The view from the windows of this elegant restaurant is very appealing, with Expo 67's Habitat dominating the skyline. The meals we had were less impressive. My express combo featured an adequate soup and a barely adequate roast beef sandwich. My wife's tilapia was also okay but nothing special.

We ate on the balcony on a sunny and pleasant day. The menu was attractive and the service was very good.

This bright room is set over in the Pointe-à Callière Museum in Old Montreal, overlooking the harbour. Open for lunch only and typical restaurant found in a museum : light but elegant fare with delicious soups and cheerful Miro inspired desserts, great service and noisy crowd. I just love to sip a glass of white wine there overlooking the waterfront.

L'Arrivage, is a restaurant located on the second floor of the Pointe à Callière Museum in Old Montreal, with views overlooking the old town and the port. Unlike other cafeteria style museum restaurants, it is an elegant yet accessible location, appropriate for a business lunch or friendly brunch. The occasion for my visit was a welcome brunch for an out... More

I had eggs benedict off the table d'hote menu and it was amazing. Service was good. And pricing was reasonable.

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

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.
