OK, not really a restaurant. For the macarons lovers though, especially gluten-free types, this is a must go to place. Located in old Montreal, on Plateau Royal, it is great to go to in when weather is good - nice neighbourhoods to stroll thru, to get to THE place. Winter time will be tough - Montreal tends to be cold.... More

We enjoy the ambience, makarons and ice-cream. All fine, reasonably priced, absolutely worth a visit if you like makarons.

They were excellent, though some flavors a bit too sweet. Large selection of interesting flavors. They also varied in texture more than macarons typically do. That being said, they were not as expensive as I am used to for macarons (a box of 10 was $15, whereas in NYC at Laduree it's almost double this).

We were referred to Point G by a Montreal local, who told us these were the best macarons she had ever had. And she was absolutely right. It's about a 10 minute walk from the closest metro stop, and totally worth the trip. We got 20 macarons for $28 - which were packed in a plastic container and a box,... More

Selection was big, and we personally tried about ten different flavors. The store is all about macaroons, and that is what we were looking for. I did not care for boxes the macaroons were packed. They looked cheep. I do not care for the name of the store either. It looks more like sex shop from outside, than a pastry... More

Super fun, colourful little dessert shop, with the best-tasting macaroons. So many flavours to choose from, you won't be disappointed. A little pricey if you buy many, but don't let this stop you!

Great macarons, the chocolate one is to die for. 6 units for 10 dollars. It´s not cheap but they are really high quality so is worth it.

We were in Plateau Mont Royale for an extended weekend. I believe we stopped in every day! The macaroons were fantastic! They were pricey but worth every bite. Think exquisite chocolates or fine wine :) Our favorites were salted caramel and lime basil. Enjoy!

I never made it to the Point G storefront, but I did purchase their excellent macrons twice while i was in town - once at a small gelato shop in Vieux Montreal and again at a stand at the market Jean Talon. I brought a six back home with me and was sorry i did not buy more. Yum.
