With our Corsican and Niçoise roots in mind, we have created a selection of refine mises en bouche to be shared casually, just like in the South of France where we are from.
Our wine selection are all privately imported and evolves constantly.
We offer the largest selection of Corsican wines in Montréal.
What an appalling experience. It really put a black mark on our stay in Montreal. 1. We waited 11/2 HOURS for a an undercooked, overseasoned ( the oregano) and frankly , inedible pizza. They brought out the dessert ( third-rate profiteroles) BEFORE the entree. And we COULDN"T get two cups of coffee. You know, I hope that it was just inept and terrible service and not hostility against Americans. But it was $100 of inept and inhospitable service. We left starving and incredulous.
Meal was tasty. Service relaxed and friendly. Would go again anytime
Excellente adresse. Un peu de Corse à Montréal, un vrai plaisir
We ate here on a previous trip to Montréal and had to come back. We especially love the laid back relaxed feel, combined with perfectly prepared dishes. We will back the next time we are here.
*Note, people bring their children to dine here, of which we approve (you must start early, worked brilliantly with our children), if you have an issue with this, perhaps come later in the evening.
Great experience, great food! We loved this little hideaway!
It says French online, but the food was Italian. It was great!! Fantastic friendly service!
Thank you for your post. Our French restaurant does have mediterranean bassin influences. We are neighbours with Italy after all.... ;)
Nice and calm place. Very good food aven if the tapas approach is a little bit surprizing. Good welcome.
Thank you very much for your post. Looking forward to seeing you again soon !
Nous allons au Plein Sud quelques fois par année, en sortant du théâtre.
C’est toujours un plaisir. Là pissaladière est succulente et le reste du menu est à l’avenant. 👍😀
Merci pour votre sympathique message et nous avons toujours plaisir de vous recevoir.
Agréablement surprise par la qualité des plats! J’y retournerai certainement.
Votre message nous fait chaud au coeur. Au plaisir de vous revoir.
Petit resto sympa. La nourriture est bonne mais sans plus... un peu trop gras en général. Cadre sympathique
Merci pour votre message. Nous allons tâcher d'être plus vigilant sur les matières grasses.
Awesome, chill, family and friendly place, chic place with real food and incredible friendly staff
Thank you very much for your post. Looking forward to seeing you again soon !
Belle découverte. Suis allé souper avec une amie et nos 4 enfants. Nous avons reçu un service personalisé et attentionné des propriétaires. Le repas était fantastique... super expérience! J'y retournerai certainement.
Corsican restaurant that proudly displays its roots , cozy dining room as well as a neighboring area, warmly greeted by the charming gentleman who made us feel welcome from the getgo . It’s not a convention restaurant, they have a large selection of mini bites and a few main dishes , which is what we did . Arancini, beet salad, olive tapenade and the amazing pissaladiere were our appies , the latter being a flatbread with braised and caramelized onions and herbs really did me good. Mains was the magret of duck , a huge portion , with two sauces ( a sour cherry fruit confit and a onion marmalade) . I had onglet ( hanger) which was quite tasty . Had a glass of Corsican red wine, the semper fidelis tjat was most delicious ! In all , nice and cozy and would recommend it
Early dinner before a show — very quiet. Very well-informed and attentive service. Delicious tapas, several with a Corsican flair. My only complaint - and this is common with lots of restaurants — is that there were no desserts available that were not made with milk, cream or butter.
Nous avons passé une très belle soirée en couple un vendredi soir.
Le restaurant était pas complet, mais assez plein, et nous n'avons pas eu à attendre véritablement. Le service était très bon et agréable.
L'ambiance de la salle est vraiment cozy.
Les portions sont un peu trop petites par contre. C'est vrai que c'est un peu concept tapas, mais tout de même, elles gagneraient à être plus grandes, quitte à payer plus cher.
Globalement, très bonne expérience. Nous y retournerons.
Endroit très sympathique. La personne qui avait commandé le thon, a trouvé qu'il était trop cuit, et nous étions tous d'accord. Ceux qui avaient choisi la table d'hôte ont beaucoup aimé. Bon mille-feuilles de betteraves et les calamars étaient délicieux. Cependant, l'arrivée des plats aurait pu être beaucoup mieux synchronisée. Mais nous avons beaucoup aimé notre soirée.
This quaint little restaurant was absolutely fantastic. The tapas style meals are greatly portioned and atmosphere was incredible. We sat beside the fire after being absolutely soaked with rain before from the weather outside and it just made for a very enjoyable experience. Marc was amazing and he is absolutely one to go above and beyond. He's really what made our night! Absolutely recommend this place.
Everything was so lovely. My friends and I had a lovely time at dinner. We enjoyed all the plates we ordered: the tapas, the steak and tuna mains, desserts, drinks and the bottle of red Provence. The service was so wonderful too. Thank you for a pleasant experience and congratulations on your 10 year anniversary!
