Montreal Seafood Restaurant
I am looking for a Montreal seafood restaurant for my father and his friend/business colleague. They are in their late 50s and would not like anything too trendy, however, modern is fine as is traditional (French or Mediterranean would be good too). They are looking for a good value meal (i.e. they are willing to spend $ but for something really good). My father is a vegetarian but eats seafood so it must be something that has a number of vegetarian and/or seafood choices. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
The original Milos (NY is an offshoot of MTL) is there...
Great portugese spot which has a lot of fish, but is not a fish retaurant perse....Ferrera Cafe
my number one is Restaurant Symposium on du parc
simple but outstanding, consistant and not milos $$$
I would add my voice to the recommendation for Milos. Wonderfully cooked seafood in a mediterrean style. I am assuming, though, that when you say $ you really mean $$$$.
Otherwise, in old Montreal, there is Le Nantua. A classic seafood restaurant in more of a french style. It features some staff from the former Chez Delmo.
Actually, now that I think about it. I think that La Chronique suits your request to a tee. A very refined restaurant that specializes in cooking seafood to perfection.
Milos should definitely be on your short list. And you won't suffer sticker-shock if you opt for weekeday lunch ($20, IIRC) or Sunday prix fixe ($35).
In addition to the above reccos, consider the often overlooked Delfino (1231 Lajoie, 514 277-5888) in Outremont. A tiny family-run restaurant -- mom or son out front, dad in the kitchen -- that serves up excellent, simply prepared seafood at reasonable prices. It's been a while since I've been but have heard no reports of its falling off.
