    Desserts are great. Ambiance is lovely w/the jazz music starting around 6pm. Get there before 6 (like 5:30) to snag a table for dinner. When we left around 7 a line had formed outside the restaurant

    This is one of my favorite spot, always a great jazzy ambiance with a great live band (most of the time). Good sangria and food for everyone's taste.

    The salads (which are more like chicken accompanied by a salad) were very original and interesting. I had the Asian salad with chicken and it was very satisfying and delicious. Nice atmosphere as well

    The rabbit crêpe is super rich (in the most delicious way). Also try the homemade lemonade! The maple pudding and the pecan flaky pastry are also must haves! Food. coma.

    Indoor/outdoor restaurant in Montreal's old district. Has live jazz every night and a very nice outdoor garden to eat in. Definitely a good place for dinner and the food isn't too pricey.

    Tourist area restaurant that is actually a nice way to spend time- lovely back garden is multi-tiered with live music. Have a beer or a glass of wine and a crêpe.

    The crêpes, particularly the ones with pesto, are excellent. The sangria is great here too! Make sure you sit outside though - I'm all about that walled garden!

    Lobster salad was amazingly fresh and flavorful. Shrimp pizza and mushrooms brie crepe were okay. Don't leave without trying pudding chomeur.

    Great service and you must sit on the terrace and listen to live jazz. Try the melon sangria, it's fantastic. Our serve was Sandrine (she was great!)

    Had the lobster salad and enjoyed it to no end. Sweet and savoury, with fresh fruits and a very generous scoop of lobster!

    A bit expensive, but it's worthwhile on a nice summer day when they have live jazz!

    Try the Cheesecake crepe - delicious. (Although I think it's too much sweetness for one person- we split it between two).

    Beautiful outdoor terrace with live jazz. Feels like Southern France. Avoid the chocolate decadent crepe though - too heavy. Other food was great.

    Touristy, but tasty! Can't go wrong with a crêpe and a lemonade out on the terrace.

    Rabbit meat in the Saddje of Rabbit Crepe is rather chalky and definitely too salty. More portobello would be better. Melon Sangria is so so - very sweet and the only thing melony abt it is the color
