Offering an unparalleled experience, Le Club Chasse et Pêche is one of Montreal’s essential restaurants where you can expect classic French fare executed with the highest levels of finesse and precision. Stepping into the restaurant is transformative, making you feel a part of some prestigious society. Take a seat in the elegant dining room and choose from classics like seared foie gras with brioche and cherries or Halibut with asparagus, morels and béarnaise. A pricey bet to be sure, but a measly price to pay to be part of the club.
There’s no doubt in our minds that Old Montreal restaurants hold firm footholds in the pantheon of best places to eat in town. A neighbourhood that’s one half a tourist attraction and the other pricey condos and offices might not seem like it’d reach the top of anyone’s list, but it’s hard to deny the quality of food this area’s wallet-gouging steakhouses, game-changing Italian restaurants and creative fine dining—so fine in fact that we’d deem some of them Michelin star-worthy. Even casual breakfast and brunch spots here are demanding of a taste. There’s so many good places to tuck in that it might seem like there’s too many to count, but taste, test and count ‘em we did.
