Went to “l’entrecote Saint-Jean” in downtown Montreal last night, on Peel corner de Maisonneuve. If you’re looking for a steak and fries dinner go no further. They only serve steak and fries,and they do it well! For 25$ you walk out full and satisfied. Soup,...More

The last time I was in Montreal was around 14 years ago, and this place hasn't changed. The food is still perfect and super delicious. I would recommend making a reservation since it is packed. The service is not bad, but that is most likely...More

Very bistro-like, but unique concept wherein they only serve steak/frites/salade vert. You can also get a cream soup starter and an excellent profiterole for dessert, and they have recently added a vegetarian entree (did not try it), but that's about it. Wonderful French atmosphere and...More

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
