“Good food, Good service.”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

We had the day specials, which in Canada we found to be a bit more expensive than the average dish on the menu. Good price/quality. Pictures on the website do the restaurant justice.
Cuisine is europian, straight and good.

“Not a tourist trap”
Reviewed April 30, 2014 via mobile

This place was welcoming, genuine, and rustic but delicious French food with an international flavor. Had couscous, veal steak, beef steak and beef cheek Bourginon. All were delicious. The Mergez sausage in the cous cous tasted like it came from Europe. Friendly staff. Easily would go back!!!!

“A Montreal Treasure!”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

These people are great, I was able to get a last minute reservation for Saturday night the same day thanks to Giuseppe, the host. My wife and I were on a special diet that they were only too happy to accommodate, we had the Filet with a nice side of mushrooms and a simple garden salad.

The atmosphere is lively but it's not to loud as we could still have a normal conversation with three people. Our guest ordered one of the "chef specials" and was extremely satisfied. I was able to stay strong and just had a cappuccino, which by the way was absolutely perfect! In the states places like Starbucks have so ruined and corrupted what a real cappuccino is that I had almost forgotten. May seem like a simple thing but it was the perfect finish to a A+ dinner!

“Loved the Mussels”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

Nice restaurant in the old city of Montreal, service was excellent and they served some of the best mussels I have eaten. My dinner companions had a variety of other dishes and raved about the lamb and the fish. Dessert was delicious profiteroles. I would go back next time I am in Montreal.
