We're only in Montreal for a short 8 day trip but we made sure to reserve at table here months in advance after hearing so many rave reviews.
To my delight we were certainly not let down. Firstly the atmosphere and decor are very old school down to the details...a classic phone on the bar.
The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful consistently checking in our table to see if all was well.
Now to the food, simply divine.
It's not fine dining fancy fluffy mini dishes but rather rich flavors and great serving sizes.
We started with a deviled egg & the fish croquettes- I would recommend them for sure.
As mains I had the braised beef which so succulent and the meat just fell apart. The accompanying sauce and mash were rich and scrumptious. My husband had the mussels which were so tasty and fresh.
Now on to the highlight and delight... the sticky toffee pudding. This is what lead me to taverne after reading great reviews of their sticky toffee. I will say that their take on sticky toffee is now sitting on my top 3 all time. Sticky toffee is my favorite dessert and this was spectacular. Rick, fluffy, both heavy and light at the same time. It was so good that I'm contemplating one more stop before we head home.
It's such a shame that it was a bit too dark inside to capture the food.
Taverne is a great place for both couples & friends... it's for anyone who wants a laid back atmosphere and some seriously good food.
