Great Local Eatery!

This is not a place I would have picked but it was convenient before we went on a night tour. We're so glad we came in. Our lady server was great about explaining the items. We'd never had the Quebecoise poutine. It was fabulous! The smoked meat spring rolls were so-so. Then we split a super combo... read more

Had to return after being at Dunn's 20 years ago! A lot has changed including their location... now located at same location as XXX massage parlour upstairs!! Not exactly a "family restaurant" in my opinion. Oh well... it was an experience and their Smoked Meat Sandwich is still the best!

Dunno is a low key deli, perfect for breakfasts, lunches and takeouts. The extensive menu brings back childhood memories . The salt beef and latkas were superb. 4 people shared 2 sandwiches and we were still stuffed. The menu included chicken soup and all the usual add ins The cheese cakes looked really good, but we didn't want to ruin... More

I am quiet certain that no where else will be able to compare to the flavor an tenderness of the meat in this Reuben. I will enjoy others but always compare it to theirs.

Staying in Centre Ville Montreal and dined here on my last night, since it was close to my hotel. The food was decent, my buddy and I ordered from the Grill with Cajun Chicken and the Honey Nut Crusted Salmon. The salmon was more of a highlight than the chicken and were happy with the experience, although would have been... More

I ate here twice with friends and all of us enjoyed the food, which is ample and tasty and very moderately priced. Others had the poutine with the local specialty smoked meat and it was steaming hot and tasty. Onion rings come in a side serve large enough to feed a horde. I had the petit combo sandwich both times... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
