I reviewed this restaurant on trip advisor before coming and honestly was pretty stoked about coming. Even with our high expectations this restaurant was unreal. The food, the service and the atmosphere were all incredible. I Would definitely go again.

Bonaparte, located in Old Montreal, is an intimate, charming, upscale restaurant offering delicious French cuisine. The food is always outstanding and the service is excellent. We choose Bonaparte for a celebratory lunch or dinner. We have never been disappointed.

Bonaparte has been a favourite of ours for many years and for good reason. Located in the heart of Old Montreal among cobblestoned streets and interesting architecture, Bonaparte consistently provides exquisite food and attentive, professional service in a charming environment. Highly recommended for special occasions, a romantic evening or a pre-theatre meal.

Situated in the heart of Old Montreal, next to the Centaur Theatre, this restaurant has original French charm and atmosphere. The food as well as the service is excellent and hasn't changed in the twenty some odd years we've enjoyed dining there, either as a couple or when entertaining out of town guests.

Went there for years. Was put favourite place. Accouplé of years ago they lost a number of their waiters all at once. Then they changed the menu. It was still good after that. But the last time we went, the size of the main meal was like an appetizer. The location and ambiance are good. But I think they need... More

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.
