very cool Johnny. I've always wanted to visit this place. It's great that they still have the same plates, menus... it looks really old (even the food !!) but yeah, I wonder how it is at night (or in the daytime in winter !) with the lamps working.

Thanks for the pics, JD.

Now maybe people will stop poo-poo (platter)-ing me when I expound on Jardin Tiki's virtues!

Ever since I first posted pics of the it (similar to Johnny's but fewer and smaller) to my old web site in 1997, I've been a cheerleader for this place.

I have always considered it a trans-continental cousin to the Tonga Room: amazing to behold, but tread carefully when considering their food and drink offerings.

Glad to see that it hasn't devolved too much since my visit there over a decade ago. Now I am itching to go back!

Thanks for the photos, Johnny$. Amazing place. I'm thinking of visiting Montreal in September (as well as Toronto and Ottawa). It's at the top of my To-Do list.

Managed to stumble across this place last week. Didn't have my Tiki Road Trip book with me and didn't remember it in there. What a cool find! Very nice people, great environment. The kids loved seeing the turtles.

Le Jardin Tiki may be closed/demo'd (to become a home for the elderly):

Not much time left for the Jardin Tiki. Here is a link to an article in the Montreal Eater with some nice photos Jardin Tiki.

I clipped a few lest the link goes away.

That last shot is the best one. A wide angle does not make good architectural photography alone.

Man that auction is going to be a madhouse!

Oh, and how grand that they got the word "kitschy" into the headline - I would have been worried if otherwise!
