Set in an anonymous landscape, the cold exterior of this deluxe French bistro belies a warmth that has attracted patrons ever since Guy and Dodo opened shop. Inside, the setting is magical, warm, graceful and elegant all at the same time. But the food is the real attraction, luring in both casual diners and the gourmets of this world. Tables d'hôte (CAD30-40) come with soup, appetizer, main course, dessert and coffee, but the menu's real star is the famous confit de canard (duck breast). Dinner for two shouldn't exceed CAD85.
The confit de canard (aged duck leg) was outstanding and well worth the visit. The skin was crisp, the flesh was moist but not fatty or greasy, and the flavor was wonderful. The rest of my meal was solid, but not outstanding. I was in Montreal on business and therefore dinned alone. Which is always difficult for the staff to deal with, but the service was attentive with out being over bearing. The suggested wines (available by the glass) complemented my food well. The confit made the meal; it is now my gold standard to compare the offerings of other restaurants to.
