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!

My husband really enjoyed his Mechant Burger with Charleboix Poutine (had shredded beef on top & 2 kinds of cheese), while I had a very good glazed salmon.

Been here for a conference and visited the Mechant Boeuf meanwhile with some colleagues. The service and the design were excellent. My classic burger was good but not medium as ordered. We had a red wine from Argentina which was simply amazing and definitely worth the 55 dollars per bottle. The music was nice but far to loud to have... More

We could see this restaurant from our suite at Le St. Sulpice so decided to try it. Definitely a happening place. The food was good, great atmosphere, reasonably priced. Great bar and drinks. We enjoyed our dinner very much. You will need a reservation unless you go at 5 when they open.

I stayed at the Hotel Nelligan and really wanted to like this restaurant. However it was quite average. The staff were completely inattentive unlike the hotel staff. My burger was good but not exceptional. The braised pork poutine was not at all what we expected- our fault entirely. We did not realize that cheese curds come from spoiled milk which... More

Indeed, we have to admit that our bar section is very alive, especially on weekends. It is crowded, lively and festive. As for the restaurant floor, we receive, on weekends as well, many groups for birthdays and bachelorettes involving a couple of louder “Chears!” But we always try to keep the music level to a fair level.

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.

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.
