After eating at the sister restaurant next door (Bocata) and thoroughly enjoyed that experience, we decided to have dinner at Barroco. We were warmly received by the staff especially Pascal who took care of us earlier at Bocata for brunch. The setting is beautiful, the cocktails are little pieces of artistic work and the food gorgeous. When I return to... More

We sat at the bar for a cocktail before moving on to our dinner reservation elsewhere and wished we could have stayed for dinner here! Cool cocktail bar and had fun watching the bartender make unique drinks. Prices are high but this is a beautiful spot with a great vibe and excellent service. Can't comment on the food as we...

Been here 3 times over the years and the food and service has always been top notch. On the most recent visit, started with 6 oysters to share along with the crispy Cornish hen as my main. The oysters were so fresh and delicious. The main was also delicious but the restaurant was so dark I could not see what... More

I ate here at the recommendation of our hotel Concierge. Myself and an old friend were looking for a lads dinner with good steak. The experience from Cocktails to dessert was warm, professional, and very positive. The menu is not overly large but between that and the specials it covered all our needs perfectly. Our waitress/server made some excellent recommendations... More

Went for a business meeting here with about 8 people. Service was good but the food was honestly terrible. The oysters we received (zero chef involvement) were fresh and well shucked! Entree was the burrata - essentially a bowl, ball of cheese with some rolls of jamon serrrano, drenched in olive oil. I get the cheese (again not something you... More

Arrived in Montréal with no sleep, a full day of meetings, and wanted my one evening that would not be a business dinner to involve something delicious in a warmly welcoming setting unlike something I could find at home.

At Barroco you can expect to enjoy inspired French Mediterranean fare in a warm and cozy atmosphere. With its dim lighting, stone walls and inspired decor, we offer fine dining that is chic but certainly not stuffy! Our friendly and knowledgeable waitstaff will do everything to make sure your experience is a memorable and enjoyable one. Reservations are highly recommended as our small 45-seat dining room tends to fill up quickly! We'll be happy to speak to you on the phone or you can head over to Bookenda to book a table. Looking forward to seeing you!

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighbourhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic centre of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its centre, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theatre.
