The Quartier Général is one of the good bring-your-own-wine restaurants of the Plateau Mont-Royal neighbourhood. It offers a nice selection of appetizers and the option of à la carte dishes or a set menu. The service is professional, appealing and friendly. It is best to reserve one week in advance.

This du Parc Avenue restaurant, steps from Laurier Avenue, was converted into a bring-your-own-wine restaurant at the beginning of 2013. The formula works quite well, judging by the traffic. The cuisine is simple and refined.
