OK, so it looks like the French Pavillon at Epcot. French music blaring, fake hams hanging from (fake) rafters. Wobbly wooden tables close together. When you first walk in, you say "oh boy, this looks like a tourist trap". And it is......but it's a GOOD tourist trap!!!! The omelettes are simply amazing, and they come with ample potatoes and (count... More

3rd time here and every time was an enjoyable experience. This is not a cosy restaurant with a romantic atmosphere. It is the type of place where it's a little crowed, the tables are not large, but you can talk loudly at ease and there is a great atmosphere of authentic Parisian brasserie. Edith Piaf could have showed up to... More

Come here! They were amazing. I asked for cheese, meat and bread and they served us the best platter I have ever seen. Highly recommended! Charlie, our server, was awesome!! Eclairs to die for. Well worth the price.

We enjoyed a cheese fondue with charcuterie platter. Very French feel. Interesting decor - that we enjoyed. The French music in the background added to the ambiance. Service was pleasant and very good. Food was very good. All in all a very nice lunch experience. I would go there again. I thought this was good value as well.

We are Montrealers and live in the Old Port. After passing by this charming restaurant for so many times, we decided to give it a try… We went there around 18:00 on a Saturday evening. First of all, BEWARE of the wine! Funny enough, they don’t give you a a wine card… The waitress said that a glass would be... More

We waited for 15 mins to get a table and once we sat down we heard people from the table beside us complaining. The restaurant ran out of bread and several other menu items. The server never visited us after we were at our table for 20 mins. The whole place seems pretty kitschy - if there isn't an old... More

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighbourhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
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.
