Casa De Matéo, Old Montreal, QC

My colleague, Steve, who is also an Education Advisor from Toronto, and I took a walk to Old Montreal looking for a restaurant for supper.

We decided on a Mexican restaurant called Casa De Matéo in Old Montreal.

Tortilla chips and salsa are complimentary.

The salsa was tasty but the heat snuck up on you.

We split a litre of sangria.

It was tasty but it was full of bitter lemon and lime rinds. The straw was too big to filter them out. We both had Burritos Oaxaqueños (Two soft flour tortillas rolled around a tasty blend of spicy beef, traditional beans, melted cheese and tangy sauce. Served with rice).

They were tasty and filling ... the "tangy" sauce was quite spicy. It was two chillis out of three on their scale.

And here are me and Steve ...

It seems to be an authentic Mexican restaurant. The food was good, the servers friendly and the service leisurely.

Love that place! Usually have supper there when we go see a play at the Centaur Theatre across the street. Enjoy your visit.

It was relaxing ... I didn't notice the theatre.
