Cute Terrasse restaurant in downtown Montreal $30-50 for 2 pp?
I am going out for dinner tonight with a friend, and I am looking for a cute terrasse in downtown Montreal. Anywhere in between Rene-Levesque and Sherbrooke St., Peel and Crescent.
We are on a budget, so we would like to keep it at under $50 for both of us (including a glass of wine each), tax & tip extra.
that is an extremely limited area with hardly any terraces (and 30 dollars for dinner including a glass of wine is almost unheard of for dinner downtown...)
Close by option that have terraces and will fit the budget:
1-Il Focolaio (across from the bay) for pizza
2- T for F in place des arts great bistro food...but at the high end of your budget
3- Any number of horrible places on crescent street
4- Alexandre on Peel ....overpriced but maaaayyyybe you could make it work if you dont order an app or dessert
5- The Keg
oh sorry I reread your post and realize you are asking for a terrace for 30-50 for two people (not 30-50 pp) including a glass of wine.....Honestly: Completely Impossible ....and not even just downtown; anywhere in Montreal
50$ for 2 is basically a pasta dish + glass of wine each at a place like weinstein and gavinos, or a burger and wine at more upscale place (in reference of a previous post of the newtown menu, where a fish and chip is 20$)
Cut your loses and go up to Santropol and its backyard terrasse.

Downtown? Not easy.
If you want to stick to your budget, you could do it but you'd have to venture out of downtown.
Old Montreal, You could try:
-Brit & Chips but no terasse
-Aziatik has a 5-7, a wine glass is 5$ and most of the dishes (NOT table d'hote) are below 20$. Plus their terasse is gorgeous, near a little patch of white flowers. Tax & tip will likely push you over the 50$ though.
In the latin quarters, you could try a number of pubs or microbrewery. They aren't normally known for their food, but the prices fit. Try Saint-Bock, they have a cute terasse and the food is above pub quality.
Whoa lotta great places mentioned here. I'd say Trois brasseurs is at the top of my list. Unfortunately a lot of the other great places are out in the plateau area on St-denis :S
