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!

3 1/2 star for food but nice restaurant and happening place

I was so excited to come back to this restaurant and have dinner. I came with my husband and brought my 11 year old. Kids are welcomed in the restaurant if you are in restaurant before 7pm for dinner, but really not a kids restaurant. Loud music, trendy crowd and lots of action. We started... read more

After recommendations to check out this "lively bar" for dinner from locals, we expected much more than a drab hotel Resturant with overpriced pub menu. Having been to Vieux Port several times and frequenting gasto-heavy havens such as Garde Manger, Le Bremner, Lawrence and Olive & Gourmande I was extremely disappointed. Being it was St. Paddy's day, you would think... More

I would like to thank you for sharing your experience with us. I have to admit that Old Port is not where St Paddy’s celebrations are the highest. It is indeed in another area of town that most people gather to celebrate this unique day. This being said, the team would be really proud to have you back during a... More

I had seen this place the previous winter. It seems to be always packed and dimly lit, and looked so quiet from the street that I thought this to be a consummate date place (which a lot of people think taking from the reviews, to my surprise). So as I was nearby the following summer I decided to give it... More

First, let me thank you for taking the time to share your comments with us, it is always appreciated. Indeed, Méchant Boeuf (Mean Beef) is louder and more crowded than the usual Bar-Brasserie. Especially during the weekends. After all, our name is our renown and for the past seven years we have successfully deliver the same atmosphere. But I can... More

Had a lovely evening dining in Mechant Boeuf on March 8, 2015. Our waiter, Alex Noel, was great and he really took well care of our dining needs. We speak no French, and he did a great job translating the specials, and when he didn't know something he would find out! We shared the charcuterie platter which was amazing! Lots... More

First things first, let me thank you for your great comments. The team always appreciate when their efforts are noticed, it means we did our job well! Also, language-wise, it is only normal to accommodate our clientele as much as we can. Especially in Old Port, where a fair share of the people are travelers, being able to share information...

I've been to that place many times and i always get an amazing service! The food was good and reasonably priced especially if you are a big group and you are getting the "table d'hote". Try to get Gabriel as a server!!

Amazing ambience, amazing food but amazing service. Mechant Boeuf waitress Sophie was helpful and always smiling. She helped us enjoy fully the Mechant Boeuf experience.
