We went for dinner recently and had a fixed menu. The dining room was quite large and nicely decorated, however, it was practically empty. This for a Thursday night? We sat next to the gas fireplace and the charming waitress told us that we could take our time as they were expecting another table of 5 for about 9.15 p.m. Friday and Saturday apparently they need to have an early sitting as well as a later one, a practice I abhor. The wine which was a 2008 came as a 2009 but she did not tell us. However, upon picking up on this, she went back to look for an wine as listed in the List. We took the fixed menu. It started with a complementary tiny arancini which was quite tasty. Then we had 6 escargots in their shells with garlic butter. I thought they could have used a little salt. This was followed by a very tasty cream of zucchini soup with a little mound of foam, both attractive and tasty. The next course was a tartare of beef. I found this to have a strange seasoning. It was however, tender, and had a real bite of chili. Next came the main course of the duck breast, the magret which was served on a bed of polenta(?) This was a little too rare for me, and consequently was a little chewy. Lastly the dessert was a small portion of caramel icecream and a small "molten" chocolate cake. Both very tasty and not too sweet. It was too bad that the restaurant was so empty as it is a very nice room and the food, quite acceptable. The waitress was very attentive but not "hovering". Parking in this area is usually hard to find, but it can be found within 2 blocks for a maximum evening charge of $8.00 in an unattended lot very nearby. (Corner of Roy and St. Denis. )

Needed a cool bar/ restaurant with good food at an affordable price in a happening part of Montreal and I found it!
Went with a group of 8 for my husbands birthday, which meant we had to have the set menu - which i wasn't that sure about ? However the amount and quality of food for just $39.00 was such good value.
Highly recommend it

First, this restaurant is on a fun street full of restaurants. We enjoyed their Tapas menu and were so happy we did. It's a great way to be able to try their food and not feel like you'll miss out on something! Great selection and you are full when done! The food was absolutely wonderful. A must try restaurant for anyone that appreciates great food!
