LOOK FOR THE MOOSE...
Restaurant L’Orignal is tucked a few steps below street level in a historic building on a sleepy side street in Old Montreal. We’ve been serving elegant comfort food and inventive dishes inspired by Quebec’s vast terroir since 2008. Our menu changes often in order to elevate seasonal ingredients. We choose our suppliers in consideration of the quality of their products as well as the sustainability of their practices.
But a restaurant is more than outstanding food, wine and cocktails. When you visit us, you can also expect…
A WARM WELCOME.
Whether you stumble down our steps by accident or have been coming in weekly since day one, we will make you feel at home.
A COZY AMBIANCE.
Some have described our whimsical décor as “chalet chic”, a characterization we were reluctant to embrace until we realized it was pretty accurate.
A SOUNDTRACK THAT WON’T IRRITATE YOU.
Those who care about this type of thing know what we’re talking about. We think good food should be paired with good music.
