This restaurant has great food with great flavour, and the dishes are always made fresh. It also has a nice ambience, but not a place to go for a quick meal as the service is slow (relaxed).

I ordered the appetizer plate with three choices for $12.99. Everything was tasty: borek, dolmas and cacik. Good service. Clean. Reasonable price and tasty food.

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
