If you want great authentic cajun food and a funky atmosphere, try the Ousi Bisto. The service is terrific and if you happen to arrive for a late dinner on Friday or Saturday night, you get treated to some live jazz or blues.

Went with a friend (in costume) for Saturday night Oct 29th. The place was decked out for Hallowe'en (not one of my favourite holidays) and the staff were stoked for a fun night. I had only been there once (for a drink) and never tried the food but it was so good, I took a doggie bag home and am... More

We had gone to a play at the Stanley Theater. after that we wanted dinner but were not sure where to go. We walked up the street and there was the Ouisi. The menu looked inviting so in we went. The décor was bourbon street and so was the music. we found the service was excellent. We all enjoyed our... More

We met for a Saturday brunch and were totally disappointed. The staff were very slow and appeared not to be engaged. The food and cocktails were very mediocre. Table tops had not been cleaned for some time so I was concerned about the cleanliness of the kitchen. My dish only had three bits of sausage. I am sorry to say... More

A New Orleans style restaurant with the signature beignets and perfect mint juleps- they are harder to make than you think. Cowboy breakfast and cornbread perfect

Went for brunch. Very delicious eggs benedict with authentic hollandaise sauce. They serve organic tea and free run eggs. The potatoes were very tasty and had a pinch of spice. Service was attentive and polite. Has a jazzy atmosphere.Would go back again.

The Ouisi is a New Orleans style place that is quite authentic. We generally go there for jazz fest and have a great night out. However this year we were very disappointed in our experience. The usual great service has gone down hill. We did not seem to get the attention that we have seen in past years. The food... More

We had heard that the crab cakes were great so wanted to try them. Disappointing. The corn chutney was ok. The corn bread was stale. The poutine with the cajun sauce was too soggy and the sauce was bitter. The service was great.

Had been wanting to try Ouisi Bostro for years. It has been in the same location as long as I can remember so thought it must be a "well oiled machine" when it comes to both food and service. Sadly that was not the case. The server who went through the motions of serving our table, on a night when... More

My friends and I sat out back in a cute secluded patio and enjoyed dinner together. The seafood creole was delicious as was the dessert! The inside decor was very jazzy and had an ambient mood. Overall it was a nice experience!

Staying in South Granville

Neighbourhood Profile
South Granville
The neighbourhood closest to the airport, a generous mix of locals and tourists populate the area. The blend has made it a go-to spot to find an eclectic collection of entertainment, from theatres and cinemas, to antique stores and last-minute kitsch souvenir shops. It gives off a transient vibe, and is one of the more higgledy-piggledy areas in terms of what you'll find, making it a fun area to explore and map out, all while taking in the hectic atmosphere of people coming and going, while others look for the best ways to spend their last few hours in the city.
