Ottawa tapas

I found myself at 222 Lyon last week for Tapas and found that they do a very good plate of fried smelt. Good sized fish, lighly battered and fried just right produced crispy, tastey and not greasy bites. Other plates included white asparagus dressed with a light vinagrette made with what I would consider too-strong white onion. Instead, I would think shallots would provide a lighter flavour for better impact - rather than all imapact when one is confronted by the sulphorousness of your garden-variety white onion.

Also of note was the potato cake (standard tapas fare) - light and fluffy egg over tender sliced potato.

Has anyone else been to 222 Lyon, or any other tapas bar in Ottawa?
