Everything were ordered was delicious. Menu is in French but had translations. Would we go back, yes. We tried their beef tartare, goat cheese, onion soup, beef cheeks and flank steak. Needless to say we were all full and felt it was money well spent.

This restaurant is handy to Old Montreal and this is the fourth time I have had dinner here. Clearly, it is a popular restaurant so arriving early or making reservation is necessary on busy nights. The liver pate was excellent as a shared appetizer...I had...More

Walked to this local restaurant with some colleagues on a recommendation from a local and we were not disappointed. The onion soup was great and the Mahi special of the day was also very good. The chocolate mouse was excellent and large enough to share....More
