This was my third visit at Stash Café and I was not disappointed. This time I brought my kids with me for a nice lunch. I knew this was going to be a great lunch as I immediately notice the ice tea was freshly made and did not come from a Nestle bottle for example! Everything is made in house... More

My wife and I wandered into this establishment entirely by accident this afternoon, and were nicely surprised. We had the pierogies and cabbage rolls and both were excellent. I'm still trying to figure out the spices in the cabbage rolls. Regardless, they had more meat than rice, didn't get drowned in the usual too strong tomato sauce, and were perfectly... More

This Polish restaurant is in the heart of downtown. The place is totally unpretentious but the service and food is very good. The waiters are particularly helpful. The beer is also another reason to visit. Stash is a good solid place to get a good meal at a fair price with good service.

Stash was a pleasant surprise. The food was carefully, expertly prepared with a delicious result. The soup of the day was mushroom. It had a plentiful amount of small mushroom pieces in a tasty broth. Both the Schmitzel and Stuffed Cabbage dinners were superb in taste revealing a caring preparation. The waitstaff was extremely friendly and attentive. The piano player... More

Went to dinner here my last night in Montreal during a conference. I wish I had found it sooner. Exceptional value, traditional Polish food at great prices. Also had the best vodka I have ever had in my life, something called Zubrowka. You won't walk out of this place hungry or broke.

We really enjoyed our food but the service was probably the worst we have experienced. We waited a long time to be seated even though we had reservations - no one even acknowledged us for at least five minutes even though many staff members walked by. Major delays to take our drink order(ordered dinner at the same time as we... More

I'm native from Poland so I was skeptical about trying polish food in Canada but was pleasently surprised. All of the dishes were delicious and tasted like authentic polish dishes. The prices are a little too high for my taste but being in a middle of old Montreal is probably a contributing factor. The ambience of the restaurant is very... More

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious meal here on a recent Sunday evening. I had the wild boar and he had the mixed plate which had a selection of delicious pierogi, potatoes and other assorted Polish standards. Both of our meals were just superb as was the service. There was a piano player that played a lot of pop... More

Our family has been to Stash many times, and for good reason. It has become our favourite, and a visit to Montreal is not complete without a return. Excellent Polish fare always satisfies our cravings for eastern European staples, like perogies, cabbage rolls, schnitzel and borscht. And make sure to save room for the sweet dessert crepes.
