***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!

The ambiance on the Terrace was perfect. Beautiful warm sunny day and the tables were well distanced with a view on the port. We asked for the menu, and were told that taking a photo of the sticker on our table provides the menu on our phones. This is really inconvenient. The sun shines directly on your screen, the print is small and you have to keep scrolling. Not a good experience. The food arrived promptly and was very good. The bill arrived and for lunch it was a very reasonable $32 with tax. I gave the waitress a $50 bill. She asked me if I wanted any change. What? In spite of the menu and being hustled by the waitress I still recommend this restaurant. Just use your credit card.

Nice terrace with an amazing view.
Great service.
The quality of food does not worth the price.
Drinks are a bit pricey but taste amazing.

Great and very overwhelming staff! Food was amazing, I wasn't fan of the salad on my brunch but no big deal. There was missing a bit of music on the new section. Quality/price was beyond great.

J’ai toujours une bonne expérience lorsque que je visite ce restaurant. Mon seul point négatif est l’aspect Covid. Le gouvernement dit qu’une visière ne remplace pas un masque et plusieurs employés n’avaient pas de masque sous leur visière. Cela m’a déranger lors du service. Sinon la nourriture les drinks et le service de ma serveuse était parfait.

The view and the decor is amazing. The sangria is sooo good, I mostly go for that. The food is just ok, all 4 of us agreed on that after trying the lots of item on the menu. Great spot for a drink on the terrasse.

A superb place to enjoy the view of the St Lawrence river and Old Montréal. It was my husband’s birthday and he really enjoyed the food and drinks. Staff was very friendly and smiling. Even had a free dessert for the birthday.
Good on a nice sunny afternoon or a night to enjoy lights from the city.

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.
