This is a nice, not too expensive restaurant with pretty good food and service. Definitely a nice place for a good meal without breaking the bank.

They have fantastic all you can eat Moules et Frites every Thursday evening for around $15, they have around 20 kinds of sauce for the Mussels. On weekends, they serve a great breakfast and very cheap!
