Join us here in Montreal for an authentic and warm experience, as if you were in Paris! Sitting on our terrasse, in front of our fireplace at the bar or in the mezzanine, you will enjoy both our decor and the charm of our typical “Bistro parisien”.

We are located on Prince Arthur Est Street, one of the rare pedestrian in Montreal.

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.

It was fine. The menu is quite restricted. My son had the escargots and they were very bland and tasteless. Add some garlic!

Great food
I had the escargot and lamb. The food and service were great.

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!

Authentic French food and wonderful service. Highly recommend, especially when escaping tourist traps ; this is a lovely neighborhood bistro.

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🙂

We were dining here for American Thanksgiving. They offer a delicious menu for the occasion and the place was jammed. We were not seated until almost 10:00pm. The turkey confit is not to be missed - so delicious! And the pumpkin dessert was also great.

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.
