Darna bistroquet

Little Italy and Villeray

Off the beaten tourist-trodden path is where you’ll find Darna Bistroquet, a darling neighbourhood bistro and wine bar in Montreal’s inviting La Petite Patrie borough.

Darna is Moroccan for “our house” and that is the feeling you get in this warm, chic space or out onto its pretty patio.

Serving up classic French bistro cuisine, it’s all about delicious, farm-to-table cuisine from Chef Billy Galindo’s kitchen. Renowned for his intuitive, pure and approachable creations, Chef Galindo has devised a menu of creative dishes and delectable plates to share, ranging from saffron-kissed tagine to citron tabbouleh to Andalusian gazpacho.

Darna’s homemade desserts are simply to die for, with scrumptious apple Tarte Tatin or Quebec strawberry tart with chic-choc Chantilly and pistachios just a glimpse of what awaits.

Courtesy of sommelier André Plante, Darna’s long list of natural, bio and biodynamic wines by the bottle and the glass showcase primarily Mediterranean vintages alongside a host of local Quebec selections.

Cocktails are classic, with a Darna twist, and beer features selections from the local Ma brasserie cooperative.

All this, plus it’s service with a smile at Darna, where the warm and courteous staff go the extra mile to ensure a delightful dining experience.
