The Plateau Mont Royal was a working class neighbourhood up until a few decades ago. The streets are lined with duplexes showcasing Montreal's outdoor staircases and beautiful architectural details.

In a more recent past, this area of Montreal has also made particular effort to make the neighbourhood safer and more enjoyable to pedestrians and cyclists. In the summer you can borrow a bicycle for free at the Mont Royal subway station - you can also of course enjoy a ride on the Bixi.

The commercial streets are worth visiting (Mont Royal avenue, St-Denis, St-Laurent, Parc Avenue) but don't forget St-Viateur, Laurier and Duluth - most importantly, enjoy a walk through the beautiful residental streets, there's a lot of hidden treasures in this part of town!

Use bus and Metro to get around. Walking an even better option. Service in English and French never a problem....in fact likely no problems in dozens of other languages spoken in the Plateau area. Some of the city's best restaurants and bars line the streets, or are tucked away in places only residents know. Safe for travellers....by "safe" I mean as safe as you would be back home...carry yourself accordingly. Great architecture. Great vibe.

My daughter lives on the Plateau and each time we go for a visit, we get more frustrated. It takes forever to drive up and down the one-way streets to get somewhere and finding a parking is now hell. We used to brunch almost every sunday morning on Mount Royal Avenue with friends followed by a movie on St-Denis Street: no longer. We also used to enjoy eating at some french, sushis, indian or italian restaurants. We no longer go except for visiting our daughter or give her a lift somewhere. We are not welcomed by the mayor because he believes that visitors should not go to the Plateau by car. It is better for him to discourage drivers and create all kinds of troubles for them and their passengers. Coming from the South Shore, we are people who used to regularly spend money on the Plateau. Now, the Plateau is no longer our privileged place, we go elsewhere or stay on the South Shore for our social and cultural activities, thanks to the mayor.

The Plateau is one of Montreal's coolest neighbourhoods: amazing restaurants and shops. It's too bad that the Ville de Montreal insists on limiting access to the Plateau. It's such a hassle to navigate (with its myriad of road constructions) or to find any parking spot, that it's hardly worth it visiting. A pity...
