Carmen’s Veranda pleases palates of all persuasions with lunch and dinner menus stocked with dishes made from fresh, local ingredients, and an upscale wine list to match.

For dinner, tipple a glass of Alpha Zeta valpolicella before relishing jerked chicken breast, plate-paired with mango bread pudding and fennel slaw ($23), or calculate the central angles of congruent arcs in a taste-bud-tantalizing gruyere and asparagus pizza ($18).

Dappled in bright reds, warm oranges, and soothing ceruleans, Carmen’s Veranda maintains a stylish, vibrant atmosphere, an ideal setting in which to nab an after-work bite or meet a blind date’s parents.
- He had a delicious squash, onion and asiago frittata, but the standout by far was my roasted red pepper quiche - creamy texture, delectable flavour. – Chris, Urbanspoon
- Carmen's Veranda offers good quality food, prepared (usually) by Carmen herself, a serious cook, who makes imaginative dishes sourced with excellent quality ingredients. – Traveller1000Ottawa, TripAdvisor
Vibrant paintings by local Canadian artists speckle the orange and yellow walls of Carmen’s Veranda, gazing down on the tabletops that bear plates of eclectic international fare. These dishes, which may include chili-marinated chicken breast with ginger and orange yam mash, are, like a Gelatin mold of Rodin's The Thinker, often referred to as “edible works of arts” by customers. The menu switches items every month, and each new dish is made from fresh ingredients picked daily by local producers. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, customers can bring in their own wine, and on Wednesdays, they can devour various small plates inspired by different international cuisines.
