Great place for Sunday brunch... especially during the summer (the terrace). Very nice platters, all garnished with fresh fruits. Very affordable as well. Great atmosphere (plateau), but be prepared to wait during the weekend.

Overall: Value: Ambiance: Service: Food:

The BEST General Tao chicken in town!! And at this location, unlike at the original one on CDN, they offer lunch specials. These are fantastic!! For less than $10, you get a soup, an imperial roll, choice of rice or noodles, choice of main dish, and tea and a fortune cookie!! Went there last week, and there was so much food that I could barely finish half my plate. I recommend sharing the lunch special... (And yes, the decor is... not great - but you come to Kam Shing for the food.)

Overall: Value: Ambiance: Service: Food:

Best Pho in Montreal (take it from a Vietnamese girl)! They also have numerous other great dish, and the lunch combos are great too. Fantastic value for your money. Fast, courteous waiters. The only downside... it's almost always crowded and there are line-ups. The atmosphere and decor are really not great, but then again, you don't come to Pho Lien for that! :)

When and where: 2005-10-08 - Délices de Tokyo (Les)

Overall: Value: Ambiance: Service: Food:

The BEST General Tao chicken in Montreal!!! Also, one of the few restaurants to serve authentic won ton soup (filled with schrimps instead of pork). Several other great plates on the menu. Prices are also very reasonable - great value! Be warned, however, that the staff and waiters provide very bad service... They're not friendly and you'll end up waiting. But, thankfully, the food is definitely worth it. To avoid the bad service and bland decor, I recommend ordering take out (call ahead). Get the best food, without the attitude!! ;)

Overall: Value: Ambiance: Service: Food:

Been to 3 Amigos numerous times and have always been satisfied. Great fajitas (very generous portions), Mexican Flag platter, and Appetizer plate. Nice atmosphere - albeit a little dark when you're in the back. Great drinks too - margharitas and daiquiris are a must with your meal!

Been there several times, always for dinner. Calamari and pizzas are great - pastas so so (not great at all). A little pricey... Trendy place though (to be seen), but way too loud & crowded for my taste. Don't go there for a quiet dinner to talk or catch up with friends...

Overall: Value: Ambiance: Service: Food:

Casual, cosy little Italian place. Only had the lasagna (frozen - not recommended) and the canneloni (excellent). Have yet to try other pastas and dishes. Looking forward to going back...

Went there for drinks after work during the summer. Excellent rooftop terrace - great view. VERY hip & trendy place. Excellent drinks - best amaretto sour in town!! A bit pricey, but expected for the location. Service was alright (our waitress was new and therefore a little clumsy)

Overall: Value: Ambiance: Service: Food:

Excellent sandwiches (although some of them are huge - the pitas are by far the best ones and they are exquisite with the garlic mayo included), good selected salads and pizzas, and delectable desserts. Nice place - albeit very small - but quite pricey. Worth it every now and then though...

Overall: Value: Ambiance: Service: Food:

Charming and cosy little hidden Italian gem. Had dinner there with a friend. Very friendly and warm staff - great service. Food was good, but not spectacular. Prices are average - not great value really. Would return again though, but probably only for lunch.

Great food and fantastic ambiance in the heart of Old Montreal. Sublime fajitas (although be warned that portions are HUGE)! Lively maracchis at night... Place is pricey though...

Been going there for a couple of years now... always at lunch time for their buffet. Great vallue and good food... right downtown. Good Indian places are tough to find - definitely recommend this one!

When and where: 2005-10-08 - Café El Dorado

Overall: Value: Ambiance: Service: Food:

My first time there was for a lunch meeting... and the place was dead! The food really not exceptional, and the service... not very good either. (Good thing I had good company there that day!) My second time there was for Sunday brunch. The food that time was actually very enjoyable. It was soooo crowded then too. The downside: TERRIBLE service! The waitress never checked on us and never got me the coffee I asked for... Prices a little expensive for what it is... Several other better brunch places in the Plateau worth a try instead of this one...
