Yummy, yummy poutine. Who could rate this poorly? Sure, maybe your order won't be right one, and maybe they're a bit overworked to do be nice to you, but you're there for the poutine. :>

Poutine served 24/7 what's there to complain about?!? Great spot for late night eats or as a cure for a hangover at lunch. Many many many options to choose from, definitely something for everyone.

My friend was obsessed with trying Poutine. Me, not so much. We had the classic version and I was well pleased. Great local vibe.

Go there on a Saturday night, around 8 pm, and you are certain to be waiting a while (20 minutes and a lot more), probably even in the dead of winter. That alone should tell you the quality of the poutine, and how popular this place is. This place has a number of different student-like menu items (hotdogs, hamburgers, etc),... More

It is a place where you can find any type of poutine. Very rustic but good food. I went with my nieces and nephews aged 10 to 16 and they thought we were very cool to bring them to a place like this. It is very family oriented.

I guess poutines can't get much better than this. It's unhealthy and greasy, but that's what you expect when you go there. Great experience!

The decor of the restaurant itself is simple but it does the trick. They have a very large selection of poutines which is great as that is what most people would visit the restaurant for. The poutine itself was fresh, tasty, and a very good size. Our server was friendly and quite efficient. The only issue is that we thought... More

I lived in Canada for about a year and a half, and this for sure was the best Poutine that I ever had. In Toronto we didn't have places like this.

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
