Well before March we went and haven't been for ages. Restaurants are cute, with catchy names. Parking is a total disaster--take a taxi. Prices are exorbitant but food can be good or ordinary--depends where you go. Personally, Old Montreal is waaaaay better, but it's no bargain either. For me the plateau is a 'gotta miss' after years of trying.

Mont Royal is a must. It's a landmark right in the middle of the city. Very unique with a wonderful view of the city at the lookout points Don't say you did Montreal if you didn't go to the top of Mont Royal.

A crisp -17 Celsius with the sun out, gave a extremely good visibility overlooking on one side of Mont Royal, Laval and on the other side Montreal. Gives a birds eye view of two great cities.

My wife and I climbed up this"Mountain". In reality a very bih "HILL". I'm afraid of heights but wanted to explore. My wife loved it, but next time I'm sticking to the trails.

We were lucky enough to experience the annual Christmas Torchlit Parade when we visited Montreal. One of the highlights of the city for us. The evening started with a gathering of artist and performers in Parc Compagnons-de-St.Laurent. Kids running around excited in anticipation, a temporary Sugar Shack on hand to contribute to the sugar hits, the aroma of mulled wine... More

This is a great area to experience the local urban flavor of Montreal with boutique shops that offer a range of retail and small eateries. See others comments on the "hipster" aspect of the neighborhood). The quality varies across the diversity. Shop staff seems friendly speaking French or English and whatever the weather, you can enjoy a stroll here. (See... More

This is a beautiful and peaceful safe place to walk, run, bike. Can go for just a few minutes or hours. People even walk thru it too and from work evidently. We went to top. It is very safe. Impressed with the nature and cleanliness of it. The city of Montreal was amazing. I do not like cities - but... More

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.
