The courtyard is simply magical in the summer. Live music, twinkle lights, giant awnings, old brickwork... And delicious food. Had a salad that was fresh and perfect, and a tasty crepe. A great place to spend an evening... (I also ate here off season on the front porch- the ambiance was lacking, but the food was still very good, and... More

I go there at least once during the summer. The outside section is a gem to take a lite lunch and have a drink. Check for when the band plays. You can not have more central then that. After you can visit all the beautiful little shops or go walk near the St-Laurent River. You next to the IMAX cinema... More

Fantastic restaurant in Old Montréal. The food is good quality, service is great, and you simply cannot beat the ambience. In warmer weather months you have three options for seating: Patio seating on the square, private courtyard seating around back (at times with live music), and indoor seating. Wait times vary for each, but in warm weather, it is definitely... More

Typical tourist trap. Horrendous food. Nice place. Service is ok, not terribly friendly. They really got to do something with their food.
