“Great atmosphere in old Montreal”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Love going here with the open atrium with some small birds and plenty of plants as background. The music is often playing when I have been there previously, great to listen to over lunch or dinner. In the fall the umbrellas and the heaters are really appreciated. If you like an open atmosphere, live music, and good food, this is the place to check out in old Montreal. Makes for a great visit at the old port.

“Never anything but excellent food & service”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

This restaurant in the heart of old montreal, has a menu to beat all, and it is constantly evolving. Real Quebec food, and always something new to try. Open in the high tourist season, open air dining, with heaters and umbrellas so always comfortable.

“Disappointing food.”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

For some reason this restaurant is a favorite of many office workers, particularly in the summer. The atmosphere is loud and jazzy to my taste, however the food is uninspired.

“Cheap tourist food”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Very average food, geared to tourists. It's really too bad, as the setting is excellent. Outdoor eating in a fully covered terrasse, with inverted "umbrellas" that funnel any rain away from diners. I suppose they have to do this to survive, as they rely on the summer crowds to survive. Worth a try for the experience, but not sure I would eat there again as a couple. A good choice for families, as prices are reasonable for Old Montreal.
