Very friendly place and a nice relaxing atmosphere. Had the steak which was cooked beautifully and a wide selection of wine was available - would recommend for a nice French dinner

A small little place, away from the downtown but worth the taxi fare. Excellent cuisine, all plates are worth trying. Desserts are a must, especially after a cheese platter. The service is very good, and the atmosphere hommy. Wine choices are not bad.

This little Bistro is well situated in the Rosemount district of Montreal, facing a park and near a popular French cinema. It is always a good idea to reserve since the places are limited. The service is friendly and helpful and prompt. This put me...More

I've been to the Detour at least 20 times over the last 20 years, and I've never been disappointed, even during the 7 years when owner Jean-François was overseas catering for Cirque du Soleil cast and crew. Montreal has several good bistros (l'Express, Café Cherrier,...More
