Has anyone eaten at this place? I have heard it is good but cannot find any reviews of it. Thanks for any info.

    I finally tried this place and I give a big thumbs up! Not a huge menu but each dish we had was excellent, generous portions and reasonable prices. Only downside, if you can call it that, is that it is really small. Room for about 15 people only and hours are Mon - Thurs 9-6,Fri,Sat and Sun 9-3. We had an order of lasagna, huge portion and very good. I have a chef's omleete. Very good,lots of cheese and grilled vegees. Came with toast,potatoes and side salad. Three of us started with carrot soup. A few desserts were in display case and looked yummy but we were all too full to indulge. A nice large cup of coffee at end of meal and soup at beginning of meal only for an additional $1.25. Highly recommend. Cote st-Luc road at Randall in NDG.

        Sorry, I mixed up this restaurant with another one (Parthenon, greek on Van Horne and CDN) with the detail about coffee and soup for an additional $1.25. Soup at Manger avec Eric was an additional $1.95 which is still reasonable. Enjoy!!

          Small but good! Wish they can expand...

        The Suburban has an online review of the place.

            Unfortunately I could not access that link. My initial posting still stands if anyone else has eaten there or knows someone who has. Thanks.

              Opened the link without a problem... (mac). Sounds really great interesting story and background of the chef. Will try it next week!

                It's a Flash newspaper so maybe you need to upgrade your version of Flash? I took a screeenshot of it and will attach here - not sure if it'll be readable.

                  Yes, it is readable. Thank you so much. That is so kind of you.

                    My pleasure. Thanks for bringing up this restaurant, which I hadn't noticed nor heard of. It sounds like it has potential, though I'm always skeptical of raves in the Suburban as they *all* seem to be raves. ;-) Looking forward to hearing someone's first-person account and I'll report back here if I try it.

                      Eons ago, it seems, I used to work at The Suburban and know Mike Cohen, the fellow who wrote the review. While the paper does tend to go easy in its reviews as they prefer to promote an advertiser, knowing Cohen I think the review can be considered pretty fair. He's the type of fellow who would simply pass on writing the feature if the place proved lousy.

                        It's not actually a restaurant review(no mention of any dishes he tried). More like a promo write-up.

                          «More like a promo write-up.»

                          Par for the Suburban course. It's short on other, potentially revealing specifics too (which "downtown coffee shop"? which "Old Montreal hotel"?).
