We thought this was a spot to take our family but it was a pretty weird place to eat for suppertime. It was more like a psychedelic disco bar. The music was too loud and strange for dinnertime. There was a strong smell of cigars from the cigar bar next door. The bathrooms were really dim with fish tanks you... More

We went here not knowing what to expect. The place was busy but the waiters were still attentive. Cool funky vibe, more for teens and adults. The service was awesome and the food was fantastic. The ribs were tasty and tender, nachos were flavourful and nice presentation and the seafood pasta was perfect. Pleasantly pleased with this place and would... More

We, a couple of Dutchies, visited Cosmo twice in October 2016 and haven't been able to forget their amazing breakfast. Their breakfast alone is reason enough to travel back to Canada someday. Do not doubt going here, as there is nothing better for persons who love a proper and fresh breakfast.

This restaurant will not disappoint you if you are going for breakfast or lunch. There is a large selection on the menu for all palates, the service is very good and they are friendly.

This Cosmos has a large menu with lots of Cdn/American standards. Service and presentation was good. Food was Decent but with slightly smallish protein servings. Generous portions of accompanying salad, fries, etc. A safe bet but not great bang-for-your-buck. Located right In the heart of Grand Allee.

Haha. We were cold from the carnival and stopped here to get warmed up, have a drink, and share something as a family. We hadn't had a poutine in quebec yet so we gave it a try. It was good and the atmosphere was great. The service on the drinks was a bit slow, but it was busy. Worth a... More

We found Cosmos by chance as we were looking for breakfast on Saturday morning. The food was fantastic as was the atmosphere. The portions are large and a good value . We enjoyed it so much we returned Sunday morning for breakfast. Between the two days our party of three tried the Cosmos Cassoulet, two different omelet, crepes and eggs... More

Went for lunch with coworkers. Had the Club Sandwich. It was good, but there wasn't a lot of fries with it. That was the only disappointing thing. The service was great. The ambiance was great. And the time it took for lunch was perfect. I will certainly go back!
