We follow the French tradition of the *Réveillon de la Saint-Sylvestre* which means that restaurants are offering a long, late and luxurious meal that ends around 11 or 11h30 pm, just in time for the new year arrival and the champagne glass with confettis, party favors, etc.
So many restaurants around are offering that and if they are in Old Montréal they are close to the Old Port where fireworks will happen. Many people just dart out from the restaurants just after midnight to watch most of the fireworks and then come back to the restaurant for the final leg of the hoopala which, actually winds down quite shortly afterwards. Restaurant Réveillons are usually over by 1 a.m. quite different from the clubs and bars that can last much longer.
So if you let us know about your budget and about youf feeling in being in the crowd of onlookers for the fireworks or if you would prefer a calmer réveillon in other parts of the town.
