Menu is simple, nothing to mention; however the backyard terrace is worth the visit. Sangria is a classic at the property

Found this sweet little patio restaraunt with live jazz by accident. Wandered in on Thanksgiving weekend in Montreal (Saturday evening) because we heard the jazz music from the street. It's nestled in between some buildings with many live plants and flowers arranged hanging on the...More

2 metro station to old Montreal. Place D'Armes & Champ de Mars which is closer to Place Jacques Cartier where the restaurant is. When you get off the metro walk towards the Hotel de Ville and in front us Place Jacques Cartier
