One of a number of psarotavernas (Greek fish and seafood restaurants) to be found in the Montreal area, this one offers good food at reasonable prices in a comfortable setting. House specialties include fresh fish and seafood such as soft shell crab (in season) and red snapper—all are sold by the pound, and market prices vary. You can also get the typical Greek starters, such as fried eggplant (CAD7). Service is prompt, friendly and efficient. The lunch table d'hôte is a good deal, offering a starter and a choice of main courses for CAD13.95-17.95.
We had dinner last month on the recommendation of the hotel located around the corner. We started dinner with a dish that included zuchinni and eggplant chips. The waiter suggested the tzatziki as a good dip.
Octopus and oyster mushrooms followed, that were grilled to perfection.
Not all fish on the menu, we were told, are available every night. We settled for Pompano from Florida. At $ 56.00 for the two of us, it was not inexpensive, but that includes deliscious fava beans.
The waiters were great and knowladgeable of the city. It seemed like a restaurant that has a very steady clientel, as quite a few table knew each other.
A very delightful dinner.
We loved the variety of appetizers, including the octopus and oyster mushrooms. The Red Snapper was grilled to perfection. Very reasonable wine card. Good service and just around the corner from our hotel.
It was conveniently located to our downtown hotel, so that is why I booked our group of 8. The food was outstanding. The service was spot on and the wine list reasonable. We will return and try the lobster next time. They really took care of all our needs including a colleague who has an allergy. Loved the sword fish and octopus.
We have been to many seafood restaurants in North America. This is the best because of their wonderful selection and insistence on only the freshest fish available. Very well run restaurant and superb service. Expect to pay about $ 100 us for a nice meal with wine.
