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!

Not so Mechant After All

In English this bar/restaurant's name means nasty or perhaps mean Bull. Turns out, it isn't a nasty place at all. We were walking around Old Montreal looking for somewhere to grab a late bite to eat and it caught our eye. It was the end of a long day and we weren't that hungry so we just ordered a... read more

My husband and I came here while we were visiting Montreal on our honeymoon. We were blown away by the quality of the food, and the outstanding staff/service. They gave us a perfect little table which happened to be next to a window. I ordered the Mechant Chicken...which BTW is an ENTIRE chicken...and it was outstanding. The presentation was so... More

4 of us went to this restaurant on a recommendation...we knew we were taking a chance without reservations but went anyway. Next table available was 9:30 p.m. so we decided to wait at the bar, ordered 2 bottles of wine and were quite happy. Table was ready at 9:45 p.m. The wine we ordered came to approximately $80 before taxes... More

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at Mechant Boeuf. After finishing off my "ginger cake sundae," I declared that it was one of my "top 5" dinners of all time. The oysters were paired with a unique apple-based sauce which worked wonderfully. I had the Bison Tartare with salad and frites - the portion was not overly generous,... More

After trying to find a place open late (after 10pm) and lively on a Sunday night was quite difficult. We stumbled upon Mechant Boeuf. We were kindly and enthusiastically greeted by the Manager Jeff. He quickly built a table for the 5 of us. We were served by the delightful server Julie. The food was spectacular. 3 of us shared... More

We showed up as a group of 13 guys, and to say that we were catered to would be an understatement. We were cordially seated during what seemed to be a very busy evening Saturday night service. We were then promptly asked for drinks and apps. Upon finding out that we wanted wine bottles, our server quickly contacted our Maitre... More

On occasion, we will splurge for a great bottle of wine. We had a Chateauneuf - du - Pape here, and it was suberb. It was a great compliment to the steak offered here, which most of our party of four indulged in. All perfectly cooked. We also shared the poutine which was yummy and could have been a meal... More

This place is situated just a block away from where we live. So my wife and I thoughts we'd give it a try. We arrived with no reservation on a Saturday night @ 6pm. The first thing the host tells us is that they are completely full. I take a look around and notice the place is 70% empty and... More

First, let me thank you for sharing. Indeed on weekends, most of our 1st service reservations are around 7pm and we are generally full by that time. At first sight, it may seems to walk-ins clients as an empty restaurant around 6 – 6h30pm. But believe me, as much as we dislike being unable to offer seats, we also dislike... More

Maybe we expected too much but it was just OK, nothing great. The restaurant was not crowded and the service was good. The food well presented and all tasted good, but the steaks were not as good as they could have been.

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.
