Very nice, chilled back district. Reminded me of student neighbourhoods in Europe. It has nice bars and restaurants and a very laid back feel to it. Just walk around, look at the different buildings, stop for drinks or coffee.

Mont-Royal is a nice neighborhood to spend a lazy afternoon. If planning to bike there, keep in mind that going up is a little steep and could be challenging.

Well worth the bus ride and the walk to the belvedere. A fantastic view of Montreal. A beautiful park to walk around as well. A very cheap outing all you need is money for the bus fare

As a tourist, I always enjoy visiting the places where the residents live. Plateau Mont-Royal is one of the most lively residential place where you will find restaurants, bars, shopping - "Une vie de quartier"

To the East of Mount Royal from which Montreal gets its name. An old, working-class Quebecois quarter became gentrified and hospitable to quirky, artistic types, plus a lot of French immigrants. There is actually a cheeky song written about it--"Y'a trop de francais sur le Plateau." ('There are too many French people in the Plateau"--written by a Frenchman, no less)... More

We walked through this area after coming down from the top of Mount Royal. Parc La Fontaine is an 84-acre urban park, located in the Le-Plateau-Mont-Royal neighborhood of Montreal. This is one of Montreal’s larger parks with a body of water in the center. There is plenty of open space for a picnic and there are paths to jog, bike... More

I lived here for 10 years and loved it. I rent an AirBnB when I return to Montreal and am in the area. There is every type of specialty boutique here. From croissant to bagels, to cheese to seafood. There is a specialty store for everything and all in walking distance especially around St. Laurent Blvd. It's gentrifying and losing... More

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
