Good eating around the Montreal metro’s Berri-UQAM station

Berri-UQAM is the busiest station of the entire metro network, with some 13 million journeys recorded in 2014. It serves the popular Latin Quarter and St-Denis, de Maisonneuve and Ontario East streets. In short, this station is something of a central point of the city. So here are a few good places for those looking for a table within 10 minutes' walk from the metro station.[Image credit: SDC du Quartier Latin]

Le Mousso

1023, rue Ontario E, Montréal, QC H2L 1P8

This restaurant has just been awarded four toques by the Gault & Millau guide, with Antonin Mousseau-Rivard also being given the title of tomorrow’s top chef. In short, it goes without saying that besides being beautiful (each dish is a work of art in itself), Chef Mousseau’s cooking is simply divine. Treat yourself to a good gourmet meal in this small restaurant (with just 34 seats): it’s worth it!


302, rue Ontario E, Montréal, QC H2X 1H6

It’s no coincidence that the burgers at Uniburger are among the most Instagrammed meals in Montreal, according to Narcity: because they are beautiful, tasty and totally juicy! They may not be revolutionary, but these burgers are addictive and they also took the Jury Prize at the 2013 and 2015 BurgerWeek.


1844, rue Atateken, Montréal, QC H2L 3L6

This Haitian restaurant has been open just a few months now and is already pulling in the crowds. It has to be said: you don’t exactly get Caribbean cuisine on every street corner in Montréal. Featuring the famous weighed bananas, fritters, griot, goat with vegetables, and fried fish, all accompanied of course with a “ti ponch”. And the atmosphere is always great!


1641, rue Saint-Denis, Montréal, QC H2X 3K3

Every time you pass Cinko, you’ll see the famous queue! So what’s going on in this restaurant? It’s simple: the entire menu is offered at a special price of $5! And no, we’re not talking about cheap food or a tapas format. Here, with two plates (3 for big appetites), you’re good for the evening. In short, it’s cheaper (and much, much better) than a McDonald’s! There’s also the cool Warhol-inspired decor and its atmosphere, which is fresh and dynamic. In short, we like! But be patient, because they don’t take reservations.


1112, boul de Maisonneuve E, Montréal, QC H2L 1Z5

Good BYOB restaurants are rare in the area, but I can recommend this one in particular: O’Thym. This is a French restaurant (gourmet bistro-style), featuring local products, where the menu changes with the seasons. We love the attentive service and reworked classics (including the tartare).

Juliette & Chocolat

1615 Rue Saint-Denis, Montréal, QC H2X 3K3

Okay, so it’s a classic, but for chocolate lovers (like me!), it’s also a must. Contrary to what one may think, they don’t just do chocolate-based things, so if you want to have a clear conscience, you can order a buckwheat ham/cheese pancake before falling into your decadent brownie, accompanied by a hot chocolate... Mmmm!


1635, rue Saint-Denis, Montréal, QC H2X 3K3

What could be friendlier than tapas? Here, the chefs take inspiration from around the world to create a menu that will send you on a journey... from the very first mouthful. There are even private rooms for groups of 15 to 100 people!

Pub Le Sainte-Élisabeth

1412 rue Sainte-Élisabeth, Montréal, QC H2X 3C6

This “secret” pub (well hidden away in an alley) is renowned for its huge terrace, or should I say its “interior garden”. Obviously, you don’t sit down here just to eat, but you can accompany your beer with pizza, poutine, cheese sticks, or chicken fingers, fish n' chips and Bernese sausages.

In recent years, Wellington Street has emerged to become one of the main arteries of the city of Montreal. Very popular with South-West residents, the area’s many unique, gourmet restaurants also attract Montrealers from around the island. Here are some great places for those looking for a table within 10 minutes’ walk of the metro station De L'Église. [Image credit: Kapas]
A unique and emerging neighbourhood, Saint-Henri is attracting more and more young adults settle there, and a host of local shops have emerged to serve these new occupants. Whether you’re in the area for business or pleasure, here's a list for those looking for a table within 10 minutes’ walk from the metro station Place-Saint-Henri. [Image credit:]
Located in the heart of Little Italy, the Jean-Talon Metro Station is sort of a central point of the city. Its surroundings are multicultural... and its restaurants, too! Here’s a list of locations for those looking for a good bite less than a 10-minute walk from the station or the Market.[Image credit:© ferenz]
