Over time we have been to this restaurant several times, ever since the old name was there, with the old principle. Then it went non-vegetarian and lost its appeal, its vegetarian choices were highly reduced and the food was more blunt. I went back a...More

Food is okay, ambience too, but the prices are ridiculous for the birdseed they fed you. Find another vegetarian restaurant,or order salad in a steakhouse.

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

restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
