This is our first dinner in Montreal each time we go for 15 years now. Just the best steak frites around. From the beef to the sauce to the frites divine. We did order the "larger" steak for one person at our table just to compare and we all preferred the "normal" size in terms of taste. The smaller size... More

I have gone here for many years. The service is excellent and the food delicious. The menu really only has steak and frites on it. Everything is covered in a sublime sauce. I will continue to go for many more.

Hum... I was a little bit disappointed last night. The food was good, the quality of the meat excellent for an entrecôte. We new what menu to expect because the restaurant is willingly saying that they are inspired by a very famous restaurant chain in France called L'Entrecôte. The restaurants in France offers only one menu. They are famous for... More

If you like pretty much steak & fries and little else with your salad & dessert, welcome! Montreal's well-known, mid-to-upscale pricing, consistently good fare eatery. Come if your palate needs simplicity, & you need good service.

There are stand-out places for this type of meal in Lyon, Brussels, Geneva and Paris but in Montreal this gets close. What a wonderful, courteous greeting on entering from a most elegantly presented madame d'une certaine age. The service is efficient and attentive as would be expected of a restaurant serving a set, very limited choice. An enjoyable experience although... More

This restaurant focuses on steak and fries with their special sauce. The steaks are a thinner cut - so best if cooked rare or medium. Had a great table at a front window. This restaurant was always busy at lunch and dinner times - so we ate a bit later and had no problem getting a table.

Only steak frites, does it well. Steak is a loin, cooked well, but the meat wasn't particularly fantastic. Salad with Walnuts was good (butter lettuce).

I first ate at this restaurant years ago when attending university in Montreal. The quality has not changed over the years and it has been consistently excellent every time I returned to Montreal and ate there. They only serve one thing: French style steak & frites, with soup, salad and profiteroles. Serving only one thing allows this restaurant to be... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
