Fodor's Expert Review L'Express

$$$ The Plateau French Fodor's Choice
This iconic Montreal bistro hasn’t changed much since its opening in 1980 and it’s just as well—regulars would throw a fit if it did. Quintessential French fare is fairly priced and appetizing, outstanding even, with dishes like steak tartare with fries, salmon with sorrel, and calf's liver with tarragon. Tiny tables sometimes struggle to accommodate the ever-present crowds (including local chefs, who congregate her for dinner after hours and breakfast before hours) but the lively atmosphere is part of the charm. Kids are warmly welcomed.
