This was a perfectly acceptable small restaurant that served food of a good quality. The menu wasn't extensive but what there was provided just about enough of a choice to satisfy most people id have thought. Service was professional and there was a fair turnover of people which usually suggests a reasonable place to eat.

This Bistro is in a long narrow setting, crowded & rather noisy at lunch hour, but settles down to quiet shortly thereafter. Special of the day is always good & ample. They have a good quality wine, reasonably priced that is changed periodically. Service is excellent, even during the busiest period. We had the special - an outstanding vegetable soup,... More

Unassuming from the street, I'm surprised by how comprehensive the menu is. The salmon I had was very nicely done. And every dish comes with soup and salad. Much better than the lunches I am accustomed to. Bravo and encore!

During the Scotties Tournament of Hearts Women's Curling Championships, held in February of this year, my wife and I went down to Montreal to watch some of the games live, and to enjoy Montreal as much as the frigid weather in early February would permit. As always, we try to discover new places to savour the city's foods. On this... More

Bushed after a 6 mile hike around Old Montreal, the Latin Quarter and Chinatown, we were on our last legs but still hadnt found the compelling pit-stop for lunch. Then, seeing a crowded open-air bistro evidently frequented by locals, we sannexed a newly vacated table and refreshed ourselves with food and wine. It fitted the bill perfectly. Onwards and upwards.....

A small informal restaurant unobtrusively located on Phillips Square. Well worth the visit. We had the special,Osso bucco (pork),, and third person had salmon----prepared superbly and an indication of the popularity was that we got the last two entrees left. Service was excellent and personal---one of the owners waited on us. Prices were very reasonable and quality was what one... More

My friend and I came across this place this evening and decided to give it a go and I'm so glad we did! This is a classic French bistro; great food, great value for money and great service. Both the gentleman and the lady serving us were welcoming and helpful when we asked questions about items on the menu. My... More

Ate here our first night in Montreal and it was right near our hotel. We ate outside. I had a meal that came with sausage, fries, a salad, and soup to start. The meal was delicious. The server was able to explain what the menu items were that I did not understand since it was in French. Decent prices as... More
