The owners of the Bed and Breakfast we were staying at highly recommended this restaurant and we so enjoyed our first meal that we made reservations for two nights later. This restaurant is casual with a bring your own wine policy and no charge for the wine service. Reservations are strongly recommended as the establishment is relatively small and extremely... More

For fans of the Montreal restaurant bring-your-own-bottle of wine experience, the three of us made this our first dinner reservation of a two night stay. This is my fourth time there and it never disappoints. Had the foie gras appetizer with lentils and chips presented on a small chopping board, followed by the veal which was juicy, marinated and a...

Bring your own wine to this cozy restaurant (high ceilings make for a somewhat noisy room). Excellent menu and service.

What a dinner! This restaurant combines creative cooking with offerings such as delicious, tender deer. It was a memorable meal, the best in Montreal. That's high praise because delicious food is the norm in Montreal.

If you're in town for the evening and want a place to eat scrumptious food and bring your own wine, look no further than O'Thym, on Maisonneuve in the village. Good choice of dishes using local and seasonal products with a gastronomic flair. My companion had the morel mushroom starter and was entranced. The foie gras was pretty good too.... More

Small restaurant with bring your own wine and amazing french cuisine. Sadly two of the main dish options had sold out by the time we ate which was disappointing, however the food we did order was incredible (venison and duck mains with the lamb sweetbread starter). The creme brulee was the best we've had anywhere, and at $45 CAD/head we... More

This little restaurant is a bit off the beaten path and serves inventive, well-prepared French-based cuisine. I was concerned with our group of 6 because there are some finicky, non-adventurous eaters . . . but everyone found something and thought it was the best meal we had in Montreal. I thought the foie gras starter was one of the best... More

Very tasty food, at a lower price and larger portions than some of the fine dining establishments we visited in Montreal. Unlike Europea or Bouillon Bilk, the staff had forgotten about my wife's dietary restriction, and tried to give her some soup that she couldn't eat. It may have been as simple as miscommunication between members. Then the replacement salad... More

My wife and I and a good friend shared a lot of food and a lot of laughter at this restaurant. It was excellent French cuisine with modern flair. The "trou normand" was amazing, as was the duck and the Crème brûlée. The best allongé capped off this wonderful and satisfying meal. We brought our own bottles to the table.

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.
