“Great For Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Went mid-week to this modern, warm restaurant for a late breakfast. Great atmosphere and decor. It's a short walk from the Parliament building and worth every step. Don't be tempted to stop at the other bistros along the way; carry on to Cosmos. We ordered both the traditional and the smoked meat eggs beni. Both were very tasty with the eggs cooked perfectly in a wonderful hollandaise sauce. They come with delicious fried potatoes/hash browns, fresh fruit, coffee or tea and a side of toast. Staff was very attentive and friendly. All in all a great experience. As mentioned in other reviews, make sure you check out les toillettes. We will definitely come back to this spot next time in town.

“Publicly embarrassed, nevering going back.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

We started off by being sat next to a drafty door that was shut off for the winter( probably the worst table in the restaurant). I can't begin to explain how dry our calamari was, and very over salted. We came starving, so we ate the food (just for its warmth and nutritional value). Our service was fine until when we left, that's when we were stopped at the door by our server asking for a bigger tip. I have never been more embarrassed at a restaurant, and was completely throw off guard by this. I explained about the terrible food and the cold table. And she still wanted more money from me. I found this completely unprofessional. I will not be returning nor would I recommend Cosmos to anyone.

“A great place for weekend brunch...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

This place is BUSY! Probably because the food is sooooo good... A great place to eat before heading off to wherever the day takes you. Close to the business end of Qc City, easy access to and from the highway as well.

“Always hopping and bopping so great if you like a busy atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

The food is delicious and the service is usally wonderful. Best if you make reservations if you are going to be more than 4 as it is a very popular place!
