What can I say? Ever since GeckoGo-Aaron found this place, we’ve been hooked. A delicious fusion of French and South American food with very reasonable prices for the quality, knowledgeable staff, and toys on the table makes this a loveable and fun place to have cravings for. It is one of my top 3 favourite restaurants in Montreal. An ever-changing menu means that there’s always something new to discover, and the table d’hôte menu options are always mouth-wateringly good. Without wine, the meals are quite affordable, at around $40 including tax, appetizer, main, dessert and coffee or tea; with wine, you can easily top $70 a head. Add to the fact that I can never resist adding the amuse bouche (the last time it was fois-gras with apricot and simply out of this world), and things go a little fou from there. I highly recommend this place, and in fact, I ’m always out evangelizing it. Yummy!

I think this is pretty much my favourite restaurant in all of Montreal. Every day, the menu changes based on the availability of super-fresh ingredients so the quality of the food is always top-notch. And the dishes themselves are always incredible - I can still remember their scallop ceviche with lime juice and just a hint of coconut - best ceviche I ever had. If you end up in Montreal someday, go there!

A top notch French/Latin fusion restaurant that I found while doing searches on food websites. It's a bit out of the way from downtown Montreal (a neighbourhood favourite that's good enough to be a destination restaurant). There are some cool toys as decorations, and the food is outstanding. I've had amazing ceviche, lamb, and foie gras with fig dishes and would definitely go anytime I'm in Montreal.
