Montreal Restaurants

My favourite spots

Click on the (location) under every restaurant name to get the google maps directions!


(Park Avenue) Definitely top of my list. Greek cuisine. Great bloody marys and excellent service. Since it can get a bit pricey, if you’re on a budget you can go for lunch on weekdays ($25.15) or for their late night menu ($25.15) on Thursdays to Saturdays. Make sure to book a table, or call just to make sure there’s space if you’re last minute. I recommend:

  • Lobster pasta
  • Crab cakes
  • Salted Fish/Branzino
  • Tuna & Salmon Sashimi
  • Milos special
  • Greek Salad

Foie Gwa

(Little Burgundy) Perfect for a late night eat, their kitchen is open till 2am everyday. You can order food to the bar as well!

Pizza Napoletana

Anton & James

(Downtown) Perfect for a quick lunch break or getting something to go. This isn’t a restaurant setting so no bookings. I recommend:

Mandy’s Salad bar

Great place to get a healthy salad. You also have the option of creating your own, choosing from a wide variety of ingredients. If you’re in a hurry, just have it to go.

Note: It is advised to book everywhere in advance just to be on the safe side, if you’ve come by this list last minute, just give the restaurant a call to check if they have space so you don’t go all the way for nothing.

Enjoy & let me know what you think/if you have any questions in the comments!
