Run don't walk to this gem of a restaurant, before it closes its doors for the last time in early Oct 2016. Serving up wonderful lunch times and cozy dinners. You will be received by a warm, knowledgeable staff and will dine on French cuisine at its best. This certainly is a must do, if you are in Montreal in... More

The French Onion soup was AMAZING! I also tried their duck - it was something to die for. 5 stars. N

Here for years,soon to close. Food is spectacular. Dore amandine and cod with cognac sauce were wonderful. Service great. Wine list adequate. Ice cream puffs with chocolate an excellent dessert. Catch it before it closes for ever.

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

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.
