You do not want to miss dining in Montreal restaurants. Great service and great eating is the fare of the day and night. When I eat in Montreal it is all I expect from a fine restaurant. Wonderful atmosphere and attention to small details make every meal I have had in this beautiful city worthwhile. You can find quality at budget prices at many eateries in Montreal.
Some of the highest rated in the world call Montreal their home. Many feature classic haute cuisine and have exceptionally stocked wine cellars with some of finest French wines on this continent. Many restaurants are enhanced by fine Canadian art, real flowers, romantic lighting and of course white table linens. Montreal focuses on wonderfully prepared traditional dishes.
You will fine the best prime rib of beef, terrine of duck, venison medallions, and for the health conscious some of the best poached salmon you will ever lift to your lips. Dancing and live music is the Saturday night fare at some of the livelier cafes. How about the best steak you have ever tasted topped off with a selection of decadent French sauces. Traditional steakhouses in Montreal give beef lovers a touch of Paris.
Perhaps seafood is more your taste. Some of the best lobster prepared you will ever enjoy is found in Montreal. Your particular seafood favorite is guaranteed to be on the menu and you will want to come back soon to try another seafood specialty. Many of Montreal’s finer restaurants have wonderfully rustic decors, beamed ceilings and traditional Quebecois pine armoires.
You will want to call in advance for reservations at most of the fine restaurants in Montreal but even if you do not have one if there is room you will be seated immediately. There is no snobbery in this friendly city. In all restaurants I visited everyone was friendly and offered wonderful service.
French restaurants serve delectably prepared wonderfully seasoned dishes at night. But in selected cafes lunch has a particular draw because of moderate priced lunchtime specials. If you enjoy beef Wellington or candied duck during the middle of the day, you might want to visit when the prices are a little less expensive.
And do not forget decadent desserts. Stylish venues offer warm colors, soft lights and gorgeous patinas; perfect for dinning with that special someone. You say Italian is your style of eats. Luscious lasagna, perfect pasta sauce, mouth watering manicotti, will make you think you are in Rome not Montreal. You will eat some of the best pizzas in Montreal topped with fresh ingredients all grown locally.
I love to cook. But I do not necessarily love to eat out. I usually leave the restaurant knowing I could have cooked a better meal and I could feed my family for a week on the money I spent on my dinner alone. But this is not the case when I am in Montreal. I could not match the cuisine and prices overall are the most reasonable I find for the quality of food and service. Take it from me Montreal restaurants are some of the best I have ever visited in the world.
