Small in size but big in charm and food, this restaurant is cosy with the open kitchen right in the dining room. The service is friendly though a bit slow during our visit and the food is simply delicious and inventive, with a bit of oriental influence. We had excellent veal, fish and bison tartar. The wine list is simple... More

Don't be turned off by the fact that this small restaurant is casual and looks like the local neighborhood hangout. The food at this restaurant was fantastic and the best of my 5 day trip to Montreal/Quebec City.

Would go back in a heartbeat! Went there one night on a whim. Saw it was placed first on TripAdvisor and said what the heck let's try it! The place is very small but intimate. The staff is very inviting, casual and attentive. I had the chicken heart paté to start which came with truffes. It was delicious! Then I... More

All of the reviews that you will find here are spot on! I'm so glad I stopped by. I highly recommend make a RESERVATION, as they are a very small shop. Where do I start? Everything was excellent from start to finish. The service was impeccable, friendly and informative. The baguette they served was hot and crunchy, and the butter... More

We (my gf and I) are regular customers. I bring there colleagues and there is no time that they do a mistake. Reservation system is perfect (we have just experienced a terrible Friday night unexpected cancellation at Manitoba), and service is as good as food. The lady coordinating the room is smart, sweet and careful. Never asking too much, never... More

This is a delightful surprise and on our `will be back` list for when we go to Montréal. The food, the exquisite presentation and the perfectly balanced service all earn top marks. Loved the fancy cocktail too. I could get into details but I don`t want to share any more!

I was so tempted to write a terrible review about "Les Deux Singes de Montarvie" because I honestly don't want anyone else to discover this amazing gem of gastronomical genius! But alas, I am forced to share my amazing experience at this quaint little bistro-style restaurant in the heart of the Mile End on St-Viateur St. in Montreal. First, the... More

The food was oustanding! I'm from NYC so I'm not easily impressed but these guys really know what they are doing. If you're looking for a scene with white table cloths this isn't your spot. If you want a party in your mouth with a true culinary experience then you must go. I recommend the pork belly appetizer as well... More

We were in Montreal on holiday and went to Les Deux Singes de Montarvie for a meal. We had a lovely evening with a fantastic waiter, gorgeous food and great cocktails. I mentioned I was wheat intolerant and they made up an Amuse Bush especially for me. Food was super. Definitely a must!
