We had the Portuguese chicken and the calamari, as well as the creme brûlée and it ALL was delicious! The staff was also very attentive and the service was excellent. We didn't have to wait much for the food and the staff took the time to explain each of the plates in detail. I would definitely recommend it to anyone... More

First off, we had a reservation and were promptly seated once arrived. Making the reservation over the phone was quick and easy. You're welcomed with bread and water right away. We took the chef's platter, which is basically all the meats, a dish of the calamari, a sausage platter and finally a steak perfectly cooked to requested bloodiness. The chocolate... More

Had the calamari and shrimp for appetizers which were great with the hot sauce! The chef's grilled meats (lamb, pork, chorizo, chicken) were also delicious. Bread a little dry. Great place for charcoal flavour during the winter!

I first went to another nearby Montreal institution for their chicken. This other place is mostly take out with a few seats for those who eat-in. However the groups of people in line behind me were taking the seats. So I left fearing I would not get a place to sit. I walked to Jano and it was so much... More

Came here the other day with my boyfriend. We both had the combo which consists of home fries, lamb chops and 1/4 chicken. The food was very tasty. The bbq sauce that they offer with the chicken can be a bit spicy so beware. I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant, not to noisy so conversation is easy. Service... More

I've been coming here once in awhile for years when in Montreal. It's decent. I no longer eat meat. When I did, I liked the chicken. I love the bread. The dessert was good. The people who run the place and work there are very nice. I like the vibe. I went again last week. I had Dorade. It wasn't... More

We have been going to Jano for a long time and it has become one of our favorite places to eat of St Laurent. You get a lot of food (olives, bread, salad comes with the meal) for a very good price. Our favorite option is the grilled chicken with their amazing spicy sauce, tender and great flavor! However, our... More

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colourful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
