4 Restaurants in "Old Montreal"

Can anyone provide some insight regarding Chez Delmo, Les Remparts, La Bonaparte and La Maree? I will be visiting Montreal in the early fall and will be staying and dining in the Old Montreal area.

    I stayed in the Auberge de Vieux Port when we were in Montreal, and we had a lovely meal at Les Remparts

    Appetizers -- A wild boar in phyllo that was amazing, the foie gras was less so because it was served with red peppers which overwhelmed the delicate flavor.
    Main courses -- I had duck in a sweetish sauce, my bh had venison with salsify -- both were excellent.
    Dessert -- we shared maple creme brulee, which was also delicious.
    The service was very sweet and attentive, but it didn't come cheap. Still, it was a very worthy dining experience. I also recommend the hotel highly. Enjoy!
