Finally! An awesome fish and chips!

Very good food and excellent beer list (taps are all good and pretty cheap). The Burgundy Lion house beer is tasty. Best fish and chips I've had in Montreal so far! Crispy, flaky but not greasy or heavy. We also got the ribs and slaw to start, the bangers and mash, toffee pudding, and... read more

The food was great - the company fantastic - the drinks divine. This is a very popular restaurant, but they got us in really fast. We really enjoyed our dinner and had a lot of fun.

This a great spot for food at anytime but I especially like Sunday brunch there. The food is great, not your usual egg joint, the service is fast and friendly especially given how busy it is, the atmosphere is loud and fun, it's very reasonably priced, and the football is always on, so what more could you ask for except...

Been going to Burgundy Lion for a couple of years and can't help but notice that the quality of the service there is worsening each year. We had to wait an hour for our table when the waiter told us it would be a 10 minutes wait. Had I known that I would've went somewhere else. It's not the wait... More

OK - so I know this is a pub, but the Burgundy Lion is so loud that it is impossible to carry on a conversation, (when it's busy, which seems like always), However, the food is excellent, so it is worth going for a meal if you can stand the noise.

It is always a fun at Burgundy Lion - this is a typical traditional English bar with big selection of beers and English-style foods including infamous fish and chips, which they make simply great... LUV this place and go there every time we want to go out without any particular goal.

Staying in Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)

Neighborhood Profile
Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialized Montreal, the factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have been renovated into homes, museums, and small businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge galleries and an ever-expanding network of restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the Atwater Market, where outdoor stalls sell fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat, street vendors have menus of hot fish and wine, and the indoor market offers chocolate, breads, and coffee beans. Dominated by the gentle waters of the Lachine Canal, Le Sud-Ouest is still very much an outdoor town, with a number of pedestrian-only bridges traversing the waters, bike paths along the canal with views of the Leisure Boats, and massive green spaces like Angrignon Park to stop for a picnic, or to play a sport.
