Decided to try a new restaurant and was not disappointed. The food was great, the service was equally as good and the atmosphere was just right. I has the beef tartar and the Duck Magret and my wife had the scallops with a Filet Mignon. For desert we shared the "Fondant aux Chocolate". One of the owners Fabia was there and made our evening a hit.
Will definitely be going back, a true gem!

We made a reservation for 8 on a Friday night and were seated promptly when we arrived. We started with the black truffle arancini and escargots and then shared the land menu and the duck menu. Everything was superb. One of the best meals I've ever eaten. The service was prompt and attentive but not intrusive. Excellent value as well. They have a lovely gas fireplace that was nice during the cold snap while we visited. It was a little bit loud but overall it was exceptional.

I took my boyfriend here on a trip to Montreal for his birthday and we were both very happy with the experience. We ordered from the group menu which got us each 4 courses. The food was exquisite. I would definitely recommend the beef carpaccio, the coq au vin, and to try dessert! Our mini chocolate cake and dulce veche ice cream dessert was incredible.

The service was very friendly and the timing was perfect even though it was full. The place had a really nice vibe: the music was loud enough to hear but not too loud, the tables were spaced so you didn't feel cramped, and you can leave your coat at the door. We had a table by the window which was nice, the street it is on is cute.

Definitely check it out, I'm very glad that I did. Reservations are probably necessary but they use OpenTable.

We were promptly seated with our reservation. We immediately loved the ambience, trendy but warm. Waitresses were nice. We ordered one sea discovery course and one land discovery course. Service was on the slower side but maybe thats the way to enjoy these course meals? i had to go to the counter to get the check. If I hadnt, we would have spent a total of 3 hours in there. Which is not a bad thing but I didnt have too much time to spare.

Truly a treat: salmon tartare, beef carppacio, shrimp ravioli in coconut sauce, fancy meatballs with hummus and greens. All perfectly seasoned and delightfully flavored. Wife ordered 6 escargole which was a neat experience.

Main courses were delicious too, though we were fairly full by then and wishing for a little less salt and butter in our veal and scallop dishes. But on their own they are really good dishes as well. Really tender veal chop.

Overall: we went for the course meal and loved what we got. Would I go back? Yes, after trying a few other places too, and saving up some money. Would I recommend this to a first timer friend? for sure.

Got this restaurant from Trip Advisor and it was wonderful! Clearly a neighborhood place, it was cozy and friendly. I tried the Sea Menu and each course was tasty and well prepared. While each course wasn't large, I was quite satisfied by the meal's end, with room for dessert! i will definitely return and recommend to friends.
