We ordered the "Menu Dégustation" with 6 courses and the food and service was outstanding! Highly recommend this restaurant for true traditional French Michelin star experience. If they don't have one yet they certainly deserve one or two even. ENJOY!

I'll admit I splurged a bit on this visit. I went for the 9 course menu, but it honestly looked so good that I couldn't resist. The courses were all delicious, I was given a lovely window table, and the wait staff was very polite and attentive. I'd go back again and I'd highly suggest this restaurant for a night... More

Went for NYE dinner and we were very pleased with both the high quality of the food and excellent service. It was a prix-fixe evening with a 7-course dinner for the holiday, but the selection was more than sufficient and not limited. The escargot, pate', and carre' d'agneau (rack of lamb) were prepared PERFECTLY! The pacing of the meal was... More

My wife and I stayed at the hotel so we ate breakfast here three days and one dinner. All terrific, staff and food. It's packed for breakfast and dinner, worth it, but make reservations.

Went there because we had a gift certificate. Found the place despite heavy construction around, barricades and ramps. The restaurant has simple elegance and seating is not cheek and jowl. Elegant in simple words. Staff were well dressed, polite and friendly. The waiter had little knowledge of the meals offered.Still, he seemed to talk down to you. Items were well... More

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighbourhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic centre of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its centre, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theatre.
