What looked like a beautiful spot in LePlace Jaques Cartier turned out to be awful from start until we’d had enough and walked out. $3.50 for a Kirkland(Costco) bottle of water and then using tarter sauce in place of ranch dressing. 17$ for Captain Highliner fish from a box. Garbage. Grouchy manager and 1.5 hour wait and we finally walked out. STAT AWAY!!! Do not eat here.

Slow slow service. Waiting 1/2 hour for our drinks and 1 hour for our food. Mussels were raw. Very disappointed

Absolute chaos. Lack of trained staff. Dirty an unorganized.
We went in and sat down on the patio with 8 people. An hour and a half later still no food and everyone around us finished eating. An hour in to it the buss girl brings us some bread. Our drinks are long gone.
Terrible. Overpriced! And just a place that does not belong in this city of great food and service.
In short. If you must go there to eat I am convinced that there is another way better choice.

Had some lovely food. Good escargots and onion soup. We all got a late start that day and this was right off the busy square in a charming old building but the real attraction was the outdoor seating which was covered, since it was July and warm and we could people watch to our hearts content as we ate. Service a bit slow but ok since we were not in a rush.

This restaurant is either the second or third one on your left as you walk up Place Jacques Cartier from Rue de la Commune, the main waterfront street in Old Montreal. Like other restaurants in the area, it is mainly a sidewalk café, though there is also indoor seating. It offers full-course meals, including a table d’hote menu, but you can also get lighter fare or just a glass of beer or wine. Prices are average for the area ($$-$$$); dress is casual.

My husband and I ate there twice, once for dinner and once for lunch. For dinner we had lamb shanks on the table d’hote menu, which included soup or salad and a dessert as well as the main course. The food was excellent, but we were glad that we were not in a hurry because the whole meal took almost two hours to arrive. The slow service may have been because the restaurant was unusually busy (a nearby Cirque de Soleil performance had just let out), because it was faster when we had lunch there a couple of days later. At that time we had salmon entrees, also very good; the salmon was not overcooked, as it often is in restaurants. We also had desserts, pecan pie for my husband and ice-cream cake for me, very good as well.

One warning: watch your step as you’re going to your table or leaving it. The floorboards are old and uneven, presenting a distinct trip hazard; one even almost caught one of the waitresses. At least in some parts of the restaurant, the boards convey a lot of vibration, too; the waitresses, by no means heavy or clumsy young women, shook the floor like elephants as they walked by. I just hoped that the floor would not collapse under them—or me.
