Un plus sur Prince-Arthur

Menu intéressant, des classiques et des découvertes. De plus la terrasse avec lampes chauffantes pour les soirées plus fraiches est accueillante. Personnel très sympathique.

Foyer au bois !!

J'ai adoré admirer le feu de foyer au bois en dînnant,sentir l'odeur et entendre les crépitements. Quel endroit de détente pour toutes occasions.

Best place on Prince Arthur... but
July 29, 2014

My filet mignon was overcooked... It was still super tasty but I like my steaks nice and red and they simply overcooked it. Aside from that, it was some of the best food in the area. You can't go wrong if you have $45 a person in you pocket.

Truly Special Experience
July 26, 2014

Not knowing a ton about the area, my boyfriend and I selected this restaurant for his birthday celebration whilst in Canada. We had an amazing time. Honestly could not have been better. We shared the cheese/meats plate then the filet mignon over a bottle of the house wine. Truly great experience. Will definitely go back.

I actually came to this restaurant probably over a year ago, but I have thought of my meal many times since then! The steak frites was wonderful. I want to go back but I am from out of town and it is far! It was such a lovely experience. I would recommend the restaurant and the steak frites! Simply prepared, but simply perfect.

I ate here on my last night in Montreal, as I wanted to try an authentic French-Canadian meal that wasn't too expensive like some of the other ones in the city. I was impressed not only by the reviews I had read, but also by their use of OpenTable and the Yelp offer for the free dessert. The restaurant itself has a …

Great pedestrian street front restaurant. The three levels that open up to the street are great places to kick back and enjoy dinner and drinks. Food was great with ample portions and the drink / wine selection was fabulous. Service was a little slow but I think there was a shortage in wait staff this night.....overall, I would go back again.

poor service and bad food
June 26, 2014

We ordered monkfish, which was extremely dry and difficult to swallow. The piece of bacon which came with the fish seemed like we were eating just salt. We also ordered duck confit, which had no taste or flavor and the skin was incredibly salty. The service was just as poor, drinks would take 15 min to appear, the bill even longer. Would not recommend to anyone

Great food - but never most of it
June 25, 2014

The food - or what I actually got to eat of it - was excellent. The problem was that my server seemed unable to remember half my order, and after multiple reminders, I still never received most of my meal. From what I gathered from the table next to mine, their server was just as bad - and the restaurant was not very crowded. Perhaps it was just an off night, but for the price of the appetizer... more

Food could be better
June 24, 2014

Our appetizers were fine. There was a long wait for main courses. Two different duck dishes were dry and tough as was the fish in prosciutto. Our server was lovely but she was handicapped by the deficiencies of the kitchen.

June 22, 2014

This was a fun last minute dining experience without any expectation we had an enjoyable very French style meal. We opted to sit just inside as a lovely night and some great music in street. Unfortunately two tables were smoking right in front of us ( outdoor dinning of restaurant) and the smoke blew straight back into restaurant and us. Made it very unpleasant, I do no think there should be... more

Worthy neighborhood restaurant
June 20, 2014

Overall, a very nice experience. It is a small, unpretentious neighborhood bistro. I had the flank steak with frites and salad. It was quite good, but there was no special preparation. I paired with a foulette of St Emilion bourdeax which was average but not overpriced. Ambience was excellent - a place to come for a romantic dinner or a dinner with friends.

Fabulous find in Montreal !!
June 07, 2014

We were so happy to find this great gem of a restaurant. We shared some meals, so got to enjoy the steak tartare, salmon tartare, and the best of all was the duck confit shepherd's pie -- shredded duck confit with a mix of shredded carrots over that, all topped by mashed potatoes. A bit of a "deconstructed" pie for the purists, but fantastic flavors !! The waitress was clearly very busy, but... more

Rustic French Excellence
May 10, 2014

We last ate here in 2008. It was a great find then, and still does not disappoint. It's an intimate but friendly spot, with great "rustic" French cuisine. I had a lamb shank that virtually fell from the bone, and a beef tartar that was a delight. My wife had the confit of duck cassoulet and it also was fantastic. The service was prompt and friendly, but we were never hurried. The intimate... more

My wife and I have dined here 4 or 5 times and have never been dissapointed. We have brought family and friends who were equally impressed. Gamins rivals the best in Paris based on our travels to Paris. On May 10th I enjoyed a cassoulet that was as good or better than what I had in Paris. This place is a real funky place with wonderfully authentic food in a fun area of the city. The staff is... more

Great Night Out

We booked in at Les Deux Gamins, and had a great evening there. The waitstaff was wonderful, (we were lucky to have Benoit as our waiter) the food was great. great food doesn't always a great evening make: if the service and ambience aren't good, it makes a huge difference. At Les Deux gamins, all of the elements came together. We had the terrine to start, then the lamb shank and the cassoulet,... more

We were a bit concerned coming in on a Friday night to a nearly empty restaurant. But, we needn't have worried - the food was excellent, with a comfortable French menu, an attractive, large space, and very warm, engaging waitress. Very pleased with our food, the lamb shank and the grilled salmon, ending with the excellent tarte tatin. There were three active tables during our visit, so we... more

Delicious

My girlfriend and I were at the restaurant for 3 hours. It was a very relaxed environment. Service was impressive considering there was only 1 waiter.
Beef Bourguignon was delicious!!
Chacuterie platter was a perfect start.
Wasn't too impressed with dessert, but the presentation was lovely.
Definitely go back again.

C'est un peu choquant d'être servi en Anglais a l'entrée, surtout si on parle d'un restaurant "Français", a mon avis c'est un restaurant plutôt pour les touristes qui n'ont aucune intention d'être servi en Français, ça m'avais dérangé des le départ.

Arguably the best restaurant of our visit to Montreal. Authentic French food with a laid back vibe. We ate at Baton Rouge earlier and while the food was great there the ambiance couldn't compare to Gamins. Definitely a must when we are back in Montreal.

Amazing authentic French cuisine. Loved the frog legs appetizer and wide selection of French classics. Got the beef stew and was overwhelmed by the perfect flavor. One of the best meals I've ever had. They have a trio dessert option which is nice because you get to try a few things.
