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
un resto toujours à la hauteur des attentes lorsque vient l'occasion de le faire connaître à des amis. Service attentif et qualité des repas présentés.
Comment dire en cinquante caractères que tout a été parfaitement à notre goût, tant le service que la créativité et la qualité de la nourriture. C'est sûr qu'on va y retourner.
PS. Peut-on savoir qui est l'idiot qui a programmé ce formulaire et qui nous force, que dire, nous enchaîne, pour trouver des surnoms idiots. Que le programmeur nous laisse un peu de latitude! Aux douches!
Amazing food, great experience
Food was good and nice atmosphere. Service was a bit slow but friendly staff.
A nice friendly, warm, family owned bistro with a touch of Corsica. Great food and wine, reasonable price. We've been here before and will return.
What a lovely dinner -- would gladly go back for the fantastic French/Corsica preparations. Lamb shank was extremely well-prepared and my husband's gnocchi was also fantastic.
Plein Sud proved to live up to its reputation. The menu was interesting and offered something for everyone with many unique French cuisine options. The food was superb, thoughtfully prepared and very well presented. And most importantly very tasty. The atmosphere of the restaurant was perfect, ideal for enjoying the cuisine and for conversation. Server was knowledgeable and obviously proud of his restaurant and its offerings.
Overall, we (a family of four, with two teenagers) had an exceptional experience at Plein Sud and we will return the next time we are in Montreal.
Great food in a fun atmosphere. Had a very local feel and every mad us feel welcome.
Wonderful setting, delightful staff, amazing food.
The menu was a bit different from online menu. Heavy dish selections for summer dining, but this seemed to be true of other restaurants we visited on this trip. The restaurant ambiance is lacking so we sat outside where we prayed a bus wouldn't swerve into us. However the food and service was very good. Recommend the linguine with coppa, corsican veal with gnocchi and steak frites
We recently enjoyed two dinners at Plein Sud and hope to return before we leave Montreal. The food was authentic and excellent, the environment relaxed and friendly, and there was a pleasantly eclectic group of diners.
Highly recommended for a lovely dinner at a local neighborhood bistro.
It was a good experience to eat in this cosy restaurant. I searched it through Internet and it had a good rating. It turned out the comments are right. The food was exquisite and the service was good. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a gem in this neighbourhood.
