“A Night to Remember”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

This restaurant is a labor of love for the owners - he is the chef and she is the sommelier. The food was great, the private importation wine was superb and the experience (country chic) added to the enjoyment of the evening. There are a lot of tourist trap restaurants in St-Sauveur, but this is not one of them. It's pricey, but the food and service were exceptional.

“Sainte Adele MUST DO”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

My second visit but the others in the group are regulars. Small, personal, quality food at very reasonable prices with a good wine selection, again at very reasonable prices. Efficient management and the chef doing his visit to each table is appreciated and great PR. No complaints and the service was leisurely but effective. We hope the Bistro stays open during the winter as this is one place that has class and does not break the bank.

Definitely a keeper.

“A Dining Spot for Special Occasions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2013

Chantal & Tony opened a restaurant in their St. Sauveur location in 2012. It seems that their customers from their previous location followed them, since both the terrace and the dining room were full, even the few seats by the counter inside, were taken by habitués who just walked in. Thus a reservation is really necessary!

The team attends to tables constantly, ensuring wine glasses are filled, dishes removed promptly, and patrons are asked is everything is to their taste a few times through the meal, if you drop something, chances are you won’t be quick enough to pick it up. They are all attentive, and amiable. The terrace is humming with people; others walk in and join them. The atmosphere is of a friendly club. Dishes are travelling to and fro with good aromas and appealing arrangements food displays.

There is a table d’hôte including a choice of an opener, such as a Tuna Carpaccio, a salad, or mussels in pepper and Vodka, followed by a choice of main dishes, bison, duck, fish, veal, or pasta. An à la carte menu offers a variety of openers and main dishes, and specialty pasta dishes. The wine list is interesting, single glass is also available. Desert is not listed on the menu, however, there were at least six choices described by the waitress.

The décor, table setting, dishes and silver are of contemporary design. Cold water served right away, you are given time to study the menu, and receive a small surprise on tiny plate with a green herb, brown sauce and red-pepper cubes a small fish-ball nestled in a Chinese style spoon. Then a plate with herbed-toasted bread with tomato slices arrives. The mussels are served in delicate brine. The fish was grilled, and served on a green vegetable sauce, alongside a bed of special minute pasta topped with roasted vegetables, all very nicely presented on the plate.

For desert I chose the tiramisu cream dusted with chocolate on top, and coffee, which came with two coloured sugar sachets. This is a very fine cuisine restaurant!
