We enjoyed our meal here a lot. We were very nervous when we walked in and rap music was blaring so loud we could not hear ourselves speak, but as soon as we sat down, the music changed to something more tranquil and we were...More

We had an engaging and tasteful time at the bar with Nikki the head bartender - wonderful drinks, hand-touched and personally prepared from her extensive knowledge and discerning palate. What a great time and happy memory from our visit to Vieux Montreal

We could not believe the quality of the buck-a-shuck oysters at Merchant Boeuf. Happy hour drinks were also fantastic. We went back as many days as we could for oysters and drinks while on our vacation to Montreal. Service was also excellent. We can't wait...More

Nadia was a great waitress! She was so efficient in taking our orders (We were a large group of 15). The chicken waffle with avocado was the best I've ever had. Highly recommend.

AAA dry aged Angus Beef, a delicious raw bar, colorful cocktails, live music and the best burger in town-Méchant Boeuf delivers on all fronts. A happy hour fixture, this Old Montreal hub adds a pinch of outlandishness to modern pub sensibilities. It's a fresh spin on post-work unwinding and late-night bites. Montreal's mischievous side never tasted so good!
