Simple bistro dining that is sooooo worth it. The resto is celebrating its 30th anniversary and they are offering a $30 menu which includes: starter, main and dessert. Fabulous. A must have is the Lyoinnaise salad and the crème brûlée. If you like duck, you won't be disappointed. Service is... read more

This has been on our list of places to visit for along time and well... we should have gone earlier, when it was in it's heyday. What's there now seems sort of sad. The waiter was really on point, but the delivery was so dry as to make us feel a little unwelcome. The food was good except for some... More

Always a classical, one of the best French bistro in Montreal ! The imenu is on the black board, I love the confit salad, a great selection of wine and a friendly service. One of my favourite in Montreal!

We had our wedding at the Lion d'or which is the cabaret associated with the restaurant Au petit extra in may and I had to write them a review as they are possibly the most professional and attentive team that I have ever met ...and I've thrown a few parties and banquets for work. I have been there twice... once... More

A quiet, Parisian-style bistro, lit by a golden glow, with a high ceiling, plenty of space between tables, and window tables for two in alcoves a couple of steps up from the main floor, giving couples a sense of seclusion—if that sounds like your idea of the perfect setting for a romantic dinner, then Au Petit Extra may suit you...

Went there with friends for a late-night dinner - as always, staff was courteous and helpful. We had the"rôti de lotte", which was cooked to perfection and the scallops, which were delicious and beautifully presented. The potage du jour was cresson, and it was memorable.

This is my 4th time visiting this restaurant. Each time was "average" but certainly tolerable. This last time, everything about this place has deteriorated. We were a part of 4 and had made reservations. Each of us had been there before. Where to start? The service was HORRIBLE: unbearably slow and totally ignored by the waiters who were there. They...

The wine selection was great. The horse tartare was delicious. The service was quick and accommodating. Loved the oysters!!!!! It is my favourite meal, if anyone has cheap places for oysters to recommend do not hesitate. Parking was easy, nearby and washrooms very accessible and no stairs therefore easy access. Enjoy!!!!

It is a bit far from the main street and seems to be in a residential area. I can tell there are quite a few loyal customers in the restaurant. There is not English menu but the staff didn't mind to give us detailed explanation patiently. I have never experienced such creamy chicken liver in my life and the restaurant... More

I don't use to go to french restaurants because are too expenses for me or I don't know what to order. This time we were invited by a friend who is a frequent customer of Au Petit Extra and the experience was value. The menu is just one page and all it's dishes come with their recommended wine to pair.... More

Staying in The Village (Gay Village)

Neighborhood Profile
The Village (Gay Village)
The rainbow pillars of Beaudry Métro Station shepherd the way into to The Village, one of the largest hubs for gay and lesbian culture in North America. With an open layout and a congenial aura, the refurbished buildings along Rue Sainte-Catherine pay a special homage to menswear and to caffeine, with showrooms and cafes. By morning, the antiquing gems along Amherst Street are packed with collectors. An incredible party spot, The Village comes alive at night, when clubs, bars, and dance halls open their doors and the revelry is high, epitomized by the fanciful trimmings of the apropos Oscar Wilde building. From May to September, the area closes to automotive traffic, allowing restaurant terraces to pour onto the streets, creating a dynamic sense of community. Les Boules Roses, thousands of pink baubles, are hung to welcome in the festivals and celebrations, including Montréal en Arts, Divers-Cité, and the Pride Parade.
