Location and contact

Damas, an upscale Syrian restaurant located on Avenue Van Horne. You will be charmed by the Oriental decor and most impressed by their refined and rich cuisine. This modern but authentic gastronomy will make your mouth water with all their specialties starting from the fattouche, the appetizing mouth-melting lamb leg to the cherry kebab. The blend of aromas and the tasting of the delicious preparations will make the experience worthwhile.

3 days in Montreal and we finished at Damas after reading the tripadvisor reviews which were substantiated by locals. From beginning to end the experience at Damas was amazing. Exceptional food and service. Wish we were staying longer as we'd be eating at Damas again!

Cozy atmosphere, consistently great food! Wide menu selection. With Montreal having plenty of middle-eastern restaurants, this is a standout and a notch up from the rest. Probably the best middle-eastern restaurant we've been to in Montreal.

Outremont, a quaint residential district just north of
Downtown, is a peaceful, low-key setting known for its
mod cafes and bistros, and some of the best walking
territory Montreal has to offer. Visitors can explore
the flowering parks and manor estates of Maplewood
Street, then window-shop the popular bakeries and
coffeehouses on main arteries of Chemin de la
Côte-Sainte-Catherine and Rue Van Horne. The modern

You would want to dress nicely because it is a pretty restaurant with wonderful food, but it is not a fussy place and you can wear whatever pleases you whether it’s jeans or more dress up.
