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

We had a six day stay in Montreal at a rental apartment in the Plateau. We were so taken by the neighborhood that three of the days were spent wandering around. We were right off Ave Mount-Royal, so were within a few blocks of restaurants (haute cuisine or street food, with everything in between), wine shops, groceries, bakeries, butchers, fish... More

Having been to Montreal many times for work, I always make time to explore the Plateau. So many wonderful areas to enjoy a latte or beer! be sure to enjoy St. Denis and St. Laurent streets as well as St. Louis Square.

We were lucky enough to stay in the heart of Plateau for a whole week. Our hosts were fantastic and gave us a taste of true Canadian hospitality. We arrived in Plateau not feeling the best and we spent our first day (7 hours!!!) in a clinic waiting to see a doctor. After popping a few (prescribed) pills, we felt... More

Leave your car behind and take a stroll from one metro stop to the next. Go between sherbrooke and Mont Royal, with a detour to St. Laurent through Prince arthur. Things you will see- beautiful architecture, murals, restaurants, boutiques, diners, cafes, pubs, bakeries, the park Square St. Louis and fountain, tons diverse people to watch. Things you won't see- Tall... More

Get out of Downtown and the Old Montréal.. Le plateau Mont-Royal is a unique place where you can wander and appreciate the beautiful architecture and nice parks. Riding a bike in the plateau in summer is simply the best thing. Yes, it is kind of Hipstertown, but far less than the Mile end! Which is still Worth a visit as... More

Though we stay in Old Montreal, and during this time of the year it's quiet there, Mont Royal is always on our to visit list when in a Montreal. Quaint shops, lovely architectural, refined, and laid back. A must for us
