Wandered in on a quiet night and got some drinks to start, service was attentive but meals were a bit slow in coming which was surprising as its a big place and was pretty empty. Started with tasty quesadilla and then Santo tacos for main. Hot stuff, had a good sweat going by the end, nice long aftertaste, overall very... More

Went on a Friday night. I thought it would be loud, but it was fine. The service was A1 and the food was great. Really enjoyed the Sangria and the Burrito Grande with steak. The decor is great and the place is comfy.

We saw the restaurant on Google and decided to try it. The wait staff were very helpful and friendly. We both had the chilli lunch special as we were told that the fajita special was a very large portion. The waiter gave us a free cup of tortilla soup (it was very good). The chips and salsa were good. The... More

The restaurant has a good menu and the food was served very quickly. The food was fairly plentiful even for the appetizer portions. Everything was fairly tasty but not wow- we had the chicken tacos, shrimp firecracker appetizer tacos and cigar appetizer. Prices were fairly reasonable. The meal came to about $70 with drinks for 3 people. My only suggestions... More

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

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.
