I lived in Peru about 15 years ago and a meal here was a nice trip down nostalgia lane. We hoofed it on the metro but was worth it. Good food and value with no pretentiousness.

This is a good place to have a traditional peruvian breakfast in Montreal, it includes pork sandwich Lima's way and other classics dishes.

My husband and I stumbled upon this restaurant while in Montréal. What a lovely surprise to find Peruvian food! No, we haven't been to Peru but to us it was a delightful experience eating foods we haven't eaten before. We had The Breakfast: blood sausage, sweet potato chips, a type of polenta croquette, and fabulous marinated pork. At the time,... More

Realizing one cannot ever get "top shelf" cuisine outside of Peru, this simple, clean, family style restaurant comes quite close. Kind of a "mom & pop" atmosphere, I found the menu clear and prices average for Montreal. Can get crowded as muchos Peruvians come here for lunch and dinner. Little hard to find, but street parking in neighborhood is ok.... More

This restaurant does not represent the real Authentic Peruvian cuisine for the ''Connoisseur''. My husband order the Lomo Saltado and was not at all impressed with the quality of the meat (hard and rubbery) or the quantity of the whole dish, and for the Seco de Cabrito, they served me a hard-fat piece of beef instead, along with a very...

If you're looking to discover a taste of Peru in Montreal, this is an excellent place to do so. Tucked away off the beaten path, this gem of a restaurant offers copious, authentic Peruvian cuisine. This was actually my second time to the restaurant, after discovering it several years ago. It was every bit as good as I remembered from... More

Staying in Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension

Neighbourhood Profile
The most ethnically diverse of all of Montreal's neighbourhoods, Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension (or, Parc-Ex) stands at the city's centre, a hub for rail and metro traffic. Starting at the old station where the Canadian Pacific used to disembark, the brick-and-mortar surroundings of Parc-Ex have a homey feel, with leafy lawns and bicycle lanes seamlessly incorporated into the landscape. With prominent Greek and Spanish communities, Greektown includes the tastiest stops for brochettes and shawarma, and local bars entertain an excitable soccer fanbase. Jerry Park and Stade Uniprix stand ready for sports diehards to enjoy a game, while the the Complexe Environnemental Saint-Michel and Le Taz skate parks invite athletes to train and compete. Though built for the active and best by day, Cirque du Soleil, the TOHU center for arts, and the Le Boulevard shopping centre offer diversions for those who wish to stay late.
