Nice place for french food

Is always pleasant to dinner there, good service, even the menu do not vary along the years it presents a good set of choices and a nice wine list. I do reccomend it.

Deliciously prepared French vitro food that we stumbled across just strolling through town. Solid traditional offerings as well as updated preparations. I had the fresh "duck confit lasagna" with super light pasta sheets prepared fresh in house. Steak and fries were nicely prepared as well. Reasonable prices with a short 20mim wait for lunch. Worth the trip!

I was really excited to finally try Au petit Extra. Four years ago we had a reception at the Lion D'or and the food was from Au petit Extra. It was really good but I was wondering if it was gonna be as good since it was not in the restaurant itself. I read a lot of good comments but... More

Au Petit Extra was a short Uber ride (about 2.5 km) from our Flipkey apartment at 699 Rue St Maurice in Old Montreal. It had a lively bistro atmosphere, widely spaced tables, and a very friendly staff. Our waitress was happy to chat with us in French or English and and she was very knowledgeable.The food was very good, possibly... More

Always ask locals recommendations and this was a wonderful tip! Charming, rustic setting with great service and an interesting menu. Nice wine list and you could get a carafe of wine if you wanted more than a glass, less than a bottle. I had the canard magret rare- perfection- and my companion the beef tartare- excellent, both with beautiful presentation.... More

Every time we go to Montreal (about every 2 months) we inevitably find our way to Au Petit Extra - rain, snow or shine, we often walk. We discovered this gem a number of years back and have renewed our acquaintance over the last year. The menu changes regularly and is posted both on a written menu and on a... More

I had the pleurotes (King mushrooms) in vinaigrette and the magret de canard (duck breast) both of which were excellent.

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.
