Montrealers take their appreciation for summer to another level – with our winters, who can blame us? So it only makes sense that restaurants up their game to provide the best experience possible. After all, the summers are short and there are so many places to go in Montreal.
So which Montreal terrasse is the best? Allow us to make a few recommendations – it is what we do 😉
Finding just three was not easy, so we made our decision even more difficult by breaking it down by neighbourhood. We concluded that the ‘usual suspects’ (downtown and the old port) should each have their own hot-spot, but we also wanted to feature the up-and-coming Shop Angus hood in and around Hochelaga.
Since folks in Hochelag don’t always want to make the trek downtown, we thought Labarake would please those in this eastern region of the island. With a gorgeous terrasse that seats +100 comfortably and a fancy new updated menu, what’s not to love?
When you wanna go out, but don’t want venture to a downtown joint, Labarake is the east-end Montreal terrasse you’ve been looking for.Labarake photo courtesy of: montrealguestlist.com
Hailing from the corner of De Maisonneuve and Crescent – also known as – the most frequented by tourists and heavily promoted street downtown Montreal, you will find Le Newtown. In the spirit of summer and Grand Prix Weekend, we bring you one of downtown Montreal’s hottest, most sought-after terrasses, and it’s just minutes away from the Bell Centre and/or your office.
This summer, Le Newtown is bringing a strong mojito game. If you love ceviche, tacos, and a great view of the action, this is the spot for you.
Old Montreal is surely charming during those summer months, isn’t it? We all know there are a zillion and one restaurants who would love to seat you and your party in and around the Jacques Cartier square, but what about a sweet spot by the water with loads of space to sprawl and explore?
If this sounds more your style, then you might want to book your evening at Terrasses Bonsecours!
Bonus: if you’re going on a date, the port wins major points for that romantic ‘wow’ factor.Terrasses Bonsecours
So which terrasse is your style?
