Based on various internet site reviews, I chose to take my wife to this restaurant. None of the reviews that I read mentioned how tiny this restaurant is. It feels like it is constructed between two other buildings because one side's wall is brick, while the other side is stone. The restaurant... read more

I had diner there and I really enjoyed my food. They have all kinds of dishes but always very good and well presented. They have a nice choice of wines (I found them a bit expensive) and we got really good advice from the waitress. I'll definitely go back if I have the opportunity.

This place was recommended by our concierge. We are glad we listened! This quaint little gem has a great ambiance, delicious food, and awesome staff (here's looking at you Mitch!). We were a party of 6 girls in town for the weekend, they were fully booked on Saturday night but they were gracious enough to reserve the bar for us.... More

Service was good for the most part, food was good, portions decent, good wine list, but basic uninspired desserts if that matters to you (which it does for me).

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
