We visited Kyo after reading the good reviews. We shared a multitude of dishes and enjoyed them all---sushi, sashimi, cooked cod, seaweed salad, etc. Everything was fresh and tasty. You do need to order a lot as the portions are small. We finished our meal...More

We went one night on spec, and spent a little time in the bar upstairs first, and then they found us a table. Suffice to say we returned a few nights later - it was that good. Nice staff, good service, and excellent sushi. Reasonable...More

A taste of Japan situated in a laid-back hideaway by Place d'Armes Square, Kyo Bar Japonais is a favourite among hungry, Old Montreal diners. Its menu boasts colourful izakaya creations, lunchtime bento box specials, smart sushi options and, with over 25 varieties, Montreal's most extensive sake list! Punctuating the assorted deliciousness is an atmosphere fit for good times, great company and ample post-meal sake sipping.
