Spent a delightful afternoon at this restaurant, enjoying a beautiful sunny spring Saturday. Right at the Place Jacques Cartier, we had a few beers, watching the people walking by. We had some appetizers, the tuna ceviche and the nachos, which were both very good!

The food is excellent and the surroundings filled with plants, flowers and local birds. Thanks to the tarps that make up the roof, you can even dine when it is raining. They often have a live band. Best not to sit too close to the...More
