We went to Montreal for our anniversary last weekend and had a great time. we had asked someone at the tourist information service for the same recommendation. We wanted something small, informal, and family owned and we ended up at Boris' Bistro on mcgill. It was too high end for what we wanted. Does anybody know of something that offers french, casual, more peasant/rustic style, food of which I speak for future reference? We may go to Montreal in the future and I would love to get recommendations for the downtown, university,old montreal area.
