Great lunch

Nice atmospherE, hospitable staff. Service a tad slow but we were not in a hurry so it was fine. Overall, a pleasant experience (particularly since most restaurants are closed Christmas week).

Tasty, neat ambiance . Food was good. don't order beer here unless you want to spend an arm and a leg. I had had a beer the day before at a comparable restaurant and it was $4.75. Beer are $8.00 here... We had no idea there would be such a difference.

After a morning of exploring the RESO, my constant travelling companion and I needed some fuel to continue our Montreal Adventures. We headed for Old Montreal with the hopes of finding a table at a couple of places that were on our list to dine. Marche de la Villette wasn't on that list, but driving past the place in the...

As soon as you walk through the doors (or even looking through the windows) you feel like you have arrived to a place lost in time. The place is packed and lively. The wait staff are very good and friendly and happy to work on your french with you. They even brake into a french song every now and then.... More

MUST try little lunch gem at the corner of St. Paul & St. Pierre. Busy with tourists and locals alike all in culinary heaven with selections like French Onion soup & quiche, croque monsieur, cheese/meat plate or decadent fondue. Lovely bustling atmosphere is part of the charm, worth a couple of minutes wait if you need to! Took a minute... More

We had recently checked into our hotel and hadn't eaten all day, so we took a walk down Rue Saint-Paul looking for some place for a casual bite to eat, and came upon Marche de la Villette. One look through the window told us that this was the kind of place we had in mind. It was quite full but... More

This was our first restaurant in Montréal, and we enjoyed so much! the atmosphere is relaxed, lively, and the food - cold cuts and terrines - very satisfying. Service is OK. Just a minor drawback: they serve only a couple of reds and a couple of whites, bottle or by the glass, so a very limited choice. Would happily return.

This place is a classic bistro charcutterie with panache; informal with entertaining waiters, great meat and cheese plates, and a favourite of locals working in the neighborhood. An authentic restaurant not putting on airs. If you love a small spot with character, heart, good food, and relaxed informality, this is a must stop local hot spot that will bring you... More

Obnoxious accordion music plus faux French countryside theme park setting. Almost impossibly slow service. Worst though, was the salad nicoise. Made with CANNED tuna. At the price we paid, it was offensive. Almost forgot to mention they were out of gazpacho at 11:30 AM. Skip it. We only went in because it was thanksgiving, and not much else was open.

Please don't come here. What a joke. I got the ham and cheese crepe, my wife got the quiche. Mine came slathered in maple syrup, the quiche was dry and crumbly and, yes, slathered in maple syrup. And the price? What an insult.

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.
