Montreal trip report - Xmas in Montreal with Baby

Lisa | Dec 28, 2004 07:13 PM

Hi all,

Thanks for all the great suggestions for our trip to Montreal. We had purchased a Luxury link package for a three night stay over Xmas in old Montreal. The challenge was that we were bringing our 4 month old baby. We managed to find some good eats without resorting to the Denny's (the trick was to make rezzies for 5:30 so that we could have a nice - albeit quick - dinner with her and put her to bed by 7:30).

Our two favourite lunches were at Olive et Gourmando in Old Montreal (AMAZING sandwiches) and Schwartz's for smoked meat (we went early - 11 am before it got too busy).

For dinner we went to Fonduementale on St-Denis -- the Japanese fondue was delicious. It was a three-course meal with a cheese fondue, then a mix of shellfish, beef and veggies in a miso broth that you cooked yourself and a chocolate fondue for dessert. MMMM!

Another memorable dinner was at La Milsa. It is a Brazilian-style churrascaria downtown. While not as good or authentic as rodizio I have had in Brazil, the meat was pretty good.

Dinner at our hotel was included in our package (Verses, hotel nelligan) was also tasty but was WAY too overpriced in our opinion. Also, the portions are VERY small.

All in all, Montreal was a great city for eating!
