Luckily we were strolling around Old Montreal and happened upon this place and boy are we glad we did. There's a regular looking restaurant at the front but if you go along the side, there's a whole hidden garden patio area with a live jazz trio. It is well sheltered and heated - you forget you're outside. They have a... More

I went twice to Jardin Nelson and both times the experience was very good. On sunny evenings there is a bit of a wait to get seated but the atmosphere more than compensates this. The last time we were in a big group and they do ask that half of the group is present before you get your table. The... More

If you want a nice place to sip a drink and enjoy the atmosphere and great garden, then you're in for a nice treat! If you want good food... Not the place to be! I paid 20 something$$ for a crepe filled with béchamel sauce and bla mushrooms ++ So apart for a drink and a nice terrace, I wouldn't... More

Everything about this restaurant is incredible. Everything. We went back a second time b/c it's so unique and pleasant. Sit in the back terrasse! It's unbelievable! Plans and flowers everywhere. The food is excellent, too. Try the bruschetta!

We had a very enjoyable brunch at the Jardin Nelson. Our table was in the courtyard and the ambiance was wonderful. We were a large group so we had two tables up on a balcony/terrace, where we were alone and therefore able to chat and enjoy ourselves without worrying about disturbing the other diners. The food was delicious. Most of... More

The setting of this outdoor/indoor place is very unusual, appealing and charming, with a live tree dominating the space. The service was average, but the food was just not good enough. The crepes, which are the specialty of this place, were tasteless, regardless the fillings. For what they were, they were far too overpriced. Every other creperie in Montreal can... More

I tried this restaurant only because I read it had the nicest terrace in Montreal. Well it was beautiful indeed, perhaps not the best in Montreal since it's a courtyard and there is no view of the Old Port or its surroundings. It can get crowded in summer. Then again crowds are what a lot of people are looking for,... More

Very nice place to eat. The wait time wasn't too long, the food was great and the jazz music was nice to listen too.

Favorite spot for me when showing my visitors Old Montreal. Friendly, casual atmosphere with good service and reasonable prices from a wide-ranging menu. The jazz trio offers an unobtrusive bonus to the experience.
