During a visit to Ottawa, we dined here twice in a week. Yes, we went back! On our first visit we had been traveling all day and arrived just as they were closing the kitchen. No matter, the proprietor offered to get us something. "We have some short ribs we have been cooking - how about that?" We said yes,... More

Cool little spot with a bar and maybe a dozen tables. Tasty cocktails. Had some tapas (falafel and mini pulled pork tacos) both were fresh and tasty. The pork belly main was quite the hit.

My partner and I visited Canada for the first time and stayed in Gatineau. Neither of us speak French and found this little restaurant. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helped with the translation of the menu. The food arrived and was fantastic. So good that we decided to return 2 days later. I would definitely recommend eating here if... More

Met two colleagues for lunch. Great esoteric beer choices and a different lunch special every day, as well as the chef's daily burger creation. We enjoyed great service and wonderful food at very reasonable prices.

Wonderful, friendly service and scrumptious offerings for brunch. My friend and I shared the poutine with duck and arugula ... Gravy was just right and the proportion of gravy and cheese was nicely balanced. The waitress we had used to be a customer who went there so often that they offered her a job! Now, if that is not a... More

I was at this restaurant for a team lunch. The location is great, food and service was impecable. We were about 15 people and although it was a little tight it was a very good lunch.

Wanted 2 foreign visitors to experience a little bit of the Quebec side of the capital region so came here for lunch. This part of the city of Gatineau (Hull) is vibrant on business days (government workers) and a little bit on weekend nights (clubs) but is otherwise tumbleweed territory. Most restaurants not open for lunch on Saturday for example... More

Quirky place in Old Hull. A little tough to find. Roads closed off around and GPS wasn't too helpful. And walking the few blocks past other restaurants and bars on a Wednesday evening looked a bit like a ghost town. Many places were closed and those that weren't, did not have many folks in them. This place looked like a... More
