Rideau Centre, Ottawa

(3.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
The recently redeveloped Rideau Centre covers all of your shopping needs under one roof. Originally opened in 1983, the mall, which sees over 20 million visitors annually, stretches over three floors and contains around 170 stores. A revitalization project, which commenced in 2013, has seen the addition of a three-level underground parking garage and a large dining hall, which ranges from fine dining to more casual fare. Our Ottawa travel itinerary planner makes visiting Rideau Centre and other Ottawa attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • 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
