Vieux Montreal, the city’s tourist district, is one of the prettiest in the country. Most touristic landmarks are located there and it’s so picturesque that plenty of visitors prefer to stay there during their whole stay. I don’t recommend you do so, and there are plenty of great restaurants in Montreal outside of Old Montreal, but if you’re looking for the best Restaurant Vieux Montreal, don’t fall for tourist traps! Here are my favourite Restaurant Vieux Montreal.
It is my humble opinion that Monarque is one of the best restaurants in Canada. It offers a great setting, multiple menu options and an overall fair price point. Service and presentation are always superb.
It combines French classics with Quebecois twists as well as a few inventive takes on local in-season ingredients.
Note that Monarque offers two different menus: a finer-dining experience and a brasserie menu. Both are great.
Restaurant du Vieux-Montréal – Pizza de Mangiafoco
This is one of those absolute staples in Old Montreal. It’s my go-to when I’m forced to eat in the neighborhood. Great salads, awesome wood-fired pizza – a hybrid between Napoli and New York style – and plenty of crisp Italian wines to go with!
L’Orignal conserve sa fabuleuse sélection d’huîtres et augmente la capacité de son bar, où les clients se rassemblent pour boire et manger des bivalves.
The cabin décor might be a bit tacky but the food and cocktails are always enjoyable. Again, it’s a bit on the expensive side of the value scale, but it’s Old Montreal, eating in this neighborhood comes at a premium!
I’m kinda stretching the boundaries of Vieux Montreal with this one as it sits on the edge of three different neighborhoods, but this place is known as one of the 5 best restaurants of the country year in and year out. Bring your dinner jacket and your wallet!
This isn’t fancy creative hipster cool food. It’s pure Old World food the way grandma used to make… if grandma happens to be Polish. Do you like pierogis and hunter’s stew? Head to Stash Café, they make them well.
