Fabulous French Food!

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... read 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

This restaurant has a local clientele and a great vibe to it. It has that "tavern" feel so it can get quite noisy but folks are all having a great time, just not an intimate dinning experience. The appetizer we had the foie gras and the stuffed zucchini flowers were excellent. The catch of the day and the bison were... More

I've been to O'Thym 3-4 times, and always pleased with this place. Price range is very reasonable, food is always close to perfection, BYOW, and although I never felt on the same waiter, the service is always personal, friendly and attentive.

an up and comer. food is very good but needs a touch more finesse to be truly great. Service is OK but seem to be challenges with kitchen. 30 minutes between entrees & mains.

It's great, BOYB. Never tried deer meat before but it's great, very good indeed, no problem with it despite my mother has dentures . A must go place if you are visiting Montreal. I love the asparagus, so crispy and tensor. The scallop is fabulous but the catch of the day was exquisite. Very crowed and need to make reservation.... More

Picture this - a restaurant without a liquor license and everyone enjoying their favourite bottle of wine or a few brewskis - how can this be? Just bring your own. The food is quite delicious and the service is an A+. Just a block from the main thoroughfare, well worth the visit.

The place is small so reserve either for 7:00 or 9:00 pm.The street side table was perfect for this late friday night.The menu is... 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.
