This restaurant is a hidden gem on argyle. The decoration takes me back to a dinning experience in a bistro in Paris. The food is amazing and the service is impeccable.

Things are quite torn up on Argyle Street at the moment with the construction of the new Convention Centre, so it is a bit of a challenge to get to Bistro le Coq due to no fault of theirs. It is well worth the tirp.

It is a true French restaurant, with all the traditional dishes. We liked everything we ordered: from the steak tartare to the duck breast, simply delicious! I will go back when I am in Halifax.
