We interviewed Marie-Eve. Marie share’s with us her insider tips on what to do in Montreal for those looking for the best things to see and do, where to eat, stay, drink, and play.

Why visit Montreal? 

Because it’s got the best of both worlds: the modernity of North America, its fast-paced life yet the romantic Old-World charm from Europe, along with almost 400 years of history. 

What to Do in Montreal 

Old-Montreal holds more than a handful of Montreal icons, including; Bonsecours Market, Place Jacques Cartier, Notre-Dame Basilica and Saint-Paul Street. 

Best Neighbourhoods to Explore in Montreal 

I’m a Plateau Mont-Royal girl at heart, and I have a hard time recommending anything else. It represents Montreal with its international restaurant scene.

Where to Eat in Montreal 

I can suggest a handful of my personal favourites, starting with the Usine à spaghetti on Saint-Paul Street in Old-Montreal. The décor is absolutely phenomenal.

Where to Drink in Montreal 

There are many great places to drink in Montreal, starting with Amère à boire on Saint-Denis Street, which serves great micro brewed beers, both local and international. 

Best Place for a Night on the Town in Montreal 

Montreal has a very lively Show District which presents dozens of shows every night, whether it’s music concerts, opera, stand-up comedians or theatre.
