Enjoyed a good early supper here before the rush. By 1930 hrs on a Sat, every table was full. Prompt service and juicy steak were a great end to the day.

Very good restaurant. We went there for lunch and to spend the afternoon on the terrace. The food, the service, the dessert were all good. It was a nice place to eat lunch and relax.

I went here for business and had a wonderful evening. The atmosphere is literally magical. What a perfect place for a date! :) What's great about this place is that the food is just as good as the atmosphere. I had one of the dinner crepes and it was as authentic as I've had in France. The wait here can... More

My office is not far from this Bistro. I've been here 4 times. Make sure that you call in advance and reserve a spot on the terrace if it's summer. Amazing service, amazing food. The owners are on the floor making sure that everything runs smoothly. The food and ambiance are second to none.

Wonderful meal in the outdoor garden area of this lovely restaurant. The warm summer evening we were there was delightfully busy and the staff was impressive in their response. Great food, fabulous setting and professional service. Perfect!

Wonderful place to chill out with family or friends. Nice atmosphere even if only for drinks. European portions (if you having a meal). Recomended.

We had a nice meal here. The service was very good, and the food was good. The atmosphere was very nice too, we were in the outdoor courtyard. However, during the meal a large spider crawled out from under the table. My daughter crushed it with her napkin. As we were leaving, I brushed another off my leg. Unfortunately, I... More

We experienced none of the problems cited by some other reviewers and enjoyed all the positives proclaimed by most. Our friends dine at the top all over the world and THEY were enchanted by the ambience, intrigued by the menu, pleased with all the courses, and delighted with the bill, which was the smallest we've had all week in Montreal....

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.
