The cobblestone-paved street is lined with historic buildings and serves as a spot where you can immerse yourself in the lively old city vibe. Check out the multitude of restaurants, bars, and cafes; admire the old Chapel; or visit the public market. Filled with shops and galleries, the street boasts a fusion of history, culture, and entertainment. Planning Montreal trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • The road as an active road with plenty of hotels, restaurants and bars. It is located close to the Montreal Since Center, Montreal History Center and the famous Notre-Dame Basilica of Montreal.  more »
  • First off, this is essentially a tourist trap. Nonetheless, a lot of fun can be had here. The architecture is absolutely stunning for North America, it does have a unique European French feel. There a...  more »

  • A very "local feel" hangout restaurant-bar. Nice views outside to surrounding Old Montreal streets since it's upstairs and has windows on both sides. Vintage look. Good pub food with creative poutine options and burgers each named after vintage rock & roll stars. All food was served nice and hot! Big drink menu with a decent selection of beers and wines as well as a full bar. Reasonable prices for alcohol and for food (half L and bottles of wine available & all apps and entrees were between 8-25$)
  • Good ambience. Good food. Great drinks. I wish they could give nice glasses.
  • Nice cozy pub with a fun, friendly atmosphere. Drinks are average-priced and they have a pool table, TV screens and some live entertainment. They are also a restaurant but I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for value for your money and above average quality. I had a new York Steak with fries and a salad. Although the steak was cooked exactly like I asked and had an awesome charcoal flavour, it came doused in a disgusting brown sauce, despite my demand to omit the sauce. Fries were good, crispy and not greasy. Salad was abominable, couldn't even touch it..it was completely wilted, had way too much dressing, a couple of wet croutons and some coarsely grated cheese... Frankly for 22$ (on special, regular is 26$!!) they could do better. I guess if you stick to burgers or poutine you get more value.
  • The sound system was mess up when selecting music. Your selection played at a lower volume than the automatic music the machine played. Other than that the food was good.
  • Incredible place to have fun, got served with a smile every time, people around were great, i would come more often if it was closer to me! Highly recommend this place.

Where to stay in Montreal

If beautiful architecture and views over the water appeal, stay in the historic neighborhood of Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal), where you'll be a stone's throw from the best attractions in the city. If modern convenience is more important to you, look for accommodations in the downtown neighborhood of Centre-Ville, or head a bit farther out to the artsy district of Plateau Mont-Royal. LGBTI visitors might want to consider staying in The Village, Montreal's famously progressive hub of gay and lesbian culture.
