For French cuisine at its absolute finest, go to La Maison Verte. Situated in a 160-year old house in the West Island, the restaurant is a beautiful setting for a special celebration or just a beautiful night out.
My wife and I went to La Maison Verte to celebrate our anniversary, and what can we say: the food was superb! From the freshly prepared halibut and trout filets that we ordered, which were tender yet firm (cooked to perfection), to the refreshing sorbets that were given to us to cleanse our palettes after our freshly-prepared green salads, the staff at La Maison Verte don't miss a thing when it comes to providing patrons with top-notch food in a charming and warm setting (if the weather permits, sit on their terrasse and take in the spectacular waterfront views). They also have a wonderful selection of wines to pair with your meal, and we clanged glasses of Castello del Poggio red wine to celebrate our special milestone. Their vegetable veloute soup was also super tasty, and we indulged in a little dessert too (it was soooo good!).
The staff was helpful and yet non-intrusive, giving us an opportunity to eat a relaxed meal and reminisce about our wedding and the years since then. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience, and we'd definitely come back to La Maison Verte again (and we'd recommend it to our friends too!).
