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.

Always consistently good food and service. In Summer take advantage of the beautiful terrace but beare that on Thursdays and Fridays evening you will probably have to wait for about 20 minutes before you get a free table. Bon Appétit!!!

an excellent evening due to the meal and the band! A very different restaurant with an open roof, where you will feel incredible in wintertime as well as during summertime.

I had an extremely enjoyable lunch at Jardin Nelson on a hot summer afternoon. I dined in their undercover outdoor patio. The food was excellent and the service friendly and unobtrusive. I had an Asian main and a wonderful ice cream based desert. Highly recommended.

The hotel concierge recommended this restaurant for lunch as we toured the sights of Old Montreal. Without the recommendation to ask for seating in the garden in the rear of the restaurant, we would have missed the jazz combo and the beautiful flowers in planters covering the walls. Although the day was chilly, the heaters kept us quite comfortable. The... More
