"L'affaire est Ketchup" is a slang term that translates to "it's in the bag." The restaurant is on St. Joseph Street with a bunch of other new and hip restaurants and shops, and it's worth the trek from the old city if you are staying...More

Exceptional food and choices. A very happening place. We had reservations and watched as a steady stream of people were turned away. They all looked disappointed - having glanced at our meals as they waited to inquire as to availability. They definitely missed out.

This is a very small restaurant, make sure you have a reservation. We went there on a Wednesday and it was full! The menu changes often, the waiter will explain everything on the menu. Portions are generous. The creativity and quality of the dishes is...More

It is one of these small, dark, informal and sort of romantic spots that offer good, traditional food. Something that I disliked was the ventilation; the smell and the flavours were great but keeping them on the clothes was not. Food was good, portions avoided...More
