Our group of four couples enjoyed a dinner here and were well served with good French food. Atmosphere was great and as it was not crowded on this Sunday night, our cheerful conversation did not bother others. I had the cod which was good. My wife had the duck confit, big portion. Fish soup is tomato based and tasty. The... More

I've been coming to Au Petit Extra for over 15 years. The first time I went, the restaurant was a busy, popular, and vibrant place. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was great. For a short time a few years ago, I felt that the quality of the food and service had dropped. However, I decided to give the... More

Took my mother and husband here on Saturday night for a recent visit to Montreal. We didn't have a reservation, but were quickly and nicely seated anyway. The hostess was extremely nice and accommodating. Our server was nice, too, although certainly had a French "attitude", but we're in Montreal, so I rather expect it. He did bring us the English...

We came here on a recommendation from our B&B. Excellent choice. We shared an appetizer and had an entrée each. My wife’s flank steak was cooked correctly, and my broiled cod (maybe not cod… something cod-y) was a delight. We finished with a cheese course -- the smallest, but more than sufficient cheese course. All the dishes were well-considered, well-sauced... More

Hard to find any words other than WOW!!!Went to this place based upon the recommendation of the owner of our bed-and-breakfast the Alexander Logan which we would highly recommend. Started with the boudin or blood pudding which was heavenly. My wife had the wild mushrooms. For mains I had the fillet of pork which was out of this world. My... More

What a special and charming restaurant and boy! They make the best boudin noir we've ever had and the only Goose leg confit we've ever had! This would be a regular spot for us if we lived in Montreal and between the fine food and the great service we highly recommend it for a lovely, easy tasty dinner.

I discovered this restaurant a few weeks ago and it's a good surprise. The food is really good! The wines are tasty too, but quite expensive... The ambience is very "old french style" with waiters dressed with typical uniform and the decoration, maybe a little too much for me. But the service is impeccable, our waiter give us a visit...

Another restaurant recommended by the owners of the Bed & Breakfast where we stayed. Again, they were absolutely right. French Bistro fare well prepared and delicious. The restaurant is quite large and was only half filled on the Tuesday night we visited. One of us had the Confit de Canard and the other had a Fish Stew based on Monk... More

Friendly,appreciative staff, excellent food selection, preparation and delivery in a traditional French bistro. Easy to access by walking, metro, car or taxi but off the tourist path abit. Wonderful park nearby and downhill from Rue Rachel, a major biking route. We have been dining here for about 25 years of their 30 year history and the food is always just... More

Love this restaurant. Food is great and plentiful. Menu is written on the chalkboard. Ambience is Parisian. Off the tourist track, it's a wonderful place to experience. As you enter the restaurant one can imagine the swirling clouds of cigarettes, music and laughter. It is one of my most favorite places in Montreal. Great character, great food.

Staying in The Village (Gay Village)

Neighborhood Profile
The Village (Gay Village)
The rainbow pillars of Beaudry Métro Station shepherd the way into to The Village, one of the largest hubs for gay and lesbian culture in North America. With an open layout and a congenial aura, the refurbished buildings along Rue Sainte-Catherine pay a special homage to menswear and to caffeine, with showrooms and cafes. By morning, the antiquing gems along Amherst Street are packed with collectors. An incredible party spot, The Village comes alive at night, when clubs, bars, and dance halls open their doors and the revelry is high, epitomized by the fanciful trimmings of the apropos Oscar Wilde building. From May to September, the area closes to automotive traffic, allowing restaurant terraces to pour onto the streets, creating a dynamic sense of community. Les Boules Roses, thousands of pink baubles, are hung to welcome in the festivals and celebrations, including Montréal en Arts, Divers-Cité, and the Pride Parade.
