Nice and hipster

The atmosphere was super hipster, but that's not a bad thing. We really enjoyed it. The food was pricey, but it was good. I would go back for a glass of wine and a shared appetizer, but I'd probably go elsewhere for dinner.

In Montreal for a meeting and a colleague recommend Bocata restaurant. It was an outstanding recommendation. My wife flew into Montreal to join me for dinner and we had a fantastic meal, superior service and fresh delicious food. The staff was very knowledgeable about the food and wine and the chef accommodated our request for no shell food or pork... More

Lovely decorated tapas bar and restaurant. Fantastic service the waitress helped us pick our drinks and food giving great detail into what each item was made of and how it was cooked. The only draw back for me would be the price which I would have found quite expensive if I was here for a personal dinner.

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 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
