We were guided here for vegetarian food. There were many options, all tasty (caution: one large nacho plate is a meal for two people!). This is a loud, anglo experience. We did not hear French spoken and after having just spent six weeks in France, we were shocked by the noise level. That said, it is a fun, friendly and... More

we were 3 and we shared 5 different tapas dishes. Overall we enjoyed them all, but the ones that stood out were the grilled calamari and the potatoes in smoked paprika sauce. It was Saturday night and it got pretty loud due to the concert space upstairs but that is also part of the charm of the place. It is... More

Three of us went to this restaurant which serves Spanish dishes. One had the vegetarian paella and two shared the carrot & arugula salad and seafood paella. Each dish was excellent in flavor and appearance. The mango/cumin dressing on the carrot/arugula salad was tasty & lightly applied. The vegetarian paella had an assortment of vegetables and was made and tasted... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Montreal and I go as often as I can. The restaurant is situated in a Spanish Community center which lends to the charm of Sala Rosa. The decor and the food aren't overdone and the prices are reasonable compared to some other tapas restaurants I have been to. Two things I recommend... More

I don't dislike La Sala Rosa, but there is nothing to write home about. We tried the fried goat cheese with honey. It was innovative indeed. However the portion was too small. And after all, it was still honey+cheese. It did not taste as well as it sounded or looked. Fried kalamari was good but not really worth its price.... More

Last year, the food at Sala wasn't great, expecially the paella. This time around, our group simply adored the meal. We ordered quite a few tapas and left happy and full. Service, as always, is excellent. Just be warned though, on Friday and Saturday nights, the place is packed and quite loud. But you don't notice so much after the... More

Hidden away in an industrial looking building on St. Laurent - you might find a group of elderly Spaniards playing cards in the corner and munching on fried calamari. This was once a private Spanish club and it serves great tapas at reasonable prices. Go with a group of friends, share some wine or sangria and enjoy the variety -... More

I've seen many great bands there, always had a good time. This place reminds me of my elementary school gym -square with a stage at the back. The beer's not too expensive and the sound is decent. My only 'oh darn' about this place is that it is not wheelchair accessible - it is high up a long flight of... More

We went as a group of seven to celebrate a birthday. La Sala Rosa was chosen based on its menu and the reviews. The atmosphere was nice and almost cozy, a quite small restaurant area with a beautiful bar area. All tables were occupied, and our waitress seemed very overwhelmed. We waited for two beers for almost half an hour.... More

Went on Flamenco night, great music and dance but only lasted 30 minutes. Because of crowd, waited 25 minutes for waiter to notice us. Although we came over an hour before the flamenco, wound up having to eat during the show. My dinner came eventually, well over an hour after we entered, wife, whose dinner was less complex waited another... More
