We had a lovely anniversary dinner at Bonaparte. The service was impeccable: timely, competent, knowledgeable, all without being overbearing. Everything was done when it should be done without any intrusive "are you done with that?" Menu advice was helpful. The space was a comfortable and elegant oasis amid the buzz of Old Montreal. For an appetizer, my wife had 'the... More

I went there with a bachelor party and we were pretty loud and one guy was so obnoxious that I had to excuse his ignorance and ask him to shut up but the services was great dispite all of that. They were very attentive and on top of everything.

An excellent dinner with prefect service and wine. We had the tasting menu with great choices. The Dover Sole was perfect and when combined with the rest of the courses made for a night and dinner to remember.

The service and food was excellent. Order the tasting menu. It is well worth it, although the prefix dinner is a more affordable alternative. The tasting menu really gave us the full experience.

This is not a walk-in restaurant. Not particularly expensive for the quality of cuisine and service, but you will need a reservation. Two Fix-price offerings plus many a la carte selections available. Good wine list, and excellent bar. The mushroom ravioli first was spectacular as were the lamb chops. This is a must-do for Montreal. It is in Old Montreal,... More

I had the talapia which was beautiflly seasoned , with vegetables, rice , all had amazing flavours. My aunt had the... 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.
