An Old Montreal gem. Limited menu, but what we had was very good. Nice wine list by the glass or bottle. Efficient and friendly service. Highly recommended.

We stopped here as it was near our hotel! The atmosphere is soooo charming! The pasta and sea bass were excellent! I would recommend making a reservation as the place is quite small! I would visit here again!
