This lovely restaurant in Saint Roch offers some of the best food in town! The place is very small and always busy, make sure to book a table (or a spot at the bar) in advance. It is very cozy and the atmosphere definitely adds...More

"L'affaire est Ketchup" is a slang term that translates to "it's in the bag." The restaurant is on St. Joseph Street with a bunch of other new and hip restaurants and shops, and it's worth the trek from the old city if you are staying...More
