Le Filet

Le bistro Le Filet puise son inspiration du côté de la mer. Amarré au cœur du Plateau Mont-Royal, il séduit d’abord par son décor contemporain composé de laiton chatoyant, d'acier galvanisé et d'ardoise naturelle. Poissons et fruits de mer composent plusieurs petits plats façon tapas ainsi que des assiettes plus copieuses à déguster à deux. L’atmosphère est pétillante, la carte des vins, inspirée, et la nourriture, divine.
