It is simply wonderful to sit on a sunny day on the terras at this location. Looking over the water and park at people passing by. Eating one of this delicious lobster rolls and drinking a glass of chilled chardonnay to it. Life is good, go there.

Arrived when there was no rush and took a long time to be served. Service mediocre and unfortunately was not worth the wait. Ate here in the past and was very good. It is and always has been pricey. Shrimp and lobster roll lacked flavour, same with lobster roll. Disappointed and not worth the $$. I guess it has become... More

We wanted to try this lobster shack as we are all lobster lovers. Order the combo to get clam chowder and chips. The lobster rolls were delicious and fresh but had too much celery, the clam chowder had pieces of lobster in it but was it was more like a soup than a chowder, the broth needed salt. Service was...

The chowder was good, the lobster roll was average... Wasn't a bad experience, but wouldn't go out of my way to return. Great location, plenty of outdoor seating, different than your usual Old Port restaurants.

We went there specifically looking for lobster rolls and we were not disappointed. Maybe they are a little pricey at $14.95 but they are worth it. Full of lobster meat. Not too much mayo or sauce. They were delicious.

We read about this place in the Wall Street Journal and we love lobster rolls. Muvbox did not disappoint. The lobster rolls were very good (but we've had better in Maine) and the seafood chowder was very good as well. A great outdoor lunch venue. Try it.

We absolutely loved our Lobster Rolls and Rose in the sun at Muvbox. The view of the St. Lawrence lock system down by the water is very cool and we also loved that they have ample seating with shade sails, as well as more converted shipping container seating with picnic tables. If someone you're dining with doesn't like Lobster or... More

Place du Genie is a charming plaza fronted by a green swath on Montreal’s Old Port that attracts picnickers, bicyclists, tourists, and folks on their lunch breaks. The plaza has several food stands including the Resto MuvBox and its sister eatery the Tacobox. Both feature lobsters caught in the waters around the Iles Madeleine in the Saint Lawrence Gulf. At...

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.
