A hedonist's dream, the tasting menu is an excellent way to make the most of a night dining out — oftentimes, the tasting menu is the best way to fully immerse yourself in a chef’s intended culinary experience.

Many of the options below are not exactly cheap, so if you’re looking for something that won’t wreck the wallet, consider Eater’s guides to restaurants with late-night specials or lunch-hour deals.

1. Hoogan et Beaufort

4095 Rue Molson, Montréal
QC H1Y 3L1, Canada
(514) 903-1233

Chef Marc-André Jetté (previously of Les 400 Coups) does self-proclaimed “rustic” takes on his previous haute-cuisine creations at this Rosemont destination, and it doesn’t disappoint (the in-house fire pit helps, too). Five courses will run $75, or $120 with wine pairing.

2. Montréal Plaza

6230 Rue St-Hubert, Montréal

(514) 903-6230
Visit Website

One of the most exciting restaurants on the scene in recent years, Montréal Plaza offers a fixed-price menu to share for $85 per person. With a borderline cryptic menu (items include “boudin + ?” and “meat tartare + crispy”), rest assured that the dishes will be unique, seasonal, and downright eccentric.

3. Île Flottante

176 Saint Viateur West Street, QC 2L3, St Viateur St W, Montreal

(514) 278-6854

When owners Sean Murray Smith and Nada Abou Younes converted Mile End restaurant Les Deux Singes de Montarvie into Île Flottante, people stopped and noticed. Murray serves up three versions of a vegetable-focused tasting menu at either $45, $65 or $85, depending on the number of services — but don’t expect boring vegetarian standards here, as he showcases produce in new and exciting contexts.

4. Prince

771 Rue Rachel E, Montréal
QC H2J 2H5, Canada
(514) 528-8555

Prince’s beautifully plated tasting menu will cost $75 for six services of classically French-leaning fare. There’s also a smaller $120 shared menu for two. It’s a BYOW so don’t forget your favourite bottle of French wine.

Those who are torn between ordering the hummus or the famous fattoush salad should go for the $95 tasting menu to get both, and fully capitalize on all the Syrian delicacies this Montreal favourite has to offer.

6. Provisions

1268 Avenue Van Horne, Outremont
QC H2V 1K6, Canada
(514) 508-0828
Visit Website

Simply stated, Provisions is a place that continues to shine. This Outremont restaurant doesn’t have a menu at all — every day, ingredients are written on a chalkboard and the chefs prepare surprise five-course ($65) or seven-course ($75) menus around them. Working with local producers, Provisions reminds its guests that all products were sourced with responsible and sustainable practices in mind.

7. Saint Sushi Bar (multiple locations)

Copy Link
424 Avenue Duluth E, Montréal
QC H2L 1A3, Canada
(514) 507-7537
Visit Website

Creativity abounds on this very affordable $34 tasting menu with items like the “Christmas Tree Tartare”: a cone made of tuna or salmon on a rice “biscuit.” Note: alcohol is only served at the Westmount location.

8. Le Mousso

Copy Link
1023 Rue Ontario E, Montréal
QC H2L 1P8, Canada
(438) 384-7410
Visit Website

The seven course tasting menu is the only menu option here — but far from limiting the experience, chef Antonin Mousseau-Rivard’s menu defines this establishment, with extraordinarily innovative uses of earthy Quebec produce. It runs at $140; wine pairings can be added on for an additional $55 or $90, depending on the number of glasses.

(514) 845-1595

Found in a nondescript building on the eastern edge of the Quartier des Spectacles, Bouillon Bilk is a veritable workhorse of Montreal’s fine-dining scene. The service here is wonderful and the private import wine list caters to each item on the tasting menu. It may not have the same degree of fame as some other big name locals, but it’s not to be missed.

10. Toqué

900 Place Jean-Paul-Riopelle, Montréal
QC H2Z 2B2, Canada
(514) 499-2084

Normand Laprise’s Old Montreal restaurant is a true incontournable on Montreal’s gastronomic scene, using exceptionally sharp technique to produce dishes that are essentially Québécois. It’s a pricy, yet worthwhile $142 for seven courses, with four wine pairing options available for extra. -Tim Forster

11. Pastel

124 Rue McGill, Montréal
QC H2Y 2E5, Canada
(514) 395-9015
Visit Website

An Eater Restaurant of the Year award-winner, co-owners Kabir Kapoor and Jason Morris are flying high in Montreal’s dining scene. This Old Montreal restaurant continues to impress for the flair and detail that go into each dish — the ingredients may often be simple, but the execution is sublime beyond reproach. Pastel offers the full “gastronomic experience” for $120, as well as a $59 option on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

12. Candide

551 Rue Saint-Martin, Montréal

(514) 447-2717
Visit Website

Located inside a converted church in the heart of Little Burgundy, Candide’s four-course tasting menu is paired with a wine list that’s in constant rotation. With a strong focus on local ingredients and being as seasonal as possible, chef-owner John Winter Russell plates ever-changing dishes that are at turns creative and delicate. In summer, take the option of a quiet, romantic evening on one of Montreal’s prettiest terrasses, adjacent to the back of the church.

13. Park

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

Chef Antonio Park needs no introduction: the well-versed sushi chef continues to set the bar with one of the top destinations for Japanese cuisine in the city. While the dinner omakase will set you back $95 per person, the lunch option starts at $65 per person, a relative bargain.
