Anybody been to the bistro at the Mont-Royal Pavillon?

I decided to take a (long) walk during lunch time to scope out the bistro that sits next to the Lac des Castors (I work near the top of Peel street). I didn't have a lot of time to examine things because I had to turn back quickly after reaching the chalet to get back to work.

When I arrived upstairs at the chalet, I was a bit confused, because there is a cafeteria counter, where you can order wraps or get sweets (they looked nice), chilled bottled drinks (the usual), or pick up a coffee. There's a section with brightly coloured chairs and pale tables that seems more suited for visiting groups of children, where indeed a young mother and two toddlers were enjoying sandwiches. Then I noticed the bar and more elegant tables area right next to it, and realised that the people eating outside were being attended to by a couple of waiters. Basically this space is trying to do a lot of things at the same time, catering to casual picnickers and bistro goers. It's very bright and pleasant but perhaps confused/ing!

I spotted the menu when I left and it looked very nice. It was probably the lunch-time menu. I noted Lobster Bisque, some appetizer with Brie, honey and pears (I think), and several salad-based meals. Also, a well filled one-page wine list. All in all, it looked good and not too extravagantly priced, but since I was in a rush, I didn't look at it closely enough. I think it's run by Montreal, in an effort to offer healthier, better fare.

I'm wondering if anybody here's tried said bistro on the mountain? I looked it up and it looks like they are calling Le Pavillon. I found this on the City's site
