***Closed for the 2019 season, looking forward to seeing you in 2020! ***

A unique vantage point

Nothing punctuates warm weather better than those scents of summertime-grilling. This stunning rooftop space offers premium cuts of meat and fresh fish, expertly prepared to order on the outdoor grill. Its vantage point, unique: rather than soar above the Old City’s many landmarks it sits roof-level with the Notre Dame Basilica, offering detailed views of century-old architecture. Spin 180 degrees and you’re facing the majestic river port that runs along the beautiful St. Lawrence.

Every Thursday, mingle with Old Montreal’s favourite happy hour crowd. Enjoy delicious smoothies, served spiked or virgin, and choose from a list of expertly updated cocktails. For the perfect summer quencher, try the white sangria made with sparkling wine!

It took a while for us to receive our cocktail, in fact I received my starter before having a drink in hand. The food was okay- I had a quiche starter, that was good because I was famished- however there was no wow! factor here.
My main dish, the energy bowl had delicious ingredients and at first I was impressed. Unfortunately there was a pool of oil hidden in the bottom of my dish. Once I tossed the ingredients everything was too oily to enjoy. This actually changed my initial “yum” to a yuck. Unfortunately.

The setting itself is nice, we sat on the sunny terrasse which was a big reason for the outing. Sipping champagne following our meal was delightful. Our waiter was prompt with the bottle service.

Overall it was good, I was in good company.

En ce qui a trait au respect des mesures sanitaires, tout était parfait, à l’exception de notre serveur qui semblait ne pas respecter la distanciation en s’approchant très près de nous physiquement pour nous servir et desservir. De plus, malgré le peu de personnes dans le restaurant, nous avons attendu au moins 15 minutes pour qu’on prenne notre commande et il fallait lui faire signe pour tout. Peut-être la chaleur de cette journée ou un peut trop de cannabis avant son quart de teavail..! Enfin, le Daiquiri pourrait être amélioré et augmenté en quantité.

My sister and I resumed our monthly brunches. We decided to reserve a terrace. At hotel Nelligan in old port, on the 5th floor, the beautiful terrace welcomes you with open arms. The staff are friendly, amiable and super hygienic. I started my brunch with a grapefruit mimosa; it was lovely and soothing. Then, we started with mushroom quiche and pastries as appetizers. The quiche was delicious, flavorful and it had a stunning presentation with apple coleslaw on the side. The pastries were unremarkable. The main dishes were a letdown. It had a sloppy presentation. The salmon Benedict was so bland. The energy bowl (chickpeas, eggs, chickens, green beans, walnuts, corn, bok choy, and avocado...) was soaking in a pond of oil. Both main dishes were not finished. The prices were little bit high for the quality of food. In overall, the best part of this terrace was the service.

Calamari Tender juste à point, recommend. Octopus in ink, delicious and lobster rolls was nice too. Good distanciation.
Was a very hot day, but always a nice brise to keep you cool. Background view on the st Laurent river , can see but far.
Will go again.

Only thing I’ll say is that only like 40% of the menu food items were available.. the selection that was left wasn’t the best, but still good!
Service was best

It took around 25-30minutes to get our drinks....

We arrived earlier than planned and opted for a regular table as the high top table was exposed to the strong midday sun.
Our meals were just OK. Fish and chips and grilled veggie wrap with very ordinary mesclun salad.
Our waiter's Nautical t-shirt (uniform) was dirty and I called him on it in a friendly manner.
Lunch with one cocktail each, not including tip was about 75$. I was disappointed because I had a friend visiting from Texas and wanted her to have a lovely time and good food. Unfortunately it didn't work out as well as I had hoped
