Restaurant similar to Toque

  • 8

I am traveling to Montreal and was wondering whether someone would advise me on a restaurant with food similar or better than Toque. I am not looking for value deals, just good food. Thanks.

  1. Dunno about current practice but it used to be that when Toqué! was booked solid, they'd refer turned-down reservers to La Chronique. Though the food isn't consistently memorable at either place, I've generally found the experience to be more enjoyable at La Chronique.

    1. For high-end, there's Europea.

      and as carwell wrote, La Chronique is very nice also.

      1. I havent been yet but Toque opened Brasserie T! which is supposed to be a more casual version.

          1. A couple of months ago I had a very pleasant meal at Bistro Cocagne on St-Denis Street where Toqué! used to be before moving to the Old Montreal location.

              Thank you for all your suggestions. I tried Toque, and Europea last weekend. I was quite disppointed at Europea in both food and service. As they were very busy that day, I can forgive the service. But I think the quality and taste of the food is not comparable to Toque by a margin, in the way the dish is designed to how it's prepared. I will need to check out La Chronique next time. Thanks again for the suggestions.
