Great atmosphere. We decided to sit inside (there’s also a terrasse option). We arrived 15min in advance. We were seated at the bar while we waited. We had to wait an extra 30min for our table since the group before us were taking longer than expected but manager came to us twice to apologize for the delay. I appreciated that. Food was really good. Had the charcuterie platter and the beef tartar (dish). The only thing I personally didn’t enjoy from the food was the meat spread on the charcuterie platter but that’s just because I don’t like that. Everything else was very good. Also had an amaretto sour (don’t usually drink) but it was really good and didn’t taste much of the alcohol (which is a +for me) but I felt it’s effects 😂 Prices are very reasonable. Not at all expensive for the good food I ate. Definitely will go back again.

Terrible service and laughable food. We waited over an hour for coffee, then even longer for appetizer and mains. Eggs Benedict was appalling - thin english muffin with scraps of chopped ham that seemed to be scraped off the grill with nasty crusty bits, mediocre poached eggs and cold, slimy hollandaise sauce. Served with 3 berries as "side of fruit". Cute spot, totally abysmal service and food. Food was cheap, and tasted like it. Don't waste your time! Wish we had never gone.

Nice food and good place. The waitress was really nice but we waited 1h only to have our entry so it was a little bit exhausting...

We had to wait a long time to get our food. I had asked for extra sauce and never got it. The food wasn’t warm enough when it arrived at our table...

It took way too long for someone to greet me ( almost 7-8 min )
the first person who came to take the order told us the wrong information, as to what menu was available to us. My friend had her glass of water change because it smelled like egges, then I found something in mine, and they changed my glass for a dirty one 2 times, and there was also a lot of confusion about the order. after half an hour, another one came to take the order. We told her we already gave it, and she said she didn't see it on the computer. The food was ok, meaning a bit cold and eggs over cooked ( Benedict should run with the sauce, witch was almost non existant). My Cappucino tasted like hot coco. I wa dissapointed overall because I brought a friend for her birthday, I mentioned it when I reserved, and they didn't do anything.

Basic food and terrible service ! Half an hour for a beer .. come on .. restaurant is pretty inside - but food is overpriced .. we got McDonald’s wedges with eggs Bénédicte on dry bread .. and salmon bagel with greens .. with 2 drinks costing us almost 70 bucks..

Staff is polite .. but value for money is terrible , don’t go there ! In Montreal there are lots of much better spots !

Very basic food. Disappointed by the salsa on the avocado toast being for cherry tomatoes sliced in half with some shallots... Fine for a reduced price brunch but would note pay full price for this.

We had heard of this place a lot, gone by it a number of times during our visit to the Old Port area. If you want a good relaxed breakfast/brunch in the old port area this should be on your list. The food was great, the egg benedict that I had was one of the best I had ( I love my egg benedicts, the eggs were poached to perfection, slightly over medium over a lightly toasted english muffin. Make sure you are going with some time in hand. The pastries are excellent. For a good breakfast joint, they can upgrade their coffee a bit. Overall it's a great place to visit. Ask for Amina, the manager. She would ensure that you are having a great experience.

Our initial greeting was lackluster being told rather harshly that we only had 2 hours to enjoy our meal. But the service that followed was outstanding. Though I don’t remember his name our server was a clear cut above the rest and the price for the table d’hôte menu was shockingly affordable (29$). We will definitely return

J'ai apprécié la nourriture, les serveurs et serveuse (service chaleureux/belle équipe) et l'ambiance

J'y suis retournée à 2 reprises (en soirée) dans la même semaine pour profiter du Happening Gourmang (goûté a tout qui était absolument délicieux inclut le verre d'eau hihihi)

Grâce au Happening gourmand, j'ai découvert un superbe restaurant

Upon being seated there was water on the bar at my apt y, handed a glass of water with a bug in it that the waitress noticed quickly. My wooden "plate" slid in circles as I tried to cut through my English muffin Benedict, had to ask for a steak knife to cut through it as it was very tough, and eventually had a napkin placed under the plate to stop it from sliding. Service was lovely, beautiful spot but just not the best experience

COVID 19 era,outdoors seating -noisy but fun . The weather was great so it was worth it. Food was OK,we had oysters and fois gras- great! Main courses where mediocre at best, salmon : flavourless. Mahi Mahi: nice , gnocchi: good texture very cheesy sauce.
Desserts : tried 3 and they were OK at best, not inspired.

Overall: not a bad spot for a nice meal, a bit pricy.

L’ambiance était calme donc propice pour un souper tranquille, mais le service était assez lent pourtant le restaurant était loin d’être plein. Les repas étaient bien fait overall, par contre nous avions commandé Des escargots qui m’ont été apportés avec une larve vivante dans le plat. Le serveur était très poli par exemple et s’en est excusé, mais c’est l’une des expériences les plus dégoûtante que j’ai eue, donc il y a de quoi se questionner sur la salubrité du restaurant (raison pour laquelle je n’y retournerais pas)

Food was tasty. The manager/hostess was our waitress she was efficient but not super attentive and it wasn’t very busy when we arrived. The restaurant is super nice. Would return for dinner and drinks!
