Enjoyed a lovely lunch with friends. This is an iconic institution in Montreal but the owner has announced he will be closing down this year. The service is impeccable and the dining is truly fine dining. The owner greets everyone at their table and obviously has a number of repeat clients. Great place and it will be missed.

A good soup with very good stater and meal. Both the duck and osso buco were excellent. The only ordinary course was the coffee and desert (profiteroles). We have been there at other times when the deserts were exceptional. It goes without saying that the service was a notch above the norm. The wine list is appropriate with a well... More

We have been frequent diners at Le Mas des Oliviers for many years and have never been disappointed. The proprietor, Jacques, is so charming and manages to stop by every table to greet his patrons. The servers are friendly, knowledgable and helpful. Tuna is outstanding as is everything else on the menu. Love the desserts!

We went to the restaurant because of the good reviews in Trip Advisor. To start, it's not a '$' restaurant ( '$$$' I would say, don't expect to pay less than $100 for 2 people, and that if you don't drink alcohol), but there's no problem. Food was average, the service was terrible (very unpleasant waiter). Just half of the... More

We dug through reviews and actually picked this based on looking at the menu online as well as the walking distance from our hotel (we were worn out from walking for 7 hours) and what a fortuitous choice. We had to do an early dinner due to our extremely early departure the next day. Our waiter was very pleasant, very... More

We went it by chance close to the closing time of their kitchen because it was getting late and we immediately needed a place to eat and nurse our baby, who was getting hungry and fussy. Our server immediately brought a plate of carrot, raddish and something else and carrot turned out to be what the baby needed at that... More

Back at Le Mas des Oliviers for about our 10th visit. We come to Montreal annually for the Jazz festival and cycling. We wouldn't miss this restaurant. It has understated old world charm, professional waiters, beautifully presented dishes, and wonderful French cuisine. Their soups are especially tasty as are the desserts. A wide selection of entrees makes this a treat... More

First time visit to this terrific french restaurant. Worked very well for a pre-Bell Centre dinner. Service was attentive and efficient. Had the Arctic Char special which was outstanding.Menu has a very nice variety of fixed and a la carte options covering all of your favourite french dishes. Great patio and very nice selection of wines.

Food is really subpar. Cold stale bread and greasy tasteless food. The service was very good, but the decore and the overall feel of the place is one of a dated, tired and passé restaurant. Really nothing special I'm afraid.

I had the pleasure at eating at Le Mas Des Oliviers and it was a great experience. The service was excellent. The staff was very friendly and very attentive. I tried the duck in peppercorn sauce and it was cooked perfectly. I would for sure come back.

Thank Augusto A

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
