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!!

It is really beautiful, if you are visiting Montreal you have to visit the Plateau and to go up to Mont-royal, the view from the top is amazing!! I totally recommend.

An excellent place to live or rent a vacation apartment, near shops, bars, restaurants, cafes, parks, a place near the places where you can visit museums, Old Montreal, near subway stations and bus instead. Quiet and safe at all hours of the day. In all seasons has its charm, with snow and summer.

I recommend a morning trip to the Chalet to see the view on Montreal with the sun on your face. There is an old, beat up piano that a young woman used to serenade visitors. If you're looking for a little exercise, put on your running shoes and take the winding loop that leads to the top of the hill... More

Lovely to stroll along Mont-Royal avenue or any number of the side street with wonderful architecture. Can also be your stating point to go to the mountain (bus 11 behind the metro station).

The Plateau is full of great restaurants, bars and funky shops. If you are familiar with NYC it feels very much like the East Village or Lower East Side. It is an ideal place to stay for a long weekend. There is easy access to metro, so you can easily reach Old Montreal, Downtown and Olympic Park. Many of the... More

We were here at the park at the base of Mont Royal last Sunday ( on Ave Parc) Amazing experience! The Tam Tam players were there and so were thousands of people enjoying the beautiful day, some dancing to the music, sun bathing, people watching, etc. Was a great idea to come here after a relaxing breakfast / lunch in...

Of all the cities I saw while studying in Canada, Montreal was my most favourite one. And my most favourite spot was clearly the viewpoint from the plateau - we visited during Indian Summer; the red leaves in front of the skyline were amazing.

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.
