Description: 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!

I had dinner here yesterday with a friend. We shared the braised pork poutine as an appetizer and it was delicious! I will definitely have the poutine again when I go back to Méchant Boeuf. The poutine was big for an appetizer (big enough to eat as a meal). For my main course, I had the filet mignon. It came... More

i brought my parents there for an early dinner and was very disappointed... the food was good but the service sucked. the music was so loud we couldn't even have a conversation. We asked the waiter if it was possible to lower the volume, he nodded but did nothing. It was around 7:30 and there were, us included, 3 tables,... More

Chose the hamburger and they did go trough the trouble of asking me how i wanted it. Said medium and got a small, burnt hamburger. Really, when you have beef in the restaurant... More

Food excellent. Beef a specialty. Portions are big, order accordingly. Nicely located amidst shops on an old street.

I went with my cousin from Toronto. Montreal restaurants are very reputable, specially in Toronto where food is kinda bland. We had burgers and they were good, the fries were good, thank god the prices are also "good" because had I paid much more, I would have been really disappointed. The food was good, not fantastic, just good. I also... More

We happened upon this as we walked around Old Montreal and it's at the non bistro end of the street. But it had a couple TripAdvisor recognition logos on the entry way. This helped simplify the choice. We got there at 6:30 (a little early for Montreal dining) but the place had about 20 people already. I'd highly recommend reservations... More
