Finally....a waterfront gem
This is a real gem, the first waterfront restaurant in the city of Montreal. We had a wonderful dinner and the ambiance and service were outstanding. I strongly recommend it.

Can be quite noisy....therefore may not be ideal for a business lunch.

Great addition to Nun's Island
Living in Verdun, we don't have tons of great restaurants to choose from near-by, speaking comparatively (ex Plateau, Old Montreal, Mile End, Outremont), so this is a welcome newcomer.
Having eaten at the orginal Enfants Terribles in Outremont, the food is consistent in terms of quality. The service and food were outstanding and the place is hopping. They also really laid out the restaurant nicely with a great view on the river and a terrace that faces the river. We ate at the bar and really enjoyed ourselves. Service was attentive, food was great.
Definitely will return and recommend.

Like Les Enfants Terribles on Bernard, you will NOT be disappointed with the originality, taste sensations and presentation of the food at No.2 location in Verdun. The Mac n' Cheese with Lobster was rich and creamy! (Not for anyone on a diet...) Salmon Tartar has just the right amount of spice to excite the taste buds! Nice twist on the Caesar Salad. The service was actually very accommodating, considering the restaurant was extremely busy, being a Friday night. We were well attended. The ambiance is fun and vibrant. Beautiful view in the St. Lawrence! Loved it! Congratulations on your beautiful new 'Enfant'!

Good food, service a bit lacking
The food is fantastic. The BBQ pork ribs are the best I've eaten and the poudding chomeur is addictive. No complaints whatsoever about the food.
The only minus was that after clearing our main dishes, no one came to ask us whether we wanted something else for a good 20 minutes. After about 20 minutes, we tried to get someone's attention, but it was hard to get it (people just zoomed by or talked amongst themselves). The restaurant wasn't even packed, yet everyone seemed too busy to scan the room for any table that might need something.

J'aime ce nouveau restaurant situé tout près de chez moi et où on mange très bien.

Had to try it to see what was new in town. It was a nice sunny day so we sat outside on the terrace. Food was good, service excellent, staff is very attentive, a bit overpriced for a simple lunch menu. Sangria, didn't taste like Sangria, I have had better. Overall enjoyed our lunch and will come back.

Great 'al fresco' dining
The food is very good, must try the "boudin maison", it is excellent, so is their famous beet salad. The steak tartare is also excellent, and cut with a knife as it should be. Our waiter was only 3 days into his job so he didn't know the menu or the off- menu fare. He also lacked experience in customer service: when we discovered a heavy deposit in our bottle of wine about three-quarters through, he offered to give us 2 glasses to compensate. Problem is there were 3 of us! Fortunately, the owner was there to fix this little problem.
This place is very noisy in the bar area, ask for a table facing the parking lot, the view is not great but at least you can have a conversation.

Expensive but classy and good food
We were 8 adults for supper on a Friday night. Very good ambience, nice decor. The only drawback is the price. Too expensive for what you eat. $150 for two people. A bottle of wine was $42.

Great experience. Will come back!
We had spent a rough day and decided to go change our minds at a nice restaurant. I suggested Les Enfants Terribles since I had heard of it many times and wanted to try it. We were all pleasantly surprised by the area. Love that it's by the water. The terrace is awesome. The food was amazing (although it would be even better if the little piece of bread at the beginning was warm and the butter not cold). The service was impeccable (Genevieve), but there was a problem with the printing machine in the kitchen and never received our dessert (decided to cancel the order and leave after a half our waiting). It was greatly appreciated that the manager came and apologized to us (I would maybe have offered to pay for the beer though at least).

Nice view of the St-Lawrence
One the best restaurant in Ile des soeurs, great service and comfort food.

Great food, refine service
Les Enfants Terribles is a great restaurant with an awesome location. The food was great but sometimes it's not clear who exactly who is serving you as the person taking the order and the people serving the food are different. They will get this sorted out I'm sure, because the owners seem very involved and motivated. So I will go back but I hope they will make these small adjustments.

