Le St-Urbain is one of the most underestimated restaurants in town! Of course, it’s often full, which attests to the good taste of the clientele, but it should always be full. In this section of Fleury Street West, Le St-Urbain offers some of the best meals in town and the establishment is a rare gem in Montreal.

Marc-André Royal, chef and co-owner, has worked at renowned restaurants such as L’Express and 357C to name a few. In 2009, the chef decided to open a restaurant outside of downtown and the Plateau Mont-Royal : Le St-Urbain on Fleury Street became an instant success!

The space of about fifty seats boasts an entirely redone interior by Marc-André and Mario Rousseau’s team; superb leather chairs, brushed steel tables, pine tile ceiling. Co-owner, and chef Adam Ganten (congrats Adam) offers a particularly tasty seasonal cuisine. The St-Urbain menu is both gastronomic and comforting. Think char, tartare, small market vegetables, seafood, pasta, steak, duck and other, carefully prepared and original dishes. The ingredients used here are carefully selected and as much as possible from our region – starters range between $14 and $18 and main courses between $27 and $36. The menu changes according to the fresh arrivals and availability on the market. The menu dégustation has 6 courses for $70 and changes daily. The restaurant is the first in Quebec to be recommended by Ocean Wise; guarantor of responsible fishing.

Directed brilliantly by Chantal Gervais, the restaurant’s talented and hyperactive room manager, sommelier and co-owner, the team in the dining room is welcoming and attentive. As for wines, the elaborate menu offers a good range of choices, mostly private imports – the price of bottles ranges from $36 to $100, many options for the glass and half glass, and the wine lovers are satisfied.

The atmosphere is quite festive and noisy; the St-Urbain is both a small local bistro and a destination restaurant. The clientele is eclectic. Eating here is always a remarkable, tasty experience!
