Restaurant details
Neighborhood: Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Description: Cosy and simple neighbourhood restaurant. Reputation is made on cheezy hamburgers, old fashion red french fries and typical "Poutine Quebecoise". Exterior terrace in summer is a hidden secret. Fresh good Boreale local beer, sangria and apple cider are served.

We were staying at a hotel around the corner and found this restaurant using the Urbanspoon app - we weren't disappointed! The service was excellent, as were the burgers. I had the gouda cheese and bacon burger, and my boyfriend had the Texano, and they were some of the best burgers I've tasted. The fries were also excellent. I was surprised that there weren't more people eating here, but it's kind of a hidden gem!

My husband and I came here for lunch. The menu was in French, but the waitress spoke English and helped us order. She also helped me with my French! The burgers were delicious and reasonably priced, and the restaurant itself was cozy and very atmospheric. Definitely recommend!

Really, a total lack of imagination. If they had the best burger in town, maybe. But they don't. If they had something different, but they don't. It's basically pick a burger, one patty or two; one cheese or two; do you want fries with that? The burger itself was overcooked. The fries were very dark and yet not crispy at all. Nothing special on the burger menu, unless you want a chicken patty or a fish patty.

Please, Mr. Chef, how about a lamb burger? Maybe something with carmelized onions? Chipotle? How about cooked with mustard? Onion rings? Something to make this special. Something to make me want to come here. Something to make this place.... exceptional.

We had a couple of delicious burgers and poutine. There is a nice little courtyard with some outdoor seating. The waiter was extremely helpful even though we couldn't say more than a few words in french.
