A Montreal institution, great ice-creams, great choice of flavours. It would be perfect if service was a bit more congenial.

Okay, not cheap, let's get that out of the way. But it is worth it. The ice cream and sorbets are fantastic. I think this is the best ice cream to be had in Montreal. I am not overly adventurous when I go, vanilla, strawberry sorbet or tire d'erable. While I can understand some of the other reviews marking them... More

On March 25th 2014, we when to Bilboquet to get our favorite tire ice cream (tire d'erable ice cream), we were appalled with our experience. The ice cream seemed to have melted and re-frozen- it was flat. We asked if they had a problem with their freezer and an arrogant French woman told us: no, no no! Aucun probleme! We... More

Went there last night for some late night ice cream. After having a friend recommend it and seeing the many people inside and out with ice cream I assumed that I was about to have a delicious treat. But to me it seemed rather average. No special flavours, no special prices and no real flare. It wasn't terrible ice crea... More

We walk twice to this very good "icecream" parlor. All the flavors we taste were terrific but mention to the "tire de sirop d'erable" : it's the "top maple syrup" and they made an ice cream with some caramelised part of them and it's unforgettable. rasperry sorbet and chocolate are also topqyuality. The homemade ice tea is to try...

Even if you are not in the Outremont area, it is worth a visit especially now (early Spring) as you can get a taste of the decadent ``tire`` ice-scream. It is only there for a limited time and people line up outside for this treat. Not to be missed!

Good location for a great ice cream selection, by patient, there is always a line-up. And the coconut ice cream is to die for

One no longer has to go into the city for great icecream: the Pointe Claire Bilboquet is open year round, unlike its neighbour, the excellent but quite different Wild Willy's. Try the maple, rum/raisin or the awesome sorbets: litchi is excellent! The rare marron (chesnut) is good, but a bit too subtle.

Their ice-cream is the best in Montreal! Maybe ever! Try any flavour, you won't be disappointed. All fruit flavours taste like real fruits. Ice-creams are very creamy and not overly sugary.
