We had read reviews of Les Deux Singes De Montarvie on Trip Advisor and decided to book it for our 25th wedding anniversary. We and our taxi driver thought we might have been at the wrong place as it is very unassuming in appearance. That is until the food arrives. The chefs are pure artists, We had the duck ravioli...

What a wonderful evening in every way. As previous diners have said we were greeted by name as we arrived and it was nice to see our name on a table set aside for us. The entire evening was like having dinner in somebody's home. Service was exceptional, relaxed, personable and friendly. Cocktails to start were outstanding....the Bloody Caesar exceptional... More

Okay. I've been to a lot of restaurants all over the world, and tonight I may have had the finest meal I have ever tasted. It was at a tiny place in Montreal called Les Deux Singes De Montarvie. I'm writing a blog on it tomorrow called, "Tiny Details of Perfection." The staff is gracious, attentive, but not overbearing. No... More

Everything about this restaurant was charming and wonderful. We had a large party and they were able to seat us, handled everyone's orders wonderfully, and, most importantly, the food (and cocktails, too) were outstanding. I had the pea soup with smoked ham as a starter, and it was out of this world. My main course was pork belly that was... More

This was one of the best meals I have ever eaten in my life. Every single bit was perfectly balanced for flavor. Each ingredient came through cleanly and complimented the other flavors on the plate. I honestly wished that the meal would never come to an end; it was that amazing. We had an amuse bouche of a salmon roll... More

We absolutely loved, loved this restaurant. The atmosphere was intimate but casual. The food was divine. Nada our server and one of the owners of the restaurant (and evidently one of the monkeys too!) was both beautiful and gracious. Thank you Nada! Everything was delicious, but the pork belly main course was true culinary genius. The mixture of texture and... More

We had a great evening at this place. I can see why it is so highly rated. It is very small and the service is great. The portions were a good size and the presentation was lovely. My favorite was the beet raviolis with jalapeño. For the flavors, presentation, and service this place is well worth the trip. The only... More

Had one of my best dining experiences here. Beet dumpling with braised beef was incredible. Pork bellies melt in your mouth good. The service was attentive but not invasive. The wine list was also very well organized with plenty of good choices. I will be back.
