Great decor, okay service, okay food

This place is great for the decor but the food and service are just okay. Our food was good, but nothing special and a little pricey for what it is. Our waiter was slow but friendly. and the drinks, were you know drinks, nothing special. In all I don't know if we would go back.

My boyfriend and I mainly love going here for the atmosphere and the friendly staff. When you go in, the servers make you feel like you're just some friends coming in for some food. The seating and decor is really unique, it looks like someone travelled around mexico and south america and decorated with their keepsakes! I also love their... More

We waited an hour and a half before getting our food, and the place wasn't even busy. Tables around us kept getting served before us, and it's not like we ordered anything different. When we told the waitress after the meal that our food took forever to get here and that we weren't really happy, she actually said "well if... 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.
