What a fun, friendly spot! Excellent Syrian food with a warm staff ready to explain anything on the menu and make great recommendations. Lots of great choices but personal favorite was the hummus with lamb. It was also nice to get out of Central Montreal.

Outremont, a quaint residential district just north of
Downtown, is a peaceful, low-key setting known for its
mod cafes and bistros, and some of the best walking
territory Montreal has to offer. Visitors can explore
the flowering parks and manor estates of Maplewood
Street, then window-shop the popular bakeries and
coffeehouses on main arteries of Chemin de la
Côte-Sainte-Catherine and Rue Van Horne. The modern

Damas, an upscale Syrian restaurant located on Avenue Van Horne. You will be charmed by the Oriental decor and most impressed by their refined and rich cuisine. This modern but authentic gastronomy will make your mouth water with all their specialties starting from the fattouche, the appetizing mouth-melting lamb leg to the cherry kebab. The blend of aromas and the tasting of the delicious preparations will make the experience worthwhile.
