Upon arrival, we were greeted and welcome immediately. We ordered poutine and grilled cheese sandwich with coleslaw spent C$31.62 between 2 (two) people. Restaurant and restrooms are clean and maintained. Interesting artificial fireplace as interior design.

I passed by this place while looking for a place to have lunch and remembered I saw this name on a top 5 of the best poutines in Montréal, so I decided to give it a try. The staff was very friendly and the menu hard to choose from I had the Berger Burger (with goat cheese) and a small... More

Frite Alors is one of the better chain restaurants in Montreal. After arriving at La Banquise at 8pm to 25 people standing outside in line, my boyfriend and I decided to go to this Frite Alors instead. We really enjoyed it! It was quite quiet that night and the staff were friendly and attentive. Our food was tasty and came... More

Well priced food which was delivered quickly. There was an error with our order but they rectified this immediately. The dipping sauce choice is good if a little mayonnaise-heavy.

A decent chain poutine place. At lunch time it was nuts...super packed and loud. I sat at a little bar and service was very slow. The lady was friendly but she was overwhelmed. I had the Frites Alors poutine, which is green peppers, mushrooms, onions and bacon. It was very tasty although at the bottom of the bowl it was... More

To see as a Belgian that the use the name of Belgium and Belgian fries to sell there product, I can say it's almost heartbreaking that the sell this. Hard, small and untasty fries. If you sell fries like this in Belgium then you're closed 1 Month later. They also have Belgian beer but not the right glasses. You can't... More

The frites (fries) are excellent however my burger was thin and dry. Also the server never came back to give us more water and at the end of the meal she charged me for a whole bottle of wine when I only ordered one glass (good thing I checked!)

Looked for a place that would be easy with the kids at 7:30 on a Saturday night and stumbled upon this place. I opted for the lamb burger!!! Poutine was great although I can't imagine anyone finishing larger than the regular size. The heavily tatooed staff were friendly but not falling over themselves to be of service - they were...

Staying in Quartier des Spectacles

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier des Spectacles
The bar-none entertainment district for music and arts, Quartier des Spectacles is an interactive playground that delights the senses. It totals over 30 performance halls, with the vibrant Place des Festivals at its heart. The outdoor event space features glowing towers, glass edifices, and granite-lined bike paths, and hosts annual festivals, concerts, and comedy nights. The cinema, theatres, and exhibition centres are entwined with external art projects, exemplified at Montreal's Contemporary Art Museum and appearing along every walkway of the Promenade des Artistes in the form of sculpture and public works, from digitally-enhanced swingsets to glowing fountains. Design, performance, and alternative music come together here, a stone's throw from the lively Latin Quarter along Rue Saint-Denis, the quintessential after-party spot for dinner and a drink following a day of jazz, poetry and play.
