I've only been once, so this is my rating for the one occasion.
It is a hidden spot, found on the second floor...view the map to ensure you don't spend time walking around looking for the bar staircase leading up to the entrance.

Loved the terrace. It was a beautiful sunny day and I got to enjoy the rays to the max. But, if you're more of a shade person, then they've got table umbrellas for those who ask.

I was in the mood for a cool cocktail, and they offered Sangria in Red, White, and Rosé...I immediately asked the waiter for his input on the latter option and he raved about it being the best in town. So of course I had to try it--plus, I'm a big Rosé fan. It did not disappoint! Delicious, delicious, delicious...a must try.

Now, I didn't only go there to drink. So I eyed the menu for seafood options and opted for the muscles. My dinner guest chose the Moussaka. Two happy customers. I absolutely loved the muscle dish, I was so full I didn't even eat all the fries that came with it. Obviously I didn't eat dessert so I can't really comment on their options.

My guest thought that the service was mediocre...like we were forgotten, but I thought it gave us a chance to enjoy our Sangria before early dinner arrived. So, be forewarned that the service may not necessarily satisfy everyone.

Well, there you have it...a great spot for Sangria and maybe a bite to eat too. Enjoy!

We went to this restaurant twice, once for lunch and once for diner. We were a group of 10 persons for both times.
The restaurant is located on the second floor of Juliette & Chocolat. The ground level entrance is kind of hard to find. Go to the right side of Juliette & Chocolat and look for a small single glass door, then up the stairs.
There is an elevator from the underground parking, going directly up.
The restaurant is nicely decorated.

Now for the food:
For the lunch, I chose the seafood pasta and my husband had the lamb.
When the pasta came out, the first thing that hits me was the strong fishy odor... I almost gag...
The dish was generous but I avoided the seafood and only ate the pasta since I was not sure if the smell was an indicator of the freshness of the seafood.
My husband lamb's was tender. The only complaint was the size of it: 3 small tiny pieces for $23.
Since we had both chosen the "Table d'hote", tea and coffe was included.
When I asked the waitress if they have camomille tea, she said yes. So we order the camomille tea instea of standard tea.
When the bill came, there was a charge of $7 for the 2 camomille teas
What??? I don't mind to pay extra for the camomille teas, but it will be a lot nicer if the waitress infored us of the extra charge beforehand.
When we asked the waitress about the extra charge, instead of apologizing for not informing us, she just shrugged and said " Oh yeah, there is an extra charge for anything other than standard tea or coffee".

Since it is a new restaurant, we gave them the benefit of the doubt and decided to come back another time with 4 other couples for diner.
Out of the 10 persons, 5 of us chose the fish on the Table d'hote.
Again, when the fish came out, all the people who had ordered the fish noticed a strong fish odor again. Now, if a fish is fresh, it will not smell... My friend's husband returned his plate of fish and did not eat anything else beside his soup and dessert.
I barely ate one bite of th fish and stopped since it was not fresh at all.
I did not want to make a scene so I did not make a fuss and kept quiet.

In summary, we will definitely NOT be going back. I am really not a difficult eater at all (please see my other reviews) but 2 times in a row, being served seafood that smells bad... it is more than enough for me.

Great dinner for my wife and I. The service was excellent with very good menu and wine list knowledge. The waitress, a middle aged woman on the terrace really knew how to make our visit as relaxed and enjoyable as possible. The food was very good. We had a table on the terrace overlooking the fountain. Will I return? Absolutely and even bring the kids next time.

Was so happy to hear we finally had a much needed Greek resto in south shore.... What a dissapoontment!! Back to driving into montreal for Greek !! Many friends told me it was not good but i had to find out for myself.
We waited a long time for the meal to come. Thankfully the bread and olive dip was good!! Lanb chops were alright but nothing spectacular. Kids meal o chicken filet was very dry. Swordfish was average. The biggest dissapointment was the "greek french fries". We all know greek french fries are homemade fries...what we got was frozen fries and my plate was all the little end pieces that were overfried. They sprinkle a little oregano and literally a few crumbles of fake greek feta and they call them greek fries. And a side dish of this is $7 or something if i remember correctly!! Loukoumades had no flavour. Didnt even finish them. Very overpriced. Only nice thing is the decor. Other than that will never go back!!
