Probably one of the nicest museum restaurants I have ever visited, for three reasons; good food, good wine list, and great view with possible outdoor table. I would definitely recommend that you book your table before touring the museum as it gets busy and packed very quickly and is only open for lunch.

L'Arrivage is situated on an upper floor of a museum and it's a delightful place for brunch or lunch. The food is quite good, the service impeccable, with friendly staff, and the view is superb.

Had lunch with a few friends. We had the table d'hôte (21$) which was a cream of corn and bacon, Followed by the main meal of white fish (bar) with escargot risotto. We found the risotto was undercooked though, and a bit bland. Finished with a tiny chocolate soup and a soft chocolate square. Plus coffee. The service was good... More

Had the opportunity to visit this restaurant for lunch this week while a good friend was in town. The staff were very pleasant, and we were seated quickly, even without a reservation. We chose the specials of the day - my friend, the fish and myself the chef's special. The food came quickly, was very tasty, and the presentation was... More

Arrived as the restaurant was opening for lunch so that we could take our time visiting the museum in the afternoon. We were welcomed pleasantly and quickly shown to our table. (Our initial waiter was weak in English so another one came to take our order and serve us agreeably.) The bill of fare offered a specific wine for each... More

It was a beautiful sunny day when we visited Pointe-a-Calliere. As we arrived the restaurant after the busy lunch hours, we were lucky to get a table. The restaurant is on the top floor with a great view of water front on one side, and the mirrored walls on the other sides. The space looks open and cheerful. We had... More

A local suggested that we try the restaurant in this excellent regional museum, Point A Calliere, for lunch. It isn't open for dinner. The food was expertly prepared Quebecois and a great value. One doesn't need to buy a ticket to the museum to eat at the restaurant.

The best museum restaurant I've ever eaten in, L'Arrivage was a very pleasant surprise. We ended up there as a group of 7 after an enjoyable trip around the Pointe-a-Calliere museum, which is well worth a visit. Approaching 14:00, and being a sizeable group, I wasn't optimistic of getting a table. Although we had to wait a few minutes, the... More

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
