This is a hidden gem that my husband I found as we walking and window shopping in the Old Port of Montreal! We had dinner on a Saturday night, the last day of our vacation in Montreal. Its a very romantic setting with an awesome menu and wonderful selection of great wines to choose! Highly recommend the Cheeses from Noyan... More

My husband and i have come back into town for a conference and really looked forward to having our favourites of about 8 months ago . We were disappointed that they changed the preparation of their burrata and their bourguignon braised beef . Although we were let down by the change ... the new preparation was good and the foundation/quality... More

Great location in an old style building provides a great place for dining. The food is delicious and well-priced. Try the fried smelts with lemon.

We are indeed lucky to be housed in a bi-centennial building in the heart of Old Montreal...The original stone walls and wooden beams add a great deal of charm to the place. Being also very committed to providing delicious food to all our guests, we are most happy to hear you enjoyed your meal! Looking forward to seeing you again. More

We were lucky enough to get a reservation on short notice the day of. I booked it online and was interested in 6 pm but could only book 6:30. No problem, play was at 8.

We couldn't get into this restaurant first try. Make a reservation, it is worth a visit. This is a small restaurant with eclectic decor, exposed brick, old books and mismatched china. The space is small which explains why you need a reservation. The food was outstanding, we had seafood risotto and beef bourguignonne. Our waiter, Adrian was very helpful with... More

This is a quaint restaurant in downtown Montreal. The waitstaff are extremely friendly and service was outstanding. My husband had the veal and I had Lobster Carbonara! Both were outstanding dishes and had a very nice presentation! We didn't get dessert as we were too full. I highly recommend you make a reservation as they book up quickly!

This is a great restaurant in old Montreal with a menu that provides choices for everyone. The dishes were extremely well balanced and tasteful, the seafood risotto was amazing!! The tiramisu is a must and I thought the service was really good. Would highly recommend if you're in Old Montreal. I thought the prices were ok, wouldn't expect anything less... More

Friendly service, delicious modern French dishes and lovely wines. We wanted to try several wines so we bought by the glass. This was certainly not cost effective....quite pricey, still we did enjoy every drop! Delightful ambience and service.

If you are looking for a cute, romantic place with great food in Old Montreal, don't look any further. Awesome place in Old Montreal on Saint-Paul Ouest.
