AAA Angus Beef, a delicious raw bar, colorful cocktails, live music and the best burger in town-Mechant Boeuf delivers on all fronts. A 5a7 fixture, this Old Montreal hub adds a pinch of outlandishness to modern pub sensibilities. It's a fresh spin on post-work unwinding and late-night bites. Montreal's mischievous side never tasted so good!

We had a wonderful formal French dinner our first night in the old city and we're looking for a little more fun on our last night in town. Mechant Boeuf fit the bill.

Some times serendipity beats out the best laid plans! This restaurant was close to where we were staying but not on our list, The first place we tried there was at least a 90 minute wait; the second place was closed! As we were passing Mechant Boeuf we decided to give it a shot! We are glad we did; this... More

We had one of the best experience with the staff Chris. He knew what to propose, had impeccable timing as far as asking how the meal was, serving wine, accommodating our extra request, etc... and always with a smile. Made our day. Food was cooked to perfection, the way we asked for. A very enjoyable evening right downtown in the... More

We had a dinner reservation for 7 pm and were seated at a corner table next to the front window. We decided on the bison tartare and chevre with roasted beets for starters. Both were excellent. From the start, service was spot on even though at about 7:30 the music began and the restaurant filled up quickly. We decided on... More

I was staying at the Hotel Nelligan with a group for a conference, and we dined here on a Thursday night. The food and service were excellent. I had the hangar steak, and a brownie with ginger ice cream for dessert. The steak, fries, and veggies were awesome, as was the dessert. My main complaint is that the place was... More

It is nice to hear that your group enjoyed their meals and the service at Méchant Boeuf. Although having DJs is one of our many distinctive appeals, Méchant Boeuf is indeed not a club and therefore, we have advised our staff and DJs to not play the music as loud as they sometimes did previously. Hopefully, the team will get... More

Dined at Mechant Boeuf for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed myself. The hostess and waiters were friendly, warm and attentive. The food was delicious and nicely presented. The ambiance is great. Being in my mid 60's, I thought I would feel out of place as most of the restaurant's patrons are in their 30's and 40's; however, I had... More

I came with my boyfriend to catch a live Blues Band. It wasn't our main reason for coming here but it was a huge asset as we are both musicians ourselves. We were seated in respectable area where the music would be, and when the band canceled last minute we were offered complimentary shots! The food was great, but a... More

As someone who lives in Montreal, this restaurant has lost a lot of what it used to be. I don't quite understand what the need is to blast music so loud as of 9:30 that you can't hear what the person next to you is saying. It seems as though restaurants like this one who used to have AMAZING food,... More

First, let me thank you for sharing about your experience at Méchant Boeuf. Indeed, the music gets a little louder with the evening passing by, especially on weekends. And although the bar section is very in demand and popular, we are definitely not a Supper Club and we would never push our clientele to buy more alcohol. Of course, the... More

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
