Deep in the heart of Old Montreal lies a romantically elegant restaurant known as Chez Queux. As though stepping back in time, perhaps to 1862 when it was built. Velvet curtains, crimson carpeting, high wooden beamed ceilings and archways, stone walls and old candle lit chandeliers, we sit in high back velvet chairs warmed by an open fireplace listening to gentle live piano music. The tables are adorned with fresh orchids, crystal and sterling candlesticks, glassware and polished silver.
The well-informed staff is very helpful and make it a wonderful dining experience. There are several rooms available for intimate or large gatherings. Reservations are recommended.
