If you're going to pick one other neighborhood to visit in Montreal, besides Old Montreal, this is it. Streets lined with beautiful houses. Delicious weekend brunch spots like Lawrence and Fabergé. Great bars and fun night spots. The Plateau is where you go for a good time. No matter what your definition of a "good time" is.

Plateu Mont Royal is a big neighborhood. We enjoyed riding through it with the Hop on Hop Off tour bus and the next day we got off and walked for an hour to indulge in the sights and sounds of the streets surrounding the area. The cafes and the houses are beautiful and the streets are very clean. Our walk... More

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

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
