A hidden treasure of Montreal... I wonder how and why there are empty tables in that outstanding restaurant which I highly recommend.

This litlle restaurant was a really good find for lunch in Griffintown. The table d'hote for $22 offers very good choices and is copious, delicious and well presented. The service was attentive and courteous. We were all pleased to have discovered this little gem.

The soup they are offering is divine. I wanted to order a second one. The rest of the food offered is very tasty and exceptionally presented. The service is quick and helpful. Good selection of wines.
