Often go there for lunch as it is near the office. Good value, great service and excellent food. The specials are delicious and have never been disappointed with any meal that have had at this restaurant. Reasonable bistro food and though the ambiance is noisy it is fun!

I've been eating lunches in the Old Montreal/International area the past 3 months and we went to try this one last month. It is a pretty big place yet, it was packed. The lunch express offers a 3 course for 19$ but I was tempted to try the lobster ravioli on the a la carte menu. Two of us had an appetizer, two main dishes and with taxes and tips, it came up to 75$, hmmm...! One of the most expensive lunches we had in awhile, but I don't think their food was that impressive for the money.

One word......WOW!!!! Lobster Ravioli with truffle oil, braised beef cheek, duck confit with arugula salad!!!!! Who does not love butter, truffle oil wine and bread?!!! This place is a must when you are in Montreal! The atmosphere is lively, the service is spectacular, the food to die for!!! Come in alone and sit at the bar.... by the end of the night you will be surrounded by new friends!! The staff is attentive and will remember you the next time you are here. I cannot wait to try everything on the menu!! Definitely a favorite for a foodie!!!

In Montreal on business. Happened on Holder while waiting for some printing to be done. Great find! It's casual lively. A combination of locals and visitors. They had me when I saw La Crema Chardonnay by the glass. I enjoyed the Talapia very much. Very buttery with almonds, sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts, green beans and shaved carrots. No carbs! I made up for it with the bread and La Crema. Would definitely come again

Try the Lobster filled ravioli, calamari, french onion soup - well really anything here tastes fabulous. It was a beautiful meal but the service was super slow. I know sometimes the staff give you space to enjoy the meal but this was too dragged out. Otherwise, a great meal with nice ambience.
