I was really disappointed by this experience. I was on my own and the bill was nearly C$100, a soup, a steak and a beer. I have had better pub meals for under C$40. The staff were great - no faulting them, but this place...More

I debated on scoring 3 or 4 stars. 4 Stars being "very good", I thought it was too high. But it is better than average. So 3.5 stars it is. This place doesn't change. It's still the "like it or hate it" decor, the "working...More

Stopped in for a bite after long day of travelling. Decor is interesting, looks like French bistro meets old strip club. Service was good, food was ok. A bit pricey for average quality. Nothing spectacular. Many better choices, not worth the $$$$.More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by

youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
