“Delicious, local, organic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

I went here with 3 of my colleagues. One coming from Europe. I wanted a restaurant that show cased local foods at a decent price. What we found was a truly unique, delicious, and quaint experience.


The menu is written on a chalkboard because that's how often the menu can change depending what they receive as ingredients. Nice presentation on all dishes, great wine selection, and again, delicious food. I will come back.

“All Natural products”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

The outstanding feature of this bistro is the quality of the products used by the cook. Taste the free range raised cornish hen and you will appreciate the difference between naturally grown foodstuff and industrial food. The cuisine is very creative and taste wonderful. The place is small but cozy and located in a very pleasant part of town, two blocks from a metro station.

“loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

This place is a winner, The food was of excellent quality and with a creative approach. I loved the poached egg on mushroom and vegetable bed appetizer, so much so that I woke up in the morning thinking about it. The lobster tail delicious and the rabbit leg with clams tender and fresh. Unexpected menu with masterful execution. The only thing we didn't like was the menu was written (in French only) on the blackboard walls. It was hard to read from some angles but the staff was very friendly and translated everything for us. Next time I'm in town I will go again for sure and recommend anyone willing to try something new to give this place a chance.

“Best experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

I've had the best evening at this place. Not only was the food great and the service impeccable, the atmosphere was so cozy and charming. We had a great time there because we ended up sitting with the chef and his wife talking about mutual friends (well this is a little more personal). But here's what you need to know about this place: it is located in a great area (avenue Mont-Royal, one of the best places to be in Montreal), and this restaurant changes its menu every few days because the chef freshly picks up some vegetables (and probably other things, I am not a great cook myself) personally. This means that all of the ingredients are so fresh, and you have a dish depending on the season. Now that's something we need to give them credit for because not a lot of places I know of do that. And of course, it isn't overpriced and I the food is just delicious! The waitress even suggested wine for us, and we were all very satisfied. If I had to sum-up my experience in one work it would simply be: WOW! A must-try if you're in town.
