Restaurant L’Orignal is tucked a few steps below street level in a historic building on a sleepy side street in Old Montreal. We’ve been serving elegant comfort food and inventive dishes inspired by Quebec’s vast terroir since 2008. Our menu changes often in order to elevate seasonal ingredients. We choose our suppliers in consideration of the quality of their products as well as the sustainability of their practices.

But a restaurant is more than outstanding food, wine and cocktails. When you visit us, you can also expect…

    Serveuse très sympathique et les frites sont excellentes. La musique des années 60 et 70 est agréable et pas trop envahissante. Bel endroit pour les gens qui aiment la cabane au Canada. Je crois qu'il est préférable de prendre le menu régulier, car la cuisine les maitrises davantage.

    Our new favourite! Kat and I loved everything from the warm and cozy wood cabin ambiance to the 80s music. The food was incredible, with every mouthful a delight. Service was friendly, accommodating, and attentive. Drinks (cocktails around $15) were excellent. It's quieter before 7:30 and the entrance is a bit off the beaten path (I did not see if there's an alternative, wheelchair-accessible entrance). We walked 9km in the downtown/old Montreal core, looking for a decent place to have dinner, and ironically, this one was just behind our hotel. Like, literally right behind it. We both chose from the daily specials. Kat had the sea bass, which had a parsnip puree and seafood chowder bed. It was fantastic and she loved every bite. I had the duck with pumpkin puree and a fantastic mole sauce. Dessert was an incredible sticky toffee pudding and a mousse that Kat was very cagey about sharing, it was that good. With the two entrees and desserts, a glass of wine and four cocktails, dinner came to a little over CDN$200. Service was perfectly attentive, with water being constantly refilled, empty glasses and plates taken promptly, and friendliness as warm as the ambiance. It's our new must go-to in Montreal.
