We really enjoyed our dinner. The place is very nice, the wooden ceiling and wood everywhere gives a warm atmosphere. The servixe was great, prompt. Burgers were really good and all very well presented. I liked the simple menu. Desserts were unbelievably fantastic. Good price.

Great place to relax and share food in the company of friends. Very cozy place! The burger 2.0 can’t be beat! The grilled squid is great! And can’t forget the Canadian poutine with beef brisket!

These are small plates that are meant to be shared. We tried the gnocchi and seared ahi tuna. Interesting to taste, but do not come hungry.
