We were anxious to revisit Niko's on our latest visit to Calgary.
We had had a wonderful meal there several years ago and enjoyed it
very much. This time we were disappointed. The menu hasn't changed
in the intervening years and the food was mediocre at best. The drinks
(martinis) were horrible. The waitress made them and obviously had no
clue what she was doing. The chicken with mushroom sauce was swimming in
a greyish brown gravy and it had no flavor. The plating was uninspired and
no appetizing. We hated all this as we really like Niko and want him to succeed, but
we won't be back.

Seriously - you have not eaten Calamari until you eat it here. Mind blowing deliciousness - go...go now!

We had the cannelloni, pene with pancetta and mushrooms -both pasta meals were tasty but the portion could have been slightly larger. However it did give us the opportunity to have the apple strudel which was absolute perfection -highly recommend this dessert. Prices were quite good. Wish they would have had a beer on tap - maybe Peroni.

It was a hidden secret to me as we don’t go to Kensington very often. Will be going again.

Nice atmosphere, good food and service. Minor criticism is that Caesar Salad not as favourable it could have been and no bread.
