Couldn't be better

I take friends and family here whenever I attend a performance at the nearby Centaur theatre. Cozy ambience and attentive service. The menu is eclectic, featuring unusual meats. Servings are ample and the food is consistently delicious.

When we looked at the menu, we decided that we would definitely go there for lunch. The Café is located in Old Montreal, not far from Notre Dame Basilica. Décor is very nice. The building is very old. Lots of stone and wood. When we came around 2 p.m., it was only 3 couples there. So service was very friendly... More

I went in and said I was just dropping in for a beer and she said I had to order food. I had just finished a full lunch so I had no choice but to leave. One star for a cool name!

I adore this cozy romantic Polish restaurant in old Montreal where the kotlet schabowy tastes like southern friend country steak, so rich and comforting. The beautiful deep clear red beet borsch with a dollop of sour cream floating on top is exactly as my mother made and yet has been so hard to find over the decades as most restaurants... More

A eclectic cuisine amid a wash of excellent French restaurants gets attention first because it's different. The bohemian decor is interesting, service was adequate though not warm, and the food was decent but not great, unless you are a rabid kielbasa lover like one in our party. The price was not ridiculous which made this worth the try but not... More

was looking for a unique eatery in Old Town Montreal and decided to try Stash . the food was authentic and good. The thing that put this place over the top for me was the hearing piano versions of weezer, red hot chili peppers and nirvana while we ate.

This is literally the best Polish food I have ever had. The perogis were so good that I wanted to take some home, but was afraid to take them on the plane and through customs. :) The service and ambiance of this restaurant is also amazing. If you are in the Old Town of Montreal, definitely stop here for dinner.... More

I had read reviews of Stash on TripAdvisor, and since my husband's family is Polish, I thought it would be a good place to go on our first dinner in Old Montreal. It didn't disappoint! It is located several blocks beyond Place Jacques Cartier, the busiest part of the neighborhood. We were not in the hustle and bustle, but we... More

I just had some of the best Polish food here ever (don't tell my Grandma). We would highly recommend the pierogi, kielbasa, placki & golabki. Kids loved it too!

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
