You don’t have to cross the Cartier to get great pizza — in fact, some of the tastiest pies are coming out of Bravi, a polished Italian restaurant on Jacques-Cartier Boulevard serving up creative wood-fired pizzas with fun toppings like prosciutto, arugula salad, and bocconcini or sun-dried tomatoes with squash and artichokes. What’s more, Bravi boasts a walk-in wine cellar with hundreds of Italian and international reds, whites, and sparkling wines to choose from.

Quai 99

Think of the Quai 99 Restaurant as your local yacht club — just way more down to earth. The dazzling riverfront terrace boasts live music, a pool, and unobstructed views of the Montreal skyline. It also doles out no-frills snacks like burgers and sweet potato fries — plus fancier fare, including tuna tartare and braised beef.

Silva Grillades

This Old Longueuil mainstay boasts one of the most expansive terraces on Rue Saint-Charles, as well as a meticulously-curated wine cellar and stately dining room.

Tucked into Rue Saint-Charles Ouest, Péché Matinal feels more a modern art museum than a café. The vaulted glass ceiling and contemporary photography and paintings create a welcoming, airy space ideal for wasting away a weekend morning sipping coffee. Indulge in brunch classics like gravlax plates and French toast, or more innovative fare like the “grilled cheese du terroir,” a decadent grilled cheese sandwich with bacon, wild mushrooms, and squash.

Resto Pub St. Mark

Resto Pub St. Mark is a pointedly unpretentious gastro pub, and that’s exactly what makes it such a great neighborhood watering hole. The cozy corner tavern serves up delicious Québécois pub grub, including smoked meat sandwiches and hamburger steak. It even has a seperate section for vegetarian takes on Québécois classics, alongside an expansive beer menu that includes everything from local microbrews to international stouts and more.

Restaurant Lou Nissart

Restaurant Lou Nissart has made a name for itself with locals for its Mediterranean-inspired outdoor terrasse that features bright oranges, deep blues, and for the French Riviera-inspired art sprinkled throughout the multi-floor venue. In terms of cuisine, Lou Nissart specializes in Niçoise and Provençale fare, and is particularly loved for its Provençale pizzas and tapenades.

Fresh, high-quality all-you-can-eat sushi and sashimi awaits at Taiyo Sushi’s Longueuil location. Like at many all-you-can-eat spots, Taiyo’s tables don iPads which allows guests to order multiple rounds of sushi without having to wait for a waiter. What’s more, the ornate design and light-flooded dining space makes it an ideal spot for a cozy daytime date.

Le Mantra

Quiet and cozy, Le Mantra’s dining space is a great spot for group outings — but to get the real experience, plan for a lunch date at the afternoon buffet or the weekend belly dancing show. All buffet dishes are made fresh and move quickly — so they’re always piping hot and full of flavour. Don’t skip on the creamy, rich shahi paneer, which may be some of the best in Greater Montreal.

Restaurant Le Bambou Vert

In the mood for noodles? This BYOB Vietnamese and Chinese restaurant doesn’t look like much on the outside — but inside you’ll find delicious pho, grilled meats (including barbecue chicken), and a variety of spicy curry dishes. It’s all housed in a converted home on Curé-Poirier Boulevard.

Bistro Des Bières Belges
