Check out the multitude of restaurants, bars, and cafes; admire the old Chapel; or visit the public market.

    The street is old and near the old port. Great during the day for shopping for gifts and souvenirs. And at night is good for restaurants and bars. If you are visiting Montreal, take 30 minutes to walk...  more »

    Strolling the streets in worth the trip. Every second store front is filled with the same ratty junk shop paraphernalia that riddles places like Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls or the Royal Mile in Edin...  more »

    Such a unique place. I enjoyed my fish and chip portion (although a bit overly greasy). Very nice staff especially behind the bar. Check out their amazing mural

    Came there with friends to enjoy some good pub food and atmosphere. First, they were playing pop musical. Second, the server didn't know what sodas they had and didn't give me what I asked for. Third, the food was wayyyyy over priced and under whelming, the nachos were a pile of chips with shredding cheese ONLY on the top layer. There's just better options. But, the servers were nice. The one we had was just awkward.

    Ok place. Not the best food but pretty acceptable. Utensils are not that clean either and a bunch of dead bugs on the side of the window.

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.
