Being consistent in creativity does not seem to go together but this restaurant seem to manage both qualities beautifully. I have dined here 3 times and each time there were dishes that surprised and impressed me. From its flagship duck ravioli to salad, curry, beef, chicken, seafood. Everything brought to the table seem to please your eyes, surprise your nose and tickle your taste buds the right way.
Last week-end I had a chicken curry soup, and shared a seafood dish with my friend. The curry soup was served with a hint of mint “pommade”, droplets of paprika oil and a few drops of cream. The whole yields a quite sophisticated and mystical product, good enough for me to ask for a second one.
The seafood dish was composed of tender octopus, big clams and striped bass served in a creamy sophisticated broth. Everything was fresh and tasty.
The bread served here is warm and crisp. The choice of wine is honest and affordable. The desert menu is short (usually 3) but very professionally executed. This time we tried the ginger crème brûlée which was quite tasty but I preferred the coconut crème brûlée that I had last summer.
The owner Nada provides excellent and prompt service.
I would say that quality-cost wise it is one of the best places I have been in Montreal.
