I always reserve a degree of skepticism when I look at the Trip Advisor Top 10 before going to a new place. This is based on the lists in places I know well where some local burger joint (not even an exceptional one, just a popular one) manages to get on the list, i.e., The Varsity is not a Top... More

I rarely award 5 stars, but on Friday night Les Deux Singes seduced them out of me … and a solid 5, not 4½! All in spite of the fact that I had braced myself to be disappointed, as we were not impressed on our previous visit over 2 years ago. That time, we found the food decent but unremarkable,... More

Everything was incredibly well seasoned, cooked and we had surprises throughout the meal. We had two appetizers, two main courses, three cocktails and a dessert for $150 (tip/tax included). Well worth it.

Put this place on your bucket list because this is one restaurant that you must experience before you leave this world. Every single detail was absolute perfection. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed every precious bite and sip. We just kept on uttering to each other over and over, "that was amazing". Pardon me if my review is redundant, but... More

Add our voices to the others who rave about this dining experience. My husband and I have dined in many fine restaurants but this was the most perfect experience we have ever had. It is a bit of a cab ride from the tourist area, but more than worth it. From the moment we stepped in to this tiny (8... More

This is how food should be. Les deux singes is unpretentious. It's slightly outside the main tourist areas on Rue St Viateur Quest but any visitor to Montreal should take the effort to visit this restaurant at least once. The restaurant is cozy with only about 8 tables inside plus seating for 8 more people at a bar which encloses... More

As you walk in to this tiny 8 table establishment you are greeted by your table carrying your name. This is the 1st in a series of pleasant surprises. The food is spectacular deserving to be not in this setting but on the Place Vendome in Paris or on the upper West side in New York. I started with the... More

My husband & I recently had dinner at Les Deux Singes de Montarvie and we were both completely blown away by our experience!!! Some restaurants really get the food right, some offer incredible service, while others shine at decor/ambience...this restaurant has perfected all elements that make a dining experience truly memorable. Their attention to detail was unparalleled and the food... More

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
