My girlfriend and I visited The Monastery last weekend and it was incredible. We didn't know what to expect when we walked in through the narrow doorway and unassuming brick front.. Once inside we felt like we just traveled to some remote destination in Europe. Speaking with the server he informed us that they have been at the same location on Granby Street for almost 30 years. The home made bread and cheese was the best we ever had. This is our new favorite resaurant!!

Decent food and portions for the price. Wine selection poor. Menu quasi-Germanic but with a European mixture.

The moment you step in this place you feel you are back in 1979!
Ambiance, food, service, everything is sooo old (and not very clean), it is almost unbelievable in 2009!
Food was mediocre at best and wine selection ridiculous.
Good luck.
