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.

Brasserie Harricana

Copy Link

Besides having 40 beers on tap, the kitchen at this stylish Mile Ex artisanal brewpub is open every day from noon (10 a.m. weekends, for brunch) until 2 a.m. Kitsch classics like deviled eggs, and celery with blue cheese are served alongside heftier items like beer-can-roasted chickens and ribeyes, all endorsed by local critics.

Le Chien Fumant

Copy Link

Eat hearty until 2:00 a.m. every day except Monday at this wildly popular Plateau restaurant tailored for "les oiseaux de nuits, les curieux et les bons vivants.”

Vices & Versa

Copy Link

Vices & Versa is first and foremost a craft beer bar, but it executes a solid selection of pub food — burgers, sandwiches, charcuterie and more. The kitchen is open until 1 a.m. daily (but the bar pours beer until 3 a.m.).

Rouge Gorge

Copy Link

Open over three years, this Plateau wine bar has become a hot late night spot for those looking for a good glass of vino and a bite to eat. With charcuterie and cheese plates for low commitment, there are also tartares, popcorn shrimp, and other small plates — all served until Rouge Gorge (and its cocktail counterpart Le Royal) closes at 3 a.m.

Lawrence's smaller next-door restaurant is a true all-rounder, with tartares, spaghetti, fried cauliflower and more dished up until 1 a.m. nightly. Eating late is also a good way to dodge crowds at this small space.

Nouveau Palais

Copy Link

One of the pioneers of new wave late night food, Nouveau Palais's menu nocturne is in effect from 12 a.m to 3 a.m., Thursday to Saturday (other nights, it's only dinner until 10:30 or 11:30 p.m.). Sticking to the basics, it’s burgers, cheese fries, and pierogis, along with plenty of drinks and music. The Palace’s newer Papineau location doesn’t share those late night hours, however.

Mezcaleros

Copy Link

Midnight tacos and tortas? Mile End's Mezkaleros has it covered — it's also a highly affordable option, with all food priced under $5 (including two to three tacos at $4.95). Open until midnight on Tuesday, 1 a.m. on Wednesday and Thursdays, and 3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays (closed Sunday and Monday).

Taza Flores

Copy Link

This sometimes-overlooked but reliable Mile End tapas spot works neatly with Iberian flavours, from grilled octopus to eggplant. Open until 2 a.m. Tuesday to Saturday (midnight on Sunday and Monday).

L'Express

Copy Link

An institution for Montrealers and industry people looking for a great meal into the wee hours, L’Express offers its full menu every night until 3 a.m. (2 a.m. Sunday). This not only means you’ll eat extremely well, but there’s plenty of excellent wine to wash it all down.

Majestique

Copy Link

This intimate Plateau cocktail and oyster bar is always a solid bet for a late night nosh, serving up its full menu — featuring, notably, an upscale, foot-long hot dog — until 3 a.m., every day.

As a wine bar, Bouillon Bilk's newer sibling does small plates laden with fresh produce and a solid selection of seafood to accompany a range of natural wines. Open until 1 a.m. every day.

Pullman

Copy Link

La Maison VIP

Copy Link

Bevo Bar + Pizzeria

Copy Link

This trendy Old Montreal spot does Neapolitan wood-fired pizzas with no-nonsense classic toppings until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Those interested in a quiet dining experience should note that it's accompanied by a DJ.

Otto Yakitori

Bar Ganadara

Copy Link

The boozy bar counterpart to the popular Korean restaurant of the same name (minus the bar), Bar Ganadara’s menu ranges from fusion-y options like bulgogi nachos to skewers and noodle soups. Bar Ganadara is open until 3 a.m. Thursday to Saturday and 12 a.m. Monday to Wednesday (it’s closed on Sundays).

Imadake Izakaya

Isle de Garde - Brasserie

Copy Link

Quebec craft beers are the draw at this Petite-Patrie brewpub, but Isle de Garde’s kitchen serves up snacks up until 3 a.m. Thursday to Saturday (1:30 a.m. the rest of the week). Charcuterie and cheeses, tartinades, and beer’s best friend, patates frites.