It was fine as an overall. A bit disappointed by the" dessert of the moment",as it did not really correspond to the description we were given of it. Fantastic spot to be at though and the service is top notch and friendly. Quiet place to enjoy tapas. I have to admit I walked in with my fiancée realizing at the last moment it was a tapas bar, when we thought we were walking into a bistro serving starter, main course, dessert. Our bad. We had a reservation so we decided to stay and give it a try. In this case we ordered a bit of everything given the small portions meant to be shared. It was not bad, it reminded us of home. (France)
Food, Service & great company!
Nice Corsican restaurant. Food was tasty, wine was private importation and service very good.
great food and great service. will definitely go back
Sorry it took us 12 years to finally try this neighbourhood resto. What a gem! Very cozy, great food & service, unique wine selection (not overpriced). Will be returning on a regular basis.
We were visiting Montréal from the Bahamas and read great reviews about Plein Sud. As suggested we made reservations for a table of 3. We very eagerly looked forward to having dinner with our son there. When we arrived at Plein Sud the middle aged man and woman behind the bar did not greet us right away and seemed in no rush to seat us. Did we look unfamiliar? Maybe. But we were treated very nonchalantly and neither of the workers seemed the slightest bit interested in hearing about our reservation. It was very awkward.My husband and I discussed whether or not to leave quietly but we decided to stay and give this place a chance. We ordered and the food was unimpressive, portions were on the small side and lacking in flavor. The middle aged woman was the most offensive; forgetting to bring forks for our meal and acting flustered , hard of hearing and too busy. We didn’t complain, we just put it down to the fact that this couple must be used to only hosting locals in their establishment, so when tourists walk in it surprises and annoys them. We left Plein Sud confused and offended by this couple’s behavior. If we didn’t know better we would think they were predjudiced against those that don’t resemble their regular clientele. We will NEVER recommend Plein Sud to anyone! TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE.
Very enjoyable dining experience. We will visit again.
We found this gem in the neighbourhood we were staying in, and would definitely return. The service was excellent, good menu and delicious food.
Awesome restaurant. Great service, food, and ambience. The cod and shrimp pasta are excellent.
Dined here alone on a weekday night when I was in Montreal. I really liked that I was seated right next to the open window so I had opportunity to people watch while I enjoyed my meal. Owner was friendly and welcoming, and restaurant was generally quiet with romantic ambiance.
Flavorful. It reminded us of our trips to south of France.
Good food. Great wine special for $20 on a Tuesday night. Friendly, casual atmosphere.
Accueil chaleureux, très bonne cuisine du sud! La pissaladière est à tomber ;) belle carte de vins.. a recommander sans hésitation
Restaurant correcte, ambiance sympas, bon service, nourriture ok pour un soir de semaine, rien d'extraordinaire cependant.
The owners of the restaurant are charming, and the food was excellent. The duck and the veal were both outstanding, and the liver was very good also.
Plein Sud est un excellent restaurant, des plats divers et avec une ambiance très agréable. Les patrons sont très sympathiques et dynamiques, ils s'occupent généralement du service. Moi et mon conjoint on y va toujours pour de grande occasion : saint Valentin, jour de l'an en famille, Noël, anniversaire . . . On a jamais été déçu, tant de la qualité des repas, de l'ambiance et de la disponibilité du restaurant. C'est aussi un des rares restaurants qui est installé depuis un peu moins de 10 ans sur la rue du Mont royal. C'est un signe!
This is a classic French restaurant with traditional dishes done extremely well in a casual, comfortable space.
There is also a pasta of the day which is always well conceived.
There were 6 of us,who ordered across the menu, from rare steak frites, to pork to pasta to tuna. They all came out perfectly.
Service was when needed, knowledgeable and competent. The wine list is modest but thoughtful. Those who had dessert were very pleased. The cappuccino was good.
This is definitely a place you come back to, even with all the choices you have in Montreal.
The food was exquisite. The service is very friendly and professional. It was not our first visit and it will not be the last.
Les plats que nous avons dégusté nous ont transporté directement en Corse! Les propriétaires sont des gens très accueillants et qui aime leur métier.
Très bon restaurant!!
Très bon restaurant de cuisine française. Le patron vous accueille comme un membre de la famille. La nourriture est succulente, la carte des vins intéressante et l'expérience en vaut vraiment la peine
J'ai l'habitude de fréquenter ce resto après le théâtre. Cette fois-ci j'ai été déçu du service et de la qualité du repas.
Bonne cuisine avec touche parfumee typique de la cuisine Corse ex: jarret d'agneau braise aux herbes. Bons vins corses: ex: rosé d'Ajaccio. Muscat Corse à l'apéro. Un seul regret, qu'ils n'aient pas de sanglier Corse en cette saison. Accueil chaleureux. Je recommande. Et je suis une gastronome française y ayant invité ses amis canadiens avec succès
