A foodie in Montreal

What are restaurants that I MUST check out? I love all kinds of food (just nothing too spicy!) and I'm willing to spend a little more for a nice meal one night, but other than that, nothing too pricey.

Hi Allie!

As a foodie, you're going to one of the best cities to indulge. I literally can recommend so many amazing restaurants for lunch/dinner, but I think if I was to visit Montreal, I would emphasize brunch! Montreal has a pretty big brunch culture and so many great restaurants to chose from. Here are my favourites (in order of preference):

Restaurant L'Avenue (Arguably the best brunch restaurant in Montreal. Serving brunch everyday till 4pm!)

Fabergé Restaurant

The Sparrow (only open on the weekends)


Beautys Luncheonette

SUWU (this is a restaurant/bar that turns into a lounge late at night, however on the weekends they serve a pretty eclectic brunch)

We think no trip to Montreal is complete without a visit to Restaurant au Pied de Cochon  Be sure to make reservations or you will never get in.

I haven't been to Montreal in years, and have not eaten at this restaurant but a chef friend of mine from Montreal recommended Panache to us when we were planning our 2014 trip to Canada.  We ended up not going to Montreal, but we nearly did just so we could ear here!

Two suggestions. For great pizza try Bottega []. Family owned in Little Italy where the pizza is out of this world.

For french cuisine, try Restaurant le Grain de Sel a small and friendly placewhere you'll have a very good meal.

Hi Allie,

A place I love is Bocata Restaurant on St. Paul street in Old Montreal. It can be a little pricey, especially if you try a few of there wines by the glass but the food, ambiance and service are all amazing. 

As a bonus, St. Paul street is one of the coolest streets to take a walk on.
