Ile Flottante (former Les Deux Singes)
Best restaurant in Montréal! Tes food is amazing and they change the menu often so it's always fun to go and find out what is there new menu. I think they have the best wine menu of the Island...wines you'll never taste anywhere else. If ou haven't tried Ile Flottante yet, your missing out!
They welcome late diners. A big plus for me!
My phone glitched and deleted my long review before it posted, so I'll just give the express-version:
Amazing restaurant. The team's talent shines the entire time.
The food is as visually stunning as it is flavourful... A truly memorable experience to be repeated!
Fantastic experience! Wonderful food, great service and at a reasonable price for this quality. This is Michelin star(s) level dinning.
Do all right. Be wowed! Not to missed! Chef is ahead of others.. will return.
Fantastic food, wine pairing is worth it as well. Service was great. Best dinner we have had in a while.
Definitely one of my best culinary experiences ! A superb discovery.
Overall amazing. Each dish was delicious and unique. Great tasting experience
Amazing. Perfect for a romantic date! The service was outstanding.
Excellent service souriant et courtois. Nourriture délicieuse et présentation soignée. Un délice pour la bouche et les yeux!
Excellente soirée . cuisine très soignée et recherchée. service et accueil impeccable.
Je suis déjà allée dans ce restaurant plusieurs fois. La cuisine est excellente et d'une ingéniosité remarquable. J'apprécie particulièrement qu'ils changent le menu souvent. Ils sont aussi très accommodants pour les personnes sujettes aux allergies.
La seule raison pour laquelle je n'ai pas donné 5 étoiles est à cause de la carte des vins. Le restaurant propose une formule accord mets et vins, qui est très intéressante. Par contre, certains vins étaient un peu trop jeunes à mon goût. Cela vient aussi sans doute du choix de proposer des vins biologiques.
Je recommande néanmoins ce restaurant sans équivoque. Excellent rapport qualité-prix.
Merci! Excellent repas végétarien ou non, nous avons tous apprécié de découvrir chacun des plats et les mariages avec les vins étaient excellent. Le vin orange entre autre: une magnifique découverte!
Le chef est un artiste les plats sont magnifiques originaux et surtout très bons.
Le mariage avec des vins surprenants à découvrir.
Je recommande pour les épicuriens et les gastromes.
Une belle découverte, j'y retourne en janvier déjà réservé
When you receive a menu that just says you have a choice of 3,5, or 7 courses you may be a little apprehensive about the food you will be eating. Every course was a delightful surprise. From the opening trout course with dried nori and 2 side sauces to dessert with vanilla mushroom ice cream! My favorite course was a beet salad with home made ricotta and macerated prunes. This restaurant is not for a picky eater (considering there are no choices as far as food is concerned) I recommend this restaurant highly for those people who love an interesting and delicious meal.
Meilleur restaurant à Montréal ! J adore ce resto sympathique et que dire du service impeccable. Nous étions 6 et tous ont adoré!
Excellent and innovative tasting menu mostly vegetable based.
How can you beat perfection? Each time the food rates 5 stars plus! Stellar taste and presentation but it still manages to remain unpretentious. An absolute gem!
What a wonderful meal. It was creative, innovative and out of the box! Delicious!
Everything was wonderful, a dining experience worth having.
Food was fabulous! Very attentive service. Relaxing intimate bistro atmosphere.
Great tasting menu- we went with 5 courses. A lot of variety in each course and beautifully presented.
Hands down this was the best meal I have ever had at a restaurant. Just go there. Get at least the 5 course tasting menu, and get the wine pairing it is fantastic.
One of the best restaurants in Montreal ! Highly recommend it.
I have gluten and lactose intolerances and the kitchen was very helpful in accommodating the dishes for me.
Un beau voyage gastronomique plein de surprises gustatives et artistiques. Une belle alchimie
The presentation of each menu item was simply stunning. We had the 3-course menu and each had a crafted cocktail. Outstanding! My only negative comment is our entrée was a duck breast that was tricky to cut with a steak knife. Neither of us is a fan of duck to begin with which was a little disappointing. That said, it tasted more like beef and was delicious.
Our second time at Ile Flottante was as fabulous as our first visit. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
The best restaurant you can find in Montreal! Amazing food with incredible service, what more can you ask for?!
Accent sur les légumes de saison, présentation exceptionnelle sans compromis sur les saveurs. Tout était très fin.
Service courtois et aimable. J’ai passé une très belle soirée et me suis régalée.
An absolutely mind blowing experience! The set menu of 3, 5, or seven courses allows the kitchen to focus on artistic presentation as well as mouth-watering plates. The focus is vegetarian, but one of our three courses was a beautiful portion of duck breast. We were also able to substitute our last course, which would have been a dessert, for another vegetable plate, and add the Ile Flotantte dessert as an add-on. The staff was incredibly attentive, but in no way overbearing. Everything arrived in a well paced sequence. Our only other observation was that the music was loud, and prevented us from having a conversation. To their credit, they did turn it down when we asked, but with the acoustics in the dining space, music doesn’t add anything to the ambience. But otherwise, this evening will be a memory that will last for a very long time! Can’t wait to come back!
Very enjoyable unique evening almost like a show with each course and wine introduced by host or server.
Expensive and really a vegetarian restaurant but the food beautifully presented and delicious. So you leave feeling you had a one of a kind experience that you really probably can only afford once a year! Was $300 plus tip for two with the 5 course meal only - there is a 3 course slightly less expensive and a 7 course, even more expensive.
So go if you can afford it - you are treating yourself!
Fabulous food, gracious service , excellent wine pairing suggestions....all in all a wonderful experience. Can’t wait to return.
Très belle expérience culinaire. Chaque service était intéressant, l’accord met-vin tout autant! De belles découvertes. Le cocktail au gin-champignons-café était particulièrement surprenant! Avec un service sympathique.
Service incroyable, vraiment attentionné et professionnel. J’aime beaucoup la formule avec simplement le choix d’un menu à 3, 5 ou 7 services. Délicieux!
Cuisine exquise, decouverte de saveurs et juste equilibre dans les melanges de saveurs.
Un reel plaisir pour les papilles
Un service impeccable
Original mouth watering food. Who would have think of using mushroom as an ingredient for ice cream but it works. Or pairing trout tartar with pumpkin seeds. Or picking beets with beet and sumac vinegars and then pairing the beets with ricotta and nectarine. Add in an affordable wine list filled with private imports and you have a great restaurant that won’t break the budget
This restaurant is spectacular. The dishes are creative, delicious and works of art. The service is exceptional. I cannot say enough good things.
Really innovative and skilled cooking. Delicious and surprising. One of the best places ever.
