Wine and Whimsy

My spouse and I love to go out for dinner and La Gargote is a favourite restaurant. In winter it is cosy and welcoming. Located in an old building in Old Montreal, the restaurant has large wooden beams on the ceiling. A fireplace adds warmth to both the room temperature and the atmosphere. Food is always good and the personnel are always welcoming (the owner remembered us even though we only go there a couple of times a year).

In summer there is an outdoor terasse - a delightful spot and a totally different atmosphere.

Enjoying the Atmosphere

Guarding the spot where the tables once sat was this jaunty fellow. He watches carefully though I think he will be absent when we once again have a summer meal here!


  1. wow, cool !

  2. Perhaps your dapper friend might like to meet my Snow Child - they might become friends. Cheers!
