In the summer, guests can dine on a covered patio bordering a peaceful pedestrian street.
Love and precision, warmth and refinement, but in the end, Candide is an excuse to make people smile.
"I love the relaxed feel of this place where you can have a real conversation with friend. I definitely would return and recommended to everyone! Love the cuisine and the philosophy behind it. John WR really try to reduce food waste."
Absolutely incredible. Had one of the best meals of the year. Thanks to everyone there for making such a great experience.
Exceptional culinary experience in its simplicity but with an explosion of taste, and wit such harmonious wine paring, with a most friendly service.
Les plats WOW
Le seul problème c'est qu'on nous les a expliqués 3 et même 4 fois
Cela aurait très bien être 1 fois et réponse aux questions par la suite si nécessaire
Mais l'ensemble de l'expérience est tout de même remarquable
Warm, truly warm authentic, lovely staff. So welcoming. They are passionate about food, and about wine. The food is superb, the fresh bread divine, and the wine is fabulous. Did I mention the service is great?!
The ambience is warm and relaxed with natural textures of wood, stone and plants. Lovely.
We ate at Candide in September. I enjoy bold and creative cuisine, and Candide did not disappoint. It was my first time there, and I will return for sure in the summer to enjoy the patio. I have already recommended this restaurant several times.
Great it was for our 9th year wedding anniversary and it was awesome!
We were treated as honored guests/friends. The chef went way out of his way to give us an excellent experience despite my dietary issues. If you find yourself in Montreal, don’t leave without experiencing the delicious food and welcoming atmosphere of this gem.
Amazing experience. Love this restaurant!
Next visit to Montreal ( we are from NY) .. we will most certainly be dining at Candide!
Fantastique restaurant offrant une cuisine soignée et originale du terroir pour un prix plus qu’adéquat. Tout le personnel est attentif, respectueux, mais sans prétention. La sommelière est calée dans son domaine et hyper passionnée, son accord des vins était un sans faute.
À réessayer sans aucun doute!
Excellent service and experience. We will definitely be back. A new favourite.
Candide was a great restaurant with great food. I'm no fan of lentils, but when a restaurant's kitchen is able to cook lentils in such a way where they're super tasty - I'm sold. I personally found it a little expensive for what you get, but it was still a good experience overall.
Fantastic, no-nonsense place with full focus on delicious food, great surprising wines and excellent service!
Amazing, creative food. Great service. Will
I found Candide on line so, it’s always a risk that the restaurant may not be as good as it appears to be. Candide was amazing! From the first glimpse, to the warm welcome, the beautifully prepared food, excellent wine, and superb service, to the spoonful of honey as a conclusion, we all enjoyed a delightful evening!
Amazing dinner. Staff was so knowledgeable, an unforgettable experience. Go there!
Cuisine extraordinaire. Beaucoup de légumes apprêtés de façon créative et délicieuse. Service souriant. Emilie a choisi des vins incroyables qui se marient parfaitement avec les plats. Je recommande fortement.
Ce Fut tout simplement EXCELLENT!!!!!
Le gout de la campagne en ville!
Compliments to the chef! The food is excellent, very inventive. Great wine pairing (and great wine list).
Every detail of the meal was thought out, from the order of the appetizers, to the best bread to accompany the meal. The space was charming and we enjoyed every bite!
Absolutely perfect birthday evening on pretty, quiet terrace. Chef Winter and his team personnally made the evening extra special as always. My favorite restaurant in montreal!❤
This is truly a must visit restaurant in Montreal. Each of the four courses was excellent, and perfectly paired with an interesting wine by the incredibly friendly sommelier. The entire staff was fantastic. We are very glad we were able to dine at Candide.
We were charmed on arrival by the hidden location and expansive covered terrasse
Service was extremely knowledgeable and attentive
Sommelier was particularly outstanding, as were her choices ( we opted for wine pairing, and highly recommend it )
The chef obviously puts alot of care and research into imagining an original menu based on local organic seasonal ingredients
We didnt love all we tasted, but adored the overall experience and will definitely return to try different menus
Recommended for food adventurers
Delicious, inventive food (it’s a fixed menu, based on the ingredients of the season, with 2 appetizers and a choice between two entrees and two desserts, but accommodations are made upon request), perfect wine pairings, a cozy, elegant setting (the building is former rectory and Sunday school of St. Joseph’s Church, built in 1861 and tucked away on a quiet, verdant lane in Little Burgundy), and a warm, friendly, impeccable service. One of my best meals in Montreal.
Wonderful food in a wonderful atmosphere. We dined outside and had a fantastic meal as everyone took the time to explain all the courses and pairings. A memorable evening for my family, thank you!
Excellent experience. Great food and great service. Nothing tastes like you’d expect it to - it was all very artfully done. The only downside is the outside seating on the deck that overlooks the driveway and dumpster. (I asked them to move me and they did.). Spectacular.
Restaurant discret par son emplacement, mais qui en vaut le détour. Une rigueur et un travail de recherche en cuisine pour ne servir que des produits locaux. Service ultra chaleureux et professionnel.
Amazing food, service and value! The best dining experience of our Montreal visit! Can’t recommend highly enough
Un endroit très chaleureux, nourriture de grande qualité joliment présentée, parfait accord mets et vin. De belles découvertes! Merci à l'équipe et à la prochaine!
Great atmosphere, amazing service, the food was incredible. They have an excellent wine list I definetly suggest the wine pairing with dinner.
Very inventive cuisine, which was sometimes a great success and sometimes missed the mark, but even then was interesting. The ambience was lively. The wait staff were terrific, and the sommelier superb - order the wine courses which accompany the table d'hote menu if only to learn from her. Given the location and the fact that there is intrinsic economy in a prix fixe menu, if anything would give me second thoughts about returning, it would be the cost.
Delicious food. Interesting and innovative dishes. Superb service. Excellent wine menu and pairings. Covered patio offers outdoor seating. Exquisite dining.
Restaurant chaleureux, cuisine fine de saison et service parfait. Le chef vient lui meme vous expliquer et vous servir ses plats avec sa jeune équipe dynamique. Un mélange subtile de haute gastronomie et de décontraction. A ne pas manquer et surtout à refaire!
Great wine, even better food, a nice way to experience Montreal's dishes.
Great local fare with incredibly fresh ingredients. We came all the way from Australia wanting to try something local and different, and we were very impressed. Local vegetables were the main features in most dishes and the chef really knows how to play to their strengths. Seafood were also featured in some dishes and they were really fresh and tasty.
The venue is quaint and we prefer the indoor section as it felt more intimate with a direct view of the open kitchen; the chef also came to our table to introduce every dish which made it that extra bit more special.
Creative food that was an interesting mix of flavours, but none of us felt any of the dishes were particularly tasty/delicious.
Sommelier was the highlight, very energetic, passionate, and made great pairings.
