I came on 2013 with my wife and we loved it, however; this time me and my friends didn't like it. The lamb needs more cooking. The rice and viges where decent. The atmosphere was the worst by far. The music is awful. I listen...More

This was my first and last visit to this place. It was chosen by someone else as a venue for a birthday celebration. This place seems to exist for group celebrations. Whatever you do, do not go here for a romantic dinner or small group....More

The Village (Gay Village)
The rainbow pillars of Beaudry Métro Station shepherd
the way into to The Village, one of the largest hubs
for gay and lesbian culture in North America. With an
open layout and a congenial aura, the refurbished
buildings along Rue Sainte-Catherine pay a special
homage to menswear and to caffeine, with showrooms and
cafes. By morning, the antiquing gems along Amherst
Street are packed with collectors. An incredible party
