Wide variety of food - excellent service - the place to see and be seen in the Village. This venue has been in existence for 23 or so years, and just keeps on going... LIne-ups on some Friday or Saturday nights. Live DJ on week-ends.

Decent food with a good selection of vegetarian plates. Friendly service. Good experience over all. Started to get quite busy soon after opening for lunch. Would recommend if looking to eat in the village area and after burgers, salads or wraps.

We enjoyed this great gay bar in the center of the Village, we came back a second time in the same weekend. Even during the uber busy Pride weekend, the bi-lingual staff remained calm and professional. Wait times for tables were reasonable with the friendly waiters making sure you were well looked after. Outdoor tables afford the best people watching.... More

My wife and I recently had dinner there with a friend. The ambiance is great...the DJ plays great tunes. The music is not too loud so it's easy to have a conversation without screaming. The service is excellent. Food is great, we especially love the grilled cheese and the cowboy burger. When it comes to cocktails....well...the list is long...and everything... More

The food was excellent! I had the chicken and the egg as a healthy breakfast. The drink selections for brunch can't be beat. The restaurant staff is friendly and provides excellent service. You are allowed to take your time eating and enjoying the friendly ambiance.

Stopped in for a Bloody Caesar, the Canadian version of a Bloody Mary. Le Saloon made most of the "Best of" lists in Montreal when it came to Bloody Caesars, so we were hoping for for something to make us say "Wow!". "Wow!" What a delicious drink! Cold and refreshing, savory and spicy, served in a pint mug. A boldly... More

It was an amazing "Sunday brunch" The Crepes de Fruit were delightful. And it was a thrill to be in an a restaurant where people actually TALKED to each other and not to their cells

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.
