Where to eat in Montreal? We’ve got you covered. The city’s best food tour takes you to at least 6 of your local guide’s favourite eateries and watering holes. From artisanal charcuteries to thirst quenching craft beers, discover the surrounding areas of Jean-Talon, our largest food market on our walking tour!

Tour Description:

Over the years Montreal has held a reputation as a city that loves to eat, and eat well. A trip to the Jean-Talon Market helps the outsider grasp the fact that farm-to-table is nothing new in town. Together we will sample some tasty regional delicacies and meet the producers who take pride in the quality and distinction of their harvest.

Word of warning: come hungry! Don’t believe us? Here is some solid advice from one of our customers:

“Food selections were excellent. Length of tour was sweet. Overall, A+!! Make sure you show up hungry!”

– Fanafina, California

Strolling through the adjacent areas you will gain a better understanding of why diversity is synonymous with Montreal. The Vietnamese neighbor the Italians and further east the Latinos share the streets with the Maghrebis. Sit down for a full-flavored tasting at the city’s favorite Salvadoran hole-in-the-wall.

The “Mile-Ex” district is a peculiar part of town that has boomed in recent years. Industrial buildings sit next to bungalows and architectural firms.

Here, young entrepreneurs are reshaping our culinary scene. We will savor the newest craft brews and learn about the progressive coffee renaissance one sip at a time. Wrap up your day sharing comfort food with your new friends and set off on your own adventure with a list of our preferred spots as we leave you at the doorstep of Little Italy.

Our cheat sheet will tell you where to find the best poutine or which microbreweries we love, all of our must eat spots, ones we’ve frequented a bit too often. Here is a great review to help you find out what you are getting into:

“The amount and variety of foods was much more than we expected and significantly better than the 20 other food tours we have taken all over the world.”

– Bigeye, Chicaco IL

Frequently Asked Questions

Should we eat beforehand? How much food are you serving up?

Yes, this isn’t a blood test. Eat breakfast, consider the start time of your tour. Though the tastings vary in size the whole experience will be a hearty meal’s worth of food but you will be able to walk after.

Does this tour start and end at the same location?

We end about a 15 minute walk from our departure point. On our neighbourhood recommendation list there will be a map or just ask your guide for help to get where you need to be. You’ll receive starting directions when you book.

Should I leave my guide a tip?

Yes, if they did a good job it is customary to drown them in money.

Can we book a private tour?

Sure! This way.

What if I’m vegetarian, can’t eat dairy etc. Is this tour for me?

Do you still like food and seeing the neighbourhoods? Then yes. Let us know of all SERIOUS allergies/restrictions when booking and we’ll do our best to accommodate at each of our food/drink stops. If you simply don’t like something, that’s between you and the food group.
