We asked for half a bottle of Le Brun arak. They brought it in a caraf so we couldn't know it's not Le Brun and they charged it 90 CAD. We were 2 persons. We just asked for 4 plates : kebbe nayi, batata harra, baba ghannouj and fattouch. We paid 283 CAD. This was too expensive. Otherwise the food is very good and the music very nice.

My friends and I had a fabulous dinner on Monday night. Sam was singing (he sings on Monday and Wednesday nights), and he was divine! Tyler was our waiter, and he was a gem. So knowledgeable about the restaurant, the menu, the area in general, and had lots of tips for our trip. The lamb cavatelli and mushroom risotto were amazing. You must go!!

About the restaurant
The story of GATTO MATTO

A revolutionary and Avant-Garde Art Deco concept with a flower bar theme that is a fusion between Chicago and Italy. Using premium materials designed and manufactured in Montreal, the elements marry themselves wonderfully. Bright and vibrant colors give a WOW factor that will make you feel like in a modern Milan hotel. The creation of the open kitchen concept never seen before in the Montreal area allows you to see the best chefs in the region at work.

Gatto Matto’s avant-garde and modern Italian menu was developed by our talented chef, Ara Ekmekdjian. This multi-dimensional chef first studied the art of classical French cuisine under Richard Bastien at Lemeac. He then focused his attention on perfecting his Italian culinary skills at Beatrice. His desire to master his craft later led him to join the creative team at Le Chien Fumant, where he worked tirelessly to achieve the rank of Chef de Cuisine. We are pleased that he has found his p

The ambiance of this place is great, music isnt too loud so you can still carry conversation. The food is really good, but I will say the service is just okay. Nothing incredible but not bad either. Felt as though we received bare minimum treatment probably because we were a young group. Would definitely come back though!

About the restaurant
The wine has a unique and mystical quality: unlike most other drinks, it gets better as it gets older. No one can elaborate exactly what the end results will be – the wine is constantly evolving. So there is a bottled surprise to discover. Monza has been a household name for over 10 years with its wine bar. The wines on sale are from all over the world. Whether it’s a bottle of wine or champagne, local or international labels, quality and affordability are always on the menu.

The service was amazing; however, I did not like the fact that they rushed us because they overbooked. Hence, only allowing us 2h for a birthday celebration.

About the restaurant
8oz of ground chuck from 100% fresh never frozen Certified Angus beef



Our meat comes from prairie-raised cattle that feast on dry wheat and pasture. The meat is then aged to achieve a superior quality of marbling and guaranteed tenderness. Not only is it tasty, it's healthier too. That's how we offer exceptionally tender, tasty and juicy meat that you want. There is no better beef than the one served at the Beauty and the Beeeef!



EAT, DRINK, AND TASTE IT!

About the restaurant
Nestled in the historic multicultural complex of New City Gas lies Bazart.

Conceptualized in 2021, Bazart is a Mediterranean Oasis that allows guests to feel transported away from the city of Montreal and into a realm where the essence of the Mediterranean comes to life in every detail. Bazarts’ allure was designed by the talents of artists and artisans, creating an atmosphere which invokes an enchanting ambiance for all those around.

It’s our passionate team of chefs who brought to life the realization of our unique sharing-style menu. Drawing inspiration from Mediterranean cuisine, Bazarts’ menu incorporates an array of traditional dishes from various cultures meticulously chosen to provide an elevated culinary experience. Accompanied by one of our handcrafted cocktails or mocktails, these flavors come alive on the palate, allowing for a full circle culinary journey.

Bazart invites you to bask in the embrace of the Mediterranean, right in the heart of Montreal.

Great atmosphere. The resident DJ is awesome. Food was quite good, lots of options but the servings are small as it is tapas but the price is slightly high. Still a must visit.
