We booked a table after hunting for somewhere that served great tapas - this place did not disappoint. We started with cocktails; Bellini and a "bully" (Gin and cucumber based), the latter I could have drank a thousand of. We then took them up on one of their daily specials to start which was a fantastic beef tar-tar with brioche and then followed it up with their sea food tower and steak with chimichurri sauce - all of it amazing. Our waiter/waitress combo were a 5 star beauties who even advised us that going with the small seafood tower over the large one was the move. This was a truly stud move as most restaurants would rather gauge you and waste food for the sake of a larger bill, and subsequently a larger tip. If all of this wasn't good enough, when we were selecting wine to go with the meal we asked about a couple of options on the list....our waiter advised that his sommelier might have a bottle or two in his private collection that would pair well with our blend of seafood and red meat. The cherry on top was the playlist in the restaurant too. If you're in your late 20's/early 30's then you'll love the tunes. All in all would highly recommend the place and will certainly be going back next time in MTL. It's a pay for what you get joint and you will not leave feeling fleeced. 10/10

The Fois Gras was outstanding! The Tagliatelle was so light and delicious we asked for bread at the end to soak up the sauce... and the waitress was quick, witty and gave us great advice when it came to food choices and wine! I’ll definitely be returning!

What a wonderful evening we had! We arrived 30 minutes earlier. It was crowded and there was no table for us at the time. The lady usher was so kind she took us to the next door and found us a table so we could have a drink and wait. We had monkfish and lobster pasta. They were cooked just right.

Dine in style and enjoy superior seafood in Montreal

This restaurant in Old Montreal pays tribute to the ocean with its décor and menu. Try the New Brunswick smelt, served with lemon and aioli, the snow crab croquettes, the lobster rolls and clam chowder, the warm octopus salad or roast sea bass.

Tagliatelle carbonara served in a lobster bisque sauce with shallots, sundried tomatoes and basil is a must try at Bocata. The egg arrives in its half shell, seasoned with salt and pepper, ready to mix in with the pasta for added richness. The smoked bacon is essential to the dish, and the lobster is an added (and very welcome!) twist on a classic carbonara.

I’ve been a huge fan of Barroco, Bocata’s ‘big sister’ resto next door, but recently I’ve taken to the small plates and tapas at Bocata. The gorgeous baroque, almost-gothic stone and candlelight décor is the perfect setting for a glass of wine and an oyster platter. And DO have the patta negra ham and the tomato toast! It’s basically Barcelona by way of Old-Montreal.
