Nice place for a tapas style diner. And a remarkable experience with a large group of Oriental visitors. There was a large group (some 40) of Chinese or Japanese looking people who were not eating in the restaurant, but entered in smaller groups to occupy the restrooms for quite some time. Different culture I guess.....

Wow. Just had the chateaubriand special (which is 16oz) and it is as tasty and bountiful as ever!! I don't drink alcohol very often any more but here, a glass of the Spanish Rioja is the perfect paring. Way too full for the molten chocolate cake...unfortunately.
Monday nights are Mexican special...all Mexican dishes are $12.00.

our meal was excellent. The Chateaubriand was very tender and cooked to our liking.
We really appreciated that we received a phone call in advance letting us know that the restaurant was extremely busy with a group of 80 people. We came 45 minutes earlier and had not problem.

Always visit this one for the specials night and never disappoints! Amazing chateaubriand... 69 CAD for 2 people.
Had a relatively new waiter who was very pleasant, cheerful and attentive.
Plates could have been hotter as the food got cold rather quickly after being carved and served but the taste is unique.
Banana flambé was a real treat, highly recommended.
