Went before a show with my Mom for her 75th birthday. The restaurant is housed in an old apartment, typical of Montreal and the Quartier Latin. Lots of separate areas on several floors. Our waitress was great, she gave us good advice with that unique warmth and friendliness you will only find in Quebec. 2 Tapas per person was more than enough for us. We had Fried Calamari, Roasted Scallops, Crispy Duck, Grilled Beef (Onglet), Fried Sweet Potatoes and Vegetables. Everything was very good, the Calamari and Beef especially remarkable. My mom is quite a foodie and she thought the Calamari were the best she's ever had. Onglet is rare to find on a restaurant menu. I love Onglet and I like to get it from my butcher once in a while and throw it on the BBQ. It's nice to get it all cooked for me, and it was perfectly done, with a spicy sauce which I couldn't figure out but tasted great. They have a good wine list and they serve about half a dozen of wines by the glass (both white and red).
At the end of the meal our waitress came with a dessert topped by a sparkle for my Mom, which was very nice since didn't ask for it, they juste heard it was buy Mom's birthday and offered this delicate attention.
They asked us before ordering if we were going to see a show (they are just across the street from Théâtre Saint-Denis) and they made sure to respect our time constraint, without making us feel like we were rushed in any way.
Pros: Great food, best Fried Calamari in that part of town, Onglet on the menu, wine by the glass, good choice for a pre-show dinner
Cons: Free parking non-existent, paid parking is scarce (my suggestion: Public Transportation metro Berri-UQAM, or park in one of the public underground parkings, access on Sanguinet street)
