There's a few restaurants that I frequent... Love this place, not only for it's eclectic decor (Moroccan theme), it's rooftop terrace, it's delectable menu, but the Chef is as talented as he is kind. Great for date night. And it's a bring your own wine.
I've dined here many times, and every time I go I remind myself to write a review because this restaurant deserves one. Well, I'm finally getting around to it.
This charming, beautifully decorated resto-pub is a favourite of mine. There's a warm inviting hearth welcoming you in the cold winter months and glowing lanterns on the outdoor terrace during those sultry summer evenings. I've never been disappointed nor have my family and friends.
The service, ambiance, wine list and menu are all excellent. The owner and his staff are personable and attentive without being intrusive. I'm going back this weekend. Looking forward to it as always.
It's the first time my friend and I had been to this new restaurant. We were greeted with a beautiful smile from Cynthia our hostess who is also an experienced wine Sommelier. We sat out on the sunny terrace surrounded by cedars giving it a cozy and intimate feel. With Cynthia's guidance and expertise she helped us pair a wine with our dishes. Both very good choices.
The lunch menu was superb which included a green salad topped off with fried shavings of leek and a champagne dressing, delicious! We both decided on the shrimp creole for our main dish as it is one of the chef's specialities. We weren't disappointed. And how wonderful to have 2 of the chefs visit our table before we left, what a treat!
Definitely have no reservations about recommending this restaurant, and we are already planning on attending a special evening of wine and food pairing on July 10th. Looking forward to our next visit!
Absolutely love this restaurant... In fact, have to say it is definitely my favourite on the West Island. We went there again last night for probably the sixth time and my sister and her beau joined us for the first time. The ambience is warm, trendy and inviting. The service is typically first rate, although a little on the slow side last night but this is unusual.
The food is quite exceptional: Within minutes of being seated they brought a plate of warm Italian style pan bread, sundried tomatoes and black olives.... very nice. We ordered the calamari as an appetizer and again were not disappointed by the quality (prepared just right) nor the portion size which was plenty for 4. My sister's boyfriend ordered the escargot as an appetizer which was served on garlic bread and he claimed was excellent. I am not fond of snails so did not sample. Then we all enjoyed the simple yet delicious house salad which is a mix of greens served with aged balsamic vinegar and olive oil. My husband who has been there more often than I (brings business associates there regularly and hosted his staff Christmas party there) ordered a dish off the menu of seafood pasta with his choice of scallops, shrimp, calarmari and baby clams served on a bed of spaghettini. He thoroughly enjoyed this dish. My sister and her boyfriend both order the Lobster stuffed ravioli which is a house staple, as their menu changes regularly but this favourite always remains. The boyfriend gave it five stars, my sister four. I savoured the fussili pasta with sundried tomatoes, mushrooms and grilled chicken. This dish was divine! Naturally the meal was accompanied by freshly baked bread. Our meals were all reasonably priced.
My only criticism is this... Although they do have a wonderful and extensive wine list and their staff was well versed in suggesting a wine to accompany our meal, the wine list is quite expensive. In fact, we ordered the second least expensive wine for $65 a bottle. Yes, the wine did compliment the meal quite nicely BUT it doesn't compare with the reasonably priced dishes.
Mind you, I prefer to leave this on a positive note, as the cuisine, service, ambience and overall dining experience is well worth a visit!
