6. Le St-Urbain

96 rue Fleury Ouest, Montreal
QC H3L 1T2, Canada
(514) 504-7700
Visit Website
Marc-André Royal's Ahuntsic restaurant is a reliable staple on the city's culinary scene. Chef Adam Ganten serves up dishes with a bistro feel (soups, salmon, risotto) but fine-dining refinement — there's also a five-course degustation as a lunch option.

7. Dinette Triple Crown

Copy Link
6704 rue Clark, Montreal
QC H2S 3E9, Canada
(514) 272-2617
Visit Website
Lunch is a great time to beat the crowds at this queue-stricken purveyor of excellent fried chicken and other Southern food. Their hugely popular picnic baskets are a good summer option, but few seem to realize that there's a full dining room on site, too. Tip: ask about the daily specials.

8. Milos

5357 avenue du Parc, Montreal
QC H2V 4G9, Canada
(514) 272-3522

The city's finest Greek restaurant is known as a veritable treat on the seafood front, although evening diners will usually pay a handsome sum for it. Lunch, however, is served every weekday, a steal at three courses for $25. They also guarantee in-and-out service within an hour if needed.

9. Le Quartier Général

Copy Link
1251 rue Gilford, Montreal
QC H2J 1R2, Canada
(514) 658-1839
Visit Website
Vincent Chatelais and Dominic Laflamme have built this tucked-away Gilford Street spot up into one of the most popular neighbourhood restaurants in the Plateau. The lunch table d'hôte is a steal for technically on-point French cuisine; day drinkers take note: it's BYOB, too.

10. Moleskine

3412, Avenue du Parc, Montreal
QC H2X 2H5, Canada
(514) 903-6939

Some of the city's best pizzas are served on the more casual ground level of this somewhat new arrival from the people behind wine bar Pullman. Head upstairs and it's more formal Italian from chef Frédéric St-Aubin.

11. Sumac

Copy Link
3618 Notre-Dame Ouest, Montreal
QC H4C 1P5, Canada
(514) 935-1444
Visit Website
By virtue of selling falafel and shawarma, Sumac is on the casual end of this guide, but it's nonetheless an eminently pleasing option for a sit-down lunch, with flavour-packed salads, pickles, and dips rounding out a menu that is a notch above your average shawarma vendor.

12. 3734

Modern Portuguese is the focus at this newer St-Henri locale — befitting the cuisine, piri-piri chicken and grilled seafood options are among the strengths.

13. Park

378 Avenue Victoria, Westmount
QC H3Z 2N4, Canada
(514) 750-7534

Much like other places on this map, lunch is an excellent time to beat the crowds at Antonio Park's eponymous Westmount restaurant. Park staples like the full omakase or kobe beef may not be on offer at the noon hour, but the essence of the restaurant still shines through in lunchy options like teriyaki don or chirashi.
