During the "MTL @ Table" food week, we decided to try this place that offered a very interesting menu (going left field compared to many other restaurants participating in this yearly event). It is important to note that during this event, the regular menu is not offered... the restaurants limiting their food offerings to 2-3 appetizers, 2-4 main courses and... More

They are currently offering an anniversary special on Tues/Wed nights on their table d'hôte menu, so for $42 each we got an appetizer, main, and dessert (and you bring your own bottle of wine). You can also order à la carte. It was a quiet night at the restaurant, and we had an enjoyable evening: the food was delicious and... More

We like this restaurant so much we ate here twice in our 5 day stay. Food was really good and excellently presented. Price was very reasonable and the fact they you could bring your own booze even better! Service was exceptional and our waitress was very friendly and charming. Would certainly recommend it.

You won't find this restaurant by walking around. You need a recommendation to get there and enjoy tasty dishes prepared fresh for you. The host was fun and friendly, but most importantly, the food was good. That's all you need to know, other that you need to bring your own bottle of wine.

Hey, I love all animals just as much as the next person, but the kangaroo meat was already in the chefs fridge ready to go, so it would actually be worse if it went to waste. Small quaint place. Don't let the neighbourhood fool you, the service, friendliness and food quality could fit right in anywhere on Laurier or Bernard.... More

We just had dinner at Carte Blanche, and it was terrific. Clean, comfortable restaurant with crisp white table linens. Bring your own bottle- but the server went the extra mile to bring us a cold ice container to keep our local craft beer cold. My dinner was amazing- it was one of the specials for the evening: a duck foie... More

We went for Montréal à table and we would definitely come back. Quality/price is worth the experience and would come back anytime either with friends or for a couple night.

Visited Carte Blanche during Montreal à Table. My husband and I were quite impressed with the quality of the food. His kangaroo was perfectly cooked and everything else was well done. The deserts were a bit small and the setting was ok without being fantastic. Overall a good value and and interesting bring your own wine option.

Staying in Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)

Neighbourhood Profile
Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)
Named for the Olympic Stadium complexes built for the 1976 games, the Olympic Park and the surrounding neighbourhood of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa) make up an invigorated area dedicated to "Space for Life." Around the Olympic Village's arenas and stadiums, Rue Sherbrooke welcomes exploration of its sculpture gardens decorated in the works of Jean-Paul Riopelle and its museum culture headed by the historical Château Dufresne. Maisonneuve Park offers interactive experiences at its bio-dome, insectarium, planetarium, and botanical gardens. For a change of scene, the gentrified space along Rue Ontario Est is packed with the city's newest, edgiest cafes, where an imaginative, youthful crowd sips foamy cappuccinos. A visit here is incomplete without stepping into the vast halls of the Maisonneuve Market, with flower stalls, wine depots, and local produce.
