Right in the heart of Montreal, La Maison du Margret is a French-style bistro that serves a variety of dishes inspired by European and Persian cooking. The atmosphere is refined but casual and it's a good place to come and unwind over a meal with friends. La Maison du Margret's kitchen uses only the freshest ingredients in all its dishes and the wine selection is extensive, so there will be something for everyone's tastes.
Meals at La Maison du Margret start with small plates like duck confit and the classic poutine de la maison. There are also set menus that include a range of options like grilled New Brunswick salmon, fettuccine pasta with alfredo and roasted veggies.
My favourite duck confit was at this little Parisian restaurant in a book store, but this place served a duck that tasted very similar. From a nice crispy skin to a perfectly cooked duck...Maison du Magret lives up to the name. Next time we are in Montreal we will have to visit this place again because the experience was almost perfect.
Le potage à la citrouille était trop salé et il semblait y avoir trop d'agent épaississant ( fécule de maïs ou autre) . Le magret de canard était chaud- tiède si bien qu'à la fin du repas il était froid faisant ressortir tout le goût du gras. Les frites allumette étaient trop cuites. Les légumes étaient cuits à point.
Best restaurant I've been in the last years. Simple decor , very present staff (not invasive) and amazing food. Foie gras au torchon is the best I ever had !!!! Magret was perfectly cooked and served with foie gras sauce and french fries with veggies. Short but very good wine list.
Deserts were very good as well : Apple tarte tatin and creme brulée. Even the coffee was excellent, fresh and strong. Overall , I'll give a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
Owner would go around and talk with clients which you dont see anymore. Will certainly go back soon.
Nous avons soupé à la Maison du magret le 14 octobre 2014. Service sympathique, une jeune fille à l'accent à la française qui connaît bien son menu et peut faire des suggestions. L'entrée de fois gras au torchon avec confiture de figues était tout simplement paradisiaque. Le magret ensuite, une cuisson à la perfection, sauce au fois gras servie à part, assiette service avec des frites. Un repas pas spécialement diététique (!!), mais une fois n'est pas coutume.
I have never seen so many ways to prepare duck. The place stayed busy thoughout our visit. The two waiters were a bit overwhelmed. Our four versions of duck were mall unique. The portions are on the larger size. The tastes varied. Over half of our group loved their meals.
If you like Foei Gras, Food from Sud-Ouest in France, go there. Foie gras is very nice and all dishes too. Take a glass of Jurancon with it.
Both my wife and I are fans of Sud Quest cuisine, especially duck. There were no disappointments here. Portions were generous and the magret was just right.
This restaurant is great, my wife and I love it. The food is delicious, and the atmosphere is very romantic. They specialize in duck (hence the title) so most things on the menu will have some form of duck in them. But if you want to experience all the delicious ways you can have duck, definitely try this place.
Good food, but very limited menu. If you are not a duck meat eater, then this is not for you.
Came across this restaurant after dropping off a package at the Canada Post office. Made a quick reservation on OpenTable and shazam !
What's not to like ? Everyone is friendly here, so I hope they do well. The pictures indicating the male and female bathrooms will make you feel all warm and fuzzy.
I had the signature dish, the Magret. The only thing that I would like better is for the duck skin to be perhaps a bit more crispy if possible and the sauce to be a bit thicker (and more sauce wouldn't hurt either).
Lots of restaurants to explore in Montreal, but I wouldn't mind coming back to this one at all.
