Sea bass was very good but only came with chickpeas. The tomato salad was amazing. The mussels in a lobster bisque were very tasty. Four marks instead of five due to some small pieces of shell in the mussel dish and disappointing beignets.More

The ambiance was great. The food tasted amazing. Very skimpy portion. The staff needs some lessons on connecting to their customers and a quick lesson on how to use their mouth to smile once in a while!More

An Old Montreal gem. Limited menu, but what we had was very good. Nice wine list by the glass or bottle. Efficient and friendly service. Highly recommended.
