Thoughts on Restaurant Vieux Port

curiousgeo Apr 19, 2013 02:54 PM

Someone suggested dinner in Old Montreal at Restaurant Vieux Port. I saw a nice photo of some grilled salmon with rice and spinach that looked very good. Any thoughts on a dinner here during a 4 night visit (we'll be staying near Old Montreal). Other possible dinners will be at Moishe's, Au Petit Extra, Da Emma, maybe Stash Cafe. Thanks in advance for your help.

    it's alright. their proteins are fine but the sides are boring. it's reliable.

      Thanks for the feedback catroast. Sounds like an ok place to dine, so I'll keep it on my list as a fall back in case something falls through.

        I used to go sometimes as they had special 3 course meal for $20, a terrific price for Old Montreal area but I dont see this special on website anymore. In winter they use the fireplace so ambiance pleasant and location handy to main area of Old Montreal. I had the salmon and it was fine, sometimes in other restos I find it undercooked. I agree that it is reliable food but not of interest to those who want more adventuresome choices. We liked Le Bremner for seafood and its right across from Marché Bonsecours, you might want to check out menu. Personally I would pass on Stash Cafe.

          I like Stash in the winter when I want some basic Polish food.
          I like La Gargotte as well. Au Vieux Port is pretty basic. Wouldn't waste one of my meals there if you are visiting only for a few days.

      I'd opt for any of your other choices except Moishe's.

        there's no reason to opt out of moishes. i'd skip vieux port because moishe's creams it
