  • It's a big Mall, are 3 floors of stores and a food court very good, dinner 2 times there. Is a good choice for the night or rainy days.

  • I really like this mall- it is very well maintained and boasts a great variety of stores & the brands it carries include some of the best. It is very conveniently located in downtown Ottawa. 
  • If your looking to kill time this place is smack downtown attached to Shaw center. There are a few upscale stores and great Canadian store called Simon's.

  • Spacious mall with lots of options available for clothing and other fashion items. Walking through Rideau has been a past time of mine and it's always enjoyable to wander through with a friend. Only problem with Rideau Centre is when you go out onto Rideau Street. The centre could do more to keep the immediate area clean and free of people smoking right in the entrances.
  • Moved from Toronto to Ottawa. I entirely believe this mall is way better than the Eaton Centre! Beautiful mall, bathrooms are very modern and clean, and such an amazing variety of stores, you'll leave with no money left! Best variety in shops. I usually don't drive here so I've never experienced the pain of parking
  • This mall has done so much in the last few years to actually become really amazing. It's used to be pitiful. Now it has great stores, a neat layout, and it's easy to spend a couple hours in there. Great food court too
  • Very cool and a clean shopping! Great stores, from the most expensive to the less. Beautiful food court and restaurants.
  • Great mall, reminds me of Yorkdale Mall back home in Toronto. More directions within the mall to where the OC Transpo station is would be good. Or at least bearings to tell you which way is north
