Busy hot spot in the coolest area of Montreal. Small area, tight quarters when full. Service is superior, as is the selection of fresh food, especially the seafood. Very enjoyable dining, helped by very helpful staff., well versed with the wines available.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
