Le vin était malheureusement vinaigré, mais la nouriture était adéquate, mais je m'attendais à mieux pour le prix des charcuteries et fromages (au moins des raisins ou des fraises fraîches auraient été appréciés pour complémenter les assiettes). Le service, l'ambiance et la vue était extraordinaire, alors chapeau! On aurait aimé pouvoir se promener sur la terasse pour voir la vue du centre-ville (on voyait seulement le port de notre table), mais a cause de la COVID on ne pouvait pas profiter de la vue du centre ville, ce qui enlève un peu l'intérêt de venir sur la terasse, mais la vie du port était quand même à couper le souffle!!

Merci à notre serveur qui était exceptionnel! :)

Went here with my friends visiting from another province. The view was breathtaking, the service was phenomenal and so was the food. We also came in when there was an Aperol Spritz promotion which was a nice bonus. Really an awesome experience and will definitely come back.

Food was fantastic as well as the view. Service was very slow as they were attending to their manager’s table. We were not a priority to the wait staff. I hope she had a good time.

Awesome experience with my two teenagers! We were assigned a table right on the river side and we really enjoyed the overall experience and view. Food was very good, service was fast enough but not pushy. A bit pricy, but creates good memories. We were lucky to enjoy the daytime and nighttime view since we were there from 5:30 to around 7:00. Loved it!

Made this reservation over a month ago for a special occasion. Given an ok small table, better ones were available. Ok, we let this slide. Ordered cocktails, waitress wanted to take our dinner order even before our cocktails arrived . We told her no, we’d like to enjoy our cocktails first. It took 25 minutes for them to arrive. Restaurant was not busy. Never once did she mention our anniversary, no special treatment, no congratulations. Definitely won’t be returning. Disappointing.

Lovely setting and views, fresh air with heaters as needed, and creative menu for drinks and food, with some really nice and unique ingredients smartly prepared and combined. The trout and Guinea fowl were excellent, as was the charcuterie spread.

Decent little view - not as good as it was talked up to be though. Drinks were expensive but on point. Staff seemed a little stuck up - Not much smiling or happiness noted from some staff members. Appetizers and desserts came out super fast and were terrific. Would be helpful to have not only the food but the drink menu come in English as well. Overall we had a great time, some improvements to be made.

We chose this restaurant based on their reviews by previous diners and it was a huge Disappointment. Our table was in the far right corner facing the adjacent buildings roof top ductwork, directly beside the servers desk! We couldn’t see anything because the restaurant situated two bar top tables in front of our regular height table, which makes zero sense if you’re supposed to have your patrons enjoy a view of old port. Instead our view was of the legs and behinds of the people sitting at the bar height tables in front of us. We were asked if we were coming to celebrate anything special, it was our 15th Wedding anniversary that day and I was so disappointed that this was the table they chose to sit us at!

Drinks and alcohol are fairly priced, the food is overpriced and cheap. I suggest to only go for a good drink and the view.

J’ai pris le suprême de volaille et il y avait un os dans la pièce de viande. Je n’ai jamais vu ça. Aussi, on nous a facturé 3$ de plus pour notre verre de vin (x2). Il a fallu demander correction de la facture.

Good: Vue was great. Service was pleasant and prompt. The waitress was very nice.

Bad: They didn't have 2 items on the menu that I wanted to order. Food was pretty mediocre. Only the shrimp appetizer was decent. The trout, beef tartar and fowl all tasted bland.

This was our first restaurant dining-out experience as a couple since the pandemic struck. We had indicated on the online registration form that we were going to be there for mine and my partner's anniversary. They didn't even bother setting aside a nice table for us (we were placed near the entrance at the crossroads of where servers would fetch drink orders, and customers coming in and out for the bathroom). Further... individuals who were roaming about unmasked in the eating area were not reminded by staff to follow the mask guidelines. Our server was so late even take cocktail orders, and so to compensate for their inattentiveness, we just ordered everything at once. They further did not check-in on us adequately, aside taking our orders and my partner flagging her down for the bill - which came 10 minutes after we asked for it, when there were few tables of people left - we saw her no more than twice. The fish was overcooked and under-seasoned, and the boeuf tartare was a solid experience. We tipped 20% because we want to be in solidarity with servers who are working under these new circumstances - but I hope management takes stock of this review. We felt like we were the least important guests in the terrasse (when we should feel like we were equitably attended to) on a night that should have been something special after such a hard year.
