I have been reading excellent critics from this "bistro de quartier" and willing to try it with friends and my husband. We did a different dishes selection: I had "foie gras" and confit de canard. Both were good but not exceptional or very good. The "foie gras" was too dense and probably not freshly done. The "escargots a l'ail" that... More

We were looking for a place for a classic French dining experience on our last night in Montreal and found this restaurant on tripadvisor, and it was the perfect choice. This is a comfortable bistro with personal service by the owners. We had the Cod and Duck Confit, both were excellent. The duck was the best I have ever had.... More

The other positive reviews are spot on. This place is great. I found the husband and wife team to be charming and wonderfully engaging. The food was classic French and very well done. The beef tartare was the best I've ever had. The dick was as good as claimed: perfectly crispy. The desserts were good, but I would either pass... More

I am so glad my wife found this place. It is owned and completely run by a husband and wife, with no other staff! They do an amazing job, the service was impeccable, and the meal even better! I seriously recommend this place for a 5 star dinner with very affordable pricing!

Delightful little Bistro in a quieter part of Montreal. Not at all a tourist trap, the owners are a husband/wife couple who have created a sweetly pleasant evening environment perfect for a quiet conversation and enjoyable dining. They were particularly responsive to my family's needs, providing a high chair and a changing table in the restroom. The food was delicious,... More

The meal was spectacular, the food was delicious and the husband and wife team who own this delightful bistro could not have been more charming. We never would have found this gem if it had not been for Trip Advisor and I am most grateful for all of the positive reviews as we found them to be 100% truthful. Lovely... More

Staying in Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)

Neighborhood Profile
Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialized Montreal, the factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have been renovated into homes, museums, and small businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge galleries and an ever-expanding network of restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the Atwater Market, where outdoor stalls sell fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat, street vendors have menus of hot fish and wine, and the indoor market offers chocolate, breads, and coffee beans. Dominated by the gentle waters of the Lachine Canal, Le Sud-Ouest is still very much an outdoor town, with a number of pedestrian-only bridges traversing the waters, bike paths along the canal with views of the Leisure Boats, and massive green spaces like Angrignon Park to stop for a picnic, or to play a sport.
