When in doubt, trust customer reviews over tour guides. Check TripAdvisor, Restomontreal, Yelp, Google and Facebook reviews. Look for places with many recent reviews. If a place only has 3 reviews, those probably come from friends or even staff. And if the reviews are all from 2010, well, a lot can change in 8 years.
