Delicious!

My husband and I were looking for a nice place to have dinner before a show at the Olympia and I came across O'Thym looking searching for options close to our hotel and the theatre. The website doesn't really do them justice, it's a lovely smallish restaurant with a nice atmosphere. The menu was... read more

Really interesting, original, and delicious creations. Small, so I expect reservations would be a good idea. Kind of a mom-and-pop business (?), and they deserve to be big news.

Our first visit . Inventive menu with incredible flavor combinations. Happy and hardworking servers though it was a little slow. We were in no hurry and as the place was packed on a Wednesday night , the chef must have been under pressure and still produced a wonderful experience. Perhaps it is like this every night so book your table.... More

This place is an absolute gem! The food is incredible and it's very affordable, especially if you're drinking alcohol as it is BYOB. I brought a bottle of White Burgundy and had a meal that was very tasty. This place is small and only had one server when we were there which actually added to its charm. Highly recommended.

My daughter and I came here on our last night of a Christmas visit to Montreal. The weather was icy cold and snowy but we got a warm welcome here. It's a BYOB place which is quite common in Montreal and helps to keep the cost down. For a cold Monday night between Christmas and New Year it was very... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant in April based on the great reviews and I was shocked. The food was super bland, the service was non existent and the desert was terrible. $7 for the smallest desert I've ever seen and it wasn't even good, it tasted so dry like it was made a week ago. If you want... More

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.

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.
