Great service

Happy hour with coworkers. Nice outdoor patio. I tried the pink sagria, it was alright (good but not great). My Brazilian friend was disappointed with the Caipirinha (Brazilian drink). We were 8 people, we all took pintxos (snacks, 4 pieces of bread with spreads) because the waitress did such a... read more

After a poor experience elsewhere we came to the Boris Bistro with some trepidation - silly us. The outdoor setting was fabulous on a balmy evening - there is a building size terrace abutting the Restuarant proper with some shade cloth and trees planted everywhere, lots of space between the tables too. Our waiter Kevin was great, recommended a lovely... More

Dinner was good. Dessert was better. Seating was tight. Menu was abut limited but everything we got was really good. Brainteasers was a bit arrogant but this is Montreal

We visited Boris bistro while in Montreal by chance as walking done McGill rue the food was good, the staff friendly and very reasonably priced. We sat outside on a lovely July night.. The place was jumping and worth a visit.

If you are looking for a nice summer resto, you should try this place. The 'ambiance' is very cool, and the food is light and tasty but they have good portions.

My wife and I came here on a rainy Sunday for an early dinner, thinking the rain would spoil our plans to enjoy the terrace. We were pleasantly surprised that with canopy and umbrellas we were able to enjoy a nice dinner outside despite the light rain. Food quality was good, as was the service. We would return.

Great patio dining and a superb menu. Food was excellent, wine menu was extensive, and service was professional and courteous. Surroundings were picturesque and comfortable.

We went for lunch so maybe not the best meal of the day. The outdoor patio was beautiful and quite comfortable on a hot summer day, but the food was not at all exciting. We were four and none of us raved about our choice. They did have a very unique and tasty iced tea. The service was so.... slow....... More

We had dinner in this nice cool place in Montral in a big patio outdoor. It is located in Old Montreal area. The staff is nice and polite. We had as appetizer a good mushroom and cheese nem; then, as first course I had a tasty vegetarian square with roasted vegetable and a grilled salmon. As a dessert I had... More

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
