Yes, the food here is very good. I did not get to try a lot but all items on the menu looked intriguing. The 2 of us had to wait for about 30 minutes at 2pm on a Saturday afternoon. They do not take reservations.

I had a very enjoyable breakfast by the open windows along bar seating. The pastry was great and the fresh squeezed orang juice was excellent. The prices aren't cheap but not unreasonable either. I hope to have the opportunity to return.

I would agree that about 15 minutes would get you there. The restaurant can be very crowded so be prepared to wait in line.

Yes, olive y gourmando is open for brunch. There aren't many tables. I ate at a bar facing the windows. Be prepared to wait for a seat on Sunday's. The food is worth the wait!

I would assume you are referring to Montreal City Hall which is in the old city....this restaurant is about a 15 minute leisurely walk west on Rue St. Paul Ouest. Enjoy. Andres
