This is a very high end kind of sports bar! Excellent music, fabulous burgers and good beer. We sat at the bar and watched the baseball whilst wolfing down giant portions of calamari, shrimp, burgers and fries. We could have shared because there was so much food! Service was slow because they were packed full but very friendly. The bill... More

Wonderful service. Relaxed. Ordered the beet and goat cheese salad and added grilled chicken. So yummy that my friend and I are talking about getting it again for lunch while we are still here. It was a perfect evening meal after checking into our nearby (springhill Marriott) hotel.

Hello jennyfromtheprairies Thank you so much for your review. That beet salad is quite popular and a perfect meal for a light snack after a flight. Unfortunately Méchant Boeuf opens at 5pm, where we will be more than happy to make that dish for you at that time. Take care Eric Pelletier Food and beverage Director Hôtel Nelligan 106, rue...

Someone from our group recommended this place. I found the music too loud and the service very slow. You could smell the smoke from those standing in front of the restaurant inside. The food was okay, not that great in my opinion. It's not a place that I would consider coming back to. Our group ordered the mini burgers, snow... More

Found this place on TripAdvisor and thought it looked cool + I love beef tartare especially when in Montreal. The beef tartare did not disappoint, it was yummy, my bf had a burger and it along with the fries were delish. Nice wine choices too. We sat at the bar and the service was really great - super friendly &... More

Hello KLH21 Sitting at the bar is always a treat, you get to be entertain by the staff, doing the cocktails and talking up a storm with the clientele. I've said it before and I'll say it again; our tartar is a staple on our menu, worth the try. I'm really glad that you enjoyed your evening, hope to see... More

Picked this place at random on a stroll through the old port area--it was crowded but we still were seated immediately without a reservation. Friendly staff, good wine list, live music, and the best poutine I had on my visit to Montreal!

Hello Cathy H Poutine! All the best that comfort food can bring you, fries, cheese and gravy topped with pulled pork. We do take pride in this dish that has been perfected and a staple on our menu for 9 years now. The live music on Tuesdays and Wednesdays is the cherry on top of it. The team always appreciates...

For being a steak place, I anticipated a good steak. The steak came overly prepared...well, well done. And the sides were terrible...seemed frozen and thawed mixed vegetables and boxed (fake) mashed potatoes. I'll never go back and wouldn't recommend this restaurant. But...the staff were incredibly friendly!

Ok, so Old Montreal in general is not exactly stroller friendly, let alone a double stroller for a toddler and an infant. My husband and I had a hard day.....it was hot, navigating the streets/sidewalks was tricky and tiring. All we wanted was a civilized, adult dinner.

For our 1st night dinner we were checking out wine & tapas bars online, but since the reviews on most said they were pricey and not worth the money, we decided to check out other restaurants nearby. We lucked into Mechant Boeuf. We shared the beet salad & the charcuterie platter. They were both excellent! The platter presentation was beautifully... More

AAA Angus Beef, a delicious raw bar, colorful cocktails, live music and the best burger in town-Mechant Boeuf delivers on all fronts. A 5a7 fixture, this Old Montreal hub adds a pinch of outlandishness to modern pub sensibilities. It's a fresh spin on post-work unwinding and late-night bites. Montreal's mischievous side never tasted so good!

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
