Le Reservoir isn’t just another brewery or pub. There, we enjoy such delicious food that it is now on our list of the best bars in Montreal where you can also eat very well. Although the kitchen is temporarily closed due to Covid, we can’t wait to go back and indulge in their delicious hot chicken sandwich, which remains authentic and respects the original recipe to the letter. With one of the house beers, it’s a near perfect meal!
