Famous Restaurants in Canada

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

When it comes to Canada, famous restaurants you won’t want to miss are in Montreal, Quebec, Vancouver and Toronto. These cities have restaurants that some critics believe compete with the fine dining of big American cities like San Francisco and New York.

The island of Montreal boasts upward of 4,000 restaurants, some of which have received golden reviews from famous international food critics. Perhaps the most elegant and romantic choice is Chez Queuz, located at 158 St. Paul East. A trip to the restaurant really is like taking a journey back in time. It was built in 1862 and has velvet curtains, crimson carpet, and old-fashioned chandeliers. The fireplace is always burning in the main dining room and the service is great. All of the tables are adorned with fresh orchids and the silverware is finely polished. The restaurant’s wine list is anything if not extravagant, carrying as many as 300 titles. And if that’s not enough, the famous restaurant has won the Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator since 1996. Expect to pay upward of $45 per person, but the elegance and delicious dishes from the kitchen will make your experience well worth it.

Another famous restaurant in Montreal is Rib’n Reef, located at 8105 Decarie. Though passersby who see its radiant, glowing sign outside might think it’s a simple steak house, they are surely wrong. The extra large tables make staying awhile not out of the question. And the meat is only of the highest quality USDA-approved cuts. The shrimp, some have said, is almost exotic with is tender texture and brilliant flavor. And the beverage and dessert selection will have you oohing an ahhing. Not only will you enjoy piling on the calories more than any other eatery, but you can enjoy a glass of port along with a fine cigar, all while having a conversation with bar staff who’ve been on hand for as long as three decades.

When it comes to Toronto, you really can’t go wrong with Truffles. The restaurant is pricey, but well worth it if you’d like to experience the best in Canadian fine dining. It’s even been voted Toronto’s most popular restaurant. The food is absolutely exquisite. The spaghettini with truffle foam, some say, is by itself worth a trip to Canada for. Another favorite is the famous potato-crusted halibut. But besides the food, the service really sets Truffles apart from others famous restaurants in Canada. The wait staff has been described as having an amazing sense of humor, as well as being extremely friendly.

When in Toronto, you also will not want to miss Rodney’s Oyster House in the city’s downtown district. Among a long list of shellfish choices, you simply have to try the -‘Oyster Slapstick Chowder,’ which has been the delight of locals and world travelers for decades.
