"I had come across this restaurant many times in reviews but I had never been to Plein Sud. Being from South of France myself, I really love the type of cuisine that this restaurant offers.
The food is great, everyone loved what they ordered (Pizza Corse, Sauté de Veau, Jarret d'Agneau...).
I liked the fact that they had a rosé wine from France and not the horrible Gallo Zinfandel that every other restaurant offers as the only option for rosé.
The ambiance is intimate with dim lights, it does get a bit noisy sometimes though. The service is perfect, they never disturb you but they are here when you need them. Our waiter was very nice.
The price is not too high even if you're having the 3-courses table d'hôte - it's pretty rare to find a restaurant with good food at a reasonable price.
One of my best dining experiences in Montreal."

"ordered the flank steak med-well and the outside was charred and it was completely shrunken looking...and the majority of it was cold and red inside! Husband had the veal and gnocchi and I ended up sharing with him. Waited a long time for the check and was never asked if we wanted another drink, which I did, or dessert. Quaint place and lovely server, and my husbands dish saved the night"

"Our server was very helpful and helped us organize our large group very efficiently. We had kids with us and she accommodated our requests with a kids menu. Our meals were delicious and paired very nicely with our wines. My only complaint would be the petit nicoise salad my friend ordered. It was very ordinary and used canned tuna. Otherwise everything else was quite good!"

"Cute place but the food was not very good. Soup tasted like water. Duck was over cooked. Fish was fine. Creme brûlée was thin, had a weird herby after taste, and and a layer of caramelized sugar so thick it was hard to break. Staff was nice but extremely slow."

"We visited Montreal during Jazz fest and ate at a number of notable restaurants. This meal was the best that we had there. Both service and food are excellent - well-executed southern french food. Great, affordable wines with good recos for pairing with the meal. Best of all, Plein Sud has a relaxed vibe - it's not overly formal."

"I have been to Plein Sud a few times. The owners Dominique and William are very welcoming. The atmosphere is cosy...sort of like being in your kitchen. I went with some co-workers last winter and there was a separate room just for us. The food was hot and served in a timely fashion.
Last Friday I went with a couple friends and the expierience was the same. We each had an entree and main course. They have the typical french cuisine with a twist. My entree was a millefeuille of layered beets and warm goat cheese with a yummy garlic and balsamic vinegar sauce. YUMMY. The mains we had were hangar steak with blue cheese sauce, veal liver with onions and vegetables and veal with gnocchi. All presented beautifully and the taste...just like I could do at home, only better.
What a nice resto to spend a cold evening.
