Private Party Facilities:
The first room is the one you can see when you enter the building. With its big garage door who allow you to check on the pedestrian, the room’s disposition gives us space for around thirty people.
The second room is on the same level than our bar. Of course, the bar is a lure by itself, but we will let you judge by yourself the happiness that our fire place give off the room through the long winter evenings. This room, the biggest, welcome fifty people.
Finally is our third room. Located on the second floor, the mezzanine will charm everybody as much in the winter than in the summer. The mezzanine tower the pedestrian. The two big garage doors, luminous before the sunset, open up totally to benefit the air flow when it’s too hot outside, but also will allow you to enjoy watching the snow through the windows when it will be cooler outside. The maximum capacity of the room is thirty people as well.

Les Deux Gamins Ratings and Reviews
We made a very late last-minute booking for five for New Years Eve, when all the other 'recommendations' were totally booked and unavailable at any time. That made me nervous, but Les Deux Gamins turned out to be a real discovery, and we definitely will be back the next time we visit Montreal. The service was very friendly and the ambiance is the perfect neighbourhood French bistro vibe. My duck was a little chewy, but the food overall was excellent, and the steeped-in-garlic Spanish-style escargots perfect. We loved it — me especially, because it was my job to deliver a New Year's dinner for four American visitors — and Les Deux Gamins made me look like a totally plugged-in aficionado of the Montreal restaurant scene. Thank you for that! Au revoir!
This "bistro" is aptly named based on the menu it provides--classic French dishes that your grandmother might have made if she were French. But although the menu is classic, the cooking is very modern. An elegant mixture of classic and nouvelle in a fashionable setting. I had the holiday menu with the magrait de canard--it was great! One of the few restaurants opened on Christmas eve and Christmas day. I ate here two years ago, thought it was great, and was happy to come back. I'll look forward to coming back again in the future.
We went for Christmas Day Dinner. They were swamped and only had a few servers but everything was pretty great. The food is very good here for the price. Interior is very cosy, Parisian cafe vibe. Tables are a bit smaller (cafe style) but they have seats with larger tables for groups. We had a wonderful meal and would love to come back.
Wonderful ambiance, looks like a French bistro. The waiter was attentive and creative in suggestions on how the two of us can combine our courses. The food is typically French bistro fare and very good!
Come early if you want a quiet ambience. After 7 PM and it can be a more buzz filled! Maybe it was because it was Christmas eve🙂
While in Montreal over the US Thanksgiving holiday, we were looking for a restaurant serving Thanksgiving dinner, and found Les Deux Gamins. They were serving a fixed Thanksgiving menu all evening. While not exactly like Grandma used to make, the meal was well prepared and presented, and the service was just right. There were several groups and other couples, but noise was not excessive. This is truly a French bistro - the talbles, the decor, dining on three levels - and made for a memorable experience. Too bad we were leaving the next day because I would have liked to try the restaurant again with their regular menu.
I have been here twice now for my birthday on the recommendation of a friend. Both times I have great service and meals. Very friendly staff who were happy to speak English, or put up with my bad French. The food is flavorful and fresh and very enjoyable. I recommend the lamb dish
We were in Montreal for a couple of nights so we gave this place a try. Charming location, excellent food, and awesome service. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience in Les Deux Gamins. Special shout out to the staff! We felt really well taken care of.
My wife and I shared the 'Butchers Cut' steak - it was enormous! We absolutely enjoyed it, but it was a lot of food for 2 people - probably more comfortable for 3.
We sat outside to eat, and there was some improvised live music going on in the courtyard nearby. Overall, a charming experience with good ambiance, great food, and excellent service. We would definitely dine here again.
The food was pretty good (warm goat cheese was fantastic) but the service was terrible -- an hour to get our salads, then another hour to get our entrees, then another 45 minutes to pay and leave -- and none of the staff was remotely apologetic about it. Outdoor seating is nice, but compared with the other restaurants nearby, this place is nothing special.
Enjoyed a fantastic meal. They also generously accommodated our youngest eater (7) and made him a pasta dish he loved. Wonderful ambiance further enhanced by being located in a pedestrian walkway. Parking is a little bit of a challenge. Can't wait to go again when we are next in Montreal.
Meal was good! Ate duck confit and my friend had cheese capelleti. Both well done but portions were WAY TOO SMALL! I was hungry after the meal was over, and ended up dipping the complimentary bread (which was served late) in my friend's pasta sauce... snacked more at home.
This lovely authentic French bistro delivers beautiful classics on the plate. The confit de canard was wonderful, high quality ingredients and carefully prepared. The service was helpful, personal and knowledgeable. All of this at a great value. We will definitely return.
