Best Places to Eat in Montreal and Quebec City

Best Places to Eat in Montreal and Quebec City

On our next small group tour to Canada we will visit Montreal and Quebec City.  Here are some of our favorite places to eat: 


Hotel Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth
900 René-Lévesque Blvd W
Refined lodging with a sophisticated bistro & a chic cocktail lounge.  The Sunday brunch is famous in Montreal.

Les Enfants Terribles 
Mansfield St, Place Ville Marie 44th Floor 
Beautiful views of downtown Montreal.  You will be saying "ooh la la" at the Steak Frites, Fish & Chips and oversized burgers.

The Keg Steakhouse + Bar - Place Ville Marie
Mansfield St, Place Ville Marie #5
Classic steak & seafood dishes are the mainstays at this stylish yet casual chain restaurant.  Good Canadian beer on tap too.

Vargas Restaurant
690 René-Lévesque Blvd W
Steak, sushi and a great bar.  What else can you ask for in this classic and elegant place. 

Garde Manger
408 Saint Francois Xavier St
No need to travel to Paris for great French food.  On the menu is beef tartare, heirloom tomatoes, just for starters.  Hangar steak, duck breast, and scallops are some of The Professor's favorite dishes. 


Located in the Fairmont Hotel, this polished, landmark restaurant serves high-end French cuisine.
A place for celebration with one of the most stunning views of the St. Lawrence River to be found.  Traditional Canadian dishes make for a delightful meal. 

Le Sam Bistro Évolutif
Located in the Fairmont Hotel, great views, great food.
This is the 2nd restaurant we list in the famed Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac Hotel.  Again, wonderful views of the river with traditional Canadian dishes. 

1608 Bar
Located in the Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac Hotel
What?  Another recommendation in the Chateau Frontenac?  That's right.  Stylish bar serving wine, cocktails, artisanal cheeses & light bites

Aux Anciens Canadiens
34 Rue Saint-Louis
Housed in a historic home, this popular spot offers gourmet Quebec cuisine in quaint surroundings.
This is even better than being in Europe.  Inside an old timbered building, diners will feel like they are in Normandy enjoying an authentic French meal. 

65 Rue De Buad
Travelers on a Traveling Professor small group tour to Canada always enjoy this convivial place. Elegant, contemporary pub & eatery with unique dining areas & an eclectic European-influenced menu.  Excellent seafood chowder.

Les Trois Garçons
1084 Rue Saint-Jean
Not that fancy and a great lunch spot. Gourmet burgers & other bistro fare, plus house-roasted java & a bar.
