Bottom line the food is fantastic. Great choice of appetizers. In addition to the regular menu you have specials of the day. You can bring your favorite wine with you. We brought a bottle of champagne and white wine. The deserts are great. There are...More

Owned by a young couple this 1843 building has a lot of charm and warmth. Great food and a very limited amount of seating you must book up to 30 days in advance to get to taste their magnificent food. I believe a maximum 40...More

A small menu and a board of "specials" makes choosing easy but I was already pre-warned the lamb was exceptional. Selections made by our group of six included appetizers of scallops, crab cakes, Caesar salad, soup and salad of the day. Main courses of rack...More

simply excellent, quality, service, ambiance, there are no comparables. reservations must be made several months in advance for larger tables - it's worth the wait. Bring your own wine is a nice feature. Can't wait till my next visit.

Located in Ile Bizard (west island of MTL) in a charming heritage home, this resto is family run - the wife is the hostess while the husband is the chef. There are only about 10 tables or so, thus reservations are a must. Reservations are...More

It is true that reservations are hard to come by, but they are certainly worth the wait. It is a very small restaurant that holds about 30 people. They only do one sitting so there is no one pushing you to order to flip the...More

The best French cuisine in the West Island. Must make reservations a few months in advance because it's not a big fancy restaurant. Operated by a husband and wife team and the good thing is you can bring your own wine. Highly recommend this restaurant...More

Why does it call itself a bistro? It does not even have a zinc!
