Ottawa was our next stop on our road trip where we enjoyed dinner at Sur-Lie Restaurant one evening. My husband and I wanted to try it after reading many reviews, and we were not disappointed.  We were in fact blown away, and have been very eager to go back ever since.  The service was great, but the food was exceptional; it was tasty and delicious and still has us talking.  Our favorites were the appetizer (king crab dish) and the dessert.  For dessert I had the carrot cake, and I can honestly say that is has been the best carrot cake I have ever had.  The mains were also really good, but the appetizers and dessert were what blew us away.
