Montréal Restaurant Guide

📍Ferreira Cafe
Took a quick trip to Montréal to check out the food scene and eat our way through the city, one cute cafe at a time. After extensive field research, I've compiled a list of some of my favourites during this visit. Unfortunately I wasn't able to indulge in all of the hottest spots, but here's a great start. 


1. Hôtel William Gray - Breakfast in Bed


Talk about waking up to a view. We enjoyed a beautiful breakfast in our hotel room, where everything was aesthetically pleasing and beyond satisfying. The room service menu items can also be enjoyed at the hotel restaurant, Maggie Oakes (located on the main floor).

2. Vieux-Port Steakhouse 


Fresh Lobster Linguini with an extra lobster tail for lunch. We stumbled into this restaurant upon arriving to Montréal, famished, looking for anything and everything to satisfy the hunger...and that we did. Would recommend to all seafood lovers!

3. Ferreira Cafe


Had the most pleasant dining experience at Ferreira Cafe, a Portuguese restaurant located in the heart of the city. Dinner consisted of six courses (if I remember correctly, I'll be honest, the meal was followed by a food coma); including fresh oysters, crispy octopus, braised beef pasta, the catch of the day, and a beautiful array of homemade desserts. I would kill for one (one-dozen that is) of their Portuguese tarts right about now.

4. Barley Bar


I finally had the chance to try an infamous cereal latte, and it was wayyyy better than I imagined. I'll be honest, I went for the aesthetic, stayed for the food, and walked away with the leftovers because it really was that good. If you enjoy some healthy eats, try the beet & goat cheese salad, avocado toast, and yogurt bowl. @ Barley, please come to Toronto!

5. Escondite 


I will never say no to tacos (unless-it's-pork-because-I-don't-eat-pork-but-apparently-it's-one-of-the-best-tacos-on-the-menu-but-anyways) Let's taco-bout it. We sampled a bunch of appetizers including the papaya salad, guacamole, chicken wings, and pork ribs(not-for-me-no-thank-you-but-also-apparently-really-good); my faves being the wings and guac. When it came time for tacos, I honestly didn't know where to start, my senses were in full gear and I was positively overwhelmed. Although I will say, between the pulled chicken, baja and steak tacos, I could always go for a couple of the perfectly grilled steak tacos!

6. Café Vasco Da Gama


A quick, healthy lunch break at Café Vasco, before heading out to explore the city. We had a couple of picks from their wide range of soups, salads, and sandwiches.

7. Kampai Garden

This was the one spot I was most excited to visit. I had seen photos of the food and interior online and couldn't wait to see if it lived up to the hype. It most definitely did. I had the best night here, and was beyond satisfied with every dish I tried. It's a tapas style menu with a range of flavours and textures. I've been craving the fried chicken ever since, and it may honestly be enough to book another trip back.
