Urgent! Warm, cozy, fish-friendly, little bit upscale restaurant needed in Plateau! Ambience a must.

My friend's coming for her birthday and she couldn't get into Pied. There must be some great places along Mont Royal or between there and Rachel or there and St. Joseph that I can tell her to try!

    1. Since you were prepared to go to Au Pied de Cochon, why not try "La Salle a Manger"?

      1. My first thought was also La Salle a Manger.

        1. Agree with the other suggestions - another possibility might be Cafe Sardine. I haven't tried it myself (yet!) but the recent review in the Mirror makes it sound like it might fit the bill.

              Le Filet is great but it isn't exactly warm and cozy.

                  Well, it gets pretty hot in there and the seating arrangement is certainly very cozy... ;)

                  I get what you're saying though. APDC is not a warm and cozy, but Le Filet's decor is pretty cold and harsh.

                    We did O'Thym, which is probably my favorite resto in Mtl, all things considered. And the atmosphere in Pied is totally warm and cozy, everything looks buttery and lovely, although it's loud as hell.
