As a largely residential neighbourhood, Little Burgundy’s restaurant scene is fairly constricted to the few blocks of Notre Dame between Atwater and Guy. That doesn’t mean it should be underestimated. There’s Joe Beef and its sibling establishments, of course, but also plenty other options for locals to enjoy. From an Acadian eatery serving lobster guédille to a beyond gorgeous patisserie with baked goods to match, the places on this map call Little Burgundy home.

Looking for tips for other parts of the Sud-Ouest? We’ve got maps for St-Henri, Griffintown, and south of the canal, Pointe-St-Charles.

Health experts consider dining out to be a low-to-moderate risk for the vaccinated. For updated information and regulations, please visit the official sites of the Quebec government and Montreal’s public health authority (Santé Montréal).

2695 Rue Notre Dame O, Montréal
QC H3J 1N9, Canada
(514) 419-0909
Visit Website

From the same family as Bistro Otto on the Plateau, this casual bar and restaurant opened mere weeks before the onset of the pandemic and did well to survive the numerous closures and restrictions put in place over its first year and a half in business. On the drink side, Bar Otto focuses on natural wines and imported sake, while the dining options are a mouth-watering mix of sashimi, wagyu beef, and ramen and mazemen noodle dishes. Open Wednesday to Sunday; reservations recommended.

4. Le Fricot

2661 Rue Notre Dame O, Montréal
QC H3J 1N9, Canada
(514) 419-1683

Welcome to the Maritimes. This friendly eatery offers patrons the opportunity to dine on Acadian delicacies from the east coast of Canada such as lobster guédille, popcorn shrimp, and donair wraps. The classic watering hole next door, Drinkerie, offers a solid selection of beer, wine, and a long list of cocktails to pair with your meal.

5. Le Vin Papillon

Copy Link
2519 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest, Montréal
QC H3J 1N4, Canada
(514) 439-6494
Visit Website

More vegetable-forward than its well-known sibling restaurants, Joe Beef and Liverpool House, and with great wines to boot, Le Vin Papillon is a reliable option for those after-work drinks and snacks that end up turning into an entire meal. Another good reason to go right after work: Le Vin Papillon, unlike the others in the restaurant group, does not take reservations — come early to grab a seat indoors or out back on the terrasse.

6. Burgundy Lion

Copy Link
2496 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest, Montréal
QC H3J 1N5, Canada
(514) 934-0888
Visit Website

Not only does this exceedingly popular pub offer a great selection of pints and whisky to enjoy while watching a game of football (ahem, soccer), the food menu is also on point with a sizeable serving of fish n’ chips, bangers & mash, ploughman’s lunch, and other well-executed British specialties (including South Asian specialities like tikka masala, common grub in English pubs). It’s a great option for brunch, as well.

7. Stem Bar

Copy Link
2475 Rue Notre Dame O, Montréal
QC H3J 1N6, Canada
(438) 380-0574
Visit Website

Seasonal ingredients, natural wines, and local beers on tap are the focus at this promising new addition to the neighbourhood. It’s an expansion of neighbouring September Surf, where in the daytime locals gather for avocado toast, fluffy pancakes, and a mean cold brew alongside other caffeinated drinks.

8. Patrice Pâtissier

Copy Link
2360 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest, Montréal
QC H3J 1N4, Canada
(514) 439-5434
Visit Website

Renowned pastry chef Patrice Demers finesses some of the finest pastries in Montreal — and arguably, worldwide. The kouign amann and cannelé are not to be missed, and neither are any of the artistic delights incorporating seasonal fruits like blueberries, raspberries, and rhubarb. For the moment, Patrice is open only Thursday to Sunday, but you can now order your pastries in advance using its online boutique.

9. Candide

551 Rue Saint-Martin, Montréal
QC H3J 2L6, Canada
(514) 447-2717
Visit Website

Spearheaded by chef John Winter Russell, an ever-shifting tasting menu is the name of the game at this beautiful restaurant located in the backside and basement of an old church. In the warmer months, its terrasse is a quiet spot to enjoy great food and wine, while winter offerings include preserves from the summer’s bounty. Reservations required.
