Everything was spectacular - you all made it so easy for us. My only complaint is the noise level and volume of the music. It was hard to hear!

Ayla is a hidden gem tucked away in Griffintown. Their Mediterranean food is fresh, flavorful n high quality. We ordered their Mezze Platter, for Apps. Very good/, ordered two of them. Main courses were Sea Bream for me, done to perfection! And Steak for my friend who wiped it clean. Desserts - try their baklava cheesecake- nothing like it. Date cake was also yum. Great food, loved the low noise level. Thank you for your hospitality
