Very cozy spot in Villeray. Staff was very friendly & very knowledgable & passionate about the menu. Ordered a variety of platitos calientes & they were all very good. The Iberico pork with tomatoes & the Shrimp brochettes were the best.View more

Je suis impatiente de revenir & de profiter de la terrasse dès le printemps & re déguster ces superbes plats (& cette merveille de crème catalane qui me rappelle mon enfance !)View more

The food was soggy... (that's not a compliment) We ordered some calamares bravas it tasted like it had just sit in the kitchen for 30 min in the sauce. Also tried the Paella... same issue. What makes a Paella great is the little overcook underneath. We also tried the churros & well this time they were way overcooked. In general, this restaurant should not consider itself "spanish" or "spanish inspired" its a real shame.View more

Great service, wine & atmosphere, but food is at most ordinary. It was my second time there, but the last one unfortunately.... & I'm not that difficult. I love simplicity in food, but nothing was really carried out well, & I had the same experience the first time.View more

Update: Nous sommes allés par hasard pour le novembre Montréal avec Une sélection plus restreinte de nourriture à un prix fixe 52 $ par personne. Encore une fois, tout était solide & Sympathique. Toujours un classique dans le cartier. Bon service. Bon vins. Drinks bien fait. Ambiance chaleureuse. Le gravlax de truite, les calmars & les cocas ( qui sont plus généreuses en portion qu'avant ) sont super bonnes. La pieuvre aussi. Le menu dégustation dégustation 65$/pers. sans vin est très bon. Un go to pour nous.View more

I passed by here so many times & it was on my list. The food is ok, nothing extraordinary. Some of the seafood was overcooked. However the service is really lacking. 1. We asked for help to choose a glass of wine. The response was "we have 6-7 options". This is already obvious from the menu. So no further explanation until we ask specific questions about each wine. Compared to other restaurants in Montreal, this kind of response was a first. 2. After we ordered the food, the waiter pulls the menu from my partner's hand without even asking. 3. While the waiter is talking to the guests at the next table, she takes away our wine glass without looking at us or our table. (I.e. without interacting with us) 4. We got bumped multiple times by the waiters while we're eating. Half of the time there's not even an apology. I understand that the space is tight but when it happens repeatedly, it starts to interfere with the dining experience. I first assumed that the waiter must be having a bad day first but these things keep piling up. I've been to Tapeo before & never had such a service. Really disappointing for a restaurant at this level.View more

Tried this place because of mtlatable! Great price for a 3 course dinner. The appetizers were great, the mains were lacking slightly (a bit too salty/overcooked), dessert was a highlight. The bartender was great, very accommodating.View more
