Was there last week while in Montreal on business. I walked from the Hilton Bonaventure, it took 45-50 min walking at a good pace, you would need to be used to walking a fair bit otherwise I would recommend taking a cab or the subway from downtown. I walked up St. Laurent which had the sidewalks torn up for the first number of blocks. One of the shops along the way was having a "no sidewalk sale", cute.
The atmosphere once inside Dieu Du Ciel is pretty much as others have described, relatively small, dimly lit but not too dark that you couldn't read a book or newspaper, with the bar at the back and the fermentation tanks on one side behind glass. Behind the bar were lots of empty bottles from all over the world, everything from Rogue to Rochefort.
I sat at the bar and ordered a Peche Mortel which was outstanding. Also had the cheese plate which included a small loaf of bread that the guy behind the bar heated up in a toaster over, 5 different cheeses, nuts, dried fruit and olives. The cheese plate complemented the beer nicely and I very much enjoyed my private beer and cheese tasting.
Service was good, the 2 guys working there both spoke primarily French but had no trouble understanding my English. I was there on a Tuesday night and the place was about half full. Prices were quite reasonable with a glass of Peche at $4.50. My only complaint is I didn't get a chance to try any of the other beers as I had a 2nd Peche Mortel that was enough for me for the night.
I very much look forward to returning on my next visit to Montreal and sampling a greater variety of their brews. Highly recommended!
