We went there for dinner and was very impressed by the selection of fresh fish. The fresh fish is charged by weight and was worth the money. The service we received was excellent. Would definitely return there on a future trip to Montreal.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
