I shop there weekly. In the past month i have noticed a huge decline in quality. I suspect they are not handling food properly. On November 28 I purchased Kibbe Saniyee from there prepared foods counter, when I got home I opened it and discovered the meat had gone bad. On December 22 I purchased some uncooked italian sausage from the butcher case, once again, it was rancid when I opened it when I got home. Also, I used to love the grilled chickens with garlic mayo. The last time I purchased it, the chicken was excellent, but the garlic mayo was awful. Friuits and veggies are still great, but, I'd avoid the meats and prepared foods. Staff is always friendly and helpful.
I am a "Foodie" and have a circle of friends who like me love specialty items and great quality meats and seafood with of course all the fruits and vegetables necessary to prepare interesting and sometimes out of the ordinary dishes. Any excuse to go into Montreal will include a pit-stop at Adonis. I live in North Lancaster Ontario (50 minutes) and have often picked up items for friends living in my area (Alexandria, Maxville etc) while there. Cheese, breads, rapini, bokchoi, pine nuts and on and on and for an added bonus usually come home with a prepared specialty that is ready to eat since you can leave the market with groceries and freshly sliced chicken, lamb, beef cooked Arabic / Mediterranean style and more. If you're a cheese-hound like me you have to see this selection. I also find the service excellent and employees courtious and prompt despite being very busy at times. My final comment is that it is nice to see a grocery store with plenty of staff intead of the usual situation where you're left on your own to figure everything out or have to hunt for employees.

Adonis sells fresh produce, great meats and cheeses, and other common super market items. The "grill" area. OMG...food heaven. Despite the madness of the checkout lines (and theres a reason why it's so hectic... good sign)...Adonis, you have made me a fan!
