At the crossroads of yesteryear and tomorrow lies the exclusive XO Le Restaurant in the Hotel Le St-James. Housed inside the former Banker's Hall of the Merchants' Bank dating from 1870, in the Quartier International, every aspect of XO oozes splendour and sophistication: classy cuisine, sumptuous décor, and elegant service.
When it comes to culinary creativity, Chef Éric Gonzalez and his team don’t disappoint, delivering inventive French cuisine made from fresh, seasonal ingredients. Watermelon and hamachi salad, scallop risotto and beef tartare are but a few of the delights included in the clever menu.
Likewise, the wine list includes a rich selection of treasures, carefully chosen by their own sommeliers, from the world's leading cellars.
In grand ballroom style, the exquisite dining room includes a lounge plus two beautiful mezzanines under a striking two-storey ceiling, while alcoves offer quiet nooks for more intimate conversations or special events.
From breakfast meetings to evening cocktails to twilight romantic dining, XO offers a stylish setting at any time of day. Come Friday, XO Le Restaurant hosts an evening of fine dining, signature cocktails and live jazz as of 7 p.m.
