Escondite (Union)


From the Day of the Dead to Cinco de Mayo, every day is a fiesta at Escondite. 

Tucked away near Cathcart Street and Phillips Square, under Montréal’s ever growing skyline, this Mexican restaurant has only gained in popularity since it opened. From the eye-popping and wildly detailed décor to the thirst quenching cocktails and hunger-inducing menu, Escondite is a great choice when you’re craving a truly special night out on in Montréal. 

Whether it’s for an exotic happy hour, a birthday celebration or just a simple gathering for friends, Escondite offers a sizzling menu at afford prices. The extensive menu features a plethora of savoury Mexican cuisine such as citrus infused salads, mushroom and cheese stuffed quesadillas, deep fried chicken tacos and so much more. The dishes pair perfectly with a number of zingy cocktails made from fresh juices, peppers, herbs, rum and Mezcal.

The restaurant’s atmosphere, inspired by bright colours and over-the-top décor of Mexico’s best bars and restaurants, will have you feeling like you’ve been transported south of the border. In summer, a charming small terrace pops up in front of the restaurant allowing open air dining all summer long.
