Service and quality of food are top-notch. The bartender created a drink for me after knowing what sort of taste I like which none of them in the cocktail list could satisfy. Dinner was served quickly. The bread that came first tasted amazing with olive...More

Looks like you've just experienced the Epik Effect! That personal, chill vibe is what we're all about at Epik. Keep the food simple and honest and you've simply got an honest, no nonsense meal :)

Lured in by the live music coming from the patio, we found ourselves to be the oldest people dining there. But who cares when the food is so good. I ordered the seafood risotto and it was probably the best I have ever tasted.

This is one of the most popular restaurants in Old Montreal. The food is mostly Italian and everything we had was very good. The atmosphere is very upbeat. The service was very good but relaxed and friendly. Highly recommended.
