West de Castro
"In the final gasps of 2016 I had one of the best meals of the year at the little Bank Street restaurant called Clover
...West de Castro is plating some of the most interesting, creative, and polished food in the city. And dishing it up at pretty democratic prices."
"Is there any restaurant in Ottawa you think is under-appreciated?
Clover. West de Castro’s Roasted Brassicas with White Bean Purée and Almond “Brown Butter” is one dish that I tested and I just couldn’t believe how good it was … and beautiful! It’s a vegan dish and it will convert you."
"West de Castro’s food deserved to be ordered and enjoyed."
"...what I’ve tasted during my dinner and lunch visits has been tasty and smile-inducing as well as straightforward, cleanly conceived and fairly priced."
Et de fait, sa nourriture mérite d'être reconnue et appréciée. Elle affiche une belle générosité en cuisine. Plein de saveurs, des plats modernes, bien imaginés, originaux.
