This is the best restaurant in Old Montreal! You haven't eaten until you have eaten here! Tasting courses are a bit expensive but worth every penny!!

Food was just 'okay', nothing to write home about. Service was slow - poor customer service. Ordered the Venison that came with home made stuffed pasta. The pasta was buried beneath the Venison and was soaking wet. Dessert tasted like something out of box. Expensive...More
