Great food and full of flavour. You can bring your own wine. Decor is very tactfully done. The presentation of the food itself was a piece of art.

I literally stumbled into this restaurant on Friday Night, never having heard of it before. (The construction on the street outside the restaurant caused the stumbling). The crowd has a cool hipster feel to it. You can't make a reservation on line and so you'll have to call them to reserve (which I recommend). I started with the scallops and... More

Service felt rushed, food was thrown on the table, and we didn't even have time to finish one plate before being served another, server was very arrogant and snobbish, the food is very good but just not good enough to deal with this terrible service.

W were invited by some Montreal friends and it turned out to be the perfect place. Decor-wise, it is bistro-style with the advantage that you can bring your own wine. The menu is quite original and difficult to choose from the many interesting possibilities. There was an appetizer of cold red beet soup which was amazingly good. The venison was... More

This is not a restaurant we would have found or chosen but went on a recommendatioin. It was a great find. Staff were very friendly. It was a bit noisy. Ambiance is average. But the food is excellent! You have to bring your own wine but they provide a cooler if you need one. We would have gone back another... More

We ordered the 2 entrée specials of the day, bison tartar, and blood sausage+mushroom with foie gras mousse. For mains we both ordered the Magret de canard with extra foie gras. To begin with, they gave us free tomato gazpacho with roasted garlic and peppers. Delicious. The 2 entrees were both very good. I loved the chanterelle mushrooms and blood... More

O Thym has the feel of a modern Parisian bistro with its large windows, long room, high ceiling, white tablecloths, and blonde wooden chairs. The menu is written in French on a chalkboard mounted on the wall. Your pleasant and efficient server provides printed copies. Our server immediately realized we were monolingual and graciously explained each of the dishes on... More

On occasion, one’s experience of a restaurant is determined by external peculiarities beyond the staff’s control. Thus I think it mattered that we had dinner at Othym on one of the hottest days in recent history. Lacking air-conditioning, Othym sweltered, especially as the sun came blasting through the high windows right on to us (the summer sun sets really late... 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.
