THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES Version Laurent Godbout Restaurant Review

: The problem with restaurants in Montreal’s Old Town is that given the high number of tourists, there are bound to be places that are overpriced and of sub-par quality. Even those establishments that try to maintain a high caliber inevitably succumb on occasion. Laurent Godbout's notable first restaurant, Chez L’Epicier, is just across the street. Version Laurent Godbout has met the high expectations, and serves up an affordable and very good lunch. The terrace is delightful, as the sounds of Old Town hum in the background. The dinner menu is detailed, with a Mediterranean emphasis. Choices include grilled beef sirloin with asparagus and truffle balsamic, Cajun and honey-glazed Guinea fowl, and a sumptuous cheese plate, with an impressive wine list (mostly Iberian and Italian) also at pleasing prices. And yet for all it has going for it, the eatery has a hit-or-miss quality for slow service on one occasion or unremarkable food on another. It has potential but falls trap to the tourist undertow of the location. To avoid possible disappointment, go for a splendid lunch on the outdoor terrace.