Great neighbourhood find...
Food was above average - great entrees - fresh and tasty, fantastic lamb burgers, salmon tartar and amazing desserts. A beautiful outdoor patio with view of the river. The bar scene seemed to be pretty hopping too. Reasonably priced. Only complaint...service. Although the waitstaff was knowledgeable and friendly, it took a while to be served - we waited almost half an hour just to get drinks and a menu, but it picked up after that.
I'm sure they are still working out the kinks of a new business, and it did seem exceptionally busy. Was impressed to see the owner Francine greet the patrons, help set tables and make the rounds...will definitely go back.

A Great Surprise
Wonderful restaurant with a fabulous terrace by the river. Easy to park, delicious food, great ambiance and attentive service. A fun time was had by all!

Excellent food, quick service and warm server. I recommend this place for anybody who enjoy quality food.

Nourriture bien présentée, d'excellente qualité, drôle à dire mais peut-être que les portions sont trop généreuses!!!
Service impéccable, l'équipe est de bonne humeur, donc ambiance fabuleuse.

Had brunch here for the first
Had brunch here for the first time with a group of 6. Well decorated and good atmosphere, except some of our group found the chairs (wood, elementary school type) very uncomfortable. Food was delicious especially the hollandaise sauce and the potatoes. fresh fruit for the table is a nice touch. Will definitely be back.

Going back for more
Great food, ambiance is good, service is efficient
Did not take any wine but the selection is good
Probably the best "pâté chinois" I ever had

I went to this restaurant with my girlfriend, and she loved the ambiance. The menu was diverse enough, and what we had (the fish and chips, the bavette) was tasty
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pricey but the food is good
Went there for lunch. The food is good (I took the fish & chips) but it's a little bit pricey (which is normal considering that it's on Nun's Island). The view of the St-Lawrence is very nice.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Les serveurs sont tres attentiones. La bouffe est excellente.

THe decor and ambiance is
THe decor and ambiance is nicer than the original one. What we had was good. The waiters are fine, but could be more attentive. Beautiful view if you sit on the terrasse.

wonderful food... toooo noisy!!
There should be a quiet area of the restaurant, for those who wish to hear themselves think and make conversation.
Food was excellent, however.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Il y avait bien un DJ pour agrémenter la soirée, mais encore aurait-il fallu que la musique choisi soit un peu plus entraînante. Bon choix pour une fin de soirée lorsqu'on veut que les convives quittent tôt, mais il n'était que 22h00 et ça manquait de vie. Pour le reste, tout était bien: belle atmosphère, beau décor, staff accueillant et sympathique et bien sûr très bonne bouffe.

Great view - Fun people
The restaurant is new, and has a view on the St-Lawrence river. I've been there twice, the staff is always very nice and accomodating. Went there once with a 4 years old, and they had beverages for them without problem (milk, juice, etc). No kid menu, though, but they're still very accomodating.
Service was a little slow the second evening, but staff was cheerful.
The food was excellent. Not a whole lot of items on the menu, but some very original ones. I recommend the ribs, perhaps the best I've eaten yet in any restaurant in Montreal.

Was there for a brunch for a second time - enjoyed it as much as the first time - great place.
Will definitely be back.

Great view, good ambiance
Excellent Service, tasty food, no negative remark in mind

Best in Nuns Island
This is definitely the best restaurant meal you will get on Nuns Island and one of the better places in Montreal in general. MB rating 8.

Lunch de copines
Le tartare de saumon de ma copine etait delicieux selon elle et mon hamburger sublime. Beau decor, superbe emplacement sur le bord du fleuve et vaste stationnement pour accomoder le resto. Tres belle addition a l'IDS.

Tout nouveau resto, le serveur
Tout nouveau resto, le serveur avait de la dificulté à décrire les plats, mais le service fut tout de même excelent. Aucun rush pour quitter le resto malgré que nous avons arrêté la consomation, prudence au volant, le serveur a continué à offrir de l'eau sans mettre de pression pour régler la facture.
