    Nice restaurant tucked into a small space on the ground floor of a boutique hotel. We shared the calamari, coconut shrimp, and seafood spaghetti. All three were cooked just right. There are some reasonable wines by the glass as well as by the bottle. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

    Restaurant was around the corner from our hotel and one of the few places that still had available reservations, so we did not have particularly high expectations. But we had great appetizers and wonderful mussels for an entree. Service was very good and waiter so personable.

    Adresse à ne pas manquer dans le Vieux Port. Super moment passé en semaine, avons beaucoup apprécié le concept de la carte (change tout les jours et plats de partage). Les plats étaient savoureux, l’ambiance très sympathique. Équipe souriante, dynamique et soudée. Le temps nous a permis de profiter de la terrasse joliment décorée.

    We arrived and were seated right away. The appetizer burratta was fine but nothing spectacular. For our entrees we had shrimp scampi and mussels. Once again it was fine but nothing special. The mussels themselves were sweet but the broth was flavorless. We ordered a side dish of roasted carrots with labneh which were tasty. They were short staffed which I understand in this current labor market however they were running out of menu items by 8:30 pm.

    Très belle terrasse, calme. En entrée, calmars frits délicieux et quantitée généreuse. J’ai mangé la guédille au homard. Super bon. Mon conjoint a mangé le burger et a trouvé la boulette très salée (épices). Un bon 8.5/10 pour l’expérience.

    For what we paid, this really wasn't worth it. We were eating out to celebrate a friend's birthday and we informed the staff beforehand. They did not do anything to assist us in celebrating or making it a special occasion whatsoever. It all just felt overpriced, impersonal, and lacking.

    Fantastic little spot in Old Montreal. The food was very good. The risotto was especially excellent. The drinks were very good - the server's recommendations were spot on. And the service was superb. Overall, I think the price/quality relationship on this restaurant is spot on. Well worth the money!

    Accueil, service, nourriture excellents! Très petit bémol: servir un tartare de saumon avec des nachos...il manquait des toasts ou, à tout le moins, des tranches de baguette. Nous aurions apprécié une musique plus cool et relax, un volume plus bas. Côté boissons, avons beaucoup apprécié qu'on nous prépare un cocktail sans alcool, à notre demande. Rapport qualité-prix très bien! Je recommande ce restaurant.

    On a passé une très bonne soirée, les employers sont aux petits soins et attentionnés. L’ambiance est très paisible avec une bonne musique d’ambiance et une terrasse vraiment bien isolées du bruit de la ville. On se croirait ailleurs et en plus très mignon. La nourriture est vraiment excellente. Je recommande fortement.

    Quelle formidable découverte! Nous avons été traités comme des rois. Nous nous sommes régalés avec le plateau de fruits de mers. Tout le personnel était aux petits soins avec nous. La visite du chef à notre table pour s’assurer de notre satisfaction nous a complètement conquis. Et que dire du gérant qui s’est assuré que notre soirée soit des plus mémorable… toutes vos petites attentions et votre accueil des plus chaleureux nous a charmé. Nous reviendrons assurément vous rendre visite dans un avenir rapproché. Merci d’avoir rendu notre soirée d’amoureux aussi exceptionnelle, nous vous en sommes infiniment reconnaissant.

    Great food! Awesome service with friendly staff. We accidentally dropped a fork at one point - the host heard from around the corner and brought a replacement within 30 seconds. Staff water pouring trick was also a hit for the whole family. Delicious!
