Where to Eat Late: Montreal’s best “late-night eats”

It is becoming harder and harder to find late night eats in the city. The notorious labour shortage is certainly behind the reduced hours of service. In this list, you will find restaurants open until midnight, or even all night for some. Perfect for night owls who like to break bread on European time.

Today we present you the various Montreal institutions, bars, breweries, and restaurants of all kinds where you can be served late at night, and in some cases, in the middle of the night.

For post-partying cravings, check out our list of the best places for munchies.

Montreal’s best “late night eats”:

Isle de Garde

Known and loved for its beer, the Isle de Garde Brewery also has a full menu that goes beyond fries and burgers. While those classics are on the menu, dishes range from grilled octopus to fresh ricotta pasta to buffalo tartare. L’Isle de Garde is open every day as of noon, and closes at 1 a.m. on Sunday and Monday, and 2am. every other day of the week.

Bar Henrietta

Bar Henrietta is a beautiful neighbourhood bar where you can eat and drink very well and affordably, especially for Laurier Street West. Located in the former Baldwin Barmacie, Bar Henrietta welcomes you into a 60s tavern-inspired setting. Here you can enjoy excellent wines, classic and house cocktails, and the bar offers a fantastic food menu available until 3am most days of the week. We come here for the lively music and the casual yet festive atmosphere. Note that the writer is madly in love with one of the owners of this establishment.

Montréal

Buvette Chez Simone

Buvette Chez Simone is a pioneer in the category of “bars with great food”. Montreal’s classic bar offers generous dishes to share in a festive atmosphere. We love the Buvette for its relaxed yet lively atmosphere at all times. The service here is warm, the atmosphere always vibrant, and the glasses of wine are priced right. We eat delicious dishes such as their famous chicken (whole or half), fries, Greek salads, cheeses, charcuterie, or regular specials, offered until midnight from Thursday to Saturday.

4869 Avenue du Parc
Montréal

L’Express

L’Express is a true Montreal institution that has built a solid reputation over the years. The menu offers classic comfort food with local flavours, and changes very little with the seasons. You feel at ease in this restaurant thanks to the warm atmosphere and the expert waiters. The restaurant is open until 1am from Tuesday to Saturday!

Le Majestique

Le Majestique is one of the most fun and gourmet bars in Montreal. With a perfectly kitschy decor, the place is almost always bustling. Le Majestique offers a very interesting wine list and a short, but delicious menu to accompany your drinks. You can enjoy some of Montreal’s best oysters, outstanding baked whelks, and other delicate small plates. The kitchen is open until 2am.  

4105 Boulevard Saint-Laurent
Montréal

Paulo et Suzanne

Paulo et Suzanne is open until 3am every day of the week. For more than 30 years, the house has been offering some of the best fries in Montreal, as well as classic casse-croûte burgers, just the way we like them! The service is charming, the portions of fries very generous, and the prices modest. An ideal place when the late night cravings hit!

Montréal

Gibeau Orange Julep

The Orange Julep restaurant was opened in 1932 by restaurateur Hermas Gibeau. Famous for its huge orange structure – which only appeared in 1945 – this icon has endured even after the restaurant moved to Decarie in 1966. Once a drive-through on rollerblades, the retro establishment is still known for its classic fast-food menu and, most importantly, its secret orange juice recipe! Open until 3am Monday to Thursday, and until 4am from Friday to Sunday.  

7700 Boulevard Décarie
Montréal

Patati Patata

The concept of Patati Patata is very simple: a pataterie that serves classic snacks at low prices until 2am (!) We come here to enjoy a tasty burger, a satisfying poutine, or some humble fries (which are some of the best in the city) in a laid-back, friendly atmosphere.  

4177 Boulevard Saint-Laurent

Rouge-Gorge is one of the busiest wine bars in town. Located in the heart of the Plateau Mont-Royal, you’ll be tasting more than just good wine until late. The kitchen closes at midnight on weekdays, but serves until 1am on weekends.

Opened over a century ago, the Montreal Pool Room exudes nostalgia as much as it does frying oil. An iconic greasy spoon as we like them, but especially as our parents liked them. A perfect place to satisfy your late night cravings. Note that the place is cash only.

L'idéal bar & contenus

L’idéal bar & contenu, as its name suggests, is an inclusive and hybrid space, part wine bar, part club and part creative studio.

151 Rue Ontario East
Montréal

Bar Palco

The clientele of Bar Palco is quite eclectic, but one feels the shared interest to have a drink or several and enjoy a good bite to eat. Good food, because even if Bar Palco is still a bar, the chef Valérie Doucet (ex Auberge Saint Gabriel), in collaboration with the company L’art des vivres, prepares a nice and concise menu.

4019 Rue Wellington

Dynastie has earned a place of choice in the list of the best Chinese restaurants in Montreal.
