We were there for supper on a Thursday. The local is not great, but the service and food are very good. I had the chicken General Tao and my partner had the pineapple chicken. The portions are huge and quit good as well. This a a "bring your own wine" restaurant. I will go back.

First the lady would not come to our table to answer questions. That went on for 15-20 minutes. Then a man came and quickly took our orders. He was relatively nice, friendly but very quick. Then our meals came and well, they were kinda chinese - nothing special at all. Bland food. Then the third person came to assist us... More

I always make a point to visit Echalote at least once when I visit Montreal and have never been disappointed. It is conveniently located on St Catherine's Street just outside the Berri-UQAM Metro station. Food is always fresh and well prepared. The won ton soup is the best I have ever eaten. My favorite entree is the pepper chicken with... More

Have visited several times over the years. Food has been consistently well prepared at affordable prices. Service usually quick and staff very friendly and obliging.

Went in with a friend who works across the street. Nowhere that a visitor to Montreal would normally go, and the quality of the food was lower than I would expect in a comparable restaurant in, for example, Vancouver or Seattle. That said, it was inexpensive and filling and our server was pleasant.

Staying in The Village (Gay Village)

Neighbourhood Profile
The Village (Gay Village)
The rainbow pillars of Beaudry Métro Station shepherd the way into to The Village, one of the largest hubs for gay and lesbian culture in North America. With an open layout and a congenial aura, the refurbished buildings along Rue Sainte-Catherine pay a special homage to menswear and to caffeine, with showrooms and cafes. By morning, the antiquing gems along Amherst Street are packed with collectors. An incredible party spot, The Village comes alive at night, when clubs, bars, and dance halls open their doors and the revelry is high, epitomised by the fanciful trimmings of the apropos Oscar Wilde building. From May to September, the area closes to automotive traffic, allowing restaurant terraces to pour onto the streets, creating a dynamic sense of community. Les Boules Roses, thousands of pink baubles, are hung to welcome in the festivals and celebrations, including Montréal en Arts, Divers-Cité, and the Pride Parade.
