Amazing restaurant and very non-touristy, but still welcoming towards out of towners. Our family is from Chicago and for being a bunch of food snoobs, this restaurant met all expectations. Would recommend the pork chop, which was perfectly cooked and seasoned. Plus, the outdoor terrace was a nice touch.

Very nice setting as many have noted. The shady and tree filled terrace is quite nice. We met a business colleague for lunch and this is very popular wih the business crowd. The service was quick yet did not make us feel rushed. I had the lamb which was served with a grated cauliflower and mango and tsatziki. My husband... More

A chance visit, we were looking for a different place and stumbled onto BB. It was very busy but the staff got us a very nice table in the courtyard. Service was friendly and efficient, drinks arrived promptly, followed by very good food. Casual dining but overall experience was very good and would definitely be back when next in Montreal.

Recommended by our concierge, we found the restaurant easily and had to wait an hour for a table because we had no reservation. We came back an hour later and were seated in 5 minutes. The outdoor setting was beautiful. My vegan wife thoroughly enjoyed her vegan meal especially because it was well balanced nutritionally. I enjoyed the sea bass... More

We asked the concierge at the hotel for a suggestion, and this was one of them. We gave it a try, and were not disappointed. The service was excellent, and the food was delicious. I highly recommend the sangria (perfect for a warm summer evening!) and the tuna. Hope to be back soon!

We stopped here for Sangria on our way to eat somewhere else. I think we would have enjoyed this place too. It's in a courtyard like Jardin Nelson. The atmosphere is great. The sangria is a little different but it grew on us. We had olives and some of the best French fries as snackers. This is a place to... More

Thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful lunch in this charming restaurant. Amazing terrace area. We walked past one evening and there was such a buzz we felt drawn to go back for lunch the next day. Great menu, great choice, attentive staff who were happy to serve the local business people at speed but equally allowed us to people watch in-between courses.... More

We were looking for an outdoor seating experience and our concierge at Le Petit Hotel made this reservation for us. The outdoor area was nice, although the table was so wide that we had a hard time hearing each other. At first the service was sketchy--they seemed uncertain who would waiting on us; but once that was settled, things went... More
