We had a very good dinner for 2 couples and our choices were varied. The food was excellent; however the description of the entrees and main dishes was too much sophisticated. A way, may be to “epater les bourgeois” as they say in French. Music was loud, we were close to the speakers, probably and we asked several times to... More

I agree that this restaurant has good food but really, is it comparable to Europea, Toque or La Chronique? Is it THE best Montreal restaurant? I think not. The atmosphere is noisy, small, lower end. Think old tables, no tablecloth. Not the classy restaurant that you go to celebrate a special event or if you enjoy being pampered by attention... More

I'm wary of rave reviews on Tripadvisor as I suspect we get carried away by our enthusiasm - but it was the rave reviews that drew me to Les Deux Singes in the first place and now I'm going to add to them! The first words that came to mind were 'classy, informal, quirky, unique' and that's just as you... More

This tiny gem is amazing. Bohemian in decor, creative in cuisine. I had the most beautiful and delicious vegetable entree...the favors were complex and amazing. Our waiter told us that the same 5 people work all the time. If you want to see the chef create, sit at the "counter." We will next time! Best value for quality meal we... More

This is one of the best restaurants I can ever remember eating in. It has great atmosphere,great service and food to die for. The restaurant is located in the suburbs of Montreal in an old and cosy building with an open kitchen and seats about 20 to 30 so you have to book really early to get a table. We... More

Truly, one of my husbands and my most special dining experiences. The ambiance, the food, the energy, the service - all a cut above the rest. This is a small restaurant, with about 10 tables and also reservation only bar seats where lucky ones get to watch the talented Chef's prepare your meal with unbelievable care and precision. Words will... More

Beautifully prepared cuisine. Great service, nice wine choices. Be sure to make a reservation. This small restaurant lives up to its reviews. Loved the caramelized endive salad, duck ravioli, pork belly, and veal in Roquefort sauce. Cleaned our plates with the bread.

This is a nice place to dine, cozy ambiente, very good food and friendly service. Two things, which are not to be understood as critizism: 1. The kitchen is open so be prepered that your clothes and hair will smell accordingly. 2. At the time I write this review, les deux singes is the Nr. 1 restaurant on Tripadvisor for... More
