This unique spot has a prix fixe (more of a table d'hote, really); two options, regular and vegetarian. No a la carte, but you shouldn't let that bother you. Excellent value, since every dish (four courses including a large amuse bouche) was amazing and stylish. The drinks were also excellent and the wine list is pretty great too. The service... More

I usually drive by and I was always intrigued by this little restaurant around the Mile End, and had a most wonderful surprise when I went there, as it was better than we expected, and definitely better than what it looks like from the outside. All we tried was really great, but especially the marinated salmon with strawberries: such an... More

Exceptional food! You will not be disappointed. Even with the highest expectations (it was out third time), the chefs exceeded our expectations.

My girlfriend and I visited Montreal this weekend and wanted to eat at the top rated restaurant. Les Deux Singes de Montarvie did not disappoint. Make sure you have reservations, we booked ours weeks in advance. The service was exceptional, food brought to the table in a timely order and glasses were always full. All courses we had were fantastic,... More

Based on Trip Advisor's rating, I made a reservation for my wife's birthday dinner, and the whole experience was sublime! This is the kind of fine dining that creates a life-long memory. The ambience is casual, so don't expect white linen, crystal, and a daunting array of eating utensils, but the food, oh my! There are only two fixed price... More

We eat at many places that feel like restaurants - as one would expect. Occasionally, we come across a restaurant where they cook for you and serve you like you are in somebody's home. I've felt this way in smaller restaurants in Italy and elsewhere in Europe, but rarely in North America where great food typically comes from professional restauranteurs... More

Great food and well presented. Enjoyable atmosphere, with smiles and personal touch (first names on the tables). Lots of potential for this chef. Just need to invest more on the marketing side as they could go much further.

We came here on a recent Thursday for dinner. Because the restaurant is so small, it is advisable to make reservations well in advance; the restaurant accepts them via OpenTable. We took an Uber from our hotel in Old Montreal and the ride was about 20 minutes. All aspects of our experience were superlative. We both had the vegetarian tasting... More

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
