What's the most # of courses from a Tasting Menu that you've ever had in Montreal?

I just had a 10 courses... but in fact there were complimentary & such, and separate desserts adding up into around 15.

What's the most number of courses you have ever had, from a Tasting Menu? Where? How was your experience? How much, and was it worth it?

  1. I have had the 9-course tasting menu at Europea a few times, but it came to around 15 as well. It was great; small portions of wonderful food, and great service. Definitely worth it; I think it was around $90. You can also have it paired with the appropriate wines.

    They also have a chef's table - 25 courses for $250 per person, including 1/2 bottle of Champagne. The maitre d told me that it takes about 4 to 5 hours. I expect that it would be considerably more than 25.

      wow! thats amazing
      i have a question... are people who usually dine at fine-dining restaurants rich millionaires?
      like im just a student who loves to enjoy luxury n fine dining once in awhile (since its like $100 instead of $6 mcdonald's). i feel intimidated sometimes

      really, r u all like me or r u all usually ya rich business owners n such?

        I'm nowhere close to being a rich millionaire (but I can dream). Fine dining is a once in a while thing for me too.

        Of course, I am speaking for myself only.

          lol.. i wish i was rich business owner. I occasionally dine at fine-dining restaurants and i'm no where close to be one.. i'm just your average joe who has a 9-5 job in the IT field. I don't go every single weekend but once every few months, if you budget yourself properly, is acceptable. Granted if you're a starving student, 100$ a meal is a cardinal sin. don't worry, when i was a student, i would gasp at a 100$ bill for one person.

            I get pretty intimidated as well. I'm a student (a bit older), and don't mind spending money on a meal, but I look young and I can't help but feel a bit self-conscious.

            Just remember, you're there for the food. You have every right to be there as those 70-year old CEOs. And take your money elsewhere if the restaurant snobs you.

        2. Where did you have the 10 course meal? What was it like?
