RCMP Training Academy: RCMP Banquet
The final event of our stay in Regina was the Formal Dinner and Ball, held to celebrate the graduation of another fine Troop of Mounties. The meal began at about 7 PM, with the various Mounties seated at tables with their family members in attendance. An excellent meal was served up by members of the next Troop of Mounties undergoing their training, but doing waiter duties for the moment! The graduating recruits then had to get back to work for one final dress-uniform march past at about 9:30 PM before photo opportunities rounded out the event. The next day, JP and our daughter accompanied us on the flights back to eastern Canada - he had been posted to St. Peter's, on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia (very happy with that!). As things turned out, he was also selected to be the Mountie representing Nova Scotia (one from each Province) at the 60th Anniversary of D-Day ceremonies in France (June, 2004)! Quite an honour!

Alfredo's Fresh Pasta & Bistro: A nice Italian/Greek mix!
This restaurant is located on a really nice section of Scarth Street, next to the Globe Theatre. It's not very big, but the food is very good and the portions are VERY generous (think twice before ordering the table d'hote!). I had dinner there and it ended up being the best meal I've had in Regina!
Favorite Dish: I ordered the Athenian chicken - delicious!
The Copper Kettle: A "classic" in Regina
The Copper Kettle is located downtown in front of Victoria Park and has been around for over 40 years. It is a really nice restaurant, with a sidewalk terrace, and a good menu selection. You can also stop by just to have a drink!
Favorite Dish: Their spinach and feta pizza is nothing short of legendary!
Golf's Steak House: Good, chic and not too expensive!
I'm not a big meat eater but I really enjoyed my meal at Golf's Steak House. The restaurant itself is very nice, the waiters are very friendly, food was good and I was surprised at how affordable everything was. They've also got a nice selection of Canadian wines!
Favorite Dish: I tried the filet mignon (mostly because I love showing off my French!) and it was very, very good
Bushwakker's: Bushwakker's is the place to...
Bushwakker's is the place to be!! Their home brewed beers are amazing! Just don't try the Strawberry Wheat Ale. I'm all for new flavours of beer, but I'll happily settle for strawberries on my shortcake instead!
Favorite Dish: Their Saskatchewan Plate has an assortment of tremendous goodies including perogies and drop dead cabbage rolls!!!
Cathedral Village Freehouse: Ahhhh the beer...
Cathedral Village Freehouse is in a way the upscale version of Bushwakker's. You can get quite an assortment of Bushwakker beer there (not all, but still quite a few) and the menu offers more variety overall. The ambience is nice, however, the restaurant can get terribly noisy. I was fortunate to be able to sit on the patio outside when I was there.
Favorite Dish: I had an amazing seafood salad. The greens and the vinagrette were excellent!
CK Pizza: CK Pizza lies right on Scarth...
CK Pizza lies right on Scarth Street. If you're in the mood for a great pizza, it's the place to go. Beware though -- the restaurant itself is quite grubby looking indeed.
Favorite Dish: I tried their specialty -- the greek Pizza. It was OK, but I always prefer Greek food in Greek food, if you know what I mean. Still the pizza was good and the sauce, excellent.
Abstractions is a great...
Abstractions is a great internet cafe. Internet access is more than reasonably priced. It serves tremendous desserts too!!!!!!
It's a funky house -- not in the 'restaurant' part of town at all. But remember when you're in downtown Regina, everything is easily within walking distance.

Casa Italia: Is it really worth the price???
Casa Italia. This restaurant is very pricy and I can't say that the food is really all that much better than Alfredo's. But it is a lovely atmosphere and the service was good.
Alfredo's: Excellent pastas...
Alfredo's. Excellent pastas and other lighter lunches. Great service and an interesting atmosphere.
