It was a very pleasant surprise. The staff was extremely pleasant. The food excellent. The terrace comfortable. The inside very well decorated. Great atmosphere. LOTS of people, very busy. On Amherts street part of the Montreal Gay Village but I must also ad that it has nothing to do with the Gay Village.

The owners or possibly management, were pleasant and helpful. The fajitas had a funny taste to them, I'm not sure what it was. And the chicken with the chocolate added, was so terrible I couldn't even have a second bite. I was very disappointed because I love Mexican. The location and the atmosphere was nice. I wasn't the only one... More

We went there to celebrate one of my friend's birthday. People working there are friendly, and I really liked the atmosphere. They also sell some Mexican products, which is great in fact because I bought some delicious Mexican chocolate! The food was average. I asked for mango avocado salad, and it was a very simple starter. Then frijoles, vegetarian ones.... More

Authentic Mexican food in the heart of Montreal's Village. The mole chicken was sensational with just a bit of spicy hotness.

My cousin and I visited Chipotle et Jalapeño on a rainy Thursday evening May 22. My cousin has toured the world as a guide and has eaten Springbok in South Africa and Piri Piri in Portugal, and I am a classically trained chef. We came to Montreal to visit each other and enjoy the food. This restaurant however was far... More

I used to go to Jalapeño et Chipotle only to buy groceries however a couple of friends recommended me the food. I've tried the tortilla soup, the melted cheese with chorizo and they both were very good. This morning I tired the tamales (mole and green salsa) and the sopes (chicken and pork) and boy were they good, specially the... More

Interesting selection of dishes and nicely prepared but many other considerations. We ate here on a Saturday night and took about 20 minutes to find parking. If you can't get to the restaurant by metro or walking, I don't believe it's worth the effort. The guests were all seated in the lower level which has no atmosphere whatsoever. Even some... More

One of my classics, I always get the "chilaquiles verdes" brunch. Comes with a small fruit salad, juice, more-than-decent filter coffee, very honest value for the price. Always served with a smile by the waiter/owner. Highly recommended if you've had enough of the typical brunch!

This is a small cafe & restaurant in the Village district. The staff at the time only spoke French (which should be expected in Quebec). I had the lunch special which was a tortilla soup and a chicken stew with rice and hot homade French bread. It was not spicy and flavorful. The staff were very nice and did their... More
