  • Grilled octopus & Braised cheek

    Dined on 11/8/2014
    Awesome little find, we were 4 and opted for the "à la carte" experience mainly because it came up cheaper and we can choose what we like! We opted for the Oysters (from PEI and with a surprising soya sauce), Beet salad, Beef tartar, Medjool dates, Sweet potato fries, Wild Sea Bass, Grilled octopus, Lobster mac n’ cheese, Lamb sliders, Braised beef cheek. Everything was good except for the wild sea bass and the lamb sliders which weren't all that special. I was disappointed that the Lobster mac n' cheese was a little spicy for my taste but the MUST DO are definitely the grilled octopus (which we should have asked double portions of) and the braised beef cheek. We were recommended a very good wine (Francis Coppola, BLUE LABEL)!

    The restaurant was close to where we stayed. Love that is was in the heart of downtown Mtl. They were not a lot of space between tables, we asked to be moved cause we were not comfortable where we were sitting. The waiter had a nice French accent and he was very helpful, he gave us an excellent service. The food however was not ok, for the price I expected something more tasteful. I would've been able to do these recipes at home. I took the 3 burger, which didn't taste anything special and the soup (the soup was good) my husband took the restaurant specialty, a mix of seafood and bacon with macaroni and cheese, my husband didn't even finish his plate. The squid in his dish was not even cut and was rubbery (too cook.)

    En général très bien. Les portions sont adéquates. Service rapide et sympathique. Déçue du plat de betteraves et chèvre qui était décrit comme étant une salade et qui n'en est pas une à mon sens à moi. J'ai visité ce restos à plusieurs reprises à travers les années. J'y retournerai pour l'ambiance feutrée et le staff sympathique.

    I liked the casual feel of the place. The food was excellent and there were a lot of different choices (cold, hot, salads, seafood, red meat, etc.), but some tapas were a little bit pricy for no good reason. The scallops tasted like heaven! I wish we have had a different waiter thought. He wasn't exceptional and he seemed to care more about his tip than our satisfaction. But overall, it was great!!

    Furnishings and decor look outdated and in need of repair. Food wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. Service started out good and got progressively worse. Employees were also standing around talking right in front of our table. Given the price range, there are many, many other better restaurant choices in Montreal.

    The restaurant is in a great location in the Latin Quarter. We ordered several dishes to share and cocktails. My drink was very weak, I could barely taste the vodka. The prices seemed a bit steep for tapas. Our waiter seemed to lose interest in serving us about halfway through the meal. Someone else brought the food out - he seemed surprised when we had no utensils to eat the dessert. The french toast dessert was unique and we all enjoyed it. Overall I would say there are better places to eat in Montreal.

    Petoncles was pricy, 19$, for 3petoncles. The grilled octopus was extremely tough, afraid to choke on it. Found that the food was not hot, not even warm, hence not so tasty. I suppose the highlight was the serving of fried sweet potatoes. I ridiculed my boyfriend for ordering such a plate at a tapas resto, nonetheless, in the midst of our six tapas, it was the best pic. Considering i don't ever ever eat fries. It was an experience, however, would not go back. Needs to b more authentic, less commercial. Plates definitely need more garnishing. Add a different spark to plates, after all, we are paying good money. Service is nice. Friendly waiter.

    It was a great surprise that it is a tapas but fusion cuisine. We tasted every that was proposed by the house, it was a suggested menu. The taste is just "au point" perfectly dosage. Servers are nice and attentive. At the end of the meal and the evening, we asked to bring our café on the terrace and it was accepted with a big smile even though we know that it is not our server's zone of service.

    Food was outstanding; took the Theatre menu which was perfect. Chose a Roussillon wine, exceptional with this meal. Service was excellent, personal and professional, welcome very warm. Music was a bit loud but no one else seemed to mind; very comfortable restaurant even if the tables are close to one another, don't feel like we're one on top of the other. Loved the tables with the swings! So Confusion Tapas du Monde seems to have it all, superb food, terrific service, great wine, fun ambiance. Certainly going back!!! ... and we were on time for the theatre!

    My wife and I dined at Confusion for lunch. We ordered 4 tapas items (fries, 1/2 chicken, prociutto platter, and lamb sliders). All 4 dishes were fantastic, with our favorites being the 1/2 chicken and the lamb sliders. The chicken was full of flavor and cooked to perfection, and the lamb was unlike anything I've every tried. Very delicious! I look forward to returning and trying more items!

    Sceptical at first but wanted to try something new. We were not disappointed. The service was stellar and the food very good. We had a dish not to our liking and we told the waiter about the dish and it was taken off our bill without incident. In fact, the owner tasted the dish and found it to be unsatisfactory as well. For our troubles they served us a very nice desert free of charge. We will return with fiends.

  • Valentine's Day Menu for Two
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    The portions for the Valentine's Day table d'hôte were ridiculously small, even by tapas standards. Also, some of the items on our menu left us confused as to their inclusion (hence the name of the restaurant?). FIVE tiny clams in a single bowl of bisque and THREE strawberries for dessert, to be shared between two people? Why not put an even number??? In all, a disappointing first experience. Our supper lasted two hours and we left hungry.

    This was my first time to the restaurant. I was trying to surprise my date with a new place that I hope she had never been. Unfortunately she had been before. The decor and ambiance was interesting and relaxing at the same time. I really enjoyed my meal. The lamb sliders, sweet potatoes fries, salmon tartar was exceptionally good. My date said it was by far the best experience as compared to the previous times she had been. Service was quick, waitress was attentive and helpful to our needs verand questions. I will definitely return.

    Je suis déjà allée quelque fois a ce restaurant. Et cette dernière fois, j'ai été relativement décue par l'ambiance. D'abord, il faisait tres froid. Notre rangée de banquette avions tous au minimum un manteau sur le dos. Et lorsque je l'ai spécifié au gérant s'occupant des réservations, il m'a dit que c'était comme ça, d'attendre que ça se réchauffe...au final, j'ai eu froid tout au long du souper. Le serveur a également oublié de me servir dès le commencement, j'ai donc patiemment attendu 30 minutes avant d'svoir une bière et un peu de pain. Enfin, la suite du service fut excellente! Et la nourriture délicieuse à son habitude.

    We found it a bit pricey (just over $50 per person for light eaters) but the food overall was very good. We ordered eleven tapas for four people and we left just a bit behind. We liked the salads (especially the quinoa salad but the arugula salad was also good and generous). Also very good was the beef cheek and the octopus (the duck and the scallops were less of a hit). Our service was not great (a few mistakes on the food orders and an error in the bill). Also we felt that a vegetable alternative for pita could be provided to go with the humus for the gluten-free (the humus was excellent) but were told that this was not possible. I wouldn't mind going back though it wouldn't be at the top of my list.

    We were looking for something new and at the last minute. After making the reservation an hour before and arriving we were excited, and we weren't disappointed after our night. The ambience was amazing, a place you can have fun while eating. The food was delicious...and will need to go back soon to try the rest of the menu. We had a such a good time we ended up leaving while they were closing up. Definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves food and want to explore their taste palette.

    After waiting for 1 hour to get my hands on the food I had to deal with a quite "special" waiter who explained to me: "the restaurant is busy, we have only 3 cooks and 80 people here" (shocking face) I don't think this is a very professional explanation.... plus After telling him I am gluten intolerant and ask for a dessert suggestion for the second time cause I was making sure I could find something really GF, he said: "I already told you" well, besides waiting too long and having the patience of Dalai Lama, yeah, I would come back just for the food!
