It is really in the heart of Montreal on one of the famous street. The atmosphere in the restaurant was nice, but the food could be better. Big choice of beer, wine and champagne. On the second floor there is a cigar lounge.

This is a hard place to assess – I liked some things a lot and disliked just as much other things… The good: the classic flashy decadent-style restaurant and bar setting. The wine by the glass (Chablis) was quite good, as was our chevre chaud...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
