It's a long walk to the top! We went to Belvidere first, then stopped at the Chalet on the way down. Beautiful views both places and got some good exercise from the long walk. The park itself and the miles of pathways make this a bit like New York City's Central Park. Relaxing and enjoyable.

Very nice neighborhood that had me thinking I could totally live here. Aside from how clean it is, it was m first glimpse into the laid back, diversity that seems to exist in Montreal.

Walked what seemed like forever down Mont-Royal and was not impressed. Went to St. Denis and Duluth and found much of the same. Restaurants that serve frites, odd shops. Did not appeal to us at all.

It's a beautiful area with lots of shops and restaurants away from the more crowded parts of the city. Take a few hours to wander through the area and stumble into one of the many hole in the wall restaurants for a good beer.

Stroll on Mont Royal street... see the cool side of town with great cafes, bakeries, shops, cool people walking around everywhere. Get a feel for a Euro region with laid back atmosphere.

A beautiful park setting on the mountain. Lots of trails, picnic tables and lookout views onto Montreal. Spend the day walking, playing, bike riding or just relaxing under the trees. Fun for all ages!!

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.
