Restaurant Raza: A great and different take on high cuisine; a must for visitors-Choose this over Toque any day

This was one of the best restaurant experiences I have had in Montreal. The reataurant is somehow not crowded, despite a very reasonable prix-fixe only dinner menu. The food was phenomenal. We had some amazing dishes. An arepa corn showder which was comparable to any lobster bisque I have had. A delicate and delicious cooked forever style short rib with a beautiful truffle sauce. Several other dishes that were all fabulous. Great desert. We had a fabulous 2007 Terrunyo Carmenere which was quite unique and delicious production of this ancient French grape that was once used in Bordeaux wines and is now rarely seen in Europe. The prix-fixe was under $60, and it was absolutely delectable. The chef was gracious and friendly. ANd the bread was extraordianary.

    1. I agree. I visited once and found the restaurant to be one of the better ones in Montreal with reasonable prices. Chef Navarrete has a very good palette and technique. The only quibble I had was the slow service despite the restaurant only having 2 or 3 other couples while I was there.
