It’s such a treat to have wonderful food prepared for you. So my beloved and I will be treating ourselves to a Valentine meal at Castlegarth Restaurant.

If you’re ever in the Ottawa Valley, you HAVE to make room for a least one meal at Castlegarth. They were the first restaurant that I ever heard talking about local food – and they seem miles ahead of everyone else. When you’re there, ask about their restaurant garden. During our first meal there – two summers ago – we commented on the tomatoes that were served in our salads. The next thing we knew our server was giving us an impromptu tomato-tasting session with tomatoes that had been picked by the owners that afternoon. Needless to say, we have been dedicated fans of Castlegarth ever since.
