We arrived at Montreal late and was looking for a place to celebrate my wife's birthday. Our Airbnb host recommended Europea and we couldn't go wrong with this place. Sure enough, it was way beyond our expectation. We came without a reservation, but were seated a mere 15 minutes later even though there was a large office party going on.... More

unfortunately not a great evening for what was told us to be the best restaurant in Montreal. We got a table begind a door, very windy and cold. For this kind off restaurant service can be much better. For the somulier we have only good words. We are lucky to live in Europe and used to a better level. Sorry

My wife and I went to Europea on our honeymoon. The service was impeccable. We particularly enjoyed the cheese room. Every course of our meal was a work of art. We both highly reccomend Europea.

Husband and I went and each ordered the 12 course tasting menu. Warning- there are several courses that come before the official course, and we left with a bag of goodies. So much food! but we took 3.5 hours to dine and it was worth every minute and every penny. As a 30+ year vegetarian, I have never had a... More

We we greeted normally, but that is where normal ended. This is a one of a kind restaurant which caters to the presentation, the style and uniqueness of food. The severs were meticulous in making sure every aspect of your experience was first class. The prices are high, but after you leave, you say that was worth every penny. From... More

I experienced absolutely new flavours, textures, techniques that I couldn't enshrine existed. This experience sent me down the culinary rabbit hole to experience new flavours, new foods, and fear nothing culinary.

We went to Europea during the Montreal a Table. It offers a $69 menu with 5 courses. I was a great deal, and the food was good. A little too fussy. We started off with some amuse bouche of - maple cured meat (1“x1") hung on a cloth line, parmesan cheese lollipop, some popcorn, and then they offered us a... More

Europea was spot on and flawless. Before we even entered, they offered valet parking by a friendly gentlemen and they opened the door for us. After the complimentary coat check, we were brought to our table and the seats were pulled for us at the same time so neither had to wait for the other to sit first. The restaurant... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
