About Chez Delmo
Situated in Old Montreal and steps away from the Old Port, this French restaurant established in 1932 makes you feel like you’re at sea savoring the most delicious treasures of the blue waters of the river and ocean. Specializing in fish and seafood, Chez Delmo serves a delicious meal with fresh ingredients. At Chez Delmo, you can choose from a large variety of fish: Dover sole, salmon, cod, sea-bass, halibut, and many more prepared the French way.

Chez Delmo also offers an à la carte dinner and lunch menu. The restaurant's is large and open-aired with a granite bar, the color of which perfectly matches the off-white walls. The mood is very bright thanks to large windows which bathe the high-ceilings of the dining room with light and which offer a beautiful view of the charming Old Montreal atmosphere.

Chez Delmo Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I ate at Chez Delmo last week prior to the Centaur theater. Service was attentive, the wine list interesting, and the menu classic. My meal was extremely good -delicious fish soup with all the extras followed by excellent fish & chips - minimal breading and perfectly cooked fish. Not cheap but good value for the such high quality fish.
This restaurant is a must do in Old Montreal. We wanted a restaurant close to the Westin Montreal. This was a couple of blocks away. Upon arrival we were greeted by the very personable host who gave us a choice of tables for quiet romantic or middle of restaurant with a view of the action. Paul was our server and he was very attentive but not intrusive. Paul was very knowledgeable and helpful as we navigated the menu full of wonderful seafood choices. We decided on an endive salad which was fresh and crisp with a wonderful vinegrette dressing. For an entree we chose the Dover Sole and it was superb. My ding companion has a gluten allergy so the chef changed the preparation for him to accommodate and his was perfect as well. The standard prep served in meunière was moist and delicious. I could go back tomorrow for a total repeat dinner. For dessert, we chose a crime brûlée and it did not disappoint. Paul offered wine pairings to complement the food and that just added to the experience. Definitely a place to come back to.
Très bon restaurant. Le service est au top. La nourriture est savoureuse et bien présentée. Le goût, qualité et la fraîcheur des fruits de mer sont excellents. J'ai été avec ma copine et je dirais que c'est l'un des meilleurs restaurants qu'on a été jusqu'à présent.
Chez Delmo was on our recommended restaurant list from our hotel. The description said essentially that it was a great seafood place; we love seafood so seemed like a no brained. Easy. The ambiance, as it turned out, was the best thing I can say about the place. The waitress was friendly enough but we felt she tried to upsell every chance she had. We asked for 9 oysters, she said what? 12? I asked for a wine recommendation and she picked the most expensive by the glass. Same thing happened when my husband asked about the entrees and again she selected the most expensive dish. All of this turned us off and we haven’t had our food yet. I ordered seafood shell—which was essentially mash with some over cooked scallops and shrimps—for CAD 44. Not worth it. If you’re going to charge me, give me good food, that was not the case with Chez Delmo. The biggest disappointment meal wise on our 6 day trip. For the money, I could recommend all of the other restaurants I tried, and loved, and still save you a few bucks.
Chez Delmo was the perfect spot for my wife and I to dine on our last day in Montréal. The service was incredible, we were able to sample Quebec local cheeses and wines, and the seafood was fresh. I highly reccommend the Coquille de fruits de mer. It was truly on of the finest meals I've ever had. I also reccommend the salmon tare tare. The wait staff were quite accomodating and knowledgable about their meals, wines, and more importantly, ingredients.
A wonderful experience from beginning to end! Perfect Malpeque oysters, delicious lobster chowder. We both ordered the Coquille aux Fruits de Mer and it was superb - lots of seafood in a rich béchamel type sauce, gratinée with plenty of cheese. The base was a small amount of creamy mashed potatoes.
Wine selected was Puilly Fuissé.
With mentioning are the large murals and art works by Carlito Dalceggio, which add flair, colour, and a happy ambience to the restaurant.
The host and our server were exemplary.
Thanks for a terrific evening in Montréal.
We had an octopus appetizer bit tough but good seasoning. The entrees were amazing especially the Waleye so delicious. Though only in town for three nights considered going back the next night ( wish I did) Service a bit slow we waited very low for cocktails ordered before dinner and came after we finished appetizers. The owner manager was extremely apologetic and bought us the round of drinks. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Chez Delmo was recommended to us by friends and we're glad we went. It was one of the best meals we've had. The service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. The price is steep, but it's definitely a place to visit for a special occasion when one doesn't mind splurging. I will definitely eat there every time I visit Montreal.
Nous sommes allés manger là avec 3 amis a moi pour mes 21 ans. Et nous n'avons pas été décus! Le service ainsi que la cuisine furent d'une trés bonne qualité. Je recommande notament la poutine au fruits de mer et la sole. Ce restaurant est une perle pour les occasions nocturnes.
