3 Nights Montreal, 2 Nights Quebec City

I need good food, not overly expensive for three nights in downtown Montreal and 2 in Quebec City. Never been before - enjoy all cuisines.

  1. Having visited very recently, you must go to Au Pied du Cochon. Get a Metro pass, jump on the Orange Line to Mont Royal or Sherbrooke and walk about 10 minutes to PDC.

    It was the best meal I had on my trip. You can splurge on this meal, and eat more frugally on the rest of your trip. It will probably set you back up to $150 for two people if you go all out, but it's worth it.

    If you want to do this restaurant for under $100, get the seafood platter, one entree, two cromesquis, beer instead of wine, and skip the dessert. You will leave just as satisfied.

    1. Don't limit yourself to downtown Montreal. This is a compact city and metro (or even taxi) is a quick way to increase the number of delicious options.

        I don't mind traveling for food. I've gone to New Orleans and San Fran for food. Fantastic by the way.

          I'd suggest searching the board then, there's lots of similar tourist-oriented threads asking about the places not to miss.

      2. I am a big fam of Michael Ross at Mas Cuisine in Verdun. Great food at reasonable prices in his 20 - 25 seat place. I recommend it highly.
