We went on a Saturday night. We originally had reservations for 7 but went in there around 630 and they could seat us. The duck confit was delicious! Highly recommend it! The staff was very attentive and the food came out relatively quickly. Moderately priced...More

I'm always smiling when I eat here. Great service and great food! Emmanuelle's service was outstanding. French Onion soup a must have. Diverse menu. Right on the edge of Old Montreal.
