The atmoshere transfers you to Paris. The food and service are excellent. There is an Oyster bar. This restaurant is attached to a hotel and offers parking. A wonderful table d'hote at lunchtime. We will go again.

Le Pois Penche is an attractive downtown Montreal brasserie in the French style. It's menu leans to seafood, but there's lots of choice and a good wine list. It can get very busy, but service seems to cope.

Yes there were table cloths when I went twice for dinner. Very much like a real Parisian brasserie. I'm planning to go back in two weeks as the last two dinners were very good.
