One of the best meals I haveOne of the best meals I have ever had in Montreal! The mix of flavours and textures was very original while very appealing. The service was a bit rushed but still very attentive.12/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the third time IThis was the third time I have eaten here in past few months.

Saveurs sublimes !11/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWent there just before a showWent there just before a show so a little rushed but the staff were aware of our time and did everything to serve us very well. They assured complete culinary enjoyment(if I can say it that way). Suffice to say the food and experience was great and we made the show on time. Definately will be going back soon.11/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA chef (me...) was impressed!!!I'm a chef myself and I love the kind of place where I can be wowed... Mezcla is one of them few... especially when you get a top notch tasting menu for 45$... Awesomely recommended!!!11/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the 5 course tastingWe had the 5 course tasting menu and everything was absolutely divine. When we arrived the restaurant was almost empty but it filled up (on a cold Tuesday night)and the atmosphere got really lively. Audacious, tasty dishes (great ceviche, scallops, duck heart, tongue, porc) along with some friendly service. Highly recommended to all!9/4/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat experienceThe food was great however the portions were small and a bit pricy..
Pleasant atmosphete the staff was friendly however our waiter was a bit abrupt. We still had a great time.
Would recommend to all foodies.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLived up to expectationsWe had been looking forward to trying out Mezcla after reading some stellar reviews and this is definitely a place that's not just about hype. The food was fantastic (such amazing falvours to discover), the service was professional and fun and we loved the relaxed vibe of the place. We will definitely be going back!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLived up to expectations!We had a very pleasant dining experience at Mezcla! The menu was a bit confusing as it was in French/Spanish...but the waiter was helpful at explaing the nuances to us English speakers! Very good wine recommendation. We had the tasting menu and it was a great survey of a cuisine that was not really familia to us. Thanks for a great evening!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM, Great food, service and, Great food, service and a nice wine list. We had the 5 course taster menu and it was great, the only complaint is that the desert fell a little short. My one complaint there was no English menu, I know we are in Quebec but this is Montreal the English city of the province...... Also there was a large party and it was very loud.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMoriginality with a price tagA fine restaurant in an unexpected location.The ambiance is chic but still friendly and casual. Food is excellent and very creative, just slightly too expensive. Same remark applies to the wine list; good choice but with price tags a bit high.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent mealFantastic flavours.. I cant wait to go back... so much more amazing food to try.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it againThe chef and staff continue to impress. We always take the tasting menu and leave the decisions up to the chef. Every bite is an explosion of flavours and textures.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHaven't be this wowed in a whileThis restaurant is an absolute gem. Here is a place where the food tastes and looks amazing, with rich flavours bursting from every dish and leaving you with vivid culinary memories. I have been to a lot of the top restaurants in town, and Montreal is full of great places, yet I had not been wowed like this in a while. I cannot recommend it strongly enough. I'm almost tempted to temper my enthusiasm lest it leads me to be unable to secure a table there ever again... I cannot wait to go back.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!I have had the privilege of having eaten many amazing meals at many amazing restaurants. This meal was one of the best I have ever had. Perfectly composed. Flavours perfectly balanced and complimentary and yet nothing typical or trendy. Quite fantastic. We are from Ottawa but we will be back for sure!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was amazing, greatThe food was amazing, great mix between local products & peruvian cuisine. Great presentation, tasting menu is affordable and service is good (although they tend to fill your glass of water as soon as you take a sip!).6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely and innovative foodLoved the food. My group chose the "special menu" for $49 and tasted a wide variety of items being unfamiliar with the choices off the regular menu. It was a great idea. We all loved the presentation and variety....and the explanations made by our server too. The pisco sours we had to start off with were refreshing and sublime. It is what I consider a pricey restaurant.....with wine, my meal alone was over $80 before tip. So be prepared. I especially loved the Ceviche and the scallops. Can't tell you what they were made with but the taste was delish....will definitely return once I've saved some more money!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a surprise!This little restaurant was a happy place where the food was fresh and so tasty, the service was pleasant and attentive, and the overall ambience, cozy, although a little tight. The menu, all in French, was a little difficult to decipher, not because it was in French, but because it was French WITH Peruvian cooking ingredients and style descriptions. Luckily for us, our waiter was very patient and explained nearly 3/4 of the menu. Our big, or should I say, little, surprise-the duck heart in a spicy sauce, compliments of the chef! We chewed fast and swallowed! We would go back and recommend Mezcla to friends-a great MIX!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMniceGreat experience, great food. Nice service and a lovely restaurant.
The only downside: may have to much dressing in the salad, only tasted that ;(5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMoutstanding!!!Wonderful experience !! Would recommand this restaurant to all my friends and family. Best food ever!!!!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMNew Latin flavour at MezclaOur experience at Mezcla was a knockout experience. We were expecting fresh latin flavours but did not expect the sophisticated integration of south american herbs and spices with les produits des terroirs. The flavour & texture combinations were astonishingly good starting with the amuse bouche of chargrilled duck heart served atop a chipotle cream. Our table of five decided to try out the 5-course chef's tasting menu, which surprised and delighted our taste buds at every course ending with a deliciously rich dulce de leche-avocado ice cream dessert with chocolate nuggets of goodness buried inside. Service was friendly and informative and the wine recommendation was complementary to the meal.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing foodI never write reviews on restaurants but I decided this one was worth the time. I have been to many "hot spots" and trendy restaurants in Montreal. This one was truly special because the food, in my opinion, was one of the most creative and unique experiences I have ever had. Albeit the portions were pretty small but my friends and I opted for the special tasting menu so we were given 5 very unique dishes each and that is why the portions were perhaps smaller then if you order directly off the menu. The textures, flavors and types of foods in each dish were like an explosion of greatness in your mouth with every single bite. I am definitely going to return back to this gem.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBest food of 2013.Dinner at Mezcla was amazing. The food was divine, well balanced with outstanding flavour. Great room, friendly staff. I will definitely eat there again on any future visits to Montreal.
My only negative comments are that we were told that they don't do cocktails..... And then saw some delicious looking pisco sours going by our table when we were 3/4 of the way through our meal.......Epic fail!!!! Apparently they are suggested to everyone, but somehow we were missed. It looked like the staff were having an off night, we were seated by the pass and there was a fair amount of bickering and flayed tempers on display. We were, however, very entertained and these things were minor when enjoyed with such incredible food.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Montreal experienceSecond time to Mezcla this year - did not disappoint. Outstanding food - imaginative layers of flavours-5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is amazing!! so delicious,Food is amazing!! so delicious, tasty, it exceded my expectations!!

Cld use a bit more light so one cld see what they are eating5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMoutstandingWe had the tasting menu. It was totally amazing. I didn't know what to expect from 'modern latin' but I was blown away by the quality of the food and complexity of the flavours. The food was just spectacular and the staff were both knowledgable and very friendly. This is the best food I've eaten in Montreal.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLate-Night FindSuperb in all respects. Wonderful and creative presentation. Superb flavors. Everything very fresh typical of a restaurant with a simple two page menu.
Perfect service. A bit pricey but, hey, you get what you pay for.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA night to rememberWe loved our experience at Mezcla, but the door at the entry needs to be fixed... it was embarrassing to have openned the door and almost broke the glass behind it, to learn afterwards that it was broken. But other then that, the food was great, you have to try the tasting menu.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMezcla WOW!Excellent food, service, and ambiance. Good Ratio price to quality. Nice discovery.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe tasting menu was flawless,The tasting menu was flawless, and reasonably priced. The staff were charming and perfectly attentive.
