Great Polish Food

Coming from Toronto, we have all types of excellent cultural foods. We have been on the hunt for great polish food in Toronto, but had to come to Quebec to find it. We drove here and was glad to find that there is a lot of parking available in Old Montreal. The public parking in Montreal is clearly... read more

I cannot even begin to describe the amount of things our waitress got wrong. #1. We ordered "Tyskie" (Polish beer) ... twice ... waitress brought "Zywiec" both times and not until we brought this to her attention after the second time did she explain that that is the only beer they serve. #2. Waitress forgot (or misunderstood and did not... More

Stop in for a quick mid afternoon bite. Ordered perogies as appetizers.( 2 meat,2 cheese) Cheese perogies were much better then the meat ones. Meat ones tasted like they were stuffed with mush. My boyfriend ordered mushroom sausage soup that was a little bland.

This was my fourth or fifth trip to this restaurant over the past number of years and it is still great. Found this time that ordering and sharing mostly appetizers was a bit cheaper than the a la carte menu, but some of the dinners brought to other tables looked really good as well. In my original review I complained... More

What a great meal and experience in this lovely cafe in Old Montreal. It was cold over Easter weekend and this place warmed us right up with incredible potato pancakes, beet soup, polish sausage, sauerkraut and amazing potato salad. There was a fellow playing the piano that really added to the quaint ambiance. We enjoyed the meal and for $40.00... More

Lovely artistic cozy setting in chunky ancient granite building. Food is gourmet and traditional at the same time. Not at all like starchy pierogies at stereotypical Polish joints. Think along the lines of grandma's best cooking for the holidays using top quality ingredients and French techniques. Service was friendly and multi-lingual, and atmosphere was authentic, attracting locals, despite being central... More

Had supper here and was quite impressed. The potato cakes where quite delicious and the Hunter stew was excellent. The wife's pirogies where fabulous too. I'd recommend this to anyone.

This is a place I dream about returning to. Wonderful atmosphere - cheery red fabric shades on the lamps, rustic yet colorful tables and chairs. The sound is usually lively, but not too loud - and then there is the food! I don't have experience with any other Polish restaurants, but everything I have eaten here has been delicious. Try...

Hmmm. Do I give this four stars because it was a nice, authentic Polish restaurant with a lovely atmosphere and good service at a reasonable price or do I give it two/three because I realised that I don't really like Polish cuisine? I did enjoy my starter of pickled herring but the main course - a taster of four different... More

Quaint and filled with locals who love sauerkraut and Polish Dogs (Kielbasa). The locals love the Pierogi (dumplings), and the Golabki (Cabbage rolls) - This is what I ordered and was NOT disappointed- full of flavor! If my stomach was large enough I wanted to get the Bigos, a cabbage stew with roasted meats. Afterward, we shared the Apple cobbler... More

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.
