Bocata is a small restaurant that delivers big! My husband and I ate here our first night in Montreal and ended up going back to their sister restaurant our last night because we loved it so much. We had a special salad with duck confit and a fried egg. The salad was one of the best things I have ever... More

We had dinner reservations, but weren't very hungry, so opted to sit at the bar and have a drink and oysters only. They kindly cancelled our reservation and let us do this. The bartender was very friendly and service was quick. And, the oysters were delicious! I'm sorry we missed out on a full meal because the food looked wonderful... More

Thanks for your feedback! It is the unfortunate reality that due to our particular alcohol license we are not permitted to serve alcohol unless accompanied by food...luckily there are great things to be had on the menu! We are glad you enjoyed your experience and will be more than happy to host you again! More

This place was our first stop in Canada while starting our 20th marriage anniversary. We choose the Bocata as the outlook made it pretend to be a high cuisine with interesting plates around lobster preparation. Very sadly were the plates nearly empty, way overpriced and the wines were just out of any standards that I had been used to. I... More

The ambiance, food and wine are perfectly balanced. This tiny restaurant ( +- 45 capacity) was well organised with a warm ambiance ( Old Europe Style) and the food was delicious. I felt like I was in Europe again. We highly recommend the Duck confit salad with truffle oil ( excellent), and the Pata Negra ( sold by KG). (... More

My husband and i have come back into town for a conference and really looked forward to having our favourites of about 8 months ago . We were disappointed that they changed the preparation of their burrata and their bourguignon braised beef . Although we were let down by the change ... the new preparation was good and the foundation/quality... More

Great location in an old style building provides a great place for dining. The food is delicious and well-priced. Try the fried smelts with lemon.

We are indeed lucky to be housed in a bi-centennial building in the heart of Old Montreal...The original stone walls and wooden beams add a great deal of charm to the place. Being also very committed to providing delicious food to all our guests, we are most happy to hear you enjoyed your meal! Looking forward to seeing you again. More
