"Excellent as Always!"
Went there today for lunch, a little treat to myself and a welcome change. I had the Roast beef sandwich with Cesar salad. The sandwich was moist and just plain great!...no fatty rubbery pieces of meat. The dipping sauce was a bit salty, but forgivable. Overall amazing lunch experience in the West Island!

The food is good, nothing more. Surprising on the menu. The server is on the verge of being aggressive ... The decor has been viewed 100 times.

"I was quite impressed!..."
I was quite impressed! A nice selection of food to choose from (from pizza to fish and of course steak). I had the fish which was very good. Appetizer of bruschcetta (the waiter's suggestion) was excellent. Waiter was very attentive and helpful!

"The service was warm..."
The service was warm and welcoming. The food was absolutely fresh and tasted divine! (Try the pasta...it's made fresh daily, so is the dinner bread!). It's a great place for an intimate dinner, a girl's night out, and even a family dinner. A 5* for sure!
