I went there on saturday before a concert. The food was ready quickly and very good. Le service était courtois et très professionnel. Belle atmosphère en plein centre-ville. Je le recommande.

Went here for supper with my husband, another couple and their two small children. Our waiter was very friendly and accomodating. LOts of fun music and the supper was delicious. My husband and I shared an app and the fajitas and deep fried icecream. The deep fried ice cream was good, but not as good as other places I've had... More

Came on a Saturday night, seated promptly upstairs, which has such a cool vibe: bar, lounge area, good music playing. Food and drinks were delicious: had a mojito, guacamole and chicken tacos...My boyfriend had a Corona and chicken quesadillas. Everything was excellent, fresh and served to us within little to no time. Service was also great, waitress and bar staff... More

During our vacation in Montreal my Wife and I stopped in here for a late night bite to eat. Our first impression almost cause us to leave within the first 2 minutes. We were seated and then brought over 2 plastic glasses of water. The water was warm, no ice and had a very heavy chlorine smell to it. It... More

This place did not live up to the expectation or excitement that had built up. Food was pretty good. Shrimp tacos were excellent. However the service wasn't the best. No warm smiles by the staff upon entering. The server wasn't at his best either and did not seem engaged. I think the owner was present too and walked past is... More

Not the first time I've been and certainly will not be the last. This time I visited with a few friends and sat in the upstairs area ( very great venue for group events ). The food was delicious, the service was spectacular, and the selection of tequila and special cocktails is unmatched. I would recommend this great Montreal restaurant... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
