The place is casual, the service friendly, the food is good at reasonable price, You can eat a steak or a high end hamburger, pizza, pastas, very good fish, have a beer, and the parking is easy! You can choose to sit in the restaurant or in the terrasse all year long... It is cool to be able to say:... More

This a local favourite for me. I had the table d'hôte with soup and filet mignon. The steak was superb. I asked for it rare and it was perfect. The desert was good too but the coffee was nothing special. Very friendly reception and service.

There's a reason why the Garage Cafe always seems busy: it offers fairly good food for a fair price. It also appears to be a bar among the favourites in the Verdun area of town but I wanted to try their quality of food. They also offer wine by the glass which is reasonable priced. I tried the standard burger... More

Visiting family who live nearby and ate here 3 times during my stay. Fantastic value for the price, excellent food quality, generous portions, great selection of beer and wine, and friendly service. Just wish I could be here in the summer and sit outside.

Had the salmon salad and it is huge with lots of smoke salmon for only $12.95. A cappuchino for $2.95 and sugar pie for $4.00. My friend had the filet mifnon with goat cheese for only $22. And the portion was big also. The food is great and so is the service. I will definitively return.

Good menu selection. Very friendly service. Open to special (yet not complicated!) special requests, we ate on the covered and heated terrace in March. Not our first visit, not our last!

This was our first dinner in Montreal and it was a fun local spot. The open air, intimate dining room is cool and relaxed for a great summer evening option. We ordered pizza, which is thin crust and delicious (and easy to order if you can't read the menu, which is in French). Highly recommend!

I love this place because the food is good, it is priced right and the vibe is friendly and relaxed. I had a very good thin crust pizza and you can customize it to your liking! The filet mignon is really good and tender and the mashed potatoes are delish! Sometimes the kitchen gets overwhelmed when there is a lot... More

Small cafe that is really a garage! Opens up in nicer weather for fun in the sun! Great hamburgers and love the string fries! Busy place and I can see why! Lots of variety with the menu : pizza , burgers, sandwiches -hot n cold. Plenty of food! You'll won't be disappointed!
