One of the coolest restaurants we visited - great light fare, excellent drinks and live jazz every day in an indoor garden. What more could you ask for?

Stunning place! A must see for design and architecture. The Food and Drink menu was creative. Everything looked amazing. However, you can't change anything, so if you don't want something with onions. Your getting onions or order something else.

We truly enjoyed our lunch of the Apple/Bacon crepe, French Onion soup, and a salad. We sat in the front patio facing the Jacque-Cartier square, which was filled with watercolor artists and gorgeous flowers. Full of color! Service was excellent also. All was very good, but the price was a bit more than I would typically pay for lunch, $53US... More

Found this place on a combination of TripAdvisor revues and stumbling across it. There is a choice of three places to sit- the patio on Place Jacques Cartier, indoors and the courtyard. We sat in the courtyard (and beat the 6PM supperhour rush) where there was a live jazz trio playing. The atmosphere was very relaxing and casual. The french... More

Though service was slow and we didn't want to wait 20 minutes for the inner courtyard ( clearly the place to be), the food was good: grilled salmon, smoked salmon and calamari. The waitress was sweet and the porch area in front abutting the square pleasant. Best thing tho was the superb dessert: a sweet bread pudding with vanilla ice... More

Choose from indoor seating and patio seating in front or nestled within. There may be a wait for the latter, however, all offer amicable ambiance. We enjoyed pizzas for meat-lovers and veggie-lovers and shared a cup of leek soup for approximately $40. Will try the frozen mango and Rum concoction next time! Enjoy!
