Most Eco Friendly Restaurant
Canada’s 100 Best, 2018

Canada's Top 10
Wine Enthusiast, 2017
“Sal Howell sets the standard for fine and future dining in this increasingly hot wine and food city. Mature vintages come from a cellar that’s survived two floods in 26 years on Prince’s Island.”
Seasonal Canadian Cuisine
Our culinary focus stems from a deep respect for the ingredients. We are dedicated to sourcing the best tasting local ingredients in season. We connect directly with growers and producers at their farms, gardens and ranches, and carefully choose those purveyors who are responsible stewards of the land.
As leader and advocate for sustainable local farming, River Café is a true reflection of its surroundings using indigenous and local ingredients to create a seasonal, authentic Canadian cuisine.
