We ate here two weeks ago and I am still thinking about it. Our meal was beyond delicious. The presentation was exceptional the plating spot on but that is not what made the difference. Gloria, our server, was unique in the positive way. She was full of energy, passion for the food, knowledge for every item on the menu and... More

Friendly, helpful and very attentive service, the best I have seen. But the menu is way overpriced for the quality of food. Go if you have an expense account and/or trying to impress.

This delicious restaurant is downtown Montreal. It is a bit expensive but it is worth it to taste good food. Personally, I prefer their small bistro tavern F on place des arts.

The good: - Fantastic seafood, particularly the fish (all of it) - Consistent food/service quality - Wait staff are very knowledgeable about their products The bad: - Nothing really bad to report.

Grilled calamari, fillet of salmon, whole dorade - all done to perfection. A very relaxed atmosphere, but very attentive service. The whole fish was very expertly deboned at the table. Well done all around.

When we arrived in Montreal, a cab driver took us from the airport to our hotel and he had recommended this hotel. He was from Portugal and told us that this restaurant had some of the most authentic Portuguese dishes in the city. We stopped in here for lunch during a day of shopping, and I could not stop talking... More

We ordered a lot of food. Everything was good, with the octopus appetizer being the best. The signature roasted sardines were OK, but not as good as we expected, given the reputation. A little pricey given portion size and flavor, but again, it was a good meal over all.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
