Description: At Restaurant Le Bourlingueur, fish and seafood are among the highlights of this fine eatery, with poached salmon, the house specialty, occupying the place of honour. A visit to this charming establishment in Old Montreal will also "net" a gracious ambiance and a mouthwatering table d'hôte. For those who prefer non-seafood delicacies, other specialties are also available.

Rue St. Paul is one of Old Montreal's tourist magnets, so visitors have many dining options. We ate at Le Bourlingueur on a recent Friday evening and found it a charming place with good food and excellent service. The menu is mostly a la carte, but for an extra few dollars you can get salad and dessert along with the main course. The decor is basically that of a traditional French bistro, which may be the reason that a scene from a movie set in the 1950s was filmed at Le Bourlingueur the week before our visit.

They offer 3 course meals at great prices, as well as a la carte. Staff are friendly and speedy and the decor is welcoming. Their wine list is also affordable. I had a delicious 2 course meal with a glass of wine for under $30 before taxes. Well done.

It was ok. Nothing to write home about or rave over.

The food choices are few and the portions are small for the price. With that said the waiter was pleasant, the food came quickly and it was hot. The setting was intimate but the bathrooms were awful.

The best part of my meal was the sugar pie that I had for dessert.

Walking along the Rue St Paul, this looked like a good place to stop for dinner. The restaurant is welcoming but the wait for service and food were interminable. The dishes when they finally arrived were rather underwhelming, pretty tasteless and seemed rapidly thrown together. And it was not as if the restaurant were super busy where they needed customers to cut them some slack.

Overall, they really need to up their game if they are to compete with the other excellent places mere footsteps away.

We were traveling with a group and this was a pre arranged dinner. The food served was not what we had chosen from the menu earlier in the day. All in all everything tasted bland, and unseasoned. I feel that since we were a tour group that not as much effort was put into the preparation and service of our meal. Group rate or not, the same care and attention should be given to every customer. If your menu states sausage with potatoes, please serve it that way. If I wanted macaroni noodles, I would prepare them at home. The pork with mustard sauce looked and tasted more like tuna casserole, again with macaroni noodles. When I return to Montreal, I will not visit this restaurant again and cannot recommend it.
