Plateau Mont-Royal is the hip place in Montreal. It has 4 streets that I really like : St-Denis, St-Laurent, Mont-Royal, and Laurier. All of these streets are filled with Cafés, Pubs, Restaurants, boutiques, etc. It also has three wonderful parks : Parc Laurier, Parc Lafontaine, and Parc Jeanne-Mance.

This was my favourite part of Montreal when I visited in 2013. My friend and I, living in Ontario at the time, had been feeling somewhat lost in all the French that characterizes Montreal, but kinds of forgot all about that while strolling around in this part of the city. Here you can find bars, restaurants, cafés and quaint shops.... More

If you're going to pick one other neighborhood to visit in Montreal, besides Old Montreal, this is it. Streets lined with beautiful houses. Delicious weekend brunch spots like Lawrence and Fabergé. Great bars and fun night spots. The Plateau is where you go for a good time. No matter what your definition of a "good time" is.

Plateu Mont Royal is a big neighborhood. We enjoyed riding through it with the Hop on Hop Off tour bus and the next day we got off and walked for an hour to indulge in the sights and sounds of the streets surrounding the area. The cafes and the houses are beautiful and the streets are very clean. Our walk... More

Best Place in Montreal. Places like this makes Montreal a liveable city. I love all Mont-Royal. If you are just visiting is a must to see and experience it, if you live in the city, please enjoy it!

The plateau is a pretty neighborhood in Montreal. It has both a mix of old living area and a lively shopping street. Great place to spend an evening. It also is less touristy than the Old Montreal area.

Our experience in the Plateau area was a welcome respite from the intensity of the Latin Quarter (LQ), Old Montreal, the cathedrals, etc. We went to Montreal to relax, but got caught up in sightseeing and navigating traffic until we experienced the restaurants and easy pace of the Plateau District, especially near Av du Mont-Royal and Rue Saint-Denis. We found... More

We made the trek with our three teens and had a great time. Bring a snack and water as there is not anything for sale during your hike. Break off the beaten path through the woods on some of the newly forged trails. Wear good shoes and bring a camera. Prepare to spend three to four hours to go up... More
