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!

Great restaurant..group of 15

This was recommended to us by the Concierge at the hotel. We were impressed that they were able to take a reservation for 15 on short notice and on a Sunday. Made it in time for happy hour drinks. We also had a great meal..lots of variety to choose from. Loved the beet salad. Would definitely... read more

Nagano pork @ $26 bland & overpriced. Tough, tasteless & colorless as if it was pan-cooked on med-low heat. Served with unpleasantly spiced carrot purée and seasonless pieces of red pepper. Huge disappointment. I sent them an e-mail but did not receive a reply as yet. However the staff is friendly & helpful and the vibe is 'branché.

We had the MOST delicious meal here! It's pricey, but worth every penny. Every single morsel was sumptuous, even the foie gras we convinced my 18 year-old niece to try. The french onion soup is one of the best I have ever had. My husband had sirloin with gorgonzola sauce which was amazing and I had hanger steak with roasted... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel bartender--she was on mark when we asked her to recommend a restaurant where we could get a steak and also keep our tween children happy. Mechant Boeuf did not disappoint much at all, save a few menu quibbles (I would have given it 4.5 circles if I could!) The ambience was interesting; the... More

Wife and I came to Montreal and our concierge recommended this restaurant. It had the best Poutine and the service was outstanding. Jean was awesome he even managed to make my wife the orange margarita she wanted. We went back two more times for the food and drinks.

We were seated at a nice table, but could not stay because we couldn't hear each other or the waiter. An assault on the senses!

Méchant Bœuf, or Naughty Beef if you rather is indeed a festive Brasserie-Restaurant with lots of birthdays, bachelorettes, DJs, live Bands and a very lively bar space. Weekends can get noisier than week days. The team would be really happy if you would try back our place on an early week day, with a smoother soundscape. See you soon! More

My husband and I both had the steak. It was delicious. Decor is great, but the music doesn't seem to match (rock, pub-type music) and it is pretty noisy in the place. They did have some live music, which better suited the atmosphere. Friendly and efficient service. Would go back for the steak.

Stumbled on this restaurant by chance, great place. Food was good, service excellent and live music a bonus though maybe a tad loud. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and would eat here again.

Had reservations for dinner and thought the food, service, and atmosphere was just "ok". We had the burgers and felt they were fine, but nothing really special. Additionally the service was good, but not memorable - it was what you would expect at a restaurant. As a note, some comments indicated the music was too loud, but we thought 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.
