Opened in 1967, this Greek-run restaurant has retro-kitsch charm. Old-school neon lights in the windows, leatherette stools, juke boxes in the booth seats and plenty of local characters. Service is friendly. There’s a Journal de Montreal on many of the tables, and they generally listen to the hockey game on the radio if the Habs are playing. And now for the poutine…
Fries: Good crispness, not too greasy, but generic oven-baked McCain frozen fries. 15/30.
Gravy: Quite tasty but slightly lumpy. Quantity and temperature are good. 40/50.
Cheese: Wimpy grated mozzarella (sacrilege!), and far too little of it. 0/20.
TOTAL SCORE: 55/100
Verdict: Mediocre, but they’d probably make a good frites-sauce if you’re stuck in Rosemont at 2AM.
Value: Fair – $5.99 for plate pictured above.
Opening Hours: 24 hours
Location: 2051, boulevard Rosemont, corner DeLorimier, Montreal, (514)722-8530
