Looking for a quiet restaurant in Ol Montreal


I need some insight! My bf and I are looking for a nice quiet restaurant in Old Montreal, we'll be celebrating my birthday and the end of his professional examinations. We are already meeting some friends at the Suite 701 for drinks and we are looking for something more intimate and quiet for dinner for the two of us.

I looked around the boards for sugestions. I was thinking Le Club Chasse et Pêche but bf not big on the seafood and fish!

Thank for your help!

  1. Well it depends on what you are looking for price wise... But since you where looking at Club Chasse et Pêche why not try Chez L'Épicier? It is just a few doors down and very good and the food is plated beautifully ! (although I haven't been in a few years...)
    311 rue Saint-Paul East

      We don't have a limit for the price range. I didn't think of Chez L'Épicier, I have to say that the food looked yummy on their website! Thank for the suggestion!

      Does anyone has been there recently?

    2. Hmm I see a lot of things with meat only on the Club Chasse et Pêche menu (3 of the 5 mains actually)...

      Les 400 coups would be a good choice too (an amazing choice in my opinion!)

      Also Graziella, L'Auberge Saint-Gabriel, Accords... maybe Barroco ? I've never been... just saying that cause it's really small so maybe quiet.

        We stumbled upon Barroco while walking in the area. The place looked so romantic and charming. I made a mental note to check it out next time we are in town.

        Has anybody been?

          I have been to Barroco and it's lovely, but not quiet! The food is good though and there is this charming table inside a little stone alcove. Super cute.

            I really enjoyed Barroco. Small place (if not a bit cramped), decor is nice and the staff is friendly and capable. Food is great. I've only been twice and had lamb, oysters, bison tartare, paella and some plate of fish; they were able to deliver good flavor on the whole range of dishes so I would say you'll most likely be happy with anything on the menu.

        2. Hotel Nelligan resto has a quiet-ish and romantic-ish environment

            I've always had a good time at Bonaparte - despite mediocre reviews, my meals there have always been excellent, with great service and a very nice ambiance.
