Montreal is a unique and beautiful little space where French and English come together as one. Although it is a part of Canada, there is something a little different to this city-with some commenting that it feels like a country on its own. It is culturally diverse, oozing with charm and definitely a place for tourists. Because of its mixture of culture, Montreal hosts some fabulous restaurants where you can enjoy fine wines and meals according to your favourite taste. Here are some of Montreal’s must visit places to wine and dine. Those who are familiar with the city and are professionally based here with office spaces know exactly what I’m talking about.
This Gastropub is definitely one to hit as one of it investors is none other than Jamie Oliver. Its British styled food and wine menu may not be the cheapest, but the food and experience is worth every last cent. With a warm and cosy atmosphere, and friendly staff, you can enjoy large and hearty portions of food and you certainly won’t leave feeling hungry. This place is not very vegetarian friendly, with some notable items on the menu include rabbit and horse, but meat eaters are nothing short of delighted by its offerings.
This bustling little spot is perfect for brunch, with delicious English styled breakfasts, scones and donuts. Some other items on the menu are quite exotic and unusual, so it is ideal for more adventurous foodies. Some of these include goat’s curd, catfish belly and glazed eel-the dinner menu is definitely for more mature and well travelled crowds. Pricing is not cheap but not ridiculously expensive.
This lovely breakfast/brunch café is highly rated, with a varied menu for all tastes. From fried chicken and French toast to mouth watering steaks, Prohibition Bistro has fast, friendly service and a cosy atmosphere. Its drinks menu is also impressive, with a selection of white and red wines and light and dark beers to enjoy with your meals. Definitely a place to stop into if you’re hungry.
Lucille’s Oyster Dive
The name says it all-if you love oysters and all things seafood, this restaurant is the place to be. This oyster bar not only boasts a colorful menu for seafood lovers to enjoy, but is full of ambience with great music and atmosphere. It’s more of a laid back and informal restaurant where you can make some noise and relax, while feasting on some of its fabulous treats, including lobster rolls, seafood towers or good old fish and chips.
Le Vieux Velo
Le Vieux Velo which, translated, means “The Old Bicycle”, is a hip, friendly and accommodating restaurant where you can enjoy a good breakfast, brunch or late lunch. Their eggs Benedict is out of this world, and their service is fast, friendly and affordable.. Their coffee is good and comes in large quantities. A great little spot to meet up with friends and enjoy a delicious meal.
