Had a good menu and the fixed price choices for lunch were quite generous, including beverage and dessert. Not a huge place and so you get a sense of intimacy. Seemed a good place for locals, and visitors.

Just a short walk from the crowded and pricey restaurants of the lower port streets of Petit Champlain . We asked a local for a restaurant tip and were not disappointed. Nice atmosphere, friendly waiter named Jacques and a great affordable lunch menu. The pizza was yummy. The lasagne and caesar salad were delicious. Quick service and a friendly staff.

We thought that would be fast. So cheap and fast, and we were really not expecting haute cuisine, but we had to wait for... More

Just what I needed after wandering around Lower Town. Menu had nice variety, lots of healthy choices also. Poor waiter was slammed, but did a nice job.

So pleased to find this lovely relaxed bistro. Seemed like quite a few locals eating there so that was very reassuring. Great lunch menu, excellent value and super service. Soup, salad, pizza - all delicious. Wish we had found this place soon as we would have returned more than once.
