Restaurant Mélisse

Old Montréal

Nestled between Old Montréal and Griffintown lies a little piece of foodie heaven called Restaurant Mélisse, offering fine summery cuisine and warm hospitality in Montréal’s Cité du Multimédia district. Here, patrons are greeted like old friends, invited to stop and sit a spell over a coffee, a cocktail or a scrumptious meal.

For lunch, brunch, breakfast or supper, Restaurant Mélisse serves up healthy, nourishing gourmet food that is long on flavour and short on price. For drinks, the thoughtful wine list emphasizes organic vintages while cocktails stay on point.

Chef Bertrand Giguère lends his refreshingly light style to a contemporary bistro cuisine showcasing Québec artisanal products. A concise menu of primarily meat-centric dishes changes with the seasons, offering delights such as grilled wild shrimp layered with oven-roasted tomatoes, fall-off-the-bone pork ribs, mixed salads, tartines and more. If you don’t have time to dine in, Restaurant Mélisse offers take-out as well.

High ceilings, hanging plants, chic chandeliers and a soothing colour scheme set the scene for a simple, yet rewarding culinary experience. Complete with terrasse, Restaurant Mélisse delivers fine dining with a distinctive L.A. vibe.
