Chalet chic comfort food in Old Montreal

CHALET CHIC COMFORT FOOD IN OLD MONTREAL

COVID-19

Our mission is to accommodate you safely. 

Tables are spaced, hygiene is assured, and staff are trained in the art of post-COVID hospitality. 

Should you have any questions, please feel free to call us. 

 

 We ask that all guests forego the following time-honoured traditions until further notice: 

Bises. Clustering around the bar. Singing. 

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. 

 

LOLLIPOPS.

 Why not?
