An Old Montreal oldtimer newly renewed. Welcomed and treated like family. All food was excellent. The garlic escargot were special. Not too garlicky. Lobster roll with fresh sweet lobster. A special treat! Whole lobster done perfectly. Wine list extensive and pricey. Will certainly be back...More

Amazing food with no shortcuts. The owner is personable and likes to interact with customers. He lives in the area and knows the city and food well. Service was fantastic, right to the end. I'd highly recommend this restaurant and will be coming back.

This was perhaps our best meal in four days in Montreal. The specialty is fish/seafood, although meat is also offered. My wife and I had different fish dishes, both of which were excellent, as was the service. Tables are far enough apart that the restaurant...More

We are dismayed to hear that you were not completely satisfied with your experience. To add some clarity on the matter, our lobster Thermidor is traditionally prepared by removing all the meat from the lobster (claws included), and then served in the body shell after...More
