The restaurant we planned to go to was closed so we ended up here, unsure of what we'd be getting. And I must say, we were pleasantly surprised! The restaurant doesn't look like much but I have no complaints about the food. The serving sizes were generous and very, very good. The restaurant was spick and span, and though outdated,... More

I was looking for a late meal on my first night in Montreal and was pleasantly surprised to see that Fameux was still open (it was around 10 PM) I had the smoked meat sandwich and poutine. Both were excellent! I was originally going to wait to visit Schwartz's deli for the honors but am glad I stopped here. Service... More

Stayed in Montreal 4 days, found this local hot spot the first night and came back every day there after! Portions huge and a great price! The service was friendly and very helpful in translating words we did not understand. We will absolutely be back!!!😀

This is, from the 100 restaurants I went in Montreal, the worst. Today, my girlfriend and I went in there for brunch to try it out. We entered and we got told, "just sit somewhere". So we sit at a spot with dishes on the table (because there were dishes on all empty tables). We even asked a waitress if... More

Very good lunch (tried meal of the day), delicious breakfast. Very nice service. And all this for very good price. I was 3 days in Montreal and visited La Fameux twice.

As newcomers to Montreal, we ended up in Mont-Royal to feel out the neighbourhood and even got a key cut and picked up a few slices of bacon at the local boucherie and some new vapes ..... by then we were hungry and this place looked like it had just what we wanted: poutine, local brewed beer and they even...

Seriously, the service is okay, the people working there are more or less nice. But you tell me how you can forget to put cheese in a 13$ poutine !? Seriously I was so mad at you when I get back home. Yes it was to go, so I won't go back there even in an other life. Regarding the... More

Just around the corner near the Mont Royal station, this is one of my favorites! They have some combos (table d'hôte) which will make your day, with several options on the menu! The food is delicious and the waitresses are most of the times very nice and might even suggest you some plates. Come, eat well and be well served!

Went there with some friends and really enjoyed the smoked meat sandwich. Found the draught "Vieux Montreal" tasted like watered down bud light but the waitress had told me some ppl like it and some ppl hate it...I should've figured the ppl who "liked it" drank bud on a regular basis lol. She was still very nice to us 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.
