The word “Ontario” comes from the Iroquois language and means “sparkling water” or “beautiful lake”. A fitting name, as Ontario borders on Lakes Erie and Ontario in the south and the spectacular Hudson Bay in the north. In total, the province has around 250,000 lakes.
