Beautiful canadian nature
The town itself
In a nutshell
I went to La Belle Verte with 3 friends of mine. This restaurant is a co-op run by women and is the only raw restaurant in Ottawa and Gatineau, imagine that. It took me by surprise that it was in Gatineau and not in Ottawa, and in a rather shady street as well, I would say. At least there were drunk people on the street and what looked like drug addicts, but then who I am to judge, eh?
A friend of mine was doing a 100 day raw food diet, so that is why we chose this restaurant, and I have been vegan for decades, so I liked this choice.
I liked this restaurant, the walls have very cheerful, colourful paintings on them, the service was excellent and relaxed. The food was excellent and you could even get some fortune telling cards by the till and take them to your table while you were eating. But this being Gatineau in Quebec everything was in French.
There were quite a few people in this restaurant, so it seems to be popular and even two big guys, who looked a bit dangerous, came in and had a salat. This teaches me a lesson to never judge a book by its cover.
Favorite Dish: The raw Greek pizza, which my friend had. The desserts are more expensive than at other restaurants, but that is because it takes a long time to make them. They are very high in calories, so maybe it is just better to take them home with you and eat them there in peace. And the barbequed tofu looked very good.

The Royal Alexandra Interprovincial Bridge, the official name of this more than 100 year old bridge, is a steel truss cantilever bridge spanning the Ottawa River.
Between 1898 and 1900 the bridge was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company.
From Nepean Point, Just East of Parliament Hill and the Rideau Canal it's a nice walk from Ottawa to Gatineau.
