A challenge for Montreal CHers - no reservations AND kids.

LearningHow | Jul 20, 2011 06:16 AM

Visiting Montreal with a fairly large group of 12 (6 adults / 6 kids ranging from 1 to 7 years) for 3 days in August.
Some of the kids in the group are VERY well behaved and used to eating in fancier restaurants.. and others are not.
Therefore we don't have a set itinerary for meals -- with some of the toddlers the parents may decide to head back to the hotel for nap time, so any meals may involve all of us (most likely lunch) and other meals may just have a few of us.

This makes making reservations difficult, but at the same time we don't want to be eating at fast food restaurants the entire weekend.

We plan on trying La Banquise as the kids are poutine-eating monsters (are reservations necessary?) as well as Shwartz as it'll be the kids' first trip to Montreal.

We'll be staying at Le Centre Sheraton, but it doesn't necessarily need to be in that area.
We plan on hitting some of the usual tourist spots (Montreal Planetarium and Biodome, etc).

Any other recommendations would be appreciated.
