There are not many Mexican food places in Montreal, but when we want a good meal we always go to Mesa 14. It has bee around a long time and quality is consistent and good. Staff are really friendly and they make good margaritas also.

As per usual in Montreal a most delightful welcome and here particularly sweet-natured service. However, the food was Mexican "by numbers". It lacked heart, oomph, aagh and any sense of punch. Could it be that chilli is omitted deliberately or was this a really forgetful night in the kitchen? Also, not sure that Margaritas need to be served (and drunk)... More

We have loved visiting this restaurant on Bishop Street since it's early days as Mexicali Rosa's and are always relieved that it continues to offer Mexican food. I have to say, without a doubt, the fish tacos we had were the best fish tacos we have ever had. They were absolutely delicious and it will be the first restaurant I'll... More

We ate here during our 2015 vacation to Montreal and decided to go here again this year. When we arrived the bartender seated us promptly and we were given a seat in the back area. The server, Chelsea, came right away and was a great server throughout our meal. The food here is authentic Mexican food and is really tasty.... More

We tried this place one evening as we wanted something a little different so decided to go Mexican. The food was good and arrived quickly. Was fairly quiet when we were there though. Nice surroundings and attentive staff made for an all around good experience.

I used to come here with friends often a few years back and always loved it. I recently moved back to Montreal and couldn't wait to come back. Unfortunately I was extremely disappointed this time around. I have come twice in the last month, hoping I had just caught an off night the first time back. The service is slow,... More

Mesa 14 continues to innovate with their menu offerings. The restaurant has two levels including a more private are in the back of the first floor. Service is generally good, the food delicious, and the ambience inviting. My favorites here are fajitas for two people, taco salad served in a tortilla bowl (which you can eat at the end), and...

Its simply my favourite restaurant of all time. I went there maybe 10 of 15 times and I can assure you that I never had bad service, slow service or unfresh food like I read in the bad reviews. If you like spicy I highly recommend the Bandera Mexicana! And the Margaritas (they are 5$ on tuesday!!) :) LOVE it.... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
