Small place, very French, quite popular with locals. Good Beef bourguignon, just average linguine (the only vegetarian meal)/ The appetizers are a bit overpriced, though the soups (French Onion, especially) are excellent. Good choice of wines. Attentive service & very friendly atmosphere.

The seabass in anis broth is fabulous, as is the steak frites. Seriously, try the fish...you'll simply rave about it too. The steak frites is a good value, as (chef and co-owner) Jean Pierre told me he couldn't get the right kind of quality for...More

Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is
one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's
neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums,
clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the
funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to
stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and
vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca
for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers,
