Huge meals, great vibe, lame margaritas

This tiny little restaurant on the corner of St. Laurent and Sherbrooke is a landmark for students and partygoers on the street, yet we had never been after almost a year in Montreal.

This is a regular stop for us when in Montreal! It's a tiny little corner restaurant, not many tables. The food is simple and delicious. You have to try it!

The food at this place was incredible. Service is slow with only one server when we were there, but holy smokes the food is worth it. True Mexican food. The soups are so fabulous I could have had that for the meal. The flour tortillas were fresh made and the food was top notch. If you are in a hurry,... More

We visited this restaurant last year during Grand Prix week and we quite enjoyed it, so we tried it again this year. We went on a Tuesday night and the place was empty when we first arrived. In spite of this, the service was very slow. They had only one waitress on staff and she also seemed to be making... More

The worst Mexican we've ever had, attempting to rival McDonald's for lack of quality and excess of grease, which tasted as though it were scraped off a sewage pipe. The steak burrito was a wrap with stewed beef swimming in cheese and sourcream, which came for $13.50. To be fair, it came with a side salad, which was nice. The... More

If you want authentic Mexican food you have to try this place. Very friendly staff and the food is amazing. I've tried a lot of places and this place beats all of them! I had this plate called Cochinita and my husband had the Pastor I can easily say it's the best. It's a small but very cosy place so... More

I know. Eating Mexican food in Canada. There are so many restaurants in Montreal, serving traditional Quebec food. Why even try to get Mexican food in Montreal? But on this trip we had two 14 year old boys and a teenage daughter, so we were looking for something we knew they would eat. Mexican It was a blisteringly cold Friday... More

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
