We visited this restaurant last night and were charmed by the ambience, service and food. It was selected due to the great Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The couple who own and operate the bistro are delightful. There are about 10 tables and reservations are staggered every half hour. They are a must and start at 6pm. They do accept credit cards. Can't wait to go back!

Excellent cuisine - perfect combinations and portions just right. Very pleasant and smiling waitress/?owner happy to help out in English if necessary. A delight.
An easy 20 min walk from the hotel district to this small neighborhood restaurant.
Confused initially by the fact that all tables are reserved and walk-ins are turned away, yet for over two hours of being there only four other tables were occupied.
I realize people arrive at different times but this is a (good) indication that the restaurant is not about turnover it's about quality. With only the one chef and one waitress suspect it would impact on the experience otherwise.
We look forward to many returns here whenever in Montreal but will make sure we call many days ahead for reservation.

We loved everything about Duo D. The venue was quaint, not a tourist destination. We had a fabulous meals with great wine; the best meal we had while in Montreal. The owner was very friendly. And surprisingly, the price, for the quality of the meal and service was very reasonable. If you plan on visiting Montreal or if you live there, do not miss the experience.

When you see a top rating on Trip Advisor, you have great expectations. Ours were met and exceeded. An evening in this restaurant is like going to a friend's house for dinner. Mme Dubar is the most gracious host I have ever encountred in a restaurant. The staff consist of her and her chef-husband , who is literally chief-cook and bottle washer. The service is fast and the food is nothing short of outstanding. The menu is french bistro and includes classic items, plus a few house specialities. I had the steak tartare. It was the best I have eaten anywhere, including those I had in many top restaurants in France. The quality of the preparation and selection of the ingredients is way above standard and demonstrates that Mr. Déry is a master of his craft. The ambiance is calm and lighthearted and many patrons are regulars; easy to understand why. You must have a reservation in the evening and that's why service is so smooth. It is our new bistro in Montreal, sorry Lemeac. Merci au duo D pour cette soirée mémorable.

After numerous attempts to get a reservation, we finally made it to Duo D and it was definitely worth the wait! This tiny bistro run by husband and wife team, Philippe and Catherine, offers a first class dining experience. Everything was delicious and the service was outstanding. We will definitely be going back very soon.
