This place, in the heart of the Old City, does no wrong. It's pricey, by well worth the splurge. The food is excellent and the atmosphere intimate and romantic. Highly recommended for a special night out in Montreal.More

We wore business casual. However, there were several other people who were wearing suits. It's definitely not a shorts & crop tops place.

At Barroco you can expect to enjoy inspired French Mediterranean fare in a warm and cozy atmosphere. With its dim lighting, stone walls and inspired decor, we offer fine dining that is chic but certainly not stuffy! Our friendly and knowledgeable waitstaff will do everything to make sure your experience is a memorable and enjoyable one. Reservations are highly recommended as our small 45-seat dining room tends to fill up quickly! We'll be happy to speak to you on the phone or you can head over to Bookenda to book a table. Looking forward to seeing you!
