If you visit Montreal, make sure to stop by the Little Burgundy district. We have discovered the area this year as we normally tend to stay around the Old Montreal. As we were attending an event and we’re looking for something not too heavy to...More

Food is good but nothing special for the price. Same for drinks, quite pricey for small quantities. 8$ for a half sized pint of beer

Very casual small joint at the corner of Notre-Dame and Vinet in Montreal. The place boasts flavors and fresh food! We had the fish and the steak tacos. Freshly made, great ingredients, very flavorful. For a quick bite, you can't go wrong.

Very cozy and rich-in-ambiance little place a bit out of the centre of town. The music, the cocktail shaking and the food makes for a complete dining experience. The food is beyond good, Quesadillas are a recommendation.

On a warm Saturday, I took my teenage son for dinner. You cannot make a reservation so we headed out early (6 pm) and there was no wait. Although the tacos are quite small, they are quite filling. We ordered an appetizer each but only...More

Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialised Montreal, the
factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have
been renovated into homes, museums, and small
businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its
Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge
galleries and an ever-expanding network of
restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the
mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the
