The service was spot on! If one waiter was busy the other one arrived right away, not too pushy. The food was amazing. The wine was great. The view of the old port was absolutely gorgeous in daylight for I went for lunch. I will definitely visit again. I do not recommend for a bug family just as friends or... More

I could have cooked what was proposed, I could barely understand the waiter in French or English and he poor water on my kids and myself. The service was slow once the food was finished and it was hard to get their attention for a second glass of water...

I never thought a restaurant within a museum would be as good as L'Arrivage. It's located within the Pointe A Calliere museum in Old Montreal. I had lunch there towards the end of the lunch time rush. I sat next to the window facing the river and the waterfront. It was a clear winterlike day and thus the view was... More

I was really amazed by the view of the restaurant. I loved the space, it is very simple and elegant at the same time. But what really astonished me was the quality of the food attached to an extremely good price, plus the service was very good and kind.

The cafe at Pointe-a-Calliere was a convenient spot to have lunch after finishing two exhibits and needing a break before viewing the Marco Polo exhibit. We visited on a beautiful sunny weekday in early September and were seated on the narrow balcony. The service was very good. Our waiter was friendly. Between his limited English and my limited French, we... More

This is the Pointe a Calliere museum restaurant. From here you have a view of the port. The food and service were very good. If you are visiting the museum and need a break from the exhibits this is a good choice.

If you have time for just one restaurant at lunch in Old Montreal, I strongly recommend you go here. Excellent 3 course meal, including coffee priced at around or even under 20 Canadian dollars! Better quality than other restaurants we tried and lower price - a great combination! We went twice. The menu changed but the high quality and good... More

Rated average because of limited menu, and language seemed to be an obstacle, otherwise would be 3.5 to 4 stars easily. We randomly saw the outdoor patio umbrellas from the street and decided to give it a try. Nice simple décor, great views. Okay staff. First waiter seemed like he wanted us to speak French, addressing us in French for... More

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
