As the situation is constantly changing, we make every effort to keep our listings up to date in order to provide you with accurate and current information. We invite you to contact the restaurants to confirm that they are open before you travel. Thank you for your understanding.

It’s no secret that our mission at Tastet has always been to help you discover great places to eat and drink—from cafés and bars to restaurants and more—all over the city. Today, we’re heading into the heart of Montréal, in Côte-des-Neiges.

We partnered with the SDC Côte-des-Neiges to uncover all the neighborhood’s classics and hidden gems and introduce you to this wonderful district, its history and all it has to offer. 

We’ve concocted a guide that highlights the neighborhood’s multiculturalism and its natural, architectural, institutional and cultural heritage. It is an initiative of the SDC Côte-des-Neiges in collaboration with Tastet and made possible with the support of the city of Montréal. Ultimately, the SDC aims to promote the reach and stimulate the commercial dynamism of the district in order to contribute to its economic growth. This mandate is in line with Tastet’s own mission to help readers discover gourmet addresses in a transparent manner and support local talent.

Known as higher education hub with the Université de Montréal, HEC Montréal and Polytechnique Montréal campuses on its territory, the district also has great resources in the health sector: CHU Sainte-Justine, the Jewish General Hospital, St. Mary’s Hospital, the Institut universitaire de gériatrie de Montréal and the Institut Nazareth et Louis-Braille. 

And what would Côte-des-Neiges be without Saint Joseph’s Oratory, which just happens to be one of the city’s most popular tourist destinations? So much more than a place of worship for Montréal’s Christian community, it’s an institution for tourists from around the world.

The neighborhood’s multicultural side is deliciously reflected in its rich gastronomic diversity. Whether you’re in the mood for a quick bite with Korean flair, a casual drink with friends at a neighbourhood pub or a Russian-style table d’hôte, we’ve got you covered!

Farhat Boucherie

Sandwiches, grilled meats, lunch – $, $$. Opened in 1989, Farhat Boucherie et Grillades quickly established itself as an excellent sandwich shop-butchery-grocery store in the Côte-des-Neiges neighbourhood. One of the reasons is that you can eat delicious sandwiches without spending a fortune! The place doesn’t look like much, but instead of going to admire the decor, you go to taste the famous grilled meat of the house.
