Tourworthy neighbourhood

I wasnt sure if it'd be worth my time but I was pleasantly surprised. It is a nice well maintained neighbourhood with shops, restaurants. It makes for a very relaxing walk.

Incredibly diverse, varied neighbourhood offering endless charm and opportunity! Any week of the year is good to visit but summer is best by far! Stay away from Amir Khadir, the anti-semetic provincial MNA who arranged an unfair boycott of Boutique Le Marcheur, an innocent shoe store offering Israeli made products!

This is the area to visit for those who appreciate seeing old neighborhoods very nicely maintained. These buildings include many Jewels Of Montreal sought out by local artists and so many photographers. Safe and friendly side streets ideal for walking and biking. Most people smile back to you and like to chat. Area around park avenue and St Viator ,... More

This is a nice neighborhood to walk around in and check out the scattered shops, bars and restaurants. I enjoyed walking everywhere, but it's easy to get around via bus. In the summer months take a bike rental.

A bit hipster, a bit multiculti, a bit expensive. Mile-End is now better but I liked living there. Just to be there, on a shopping there, walking in the streets, ... Montreal I love you.

I've been coming to Montreal about 4 times a year for a decade, and by accident I chose a B&B in this neighborhood on my first trip. The B&B no longer exists, but I'm still here, and can't imagine staying anywhere else. Of course, you could just visit for a few hours, but I love it so much I can't... More

If you love walking and taking in beautiful old houses, typically Montreal architecture, quirky shop and restaurants the Pateau Mont-Royal is for you . Be sure to take a stroll along Mont-Royal avenue, St-Laurent and St-Denis streets.

I had grown up in this area, many many years ago. It was a rough lower/middle class neighbourhood. Well things have changed. We stayed in the Plateau for 3 nights and walked everywhere. The excellent restaurants are tucked within the neighbourhood and only found if recommended. Shops and cafes are everywhere. We walked approx 10 km daily, so while we... More

This is a neighbourhood that is VERY special. Nightlife is good, make sure you go by St Denis or St Laurent street. Lots of food, lots, of bars, shopping is great. This is a nice place to have brunch. Average age group is 20-35 years old.

Thank Marie Helene A

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.
