The Matter of Cabbage...

Cozy and old-mansion like, I always cherished my visits here and made a point to have at least one dinner at this place every time I was in Montreal. Never crowded, quiet and relaxing, last time I was there, the choice I picked met my culinary expectations one more time. However, on each visit I... read more

Stash in Vieux Montreal is a very nice place. It serves traditional Polish food. The service was attentive and friendly. It's a bit of the main streets, and mostly frequented by local residents or office workers. Favorite Dish: We had Golabki and Pierogi.

Polish food cooked just like my mother would!! We have dined here a few years ago and this second visit was just as good as my memory expected! The decor is pretty, the ambiance relaxing, wait staff friendly and food delicious. What more could you want?? More room in your stomach for dessert!!!

Writing this review with large amount of guilt ! Not because I almost ordered their whole menu ! Because after all the years they have been in Montreal I just discovered them ! Their food is extraordinary and a true authentic Polish... I am far from being a Polish however my work has exposed me to rural areas of Poland... More

After having a few evenings of fancy french cuisine we decided to opt for something a little more on the comfort side. My husband is part Polish part Ukranian so this seemed like a good choice for him. We were seated promptly despite the face we had no reservations. The restaurant is not large but it was quite busy.

I had the urge to title this as "Great Polish Food in Old Montreal" but it deserves better - it is simply a great restaurant of any type. A simple meal of potato pancakes, potato and cheese pierogi and cheap beer, what else so you want? How about Great music on an old slightly-out-of-tune piano? Highly recommended!

We have frequented this restaurant dozens of times over the years and rarely been disappointed with the overall atmosphere, service, and food. However today was an exception and mostly because of the attitude of the staff and one server in particular. From the time we entered to our departure, our server (she) was extremely unfriendly, difficult to query, and unable... More

Unique atmospheric restaurant with excellent Polish food. I am not Polish but based on the atmosphere and history of restaurant I assume it is authentic. Either way it was a great experience certainly felt I stepped back in time

Whether you are familiar with Polish food or not, there is something here for everyone. Delicious cabbage rolls, great service in Old Montreal. Try the light and airy chocolate cake for dessert.

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.
