Ile Flottante (former Les Deux Singes) Ratings and Reviews
Nous avons opté pour le menu 7 services de la st-valentin. C'était la première fois que nous y retournions depuis les deux singes. Le menu est limité, 3-5-7 services, mais c'est correct cela permet que le chef puisse nous surprendre. La mise en bouche de gâteau au carotte sucré-salé, délicieuse. Les plats de salade de brocoli, champignons poêlés vraiment mais vraiment bon. Cela s'est gâté au spaghetti de poireau, vraiment ordinaire, difficile à manger et le caviar de saumon vraiment pas sa place. Le repas principale, magret de canard, était correct mais sans plus. Manque de saveur, la peau non croustillante mais bonne cuisson. Excellent desserts (2). La carte de vin est extrêment limitée. Comme le prix du repas nous a semblé quand même raisonnable, nous avons été satisfait du repas et de la soirée.
C’est très ordinaire de ne pas offrir de choix.
Le menu est imposé.
Aujourd’hui nous recherchons une expérience globale et non a sens unique!
Trop de fioritures dans l’assiette, moins c’est parfois mieux.
Décor trop simple.
Pour toutes ces raisons, nous ne recommanderons pas ce restaurant et ni irons plus
This is a very unique place. 3 offers: 3-5-7 services. 5 is enough food... no small plates where you look for food and find nothing,.. Every meal was fresh, tasty, well prepared, innovative and a beauty for the eyes. Most of the meal are vegan. Had duck for meat and it was so tasty. Pairing with wine was nicely done (I am habitually someone difficult to convince on this But have to admit that they did very well. ) Do we return ? No doubt. Already on my agenda.
This is a superb restaurant in terms of the quality of the food and the presentation. The staff and service were terrific. Attentive without being overly involved at the table.
I have one small wish, that they could somehow reduce the noise level. It’s a very popular restaurant because the food is so good, but when it is full, the noise level is high making conversation difficult.
Regardless, I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant.
From the first plate to the last, I am never disappointed and pretty much always amazed by the flavours and creativity. It is a feast for the eyes, as every plate is a piece of art. It is a treat for the palate, the smallest bubble of flavour just bursts on your tongue! In my books, it is simply spectacular and my favourite restaurant in the city!
Absolutely fantastic! If you are in Montreal, GO!! Food was great and the wine pairing was spot on. Wonderful dining experience, about 2 -2.5 hours long.
When you arrive, your table has your name on it. We had the 5 course tasting and wine pairing. Left supremely satisfied and full but not overstuffed. Highly recommend.
This little restaurant is a total GEM! It seems to float under the radar, which for me is a huge plus! They offer gastronomic fare, but in a laid-back, warm, welcoming fashion. No snobbery here - but absolutely extraordinary and sophisticated cuisine! This is definitely our favourite restaurant - not just in Montreal, but anywhere! On offer is a Tasting Menu; choose vegetarian or not, and then sit back enjoy the ambiance, a wonderful cocktail or excellent wine - and allow the Chef and his 'sous's' to delight you. While creative, the food is not 'pretentious' - but substantial, artfully presented, and every bite... sublime!
From the warm welcome and excellent service from the front of the house, to the last lingering taste of dessert, this is a restaurant you'll be longing to return to!
This was my first visit to Montreal, so I was very excited to experience a special local restaurant. The reviews on Open Table were spot on. The food was wonderful, the atmosphere was excellent and my business partner and I had a great time. I don't eat French food very often, so this was a bit of an experiment for me. We loved everything. This was probably one of the best meals that I had in the past year.
We did the five course tasting menu and it was very satisfying. The food quality was excellent and the staff was very friendly. We were visiting from the US and don't speak any French, but that wasn't an issue whatsoever.
Overall I would highly recommend Ile Flottante, but know that the awning out front still saysLes Deux Singes.
The food, service, and price point were all absolutely spectacular. The quality of cooking was on par, if not surpassing, several Michelin rated restaurants that we have been to. The only disappointment was the pineapple jelly dessert. After four courses that were truly world-class, this dish was a let down. If they had nailed that course, the meal would have been perfect. You basically pay $60 for a meal that usually costs 2-3x more in New York for similar quality. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place. Really amazing.
My wife and I were very excited to dine at Ike Flottante because of the great reviews. We weren’t sure if we should try the 3 course, 5 course, or seven course dinner. Thank’s to our waiter, we picked the 5 course. Their Amuse Bouch was almost like an addition course. So we had a hard time we finishing all of our courses. The dishes were very creative. But unfortunately a couple of them were very very salty. Btw the cocktails we started with were very well made and delicious. Overall, this was a nice experience and the value was very good. I am not sure if we will revisit this restaurant on our next trip to Montreal.
Original, l’art culinaire prend tout son sens ici. La présentation des plats est exceptionnelle autant que le goût. On a bien aimé. Je dirais l’équivalent de L’atelier de Joël Robuchon mais sans le décorum. On est plutôt ici dans un décor simple type plateau
The menu is pre-set, and whether Vegetarian or not, there is an excellent pre-selected menu.
This allows the chef to put together an exquisite sequence of dishes. We had a 5 course + complimentary plate.
My girlfriend ends up taking pictures of each plate, as it's as much artictic as it is a culinary delight.
This creates a very unque experience, and for us, this is an extremely important part of dining out. The new layout at the restaurent, is very tasteful, and yet still retains the charm.
I had my brother and his wife in from SanDiego, and we had a wonderful 3 hours there.
