19 Essential Montreal Late Night Restaurants

Where to get a (non-poutine-based) meal after midnight.

View as Map

Montreal has some classic late-night food spots like La Banquise and Chez Claudette, but a recent surge in restaurants and bars with longer hours (we’re so European!) puts more options on the table. Beyond Chinatown, poutine, smoked meat, and sad pizza, there are additional choices now for those in search of a decent meal late. Here are 19 good bets open beyond midnight.

The restaurants here are mostly sit-down casual or even formal options — if you’re looking for a late-night poutine or other drunk food, check out our guide to 24-hour restaurants.
