Montreal has some of the best restaurents int he world, and Jardin nelson is probably one of the best in Montreal. Everything from the food to the atmosphere is amazing. There is something for every kind of taste. Even their pizza is incredible!

I go there at least once during the summer. The outside section is a gem to take a lite lunch and have a drink. Check for when the band plays. You can not have more central then that. After you can visit all the beautiful little shops or go walk near the St-Laurent River. You next to the IMAX cinema... More

Fantastic restaurant in Old Montréal. The food is good quality, service is great, and you simply cannot beat the ambience. In warmer weather months you have three options for seating: Patio seating on the square, private courtyard seating around back (at times with live music), and indoor seating. Wait times vary for each, but in warm weather, it is definitely... More

Typical tourist trap. Horrendous food. Nice place. Service is ok, not terribly friendly. They really got to do something with their food.

We ate in the open space behind the street, it gave a wondeful feeling of space and freshness, jazz duo playing made it an excellent setting. We only had an hour so just one cours but all four of us really enjoyed our choices. Good selection of excellent beers too! We were just unfortunate that our waitress seemed to go... More

This restaurant is located on the pedestrian mall in Old Town Montreal. There is seating indoors, on a veranda overlooking the pedestrian mall (for people watching), and they also have an outdoor garden area with live music. They obviously cater to the tourist crowd, but the food is better than average. Would recommend to other travelers.

The food at Jardin Nelson is good, although not extraordinary. However, if you want to watch a live jazz band, sitting outside in a beautiful internal courtyard appointed as a terrace in the Summer, this is the place to go in Montreal. Even if you see a lineup, it is well worth the wait.
