Ribs are amazing

We came for the ribs and they were amazingly good. The French fries are also great. The staff was friendly & the owner was attentive. A full service bar is provided and they serve a good size drink. Seating is available inside or on the terrace. We will return ..... soon.

Warm welcome, cosy and amazing food! I'm from Montreal and this is the cheapest place for the quality of food. 30$ for soup, calamari, duck and dessert.

Although a little cool, it was the first sunny day in a while, so we opted for the terrace. The staff were very welcoming and helped us make our choices. An appetizer of Calamari is always our benchmark for a restaurant. It's amazing how each restaurant makes it in their own way. The texture was perfect, the batter just right,... More

We had the great fortune of trying Le Rio on the first beautiful "summerlike" day of the year. So, it would have taken a great deal to mess it up. We sat outside on the terrace.

Was a bit sceptical about this being listed as the best restaurant in St Saveur, given the number and variety of restaurants in town. We tried it out anyway and weren't disappointed. Great atmosphere and food with escargot to die for. Two table d'hotes (full rack of ribs, filet mignon with shrimp) and drinks for just over $100. Homey atmosphere... More

I think these are now my favorite ribs in all of the Montreal area! Slightly sweet, zippy spice and very tender, but a bit too blackened if I got to control the cooking. The service was fabulous!!!

We were four adults and all ordered the ribs as part of the Table d'hote (fixed menu). For the price everything was very good. The service was pleasant, helpful and not intrusive. A good choice for a family dinner.
