This is such a fun place. It's in the middle of Montreal's gay district, which was clear since we were the only straight couple there. There's a huge selection of food it is delicious. We ordered the house poutine, and it was incredible. I had the salmon, and it was cooked perfectly, as were the sides. Drinks were amazing, and... More

Visited Saloon again recently and have to say I still love this restaurant! We've been coming here for years and keep coming back. Normally we visit for dinner on weekends but this time it was during a weekday at lunch. Much quieter, but still a great lively atmosphere. This was actually some of the best food we've had there, even... More

Had one of the "poshest" grilled cheese sandwiches ever. The cheeses, bread and prosciutto were of fine quality and the fries are like nothing I gave ever tasted before. Not sure if it's the type of oil (maybe peanut or canola), but they are so tasty and just melt in your mouth. Partner had a burger and he raved about... More

Saloon is easy to find, at night just look for the disco balls. Inside it is dark with lo-fi music with too much bass not so softly playing in the background. Greeted by a very nice host who sat me immediately. Gave me two menus, one in English as he heard me butcher his native tongue, and switched to English... More

I made a reservation three weeks ago for my birthday last night. I've been to this place twice before which is why I wanted to do my birthday there. But after my experience last night, I'll never go there again! I had friends from around here and from out of town come in just for my birthday. We were 12... More

In fact, food was pretty good. Prices were super inflated for this type of place. Restaurant half full, but waiter was in a rush to take our order. Then as soon as we were done with our our plates, he removed them, brought bills. Didn't even wait for our wallets to be out on the table. He just showed up... More

Eat here frequently, fine for a burger and great salads. It is just to me there are so many restaurants with better food, I don't understand the fuss.

Staying in The Village (Gay Village)

Neighborhood Profile
The Village (Gay Village)
The rainbow pillars of Beaudry Métro Station shepherd the way into to The Village, one of the largest hubs for gay and lesbian culture in North America. With an open layout and a congenial aura, the refurbished buildings along Rue Sainte-Catherine pay a special homage to menswear and to caffeine, with showrooms and cafes. By morning, the antiquing gems along Amherst Street are packed with collectors. An incredible party spot, The Village comes alive at night, when clubs, bars, and dance halls open their doors and the revelry is high, epitomized by the fanciful trimmings of the apropos Oscar Wilde building. From May to September, the area closes to automotive traffic, allowing restaurant terraces to pour onto the streets, creating a dynamic sense of community. Les Boules Roses, thousands of pink baubles, are hung to welcome in the festivals and celebrations, including Montréal en Arts, Divers-Cité, and the Pride Parade.
