Ile Flottante (former Les Deux Singes)
It's a little unfair to dock one star each for service and ambiance. The setting is fine and suitable, just don't expect fancy. And service was terrific with the exception of the sommelier who needs polish. Otherwise I would HIGHLY recommend this place. Terrific, creative, even daring food. The combination of colors, spices, textures is highly innovative and wonderfully tasty. We've eaten all over the world and this would rate among the top 5. A very satisfying night!
We had an outstanding dinner at Ile Flottante. We chose the 5 course tasting menu at $ 70 and each course was creative and delicious ... lots of interesting flavours and combinations. The wine was very good and reasonably priced . I can’t wait to return !
This restaurant was amazing. Great food and service!
Absolutely spectacular- especially in such a great food city as Montréal
This restaurant is filled with whimsy, in its decor, it’s food, and in the way it interacts with diners. Serious food and a bit of silliness in everything else. Nothing else quite like it.
Best meal of my life! An amazing omg tasting experience with impeccable service. Wish I was in town longer so I could go back!!
Service impeccable. Manger excellent. Un restaurant a retourner.
Pire accord mets vin jamais eu. Une seul plat à été apprécié sur l'ensemble des 6 plats offerts. Les vins n'étaient également pas à notre goût.
Fabuleux, innovative, outstanding service, incredible food.
Incredible food and service. We had the seven course tasting menu with paired wines with starter cocktails. Everything was superb. Highly recommend for a memorable meal and evening.
Not only was the food beyond exquisite, each dish was an absolute work of art. The service was warm and attentive, the bartender was one of the best in Canada, and the atmosphere gently caressed my senses in a way that allowed me to fully enjoy the 11-course fantasy that was put in front of me. I brought my girlfriend here for her 30th birthday all the way from Dallas and I absolutely stand by that decision. In fact, I'd be more than happy to eat every meal from now until the day I die at Ile Flottante.
Where to begin? We returned to Montreal from NYC 2 years after dining at Les deux Singe, one of our favorite meals of all time. Ile Flottante, lives up to and may even supersede our prior dining experience. The staff is courteous, the wine list is vast, the food is perfect. Each dish and the entire meal is well balanced and each dish more beautifully plated and served than the next. The meal was vegetarian heavy and as a true carnivore, I didn't miss the meat at all. Can't wait to return for another amazing meal.
This is my first experience at such a unique restaurant. All of the dishes came with it's own little surprise of flavour and texture. I highly recommend coming to Ile Flottante especially to the more adventurous foodies out there :)
This was the highlight of our trip to Montreal. I can't remember the last time I ate so well, or so beautifully.
Les saveurs et leurs agencements sont créatifs et audacieux. Excellente expérience!
Beyond amazing experience. Excellent service and exquisite food. Will definitely be recommending this spot and will come back.
Delicious! innovative but also tasty food. i don't opt for vegetarian food but even the vegetable dishes were delicious though the best dish was the pork belly! Wonderful service and a beautiful setting.
Ile Flottante offers a fixed 3, 5 or 7 course meal. Contents are a surprise but always seasonal and delicious. A deconstructed eggplant parmigiana and a sous-vide artichoke heart were tonight’s standouts. Having said that, all 7 dishes were excellent. The bartender prepares 3 special cocktails each night, all of which are worth having. For us, he made a special pairing of amari, which were a revelation. A very welcoming place to enjoy the creativity of Montréal’s best chef of 2018.
Un petit hic c’est une musique un peu forte quelque fois.
Autre petit hic est de ne pas laissé le cocktail se terminer avant de débuter le service.
Sinon, c’est une place à recommander et retourner.
Meilleur restaurant en ville pour moi.
Nous en avons fait notre restaurant d'anniversaire.
Everything tasted great. It was the right amount of food with 5 courses.
Really good food if willing to explore since it's tasting menu only. Can only choose if vegetarian or not.
Service was great, plenty of people on hand working the floor and working as a single team on all the tables.
Good atmosphere and music with a warm decor
Favorite restaurant for table d'hôte in Montreal, never disappointed!!
Dans une ville si restaurants incroyable, le meilleur
Exquisite tasting menu & wonderful service!
Simply superb. A most creative chef complemented by fantastic service that is genuinely concerned about your dining experience. If in Montreal, be sure to put this restaurant on the top of your list. You will not be disappointed.
The decor was so so, was a lil pricey butttt the food and service was just amazing..
We had the 7 course menu with the wine pairing. Amazing. Every effort is made to give us a delicious experience. The staff is knowledgeable and eager to give us every details on what we're eating and drinking. Presentation of food is delicate but not pretentious. And the taste. Pure delight. After each service, we figured the next one would be not quite at par with that one. Nope. Consistently surprising.
About half the menu changes every 3 months or so. Don't wait too long. And go with the wine pairing, the sommelier knows her trade.
Best vegetarian set meal I’ve ever eaten. If vegetarian food was always this good, I could give up meat forever!
Unquestionably the best restaurant in the city for foodies. Outstanding creativity and flavour. Not designed for a hurried dinner but for a true dining experience. highly recommended
Outstanding as always! Wonderfully evening spent with family, amazing food and atmosphere!
Very interesting! Didn’t enjoy every course but the service was fantastic and some of the courses were amazing!
Expérience culinaire remarquable. Excellents cocktails et accords vin. Le personnel est attentionné. Très belle découverte.
Très bon service, nous étions assis à côté d'une baie vitrée donnant sur la cuisine ce qui est une vue agréable et intéressante.
En revanche il y avait trop d'ail dans les plats (environ 3 sur 5) ce qui n'était pas à mon goût personnellement. L'accord mets et vin était en revanche parfait.
Fixed price menu, with very creative dishes. We opted for the largest menu, with seven courses. Setting is contemporary casual. Service was a bit slow at times, but overall, a great experience if you're adventurous and willing to try what the kitchen brings to you.
Comme à chaque fois, Île Flottante est une expérience gastronomique extraordinaire.
La qualité et la fraîcheur des ingrédients; l’originalité des plats et de leur présentation; la souplesse pour les restrictions alimentaires; le service chaleureux et généreux; la jolie sélection de vins (la carte recèle plusieurs trésors); le décor accueillant et enveloppant. Bref, tout est réuni pour passer un moment d’exception.
Wonderful ambiance and experience. Bartender Emile was excellent, with very creative and unique cocktails. Service was great and the food was phenomenal: fresh ingredients and unique blends that all came together perfectly. In five days in Montreal, this was the best food we had by far. Will come back and highly recommend.
Délicieux accord mets-vins! Bruyant côté ambiance sonore!
Everything was fabulous! Each course elicited wows, even the amuse bouche! Will definitely go back next time we’re in Montreal.
Fantastic experience. Imaginative and delicious food. Wonderful service. Exceptional.
