I have spent a lot of time in Plateau over the last 20 years and it is one of those places where I feel like I am at home in the place where I belong. Plateau has a cosmopolitan and urbane atmosphere populated by cafes and restaurants and plenty of bars, but also calm and peaceful with beautiful parks within... More

Plateau Mont Royal is a great area to stay when in Montreal, close to shops, great restaurants, bars, cafe's and pubs. It is also a very attractive part of Montreal with lots of leafy parks, gardens and beautiful traditional houses. Also easy walking to the Parc du Mont Royal and old Quebec City and the river.

There are many different accesses to Mont Royal. Take any one and follow the families with kids and dogs on the hike that will lead you up, to the best outlook of Montreal. I recommend bringing along some cheese and bread, and, if the weather is nice, lie down in the sun close to the lake. Best program possible!

Filled with family owned boutiques, shops, and cafes, this area is is full of culture and cool places to see! I would suggest bringing a good pair of walking shoes as theres tons of street art, beautiful parks, and historic buildings to see!

Very interesting neighborhood - you will find many little bakeries as well as Fairmont Bagels here, many interesting shops and it is walking distance from downtown (1 - 2 miles). Great place to hang out.

This place is overrated. It's nice to walk but I wouldn't consider it a ''must see''. First of all, if you travel by car, the streets are always under repair and finding parking is next to impossible. There are many more better places to see!

2 of the best restaurants we visited in Montreal were in this area, and it's a nice, trendy area to go for a walk. We found it kind of a mix of Old Montreal food and friendliness with New Montreal style.

Maybe all BC BG live there, but it is certainly a quarter where a visitor must go! Many good restaurants, a great walk in a verry lively quarter is offered to you right at the exit of Mont-Royal metro station! Go there and you will find more than one can expect! There is even a bus leaving the metro station... More

Loved crawling around this gracious neighborhood high above Montreal. A real contrast to the downtown neighborhoods. Houses built into the face of the hill cover 4-5 stories.

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
