Highly recommended. Very hip bar with great food. If you're looking for a quiet place to eat this is not for you but if you're looking for a place to have a drink and appetizers before dinner then ABSOLUTELY
Walked in upstairs not sure what to expect. Big music bar with a last supper mural on the wall. John Lennon and some disciples. Took a drink at the bar but decided a window seat looked better. Waitress a bit peculiar about us messing ip...More
My boyfriend and I had trouble finding a spot at a rooftop area for a drink in Old Montreal and noticed Philemon had windows opening up onto the street and a cool vibe about it. What a lovely surprise! We enjoyed a refreshing cocktail and...More
I chose this place in Old Montreal based on Trip Advisor reviews. The service was rude and the server seemed to resent serving us. The food was poor. I ordered a shrimp tart (tarte de crevette). It was cold, filled with canned shrimp and tons...More
On a boiling hot day Philemon gave us the sanctuary we needed and a couple of delightful cool drinks. Service was superb- we’d just arrived in Montreal and were surprised that the entire city appeared under construction- our server gave us excellent advice on where...More

The historic centre 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 centre, 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 theatre.
