        If you're interested in delicious fish with a Middle Eastern flair, I highly recommend Poissonerie Rayan. They have two locations but I've only been to the Cote-des-Neiges one.

        You line up and choose your seafood from a vast array of very fresh whole fish, filets, shrimp, calimari, and more. You tell them how you want it - depending on the type, it can be grilled, baked, deep fried, from what I recall. You can get small or large sides of fries, a really nice salad, or a tasty rice pilaf. They give you a number that you take to your table, and then your food arrives. Scrumptious. Gets busy at peak hours. Well worth a visit. Service is efficient but the place is not fancy, so if you're looking for something on the fancier side, this isn't it.

          I've had really bad service issues at Rayan (the CDN one), enough to prevent another trip there.

          APDC offers fresh, seasonal fish, and it's generally pretty good. Kitchen Gallerie Poisson in Old MTL may be what you're looking for, as well.

          More upscale, there's Milos, on Parc, (Greek seafood) and Ferreira Cafe on Peel (Portuguese) or its sibling at Place des Arts, F Bar.

            Rayan is not really a restaurent. It is a fishmonger that will cook your fish and serve it to you in a room that looks like a restaurent :) The fish is fresh, it is expertly cooked but iIf service is a priority, go to one of the places that davekry mentions.
