Culinary Adventures in the City



If the name Stellina sounds nostalgic, what you find on the plate is also rooted in the culinary tradition of the boot of Europe. The concept of the Old Port restaurant is to offer forgotten classics of Italian cuisine. Pasta is obviously the highlight of this Saint-Jacques Street address. Stellina is a pastificio—a fresh pasta factory. Thus, almost all the pasta you will find on your plate is made by hand, on site. A large bay window allows you to admire the skilled handiwork of the artisans.




Snowdon Deli

Looking for famed Montreal smoked meat without having to endure the snaking queues? Family-owned Snowdon Deli is a circa-1942 establishment that offers the city’s iconic smoked meat on mustard-smothered rye in addition to matzo ball soup, chopped liver, latkes, knishes, and blintzes — minus the wait time. Inside, expect a no-frills atmosphere where regulars squeeze into booths, chatter flows from behind the deli counter, and veteran employees ensure everything goes off without a hitch.




Vin Mon Lapin

Perennially packed, Mon Lapin is one of the hottest tables around, especially after earning the No. 1 spot on the Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants list in 2023 and 2024. The menu changes frequently, following the whims of chefs Marc-Olivier Frappier and Jessica Noël, but dependably spotlights farm-fresh veggies and seasonal seafood, including favorite items like the Croque-Pétoncle (a crisp scallop sandwich), leek conservas with chips, and a ​layered buckwheat cake. Reservations are strongly recommended.




Terrasse William Gray

A terrace above it all. As soon as you step outside, you’ll be treated to a breathtaking view of Place Jacques-Cartier, the St. Lawrence River and the glittering Montreal Ferris Wheel. Celebrate the season with an unparalleled dining experience in Old Montreal. The Terrasse du William Gray offers a chic, warm and unique atmosphere.
