For those of you that are looking for a local restaurant with conventional decor but with great food offering tasty and affordable this is probably the best place in Montreal. The y have a good selection of wines and the chef will surprise you with evry service.

Le Grain de Sel is a small restaurant, providing an intimate atmosphere without making one feel crowded in by other patrons. Waitstaff were attentive. The bar selection was not particularly extensive, but what they did have was very good. Our appetizers were excellent: I had fried mussels with mixture of wide noodles cooked perfectly with saffron, squash and orange; it... More

Having read WMarkR's remarks, I have very little to add: it would seem that we have the same tastes. It is a great value for money and the fact that it's out of the central buzz of downtown, parking is easy on the street very close to the restaurant - now that is a luxury in Montréal!

Why am I the only TA reviewer so far in 2014 to award Le Grain de Sel less than full marks? Well, being a resident and dining out as often as I do, I know how high the bar is set here in Montreal, and as positive a time as we had on our Thursday-night visit, I would not rank... More

An unexciting area of the Montreal suburbs is one of the last places you would expect to find a restaurant of this quality and style. The menu is original and exciting but with a few classics for those of a less adventurous nature, who would expect black pudding with chocolate, caramelised banana and confit garlic purée as an appetiser, which...

I made a reservation at Le Grain de Sel based on reviews from Trip Advisor and I was not disappointed. In fact both my husband and I think it was the best meal we had in the 4 nights we were in Montreal. We order the beet and goat cheese salad and escargot as appetizers. The escargot was cooked with... More

We returned to Le Grain de Sel because our last experience in July 2012 was so good. Our friends missed the last visit so we were happy they could make this one. Having heard so much about it, they were excited to be there. We called to make a reservation for 8:00 pm but the evening was full. The staff... More

My wife and I truly enjoyed our experience in this restaurant. She had a lamb dish and I had the Fish and Chips. I tried her lamb dish and all the favors blended together beautifully. My fish and chips were some of the best I have tasted, and I am a Brit. Further to this,the service was warm and efficient.... More

Le Grain de Sel is a small, boutique gourmet restaurant located in a quiet neighborhood, perfect for an intimate romantic dinner or a small group. The venue is a simple one-room dining room, decorated with large pop art prints and a few smaller modern oils. The dining area is separated from the kitchen by a wall of glass block, silhouetted...
