Had a little bad start as we had reservation at 19:30 and arrived on time, but no table available, we gad to wait 15 min to get ours. They don't have a children menu, but advice is to take 2 appetizers, potato pancakes and dumplings. To prep your children they don't serve ketchup, only sour-creme. I took the cabbage, really...

Our dinner bill was $30 w tip. I had the potato pancakes, hubby the mixed pierogi. I had ordered the regular order of 4 large pancakes, and could only eat two...hubby finished his dinner and half mine. Quick service, even tho place was full. We had to wait half hr for table....you might want to make a reservation.

Stash Cafe was great. This was our family's first time eating at a Polish restaurant and we loved it! The Placki(potato pancakes) to start were delicious. For the meal we decided to all share our meals so that we could all try different things. What I knew of polish foods did not disappoint as the Pierogi was amazing and the... More

My Polish wife yearned to try Stash since she caught a review of it while we drive across Quebec on a family holiday. Stash did not disappoint! Located in quaint Old Montreal, Stash offers wonderfully authentic and delicious food. A bit pricey, but all of the dishes (zhurek, cold borscht, pierogis, stuffed cabbage) were absolutely scrumptious. We only wished we... More

When you enter Stash Cafe, the atmosphere is at once is cozy and familiar. Maybe it's the smells. Oh the smells! Like being in your mom's or grandma's house while she's cooking something delicious, you just want to pull up a chair and have a taste and stay for food and fellowship. Some options are herring salad, Halupki (stuffed cabbage),... More

This was a terrific find. I'd never been to a Polish restaurant before and this was excellent in all ways. The food was terrific (we had the table d'hôtel menu which had a selection dish so you could try everything). The service was good, the decor and ambience spot on. We weren't too close to the piano either so that... More

I wasn't looking for anything too upscale, wild and wooly and Stash's turned out to be exactly what I was looking for. Who wouldathunk there'd be a Polish Restaurant in Old Montreal!?!? I had the wild boar which was done to perfection. Do yourself a flavor and give Stash's a try.

We had dinner here on our first night in Montreal on 7/23/14. The friends we were travelling with were Polish, and so we thought they might find this fun. Stash Cafe is wonderful. The service was excellent and friendly, the atmosphere is comfortable and the menu interesting. We were a party of five, and eating early by Montreal standards, We... More

Warm and comforting describes both the food and atmosphere. The restaurant is in the old section of Montreal. It has stone walls, wooden beams and large deep-set windows. The food is wonderful. On my latest visit I had the chicken livers and onions which came with a side a cucumbers in sour cream and dill. The staff is always polite... More

Loved this place. Had a great dinner and it was very authentic Polish food. Had the Kielbasa and the Placki (potato pancakes with sour cream and apple sauce). Yum! The kitchen took a bit of time to get our meals up, but it was busy and we did have a few beers to keep us satisfied while we waited. Not... More
