Breakfast was a full Canadian breakfast beautifully cooked and presented,very much a hearty meal. Served by efficient and friendly servers. Obviously a local favourite because more locals than foreign tourist such as us. Dinner was chosen because of... More

Located in the Auberge du Vieux Porte, Taverne Gaspar is attractive, has a very friendly and efficient waiter staff and serves really good food at a fair price. The lobster thermidor was a main course treat and the starter and desert matched every expectation.

We stopped by this restaurant last Monday evening while visiting Montreal for two nights. It's in the Old Port area of Montreal and was literally a five minute walk from our hotel which made it very convenient. We were seated right away and as the restaurant wasn't very busy (it was very quiet in Montreal last week) we were asked... More

We are normally skeptical of breakfasts included with a hotel room, but this was more like getting an amazing breakfast at an actual restaurant – included with our room. The spinach Benedict was so good, it influenced our decision to eat there two days in a row and order it both times! The crepes with fruit we ordered one day and... More

We're staying at the hotel and have had their food twice. The atmosphere is delightful! The roasted chicken was amazing, as was the artichoke dip! We had the eggs benedict for breakfast and the veggie omelet. Both were spot on, except I wanted to swim in the hollandaise sauce, and apparently that's frowned upon.... The fruit plate was very fresh... More

We stayed at the hotel attached to the tavern and dined here twice. It's a great place full of character and it gets a bit busy and lively on weekends. A great choice of beers, wines and spirits at the bar and the staff were excellent. The Gaspar beer was outstanding, the hangover maybe not so much!! the food is... More

Located in the Old City part of Montreal, Gaspar is a modern North American style pub and dining establishment. A broad and reasonably priced menu featuring breakfast, lunch and dinner, Gaspar is a great stop for visitors and locals alike. Tip - try the homemade potato chips and dip, it's fabulous.

My husband and I stayed at the Auberge de Vieux-Port for our anniversary week-end, and it ended up being very cold and rainy, which means we did not want to venture out as far as we were previously expecting. Luckily for us, the Taverne Gaspar is attached to the hotel! We had lunch one day at the Taverne, and came... More

Description
Every night, drinks flow generously as our kitchen serves up fresh, pub-style cooking. The menu: soulful staples, original cocktails and friendly service in a classic tavern setting.
The space, originally a 19th-century warehouse, preserves much of its old-school furnishings but with a few novel kicks. And come summer, we welcome the warm weather with our big terrace on rue de la Commune.

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighbourhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic centre of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its centre, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theatre.
