Great food

The restaurant is among the best in Montreal. Maybe not so famous, and surely not as pricey. The food is great and very creative. The appetizers, the entree and the desert are all excelent. And you can also bring your own wine.

I hate eating at 9 pm, but the reputation of this place made me compromise. I sort of wish I hadn't. It was gone midnight by the time I left, and this is only really acceptable in Spain. The atmosphere and service is totally fine, and it's a nice looking little neighbourhood bistro. But the food is just not worth... More

The restaurant is ok, sure thing. But not as great has people say. The menu is boring, and uneven. But, I have seen way worst. It was our second visit, and both time I felt the same. Service is ok, but the waiter we had acted like a slacker. Thank god for the other waitress who took over. One good... More

What I thought it would be: a nice little BYOB with great food What I got: a nice little BYOB with a lack of taste in the food We went to Quartier Général an evening with a couple of friends. The restaurant rapidly got packed after our arrival and I have heard it's pretty much always full. The place looks... More

Celebrated my birthday here with my girlfriend and I must say I was impressed. The service was decent, the ambiance was cozy and the food was perfect. Definitely will go again. Do get a reservation because it is quite small. The table d'hôte was around 50$ and included 4 services (including desert), which isn't too expensive. It's BYOB so what... More

If you want to have a chance at a table, you need to make a reservation because this little gem is well known and for a good reason: everything is great. The service is polite and well done, the menu is always good and interesting, and you can bring your own wine. Please indulge yourself to a good bottle, it... More

We went last night. First of all we discovered that their 2 services per evening policy is every day. It is 6.30 to 9 and 9 until closing. Personally I hate this. Secondly, the Plateau which is the borough in which this restaurant is located has very limited parking, plus they do not appear to plow the streets of snow.... More

Love the atmosphere, very friendly staff always. This place is always packed which says a lot to me. I chose the lemon curd dessert once, which I would never normally opt for. I did it because the preceding dishes were so amazing that I knew a dessert I wouldn't normally like would blow me away at this place. It did!

We enjoyed the lamb and duck which came with a soup or salad. All of those items were excellent. We also enjoyed the scallops. The cheesecake dessert in a jar was pretty good. We thought the prices for the quality were very reasonable and we loved bringing our own wine without any corkage fee. Service here was the best we... More

I love Quartier Géneral, the place is hidden on a small street, they have only a few seatings with a fireplace, it's nice and cosy, the staff is awesome and smart to remember everything they have to tell you for each dish, it's really impressive. The food match everybody expectations at the table and a huge plus for the bring... 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.
