Ma première mais sûrement pas ma dernière visite, dans ce si délicieux et sympathique restaurant! My first but surely not my last visit in this so delicious and friendly restaurant!

Went for a friend's birthday dinner at this artistically decorated restaurant. I ordered the Mac and cheese (that was bland) and the burger that came with potato chips. The burger was very dry and the salad was equally uninteresting. At the table the salmon and...duck looked like better choices. No one ventured to dessert after the main meal. The waiters are great and the place is interestingly decorated.More

We did not know what to expect going to this place and we were very pleasantly surprised. The food was great and the ambiance was out of this world. It's good to see that restaurants are still willing to have (a lot of) fun with...their guests.More

Restaurant is located in a former clothing store, the decorations are "tailored to this" i.e. birds made of shoes, mannequins which have seen better days and so on. Decided for the tapas dishes, a great choice. Dishes are "sharing size". Had seven different tapas dishes,...all were excellent. Would recommend "the charcuterie", huge plate with jambon/ham as well as "Ceviche Petoncle", thin sliced, marinated scallops; both these dishes were "out of this world!"More

The food is classy in a very original and funky enviroment. Service is hilarious, waiters have baby pants on their heads, and put on a humor atmosphere all evening. The decor is very artistic, with it's button mosaic mural, ancient model mannequins holding the door...and kitsh 50's table lamps stuck on the ceiling for a very surpising and lovely shading. There are surprises everywhere you look and the food is delicious. It's a can't miss!More

Great restaurant, very dedicated to the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve neighbourood (they are always participating to the social events). The food is great and the owner very warm. The food is cooked at the restaurant. The only thing is that it is a bit far from anything else,...so either come by car or be prepared to walk a bit.More

The brunch menu is excentric, a bit complicated. The food is great, the staff is diverse and colourful. The setting is unique and fun. Yet something is just not right. it's missing a little je-ne-sais-quoi. Service is (almost too) friendly, definetly not there when you...need it. We chatted and waited a LONG TIME before we had to beg to be served our included dessert. The bill never came, we had to walk up to get it ourselves -- that should be stated if it's their policy. Filtered coffee is - like always - particularly bad. burnt taste at 12:00 noon on a sunday? not really acceptable. My friend tried a café-au-lait in a cup, it arrived COOL and... definetly not the best, it tasted better when they offered to warm it up with the filtered coffee. Gave this place a few tries, it was our last visit - sorry.More

We adored dining at Cabotins. The decor was fabulous, amazing that they were able to purchase all the 1950's tables and chairs, with whimsical elements such as table lamps hanging from the ceiling, a bird made out of a shoe and there is more. The...food was outstanding-the tatin, duck appetizer, burgers, salads, everything we ate. Service was also efficient, friendly and thoughtful. We "closed down" the place and the staff couldn't have been kinder to our kids and to us. Its a a neighborhood place-we chatted with several neighbors who love the place. We will return.More

This restaurant is unlike any other in Montreal. One of the owners used to be a set decorator on films and it shows. The place is based inside an old clothes store and they kept all the mannikins. The menu too is based on that...so the entrees are called cravattes and the dessert Le slip. Instead of a napkin you get a sock...white and clean of course. Table lamps are attached to the ceiling and all the tables and chairs are from the sixties. The food is really good too and definitely worth the visit in itself.More

Nice staff, decor completely different and excellent food. You have to visit at least once and i'm sure you'll fall in love.
