Fauna Food + Bar

the animals of a particular region or habitat

fauna is about the things we love: eating and drinking with friends and family in a fun space. Our menu is seasonally driven and we support local farmers and producers wherever possible. We love the neighborhood and the space and are so happy to be open in Centretown.

The food

We like to have fun in the kitchen. We serve both small and full sized plates so you can try more than one dish. We use local ingredients wherever possible. We’re inspired by where we live, places we’ve been and things we’d like to do.

The drinks

We enjoy drinking while we eat and will offer a wine and cocktail menu with local drafts. We'll stay open later in the evening Thursday-Saturday for drinks and late night bites...

The space

A lot of love went into designing the space. We spent 2 years designing, sourcing products, and renovating 425 Bank Street. We wanted to take the concept of using sustainable and local products into the design as well. We have worked with some amazing professionals, vendors, and producers including Linebox Studios who designed the space, Inter_ex our General Contractor, Interversion in Montreal who made all of the tables and banquette (in Drummondville, Quebec), the Modern Shop on Sussex who helped us with our lights and downstairs tables, a Modern Space on Wellington helped us with our amazingly comfortable chairs and bar stools, Gusto Metalworks, who built our beautiful Zinc bar and Le Collectif Design who did an amazing job with our icons and branding. There are a ton of talented people around us and we have loved working with them to make fauna what it is. We also have a private room that is available and can seat 20 people (if you’re interested, give us a shout at 613.563.2862 or info@faunaottawa.ca)
