This little book, that fits easily into pocket or purse, covers 90 restaurants that offer dinner meals at $15 or less (before taxes, tips, and alcohol) in Montreal, Canada (other volumes in the series cover Toronto and New York). Four pages at the beginning provide abbreviated listings of restaurants that meet the Cheap Thrills price guidelines only at lunchtime, or are only open for lunch.

The main entries are presented alphabetically, one per page. Address and nearest subway station are listed, also phone number, hours, whether credit cards are accepted and if the restaurant has wheelchair access. Most of the information, though, is descriptive text, explaining the type of food, the ambience, background of owners and chefs, and what's especially good on the menu.

At the back of the book is an amusing piece on 'The Sex of Restaurants' that makes phonebook lookup challenging for anglophiles. There are also useful Specialty and Neighborhood Indexes. If you live in, or plan to visit Montreal, take Cheap Thrills Montreal 2006 to dinner with you, and eat your way through the city's delicious variety of cuisines.
