This is still one of the most expensive restaurants in Montreal if not the most expensive. While the food is good it does not justify the prices.

My husband and I took the train from Albany to Montreal for dinner. We were so pleased with this restaurant. It was walking distance from the hotel. The wait staff were friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining. The food was wonderful. I highly recommend it.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and

headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by

youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
