Charming, welcoming and located in the heart of Old Montreal (Place Jacques-Cartier), Jardin Nelson is a true haven where you can bask in the warm summer atmosphere.

It is not surprising that people come from all over the world to relish the combined pleasures of good food, exceptional service and an impressive variety of plants.

Come and savor the pleasures of the table, sangrias for all tastes and refreshing cocktails.  Whether you choose our front terrace in the heart of Place Jacques Cartier to watch artists and street performers or our rear courtyard with its fabulous design, you will find everything you desire to enjoy a memorable time.

Listed amongst the most beautiful terraces in Quebec, our courtyard is renowned for the beauty of its decorative horticulture and its musical jazz scene.

Come summertime, our Jardin explodes with color.  Trees, plants, everything is magnificent.  In the evening, spectacular lighting creates a magical aura.

In the heart of the Jardin, a fountain borders the stage.  We present a variety of pop jazz, from early May to Canadian Thanksgiving, every day, from noon to late evening.

On rainy days or when the sun shines too brightly, we open our gigantic parasols and retractable awnings for your comfort.

Our highly trained personnel offers you a warm welcome. You will certainly enjoy a very pleasant interlude with us.


It will be a pleasure to greet and serve you
