The food is wonderful with a good selection, the service is great and the place is cozy and pretty. The prices are reasonable and how nice that you can bring your wine. It is right in front of the metro which is very cool.

A jewel of a restaurant with excellent food, freshly bought and prepared by the Chef Natassia who, that night personally took care of us with fabulous dishes like Escargot with a delicious garlic parsley butter sauce topped with melted cheese! Heavenly! The pasta dishes are delicious! An added bonus is the fact that you can BYOB so it's very economical... More

So happy we found this place! Had a very fun time here, really enjoyed the ambiance. I got the pasta of the moment and my partner got the cote de boeuf, both delicious. Can't wait to come back :)

Machiavellian définition: clever and dishonest. What a perfect name for a very dishonest, inept attempt in preparing food. This restaurant was the worst food I have ever tasted in my life. I actually didn't,and couldn't eat the food, literally. It's unbelievable that a restaurant owner would have the courage to serve such "food" and charge money for it. I had... More

This man didnt pay for his meal. We acknowledged his dissatisfaction and offered him anything to compensate. We have a 10yr proven track record and always address the concerns of our clients. Don't be mislead by this obvious attempt to discredit our integrity. We put our clients first. More

I had previously attended a large group dinner, but this time it was a party of 4. Menu changes daily and your meal is individually prepared, so all is fresh and tasty. Some unusual combinations of ingredients work very well. Great place

We held our wedding at Machiavelli, and could not have had a better experience. The chef, manager, wait and kitchen staff were so kind and accommodating of all of our special requests. The staff set up the terrasse for the ceremony (chairs, light strands, tables) and even decorated the inside of the restaurant for our event. We had the cocktail... More

Restaurant was closed for our private gathering. They did a great job with their group menu and were willing to work to accommodate diet issues and other requests. They managed to serve an "active" crowd that was constantly moving around without problems. Small staff was extremely efficient and polite. Food was excellent and varied in taste and presentation. Price was... More

What we ate was good to taste but escargots we can easily do better at home, duck was way overcooked, bouillabaisse is not anywhere close to what you expect (they serve a piece of fish with broth). As for service, inexperience shows.

Cute little place, a bit draft in winter....we had friendly but oh so slow service here....and when our food finally came I felt so disappointed. It tasted like a home cooked meal....nothing gourmet or inspiring....and when I say home cooked...I mean bland and uninteresting. I expect to be more dazzled in a restaurant...brussell sprouts and beets are not my favourite.....desserts... More

Machiavelli offers creative cuisine with an always changing menu, we go there several times a years and never got bored, In the summer the terrace is quiet and romantic, in the winter the ambiance is warn and welcoming.

Staying in Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialised Montreal, the factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have been renovated into homes, museums, and small businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge galleries and an ever-expanding network of restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the Atwater Market, where outdoor stalls sell fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat, street vendors have menus of hot fish and wine, and the indoor market offers chocolate, breads, and coffee beans. Dominated by the gentle waters of the Lachine Canal, Le Sud-Ouest is still very much an outdoor town, with a number of pedestrian-only bridges traversing the waters, bike paths along the canal with views of the Leisure Boats, and massive green spaces like Angrignon Park to stop for a picnic, or to play a sport.
