La Salle – La Campagnola

This Italian steakhouse got its start as a deli back in the early ’80s. They soon turned to sandwiches before transforming once again, this time into a fine dining restaurant. They prepare authentic Canadian beef the Italian way, all the while serving up some incredible pasta dishes.

If you are anywhere near NDG, do not even think of going somewhere else for barbecued chicken.

Chalet Bar-B-Q has been doing things the same way since 1944, and you simply do not mess with perfection.

This is the spot. No frills. No questions asked.

Address: 5456 Sherbrooke Street W
Hours: 4 to 9 pm

Le Plateau Mont-Royal – Bar à tapas Sorocco

This tapas bar provides customers with a friendly, relaxed ambience and some surprisingly generous portions.

Their menu, prepared by Chef Claire Bridel, includes cooked goat cheese salads, cauliflower salads, and Spanish tapas, all for a low price.

It’s no wonder this was deemed the best dining experience in Le Plateau.

Address: 4621 Saint Denis Street
Hours: Tuesday to Wednesday, 5 to 9:30 pm; Thursday to Saturday, 5 to 10:30 pm

Little Burgundy – Liverpool House

This side project restaurant, opened by Joe Beef co-owners Dave McMillan and Fred Morin, managed to beat out the likes of Foiegwa, Satay Brothers, and Joe Beef itself on Tripadvisor.

Although it has been called “the restaurant people go to when they can’t get into Joe Beef,” Liverpool House has its own special place in Montreal’s food landscape.

The gourmet eatery even played host to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and President Barack Obama back in 2017.

And if it was good enough for them, it might just be worth trying.

Address: 2501 Notre-Dame Street Ouest
Hours: Tuesday to Saturday, 5 to 9 pm
