Food was reasonably priced and quite delicious. Nice presentation also. Definitely recommended. I had the mac & cheese ( forget the mushroom on top, my son added that). Best Mac & cheese I ever had. Short wait.

Outstanding food - baked goods and sandwiches amidst the hip vibe of old Montreal. My wife and I have been 5 times and this is always a destination. If you want some authentic local experience - this is the place.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Are you open for Sunday brunch? If answer is no, can anyone give lunch/brunch suggestions for a location near the Cirque du Soleil in the Old Port? In 2016 the Cirque was at 145 de la Commune Est. Do not know their location for 2017.

Yes, olive y gourmando is open for brunch. There aren't many tables. I ate at a bar facing the windows. Be prepared to wait for a seat on Sunday's. The food is worth the wait!

I would assume you are referring to Montreal City Hall which is in the old city....this restaurant is about a 15 minute leisurely walk west on Rue St. Paul Ouest. Enjoy. Andres
We will be arriving next week via train to stay with you for the weekend for my daughters birthday. How far from the train station are you, approximately how much is a cab ride from the station to the hotel?

As you have read, it is not a hotel. It is a lovely restaurant in Old Montreal. So it is accessible from various hotels in Old Montreal or anywhere by taxi.
