Popped in as was near our holiday apartment. Friendly bar staff and a great selection off draft cask ale. Reasonable prices for Quebec. More for younger people in the evening as the music is live and loud. ( we are seniors who like good beer)

Stopped by for beers and it was happy hour. White and red house beers were $4.75 each including tax. Didn't eat.... Enjoyed the view on the second floor. Close to Marriott hotel.

Heard a lot about this place, and I wasn't disappointed at all. Besides the great food and the friendly service, loved the choice of music ! ;-)
