A great lunch place- but expect a wait

I found this restaurant on a "best of" list. It lived up to the hype, unfortunately other people seem to be in on the secret. We got here about 1 on a weekday and there were already people waiting outside/ inside. We put our names on the list and only had to wait about 15 minutes. In the... read more

If you've read up on Montreal at all you've noticed that Olive et Gourmando shows up on almost every single best-of list for which it qualifies. When we finally made it to that end of Old Montreal it was with only an hour or so to catch our train, so we popped in for some take-out. "The Reubenesque" sandwiches were... More

Totally packed and now I know why. At 2pm I waited 30 minutes for a bench because the lunch crowd was still present. Fabullous #24 salad which had fried shallots, daikon, tofu, peanuts and so much more. It was incredible!! Pastries to go looked fab - check it out.

On the strength of Fodor's guide to Montreal, tucked away in the old part of the city, we paid this place a visit. No stars there at the time of our visit to mingle with. Instead, a long line up at 1:30 on a Saturday afternoon; but we were soon seated at the bar looking out into the street. Full... More

We had a wonderful lunch, we had great service, it was a crazy scene with a weird mixture of French and English being spoken but would definitely go again. Definitely part of the local scene.

We came in here for lunch and were not disappointed - their sandwiches were super tasty as was the soup of the day. It's a nice quaint restaurant, probably a bit too crowded during the lunchtime with a line waiting to get in. The service was pleasant and very welcoming.

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
