Located near the Botanical Gardens, Biodôme and Olympic Stadium, this family-owned restaurant has been catering to customers for three generations. It's not surprising, considering the quality of its food, congenial atmosphere and reasonable prices. Dishes include many Italian staples, such as various pastas and pizzas. The house specialty is Lamb Francesco named after the original owner.
The bright orange walls and the boldly colored curtains of this eatery portray a very vibrant and young atmosphere. One of the few Portuguese restaurants in Canada, O Cantinho is popular and a value for your money. Come for the grilled sardines and fresh fish preparations. The menu, though limited, has enough items to suite all palates.
Café Extase is a chic little bistro in the eclectic Villery area. With its comfortable leather seats, high ceilings, and lovely cloth napkins, it's definitely more refined than your regular coffee shop. One of the perks is the copious daily French Canadian breakfasts with choices of omelets, sausages, crepes, fresh fruits, English muffins and more. Unpretentious meals for an unpretentious cost.
This little no-fuss joint is owned by a Peruvian family, has a French name, and serves Italian food: peculiar, but the combo seems to work! It is famous for its wood oven pizzas, and the roast chicken platter, Pollo alla Brassa, is a big hit with patrons too. The ambiance is not at all trendy, but the spacious, airy interior strikes the right chord; Peruvian statues and bare brick walls add a touch of warmth to the place. Best of all, you can bring your own wine along for a minimal corkage fee. Closing times vary.
Poutine is a dish that originally developed in Quebec but has now spread all over Canada & even parts of the United States. Variations of this fast food are found at Poutineville, in addition to other fast foods like burgers & sandwiches. The selection of poutine on offer can be customized according to the tastes of the patron. There is also a wide variety of alcohol to choose from at the Baubien outlet.

You can also stay for a fair-trade espresso and eat lunch, choosing from various sandwiches, salads, pizzas or quiches. The staff at La Miche Dorée often recognize the people coming in since there are a lot of regulars. Who knows? Maybe you’ll end up joining the ranks.
With the feel of a Mediterranean country kitchen and atmosphere that is homey and friendly, Byblos Le Petit Café is the place to go for inexpensive, home-style Iranian meals. Seating is comfortable and casual, so do not be surprised if you are invited to linger with the owner and his relatives.
Food is the focus at this Northern-Plateau neighborhood favorite. The traditional French bistro fare includes a wonderful steak-frites and other rotating specialties. The décor is minimal but not cold, which is perfect for a restaurant where the clientele has come only for the meal. This is one of a handful of excellent French restaurants in Montreal where you can bring your own wine, a policy that results in both good value on the menu and outstanding value in your glass.
This cozy East End neighborhood restaurant wears its Quebecois heart on its sleeve, or rather on its menu. It is a family affair here, and the kids are welcome to share in the festivities. You cannot go wrong with an all-day breakfast menu and genuine Quebec culinary specialties such as Meatball Stew and Shepherd's Pie. Throw in an inexpensive pitcher of locally brewed beer and the experience is complete. It's a little-known Montreal institution.
This upper-Plateau gem provides sensational French cuisine at outstanding prices. With its intimate, casual setting and chalkboard menu, it is perfect for a romantic evening.

Main courses feature duck, veal, beef, pork and lamb dishes, with undertones of port and fruit glazes throughout, while the dessert menu offers more French standards.
You can taste one of the best tapas in Tapeo, a Spanish restaurant in Montreal. Head Chef Marie-Fleur St. Pierre prepares a variety of Spanish dishes giving it a very authentic taste. A wide collection of Spanish wines compliment the food, making it more delicious. The restaurant is very well designed with the bar made of wood and tables adjoining it making it look very different. A very artistically designed place since you will find a lot of good paintings with different themes hanging on the wall in bright light.
Café Bistro L'Enchanteur is a laid-back bistro serving comfort food in an exotic atmosphere. The menu changes every week, but the freshness of the ingredients is always consistent, due in part to the restaurant's close proximity to the Jean-Talon Market. Affordable and unpretentious, it features a beautiful covered terrace that benefits from a cool shade, a refreshing spot in the summer to enjoy their homemade red or white sangria.
