This restaurant has been in the Gay Village for decades and is still fresh and there is nothing stale about the menu.

I am obsessed with their soup. It is really good and the broth is one of the tastiest I have had. Maybe it just suits my palette, but it probably the best I have ever had. I have had a few other items off the...More

The food at this place was fantastic. The service was average. The waitress took a long time to take our order. The restroom was below average. It was kind of dirty. Still a rating of 4 because of the great food which came very fast.

I love the fact that this restaurant divides the menu into pages of each main ingredient such as: beef, pork, chicken, seafood, vegetarian etc. If someone truly feels like seafood tonight then there are about 10 items to choose from... the same for beef or...More

Friendly and relaxed. Nice patio, service nice and chilled. I enjoyed our experience there very much. No rush, no pressure. Bring your own wine and beer. Food was delectable. Every single bite deeeeelish and the bill really reasonable. Great evening, highly recommend.

This BYOW (bring your own wine) establishment is situated in the middle of the gay village- While the service is nothing short of pathetic, the inexpensive dishes, large portions, and outstanding food was all amazing! You can tell that the ingredients they use are fresh...More

The Village (Gay Village)
The rainbow pillars of Beaudry Métro Station shepherd
the way into to The Village, one of the largest hubs
for gay and lesbian culture in North America. With an
open layout and a congenial aura, the refurbished
buildings along Rue Sainte-Catherine pay a special
homage to menswear and to caffeine, with showrooms and
cafes. By morning, the antiquing gems along Amherst
Street are packed with collectors. An incredible party
