I remember the days where we would google “Best rooftop in Montreal”. And I remember how hard it was to find one and how unpopular this concept was. Now, we can easily find one since terraces in Montreal are starting to become a thing. Find out about my experience at the amazing Terrasse Place d’Armes located in the Old Port of Montreal.
Hotel Place d’Armes, an amazing hotel with delicious restaurants
Hotel Place d’Armes is a famous century-old building on Place d’Armes square. The beautiful facade has been a background for many bloggers (including me). The hotel also owns Brasserie 701, a great spot for a Sunday brunch between friends. Their newest concept, Terrasse Place d’Armes, is a unique urban oasis overlooking the city.
Place d’Armes is relatively small compare to a big hotel chain, but this is the main reason why I love it so much. The place feels quite intimate but still allows you to be in the heart of literally everything. Adding a beautiful rooftop with a great menu was brilliant and the perfect touch for this hotel.
One of the best views of Place d’Armes square and the city
On top of that amazing view and beautiful sunset, we actually got to enjoy our meal. We started with a beautiful and delicious mocktail and a bit of white wine. A few minutes later, our plates started to arrive. Beautiful fresh oysters with some flowers and a quinoa salad full of ingredients.
I was impressed with the presentation because rooftop restaurants are not always the best in terms of quality. It was not just pretty to look at but actually very tasty. As we started eating, golden hour finally came and looked absolutely stunning. The terrace is quite big and the view is perfection. If you want to enjoy a beautiful sunset while enjoying a cocktail, this is definitely the place.
Terrasse Place d’Armes menu
As a mentioned earlier, we started with fresh oysters and a quinoa salad. Oysters are just an amazing starter to share on a summer evening. My second favourite thing to order is tartare. These kind of options are exactly what I’m looking for when the weather is hot. I ordered a succulent salmon tartare with dill and 3 shrimp tacos. You can never go wrong with these choices.
We ended our meal on a great note with a delicious crème brulée and something else that I can’t even remember. Bottom line, it was AMAZING! Oh, and we obviously added more wine.
