This is a BYOB restaurant. It is on the interesting pedestrian "street", and has a nice cozy feel. Our server was very good, friendly, and perfectly bilingual (as are the menus). The fare is very French bistro style with a real home-cooking flare (from central/south...More

I love coming to this restaurent whenever I'm in Montreal. The salmon tartare is my absolute favorite & their fries are crisp to perfection! If you're not a huge fan of seafood you can always try their 'bavette' which is absolutely mouth watering! The best...More

We ordered traditional French food....onion soup, escargots, steak, and were not disappointed with anything. Servings were generous, with the filet mignon the largest and most tender I've ever had anywhere. There is construction going on outside to repave the street, but it's well worth the...More
