OhMyGod, Ms. Local, I am sorry, see what happens when you assume!! Always wrong. Anyway, maybe I should not have used the word "romantic," Kate's use of the word Charming was better. Romantice to me could be anything from a park bench to the most expensive restaurant, so, anyway I found something on this site that looks like a lot of fun, (and maybe even romantic depending on how you look at it) Its Called MYTHOS OUZERIE a Greek Restaurant, the reviewers gave it 4.8, not your candle lit gazing into eachother's eyes type of place (thats for the following night) but they have "infectious bouzouki music" and I am sure we can imagine we have been whisked off to Greece and have fun people watching! Im starting to get excited.... Anne

Kate..I have never been to the 2 restaurants you mentioned.

Anne: Although I have never eaten at Mythos, I did peek in after eating at another Greek restaurant nearby. It was VERY noisy. In my opinion, the Greek restaurants that don't have the dancing usually have better food. There are 2 kinds...the brochetteries..inexpensive, bring your own wine, and the upscale ones that serve the most delicious (and expensive)grilled fish in the world. The King of these is Milos. They are in New York also. Downtown, there is Molivos, and near Mythos is Psarapoulos (we go often)
Faros (I haven't been..more $$, but excellent). On Mount Royal East is Lesbos (I haven't been, but hear good things)and the list goes on.

Hope this helps.

Well! Ms Local, I will have to start recommending Montreal restos to you!
Le Petit Extra is on rue Ontario, I heard about it from Louis who posts here. It was great! a corner of Paris dropped down in Montreal. The food, ambience, service, wine were all excellent! I can't wait to go back and eat there again.
Also Bonaparte for a little dressier more expensive dinner, very nice.
Have you eaten downtown at Bistro Detente? Very good for lunch.
See, ask and I will tell you where to eat! LOL!
And if in case it ever comes up, you can ask me where to eat in NYC..I have been to a few places here too.

I just can't believe how stressed out some people seem to be about dining out in Montreal!

I've been living here for more than 50 years. While I certainly have my favorites, I can tell you that there are literally hundreds of good restaurants in the city. Finding a bad restaurant is very, very hard. I don't know abou this "romantic" thing, but let me tell you that I never had a fight with my wife over a good meal.

Look at the menu, look at the price, look at the decor through the window. If you like what you see, the probability that you will also like what you eat is about 99.9999% (yes that's one in a million odds that you will not enjoy your meal).

Case in point: I was at the Eaton Center Food Court for lunch. There is this new counter just started by 3 young French immigrants (they can't be more than 25 y.o.; they are from Lyon, Rennes and the Périgord). They make the most unbelieavable "tartines ratatouille gratinés" (so good, it's untranslatable) with delicious choice of salad. All that with a drink/juice for 7.50$ Canadian (less than $5 US). Is the Food Court "romantic"? Depends on the company & conversation... ;-)

Yes Louis, a bag of french fries is romantic if you are with the right person, I agree. The reason we are all getting so bent out of shape about this is that, you know, it is a big thing to go out and we want to pick the right place and have everything perfect, we do alot of work and research here for the guys in our lives (kidding). From the info on this forum over the years, I have never received the wrong advice, I cant wait to try the food courts and all that stuff. BTW, the Greek place was all booked out, I got a reservation at "Upstairs" a restaurant and Jazz club, very different for us, but I hope we will have a nice time. Thanks, though, your comment brought me back to reality, I cant believe Im on here at 8:00pm at night, I need to get a life. Toodle Pip. Anne
