Your Winnipeg Restaurant Guide with Winnipeg's Top Restaurants and Nightlife.
We’ve arrived! After a slow and steady climb from the bottom of the pack of Canada’s culinary destinations, Winnipeg has claimed a top-tier position when it comes to food in Canada. We’ve long been billed as the underdog, but that designation is rapidly evaporating as a host of bold chefs—and surprising new culinary concepts—take hold in our city. From our impressive line-up of authentically ethnic restaurants and monthly pop-up dinners, to our festival flavours and food truck offerings, there’s a tempting and tasty treat around every corner. Join us as we explore what’s hot, what’s cool and most importantly—what’s delicious on the streets of this Prairie town.
MANITOBA PIZZA WEEK
Thirty-nine restaurants compete for top ‘za honours
Thick crust. Thin crust. Extra cheese. Pineapple. An egg on top. No matter how you build a pizza in this town, Winnipeggers will eat it up. And they’ll get a chance to sample some bold new creations during Manitoba Pizza Week, June 4 to 10.

WINNIPEG RESTAURANT REVIEWS
Good things come in small packages here. The resto has a scant 36 seats, sprinkled across the main floor of this old house. The best seats in the house are near the windows, overlooking a wide yard and then Sherbrook Street. There’s something nostalgic and romantic about the space that invites conversation or simply window gazing.
