Ile Flottante (former Les Deux Singes) Ratings and Reviews
The team at Les Deux Singes de Montarvie has always served up some of my favourite meals ever. To say I was excited to try their new incarnation, Île Flottante, would be an understatement. And they did not disappoint. A beautiful tasting menu in a gorgeous new home. Chef Sean has continued to hone is already incredible craft of delighting the palette with an array of gorgeous, fresh, edible art. It’s so wonderful to see the team together under a newly renovated roof continuing to do what they do: experiment, create beautiful dishes and have fun! Can’t wait to go back already!
Un des meilleurs restos que j'ai essayé depuis fort longtemps! Tout était goûteux, délicieux et tellement bien présenté....toute une expérience! En plus, le service est convivial et professionnel. Quelle soirée!
À retenir et à référer sans faute!
Ile Flottante is one of my favourite restaurant world while. It's pricey but totally worth. A foodie paradise, creative cuisine, authentic and modern design. For special occasion or for a lovely evening or lunch. Ile flottante is the perfect place to be in the moment and take the time to enjoy!
We ate here for my husband’s birthday. We selected their 5 course tasting menu. We didn’t know what we were going to be served. Each dish that we had was absolutely delicious and beautiful. I loved how relaxed we felt. The waiters allowed us to enjoy each dish and don’t come by every minute to ask how everything was. I appreciate that. I’d come back for sure.
Our first experience this year was when restaurant was still named Les Deux Singes.
We were pleasantly surprised that Ile Flottante is just as wonderful. There is a reason why this restaurant is rated number one in Montreal. If you are looking to have an incredible dining experience then Ile Flottante is a place to visit. We highly recommend getting a wine pairing with your meal as the wine choices complemented each entree perfectly.
Each course is a bit too large. The food was quite impressive in the first bite, but we were fatigued midway for most dishes, as the flavouring is quite strong.
The waitress casually left the clothes on the floor as she was hanging them one by one. You would not want your expensive jacket/scarf to sit on the ground of a busy restaurant I suppose.
The ambience was quite crowded and noisy. The background music was quite loud considering it as a restaurant for fine dining instead of a pub.
The quality-to-price ratio is quite high though.
Deux Singes was one of our favorite restaurants and its new incarnation, Ile Flottante, does not disappoint. It is not only beautiful but cozy. And in our opinion, the food is possibly the best in Montreal enhanced only by the beauty of the presentation. It is always an exceptionally pleasurable experience and kudos to the creative geniuses who make it so.
normally each meal here is outstanding from my past 4 visits, but this time the flavors were not complimentary, tastes weren't as complex, and overall kind of disappointing. The complimentary initial appetizer and the fish were good... When menus change a lot this can happen, hope next time is better!
I would compare Iles Flottantes food to Baroque music in the sense that there is an effort required to enjoy the meal, subtle nuances of taste, texture nothing that will jump in your month but a wonderful harmony. One thing maybe get more comfortable chairs.
What can you say about Ile Flottante, Sean (the Chef) remains Montreal's best. Their version of a caprese salad, the halibut, the duck stuffed ravioli and the dessert were simply outstanding. The wire pairing were perfect. The value is outstanding. The same food would 2x anywhere else. Hurry up and book your table. I cant wait to go back.
I knew these guys from Deux Singes de Montarvie. I was excited to go back.
What an awesome experience. The food was marvelous and the service was impeccable. Options for 3, 5 or 7 course meals is much appreciated for those with smaller or bigger appetites. Love the new decor and will be back.
Thank you for sharing your passion of food with Montrealers! ;)
So happy to see the crew from Les Deux Singes de Montarvie back at it! We went to l’Ile Flottante on their first opening night and everything was awesome. The new formula, with a choice of a 3, 5 or 7 course tasting menu, is a great idea and the price is totally reasonable. The food was delicious and the service, as always, super attentive and friendly.
We’ll be back!!
Good food, good service, even though we were not offered coffee / tea after the meal, even though it was included in the price. The restaurant is more casual than I expected as I had made a reservation believing it to be a fancier place for an anniversary celebration. T
Fantastic experience! Was a huge fan of les deux singes and I’m so pleased that they carried over their unique style to this restaurant. We got the full course menu and it didn’t disappoint! Excellent cocktails and an impressive wine list. Wonderful flavours, textures, and amazing presentation, I’ll definitely be going again soon!

Ne manquez absolument pas cette petite "boîte magique"!
My boyfriend and I went to les deux singes de montarvie when we were passing through Montreal. We were looking for a high quality restaurant and a romantic evening and les deux singes de montarvie surpassed our expectations. The restaurant is quite small and has a cozy feel. There are about 10 tables and some space at the bar. The meal has a set menu of 5 courses and little on the expensive side, but worth every penny! There are 3 options of about $60 CAD.
One option with meat, one with fish, and one vegetarian option that is slightly cheaper. The menu changes, so I would suggest checking the website for the up-to-date menu. The dishes were amazing! You can tell the chef had spent some time experimenting and getting just the perfect combination of flavors. Each dish was a complex mix of ingredients and flavors with homemade sauces from the chef that were excellent. The dessert especially was superb. I don't think I've ever had a dessert that good. We will definitely be back!! :)
This was a really great meal. Each plate was not only creative in terms of taste, but were arranged like works of art. It was incredible how beautifully arranged each dish was, and everything tasted great. We enjoyed our dinner and would certainly recommend a visit.
We had an extraordinary meal at Les Deux Singes, with excellent service and one of the best cocktails I've ever had. The food was sublimely fresh, expertly prepared, and magnificently imaginative. It was an utterly lovely evening, worth every penny and more.
