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!

Live music, great service and good value for money

This place is packed with good reasons to go: value for money food and beverages. The staff are friendly and on top of everything. Service was quick and efficient. But the best thing was the live music, giving it a really good vibe. I recommend this place to anyone who loves good food and great... read more

We ended up getting into Montreal much later than planned due to flight issues and subsequently a closed car rental situation and had to cancel our reservation. When we finally did get out near 9 or 10 we popped into this restaurant and were pleasantly greeted. The waitress was friendly and patient with my first attempts at French which I... More

Not cheap, but for a splurge, it's worth it. Mostly millennial-age crowd in pairs. Noisy. Worth trying at the"Happening Gourmand" promotion.

Went to eat here with 4 girlfriends after bridesmaid dress shopping. What a great atmosphere and feel to this place.

One of the restaurants at the Hotel Nelligan, this place scored a solid 10 for me. The ambiance and service was outstanding. This place can be crowded on weeknights, but there is enough room to handle large crowds. I ordered the honey spicy wings for Apps, which had the right amount of sweet and spice. The filet mignon was just... More

Interesting and eclectic dining area, complete with Steer's skull... But good menu and good portions. Friendly staff, special coat room in winter. Good to go with fun people and share platters.

This is a lively restaurant with a great variety of food for everyone. We had the filet mignon and the New York Strip. The portions were big and the food was flavourful. This is not a restaurant you go to for a quiet meal. We would definitely return.

Wow ! Thank you for this great review. Indeed our Bar-Brasserie can get really crowded with the many anniversaries and bachelorettes which brings the general sound a little higher. And then, the festive atmosphere fallows ;) See you soon! More

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.
