Restaurant L'Orignal opened in the winter of 2008 to a warm welcome from locals and tourists alike.  The room is decked out in chalet decor, and is a little getaway to the the middle of Old Montreal.  The kitchen turns out local farm dishes with a modern look. With fun play lists and our variety of cocktails, L'Orignal is a little bit more than just your local restaurant.
