Fall is a great time to be in Montreal. Whether you’re from the 514 or just visiting, the season brings coloured leaves, cooler temperatures and the hotly anticipated return on MTLàTABLE, one of our city’s largest food festivals.
From November 3rd to the 13th, over 150 restaurants across the city will offer fixed-price menus for $21, $31 and $41 during Montreal’s restaurant week. Because no mean is complete without wine, this year’s festival is presented by Vins du Langueduc and will promote wine pairings to complement certain meals. The public will also have a chance to participate in free tastings and meet with the innovative winegrowers and sommeliers from Vins du Langueduc.
MTLàTABLE isn’t just about sitting down for a great meal. Food lovers will have a chance to learn about our city’s past and its culinary roots with guided tours during the festival. Furthermore, those with an appetite for culture can take advantage of discounted rates at various attractions around Montreal. Pair your meal up with a movie night or take in a tour of one of our museums before or after your meal.
The SAQ will also present various vinicultural events during MTLàTABLE. Samples of over 1200 products from Argentina and Chile will be offered at La Grand Dégustation. Wine lovers can also take in both La Fête des Vins du Québéc (featuring the best from local producers) and the Salon des vins de l’importation privée which will showcase a selection of rare wines.
With only 11 days to take it all in, fans of MTLàTABLE will have their work cut out for them choosing everything they want to do.

You can check out the list of all participating restaurants which include ÊAT, Suite 701, Alexandre et fils, Chez l’Épicier, Jerry Ferrer, Ikanos and many, many more.
