This gem has the appearance of an electronics store. Once inside however, your greeted with very kind staff, inclined to treat you to a comfortable evening with only the tastiest dishes and a willingness to accommodate dietary restrictions (even though you won't find this info available on the website). The wine list is a healthy compilation of the finest available.

We were extremely lucky to land a table at Bouillon Bilk with no reservation - we were nearby, I said let's try and to my utter shock, they had a no-show just then. It was, hands down, one of the best meals of my life. Just go. You won't regret it.

Watch out for the civic address because the outside facade will fool you. It looks like you are entering an electronics store from the outside. Inside is a white out. Very simple and clean design. It's all about the food! The scallops are the signature entree and they are excellent and highly recommended. I've always thought that a scallop is... More

The restaurant menu is excellent. The service is fairly good. The major downside to Bouillon Bilk is its location.

I always eat here when in Montreal and this last trip I had both lunch and dinner here. Excellent service and the food is still brilliant. Highly recommended.

We didn't have a false note during our entire meal at Bouillon Bilk. The staff was accommodating of a late-ish change in our reservation, and we were greeted with so much warmth by everyone we came in contact with, including our knowledgeable server. The tasting menu was inventive yet approachable, and the flavors were out of this world dish after... More

Bouillon Bilk is consistently ranked near the top of Montreal restaurants at Tripadvisor -- and we were not disappointed. Although surprised by the TV repair sign above the restaurant (we had to check and make sure we were at the right place!) -- everything else was better than superb. Perfect service (attentive but not hovering; friendly and nice); beautiful presentation... More

Staying in Quartier des Spectacles

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier des Spectacles
The bar-none entertainment district for music and arts, Quartier des Spectacles is an interactive playground that delights the senses. It totals over 30 performance halls, with the vibrant Place des Festivals at its heart. The outdoor event space features glowing towers, glass edifices, and granite-lined bike paths, and hosts annual festivals, concerts, and comedy nights. The cinema, theatres, and exhibition centres are entwined with external art projects, exemplified at Montreal's Contemporary Art Museum and appearing along every walkway of the Promenade des Artistes in the form of sculpture and public works, from digitally-enhanced swingsets to glowing fountains. Design, performance, and alternative music come together here, a stone's throw from the lively Latin Quarter along Rue Saint-Denis, the quintessential after-party spot for dinner and a drink following a day of jazz, poetry and play.
