Oysters in Montreal

I tried to do some searching but couldn't find a thread.

Where are your favorite places for Oysters in Montreal?

Places that specialize in them?

Thank you.

      Nice tip. Thanks.

      What about restaurants?

        I should add that their oyster counter has seating. They charge $2.25/oyster and have deals on a dozen and up. They also have "buck-a-shuck" oysters on occasion.

    2. I'm not really an aficionado, but i enjoy oysters once in a while. I've had them at Maestro SVP, Liverpool House/ Joe Beef, Icehouse, Le Filet, and Pizzeria Magpie, and have also seem them at Greasy Spoon. I imagine Garde Manger & the Bremner would do them too. These places vary a lot in fancy-ness, overall quality & for places that really specialize in oysters, I would say Maestro. I'm sure there was a thread about oysters fairly recently; not sure why it's not coming up.

        1. I like to buy my own, and usually head for La Mer for my oysterish cravings...

          1. How about Marche 27 on Prince Arthur W.They always have 3 or 4 good choices.
