Always a good place to go. In COVID times, the tables were a little too close to eachother. Service is always fast and impeccable!

All in all it was a great experience for a Lunch break. However, it should have some shade that helps you to enjoy it more from the Heat since the Sunshades where not used...

Terrasse William Gray
Responded on July 6, 2020

Hi FpWt, Thank you for sharing your comment with us. We are happy to read that your overall experience on the terrace was great. The sunshades are there to be used and to make sure our guests are comfortable. I am sorry to read that they were not used on the sunny day you came. I will address the situation to our service team and make sure they use them appropriately. Do not hesitate to ask our team on your next visit if you would like to put them down. Best regards Véronique Laporte

Bonjour.

Je reviens tout juste de ma terrasse préférée dans le Vieux Montréal que j'ai retrouvée avec tant de plaisir. Malgré la pandémie, l'accueil est fort plaisant, la vue spectaculaire et la bouffe correcte sans être remarquable: crevettes tièdes mais bien relevées, pâtes assez insignifiantes mais service impeccable. Fort content que mes amis aient apprécié leur 1 ère visite.

Mais il y a un bémol assez fâcheux. J'ai demandé un Sauvignon blanc, sans succès, puis un Sancerre, même réponse. On me propose un blanc autrichien que je goûte et apprécie . Quelle ne fut pas ma surprise de découvrir, en recevant l'addition, le prix à 24$ le verre soit 48$ pour 2. J'aurais aimé le savoir. Je ne suis pas le genre à demander combien. C'est au personnel à le mentionner ou l'indiquer en le montrant sur la carte. J'aurais pu choisir en connaissance de cause.

Je retournerai car j'habite à coté et j'aime l'endroit mais, de grâce, ne présumez pas que le client connait et évitez ce genre de mauvaise surprise.

Bonne fin de journée.
Michel Lefebvre.

The view is unbeatable and the drinks are good so I don’t mind paying more for them. However the food is somehow worse every time I visit. This time I tried the steak, it was a TERRIBLE cut very piece was sooo fatty definitely not worth $42. I would love if they put even an ounce of effort into the food. They know they don’t have to because of the view and drinks which is sad. I will definitely return but will try to not to eat there if possible and just have drinks.

This terrace has a beautiful view of the River and is worth having a drink there if you can get a reservation. The food was not good enough to recommend. Burger overdone and the menu has odd items. We ordered the chicken with Beets and its presentation was awful. Service was slow. I think as a bar it is very popular and pretty.

Classy terrasse right in Old Montreal with a beautiful view. We went there for brunch and found it to be comparable to other breakfast places in Montreal. With the view, it was more than worth the value! It was a beautiful day and the terrasse we sat under the movable awning so that we didn't bake in the sun.
