A very nice cosy and relax place for sharing meze between friends... It is good food, not so traditional just enough nouvelle cuisine. All my friends adopted it. It is a hit!

We went here for a second brunch (first brunch was just a bagel with smoked salmon and coffee....). We were celebrating an anniversary in Montreal, and in thematic concert, we had spent an anniversary in Istanbul, so we wanted a little bit of connection between the two. This really isn't a Turkish restaurant, but it's really delicious. Brunch consists of... More

There is a fixed menu with a broad range of options. Everything ordered comes promptly and hot. Sitting at a snaking counter you get to be in the buzz and vibe of the restaurant. Laurier is a very cool street where to eat and shop.

Super smart, modern Turkish cuisine, served bar-style. You like this kind of place or you don't: all three of us left with sore necks because the bar seats are fixed just a bit too far from the food. But this is a quibble. The food manages to be both clean and refined as well as rustic and charming. Brunch is... More

This is a gem in Montreal's Mile End area. Everything on the menu sounded delicious. We were 3 and therefore decided to choose 2 plates from each section of the menu: field, sea and farm. We went with the brussels sprout salad which was delicious, and the cigars as delicious. From the sea we chose the calamari and the octopus.... More

If you want to discover mediteranean food and a very good restaurant, go there. First start with a cocktail: the barmaid is amazing and so creative. Then share a maximum of stuff: so good! Enjoy!

I think the food is good, I went for brunch. The food platter has a lot of different flavors. From olives to jams to nuts. I am not sure of the extras that come after the platter. Doesn't seem to match the flavors. I took the gravlax that was served over a salad and boiled egg. Also, tooooo noisy and... 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.
