We've enjoyed our first visit to the Balneo.
The menu proposes a wide variety of meals.The ingredients are well chosen and prepared.
The staff is very attentive to their guests requests.The safety measures in this particular Covid 19 context are well explained to the guests as soon as they enter the restaurant.
The prices are fair and we definitly recommend the Balneo.

We had not visited Le Balneo in quite some time and we were amazed anew on the quality of our meals. The crab cake entrées were simply yummy. Three of us had moules frites, three different ways, and each one was delicious (not to mention that the mussels were huge). A fourth ordered a pasta dish that was just perfect. We will be back more often for sure!

Nourriture absolument délicieuse. Espace de circulation petit par contre, la serveuse m’accorchait chaque fois pour se rendre aux table plus loin. La dame derrière était assez imposante.

Ça été très long après l'entrée pour avoir le plat principal malgré que le restaurant n’était pas plein.

Endroit super par contre. Bonne ambiance, serveuse souriante, nourriture exellente et prix adéquat.

Food and service were great but it was very loud! They should have mentioned To us that there were 2 groups of over 10 people. It is a very small restaurant . It was noisy and we felt trapped at our table.

Première expérience au Balneo. Dans l'ensemble l'expérience est correcte compte tenue du prix. Nous étions prêt à faire des découvertes, mais la cuisine est plutôt convenue. Les portions sont à mon avis trop généreuses et il manque le petit plus de finesse et d'originalité.

Les entrées de tartare au bœuf, et de chèvre chaud étais bonne, par contre le sauté de crevettes et pétoncles au Pernod étais a mon avis bien plus savoureux. Somme toute, l'expérience commence bien. Comme repas principal, le filet de morue noir était très savoureux, mais les légumes, le riz et la salsa méditerranéenne se confondaient sans éclat. Ma conjointe a commandé le poulet noirci qui était somme toute assez bien, sans être remarquable. Le dessert, un mi-cuit au chocolat servit avec crème glacée, avait comme principale qualité encore une fois d'être servi en portion généreuse.

Les cocktails sont bien exécutés, la carte des vins offre une belle sélection, particulièrement dans les vins rouges. L’accueil est courtois, sans être chaleureux et le service efficace sans être soigné.

En conclusion, nos attentes étais probablement un peu trop élevés suite aux évaluations. il s'agit d'un restaurant honnête, probablement légèrement au dessus de la moyenne, mais ce n'est pas une expérience gastronomique. Je donne une note globale entre 70 et 75%. J'y retournerai très certainement si l'occasion ce présente, mais ce n'est pas un coup de cœur.

Yum! Another wonderful date night at Le Balneo.

This time, I tried their raspberry mojito (amazing) and enjoyed several items from their tasting menu.
To start, I had a brocoli and nut soup that was to die for, along with a peanut butter dumpling starter. I don't think I took a breath between mouthfuls! Delish.
As my main, I had a combination of the following: lobster cakes, baked goat cheese, and beef tartare.
Every single item was flavourful and savoury. The presentation was also very nice.
Nice to look at and even better to eat!

Our waitress, I wish I remembered her name, was also great. She was very attentive and happy to recommend the tasting menu. I would have missed this option without her suggestion and would have ordered all of those items individually. Thankfully, she was there for us, or we would have had a lot of leftovers!

Un des meilleurs petit resto à l’Ouest de Montréal. Malgré le bruit assourdissant des autres clients, nous y allons régulièrement (4-5 fois/an). Nous n’avons jamais réussi à obtenir une soirée ou le niveau de bruit est agréable.
La nourriture est correct mais inégale entre les plats. Certaines entrées sont excellentes, d’autres moyenne. Certain plats sont simple et manque de goût (table d’hôte de crevette & pétoncle), d’autres très bon (leurs salades avec extra viande, comme du canard). Belle carte de vin.
Nous ne restons jamais pour les desserts ou café... trop bruyant.

Bonjour,
Tout était très bon, par contre, le tartare de saumon goûtait un peu trop le sesame, est-ce que l’huile de sésame est utilisée? À vérifier. Tout le reste était très bon et très bien! Merci à l’équipe! 💚💙

My experience at Le Balneo was a little bit disappointing this time around.
Having visited this fantastic restaurant multiple times, our previous experiences are the basis for the following review.

As always, the cocktails were well made and the ambiance was wonderful.
I ordered the peanut butter dumpling entrée (delicious) and decided to try the Asian stir-fry with beef.
I asked our waitress what she thought of this dish and offered her a list of previously enjoyed plates for some expert guidance. The Asian-stir fry was highly recommended.

Unfortunately, the dish itself was not served as described.
"Assortment of vegetables sautéed with ginger, basil, and oyster sauce served with vermicelli and roasted sesame seeds" - I added the beef bavette for some extra protein.
To my surprise, this dish was plated in a way that is comparable to a Tonkinese soup.

The flavors were lost in what seemed to be too much broth and the vegetables tasted like steamed veg, leaving much to be desired.
As a lunch meal, this would have been warmly welcomed, had a ordered a soup.

This was my first negative experience with the cuisine here.
We will definitely go again but I will not be trying the stir-fry a second time !

My spouse and I have dined at Balnéo infrequently over the past 3 years, but we always leave there satisfied and impressed.
Martine was our wonderful host yesterday; she went above and beyond to make sure our experience was nothing short of perfect.
The mixology is on point with well presented drinks and a diverse selection to appeal to all. If you prefer wine, their list is extensive and thoughtfully chosen.

I enjoyed a peanut butter dumpling entree following by butter chicken served with fresh naan and rice. My spouse enjoyed blackened salmon. Both delectable!

Looking forward to our next visit.
Thank you for the great dining experience.
