Nothing quite invokes the holiday spirit like fine wine, delicious food, and, if you’re lucky, not having to do the dishes. But most Montreal restaurants shut down for Christmas Day or, in some cases, for an extended winter break. That said, some solid food options around town have you covered for December 25 — many with special menus to boot.
Old Montreal and Chinatown are the most reliable bets for eating out on the day — as are many hotel restaurants around town. But you can also head to the Plateau for Afghan cuisine at Khyber Pass, Park-Ex for some North Indian fare at Chand Palace, or to the Julep for something that feels oh so Montreal.
Most restaurants on this guide are also open on Christmas Eve and other days around the holiday, but check their websites or social media for precise details.
