bars restaurants ou bien manger tard bons late night eats montreal

These bars and restaurants are places where the kitchens close later than usual!

Ever been stuck late at night wondering where to go for a good bite to eat?

It is often difficult to find a restaurant where you can get served after 11pm. With service ending most of the time before midnight, we often wonder where to go to satisfy those late-night cravings.

This list is for Montreal’s night owls, for those who are coming out of the theatre or a concert and want a bite to eat, for those working in the restaurant industry who finish late, or for those who are out on the town and don’t want to cook themselves a late-night meal.

And no! Fast food is not your only option late at night! We’re here to help you with a selection of addresses which offer great food at any hour of the night; various Montreal Institutions, izakayas, bars, breweries and restaurants of all kinds.

Our list of bars and restaurants where to eat late, or Montreal’s best “late night eats”:

Taverne Atlantic

If you’ve never tried Taverne Atlantic, the end of the evening is the time to do so! Not only is the space—designed by Alexandre Baldwin—beautiful, but the food served at Snack Bar Eddy (Taverne’s kitchen) is hella comforting. Open until 1 a.m., Taverne Atlantic offers an modernized snack menu: euro-dog, pogo, poutine and fries are on the menu, but it’s the pizza that really steals the show. Plus, the rooftop patio offers a sublime view of Mile-Ex. A place that is well worth a visit on Park Avenue.

BarBara Vin

Currently open from early morning to 12:30 in the evening, BarBara Vin has an elaborate menu that has something to satisfy every nighttime craving. Pasta, fish, plump polpettes, Matane shrimps and the classic antipasti of olives, parmesan fries and charcuterie, to name a few, will leave you wanting more after a few drinks. The place does not take reservations, first come, first served!

Montréal

Bar à Flot

Open until 1am on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and until 3am on Fridays and Saturdays, the Bar à Flot is a place that does not disappoint. Run by the Buvette chez Simone team, you can be sure to eat and drink well there, even late at night. The relatively new address builds on the Buvette’s reputation and offers a menu that highlights seafood. Even if the main purpose of the bar is not to eat, the food is quite good! Another stop to make on Park Avenue.

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. Isle de Garde is open until 2am.

Tiramisu

Newly opened and already a crowd pleaser, the new kid on the block in Chinatown is as beautiful as it is good. It offers an Italian menu with Japanese-inspired touches. Arancini with sushi rice, tonkotsu lasagna and pizza offered in six variations with habanero and yuzu sauce. Open until 1 a.m. Thursday through Saturday.

Bar Furco

Bar Furco is open until 3am, but the place closes its kitchen at 11pm. Arrive a few minutes early to order a few dishes from the menu, because they won’t disappoint you. The menu, concocted by chef Joëlle Trottier, changes often. The portions are generous and can be shared with friends. Bar Furco is also on our list of Montreal’s best bars with great food.

Brasserie Harricana 

Not far from the Jean-Talon market is the superb Brasserie Harricana. We love the place for its beautiful decor, outstanding craft beers, inventive ciders and its comfort food menu – snacks, appetizers, small plates, salads and more substantial dishes such as club sandwiches, burgers, lobster rolls, and more – offered until late every night. The establishment is one of the most beautiful microbreweries in Montreal. At Brasserie Harricana, you eat and drink very well. Photo Laura Boily-Auclair et Le Devoir

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 60’s 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. It closed temporarily during the pandemic.

Bar Loïc

In a magnificent building that is over 100 years old, the team of dynamic young people behind Loïc have opened what is now the most popular bar in the West End. In a simple and elegant decor by Kyle Goforth, the atmosphere is festive, and the gourmet menu is served until 1am. Think of Loïc as a warm and welcomingly sleek snack bar. Here, you can now enjoy a short menu by Liam Barron to pair with a glass from their finely curated list of natural, organic, and/or biodynamic wines, mostly from private imports, that changes regularly. They also have excellent cocktails and a very interesting whisky selection. Photo by Matthew Perrin

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, charcuteries, or regular specials, offered until late every night of the week.

Le Majestique

Le Majestique is one of the most festive and gourmet bars in Montreal. With a decor with just the right amount of kitsch, the place is almost always packed. Le Majestique offers a very interesting wine list and a short menu to enjoy on a drunken night. You can enjoy Choice Harbour oysters, some of the best fries in Montreal, outstanding baked whelks and other delicate small plates from Chef Dominic Lalonde. The staff is friendly, and the entire team is always ready to encourage your celebrations until 3am. Photo Majestique

Paulo et Suzanne is open 24 hours a day on Saturdays and Sundays, and until 3 a.m. on other days of the week. For over 30 years, the place has been offering some of the best fries in Montreal. You can also enjoy excellent classic burgers from a good Quebec cantine as we like them! The service is charming, the portions of fries very generous, and the prices modest. Perfect to satisfy your late-night cravings!

In Darling’s kitchen, chef Alejandro Vega (Jun I, Bouillon Bilk, Cadet) prepares delicious dishes to share. The address also offers excellent brunches on Saturdays and Sundays! It is now high on our lists of the best bars with great food, and the best cafés where you can eat well. With a food menu available until midnight or 2am depending on the day, it’s also one of the best late night eats in town and a great place to go for a Sunday date! Photo Alison Slattery

vinvinvin is a beautiful and colourful bar that brightens up the Petite-Patrie just right. A superb project from a dazzling team of experts who know what they’re doing! So that the wine doesn’t go to your head too quickly, the address also satisfies small hungers with a menu by Marina De Figueiredo. Here we enjoy delicious dishes to share, centered around one rule: eat well, eat local. The seasonal menu changes very regularly.

Dynastie

Dynastie

Dynastie has become a place of choice for two reasons (other than its succulent cuisine); to feast and to satisfy our cravings until the wee hours of the morning. The restaurants in Chinatown are known for their generally later closing times than elsewhere on the island, but Dynastie breaks all records. Open 7 days a week, they lock their doors at 3pm every night! A big hit for their wonton soup, shrimp dumplings, general tao and Yi mein noodles!

La Banquise

Since its opening on May 1st 1968, La Banquise has become a real landmark where Montrealers and tourists alike line up to enjoy more than thirty (!) different flavours of poutine, 24 hours a day! At all hours of the day and night, you can’t go wrong with a poutine at La Banquise.
