Lonely Planet review

Nestled amid a forest of skyscrapers, this Victorian villa has been a Montréal institution since 1949. A few popular dishes include bison with wild berries, duck confit, grilled marinated salmon and rack of lamb, plus escargot to start things off. The upper dining floors are most atmospheric, stuffed as they are with paintings and antiques, though in the summer you can also dine alfresco on the front terrace. Reservations recommended.
