They're in "the tourist zone" but this restaurant's food, service, and atmosphere would be successful no matter where they chose to locate. Delicious, authentic, wood oven pizza. If you crave variety or just can't make up your mind about pizza toppings, try the quattro stagioni ! Free parking. Great cocktails (highly recommend their Caesar!).

Japanese/Thai all you can eat restaurant. Very popular, features ipad ordering. Great way to sample something you've never tried (sushi can be ordered by the piece) and I'm sure all your favourites are on the menu as well. Reservations recommended.

Almost every single one of my guests has had a meal here. Local and tourist favourite for terrific Greek and Mediterranean cuisine. Well priced. Excellent and friendly service, also has a nice patio.

I don't get out to lunch nearly often enough but today I had an opportunity and I wanted to check this place out. Turned out to be a great idea! Very cute place, absolutely reminiscent of a Parisian bistro, and eye-catching on the exterior with its Tour Eiffel ! The cafe latte and the galette gourmande definitely hit the spot. Brunch menu is served daily, and dinner menu is also available. Reservations are probably a good idea for dinner. Located in the heart of downtown which is NOT at the Falls and therefore not really as tourist-oriented. Worth a visit!

The Keg Steakhouse Fallsview (9th floor of Embassy Suites hotel) has a superb location directly overlooking the Horseshoe (Canadian) Falls. Lunch is the best time to go! The restaurant is usually not too busy at lunch and you are likely to be seated right at the window. Valet parking is included with your reservation. The menu offers something for everyone and not only steak (I love the lobster salad or the fish tacos!), and you will see the Falls from a unique perspective that's quite incredible. Excellent service.

Things to do during the day
There is no shortage of things to do in Niagara Falls. In fact, there are so many that I've had to split them into multiple lists!
This is a great place to start your visit to the Falls.

I'd classify this one as a "must do". Niagara Falls visitors have been putting on those plastic rain ponchos and motoring to the base of the Horseshoe Falls since I was a child. It's especially refreshing on a hot day ;) and you cannot help but be awed by your proximity to the thundering power of this Wonder of the World.

Factory One Outlet centre is just a 3 minute walk from Bonbini Home, on Lundy's Lane. While it is considerably smaller than the Fashion Outlet Mall (Niagara On The Lake) there are some good deals to be found here. Stokes (kitchen ware) has great service and excellent deals. This is also true of The Body Shop where the staff are quite knowledgeable and many popular and seasonal items are discounted at this location. Laura (ladies' wear in petite, regular, and plus), Alia, Coach, OshKosh, Guess, La Vie en Rose, and Samsonite are also among the stores. Lots of free parking, and not as much walking as the larger outlet mall. Well worth a look.

Wineries and wine tasting
This is a smaller estate winery that produces fabulous wines of many varieties. Among the best in Niagara Region in my opinion. Their chardonnays (oaked, or sur lees), pinot noir, riesling (dry), pinot grigio are all excellent. At the tasting counter you can purchase ice wine in dark chocolate shooter cups (wow!) and wine slushies. Order a charcuterie/cheese platter, take a seat indoors or (seasonally) on the patio, and give Pondview's knowledgeable staff a chance to impress you.

Conseils sur la ville

Se déplacer dans les environs
Do not miss out on WEGO transportation, cheaper than parking
Niagara’s WEGO hop on/hop off tourist bus system consists of 3 lines that, combined, will take you to virtually any attraction in Niagara Falls area. Parking at the Falls is expensive and getting a spot close to the Falls is difficult. Consider the convenience of leaving your car in the driveway here, and walking 2 minutes up the street to board the WeGo red line. Adults & children 13 & up 24 hour pass $9.00 48 hour pass $13.50 Children 12 & under 24 hour pass $6.00 48 hour pass $10.00
