Great vibe, great tapas

Funky place not too far from our hotel in Old Montreal (by cab). Great selection of tapas with several daily specials. The waitstaff helped us make our selections and we ended up with just the right amount of food, pleasantly fully, not overstuffed. The dishes arrived well paced, and we had a... read more

It looks closed now. Graffiti on Windows Etc. Visited on one of their open days. Shame, sounded interesting. Will remember to check most recent review next time.

Dear JohnBob25, On May 13th, we were affected by a fire produced on the building where the restaurant is located, and since then the restaurant has been closed. We are working hard to find a new place and reopen as soon as possible and keep our clients aware about the situation, and we are sorry we could not let you... More

Great little restaurant run by friendly couple and their friends - it feels like you are invited to someone's home. Located in east Montreal on Roy East, off St. Denis. Cozy tables, perfect for a romantic rendezvous or just a great sampling meal with a good friend or two. I love tapas because you get to try so many different... More

It was our second time at Pintxo and we were wondering why took us so long to come back. We shared 7 dishes and they were all great from the marinated sardine to the stuff fig. All carefully done and well seasoned. The cocktails were also great. The flow of plates coming our way was perfect and at no time... More

We were back after a few years and with no particular reason for such a long delay, the previous experience was excellent. It was a snowy day with the streets half obstructed with snow and parking a little scarce. Still, it wa as we remembered it, small, cosy and friendly. Menu was varied and the waitress patiently answered all of... More

This is a lovely place for a romantic date as the small tapas type plates are made to be shared (although each could easily be eaten by one). You can choose to have a package of a few pintxos chosen by the chef followed by your choice of main course or may choose about 8 to 10 pintxos to share... More

Pintxo delivers a memorably evening / a delicious culinary night out! We were three guys traveling to Montreal on business and we had 10 different plates. If you especially want any single tapas, make sure to order two of the same dish, each small plate serves two people. The service was attentive, informative but did not hover. Might be the... More

Our host Albert at Le Relais Lyonnais recommended this delightful restaurant just north of Sherbrooke. We had travelled all day and wanted a restaurant within walking distance, with smaller portions. Tapas is always good but perfect that night. A large but well-planned menu, ranging from vegetarian to fish and meat. We were not familiar with the Spanish wines and asked... More

I planned to go to this restaurant for some time. It was on the top of my list. Spanish (Bascque) tapas, great reviews. When I saw it on the list of MTL à TABLE I jumped - we have to go. MTL à TABLE has three price categories. Pintxo was at the highest - alongside with Chez L'Épicier, Chez Queux,... More

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
