One of my favorite places to visit is Mont-Tremblant, Quebec. About an hour and a half north of Montreal, this ski resort and village is a popular winter destination.
But, don’t let that deter you from visiting any time of year. In fact, Mont-Tremblant has great things to offer in winter, spring, summer, and fall (yes, the fall leaves are that pretty!).
The summer is my favorite time to visit. The mountain and lakes are just beautiful, with tons outdoor activities and festivals. Plus, there are so many occasions to find great things to eat in Mont-Tremblant!
There is a wide variety Mont-Tremblant restaurants, from “fancy” and upscale to unique local favorites. There are even some cheap eats that just have to be tried!
On a side note, you’ll notice that since Mont-Tremblant is in Quebec, restaurant names are often in French. However, menus are typically available in English, and staff usually speak English as well. People are friendly, and you can anticipate a relaxed “Joie de Vivre” (love of life).

127 Chemin de Kandahar // +1 819-681-4555
Maison de la Crepe is one of the most popular restaurants in Mont Tremblant. It’s located in a charming old village house turned restaurant within a pedestrian village at the base of the mountain. Give yourself plenty of time when you go, as their popularity means there can be a wait.
The restaurant’s specialties include generous portions of both sweet and savory crepes. This is not your average creperie; the dishes are unique and so full of flavor that we make this place an absolute must-go every time we are in Mont-Tremblant!
Some popular savory favorites are the Matante Claudette (translated Aunt Claudette), the smoked salmon crepe, the brunch crepe and la fiesta crepe.
Sweet crepes come with different types of fruit, peanut butter and nutella. My personal favorite is the Florentine Crepe with a side of extra bechamel sauce.
If you’re up for it, try a dessert crepe. Fair warning, the desert portions are huge and sweet! My husband and I often share a savory crepe and a dessert crepe (our favorite is the banana split crepe). This makes for the most amazing lunch or brunch.
117 Chemin de Kandahar // +1 819-681-4546
This casual restaurant and microbrewery within the pedestrian village at the base of Mont-Tremblant is known for its fun vibe and rustic and relaxed atmosphere. The menu is simple, but the food is very good. I don’t drink beer, but my husband loves pairing something from their list of craft beer to go with his meal. I opt for a glass of house wine.
My husband’s go-to menu order is the European sausage meal. With a choice of 2 sausages, you also get a little selection of gourmet mustard, which is a nice touch. The La Diable burger also look incredible as well.
I enjoy the chicken brochette meal or Asian salad. You can also order some pretty good burgers. The food is tasty, and portions are generous.
855 Rue de Saint Jovite // +1 819-425-7580
Restaurant Antipasto is located in the Mont-Tremblant region, but it’s about 10 minutes from the resort village in the downtown St. Jovite area. However, this local restaurant is worth the short trip, especially if you want to check out the nearby local shops.
This casual restaurant is housed in an old, refurbished train station, making it a unique stop for wood stove pizza and some of the best lasagna you can find.
It’s specialties are pizza, pasta dishes and a really good Caesar salad! Pricing is very reasonable for a tourist area.
This cozy and comfortable Italian restaurant located close to the old Tremblant village, about 2 miles off the resort, is a great place for a good meal. The dishes are delicious and reasonably priced. Some popular options include homemade pasta (we love the rosee sauce), pizza, calamari, and good veal and steak dishes. You may want to save room for their desserts, which are comfort food style and quite good.
Fine Dining – Upscale Restaurants
Mont-Tremblant is home to some fancy and often rustic restaurants. This French Canadian village hosts several amazing chef/restaurateurs with fine dining establishments. Many of these Mont-Tremblant restaurants strive to maintain a small, local flavor.
1874 Chemin du Village // +1 819-425-2092
Housed in the Auberge La Porte Rouge in the old Tremblant village (about 5-10 minutes from the Tremblant resort), Restaurant St. Louis has been a favorite for guests and visitors for many years. With a gorgeous view overlooking Lac Mercier, they’re open for breakfast and lunch. For dinners, the restaurant organizes events with a 25 person minimum.
Run by a father and son team, this family-owned restaurant aims to please with delicious meals and French Canadian warmth. Breakfast favorites include the “big breakfast”, eggs Benedict and crepes. You also must try their home fries. Delish!
They also have a nice casual lunch menu with very friendly service. However, dinner is when this restaurant shines. The chef’s menu is often available with a few choices table d’hote style. You can expect delicious French-inspired dishes of beef, lamb, duck, fish, pastas and chicken to be on the menu each night. Moderately priced, a meal here is a good value for the quality of this restaurant.
116 Chemin de Kandahar // +1 819-681-4573
While not an inexpensive restaurant, with prices starting at about 50$ CAN a person (approx $35 USD), Le Savoie’s delicious food and unique dining experience are well worth the price. Located at the base of the pedestrian village in Mont-Tremblant, this charming French and Swiss restaurant offers your choice of fondues, charcuteries and a local specialty called Raclette. If you have room, end your meal with some chocolate fondue.
Something to note, this restaurant has 2 evening seatings, so do call for reservations.
Mont Tremblant Cheap Eats
As a tourist area, there is no shortage of overpriced restaurants in Mont-Tremblant. That’s why I love coming across good food that’s just less expensive!
123 Chemin de Kandahar // +1 819-681-4616
Located at the base of Mont-Tremblant, this almost fast-food pizza joint (it’s very casual) serves great pizza and a family-style salad. If you’re staying in Mont-Tremblant, consider picking up some dinner at Yaoooo and bringing it back to your hotel.
Or, if weather permits eat at one of their outdoor tables. Even better, grab a bottle of wine from the wine store a few doors down. You’ll have a great inexpensive and casual meal.
795 Rue de Saint Jovite // +1 819-430-7151
I can never resist a good “chip stand”, but this local Mom and Pop joint serving steamed hot dogs, burgers and fries is the best!
It’s not fancy, and it’s not pretty (although it is cute). Yet, it has amazing homemade fries and the very best Quebecois “poutine”, all priced fairly. For those that don’t know, classic poutine is french fries, gravy and curd cheese. You can also get variations with smoked meat and ground beef. Personally, I stick with the classic, as its really good! While you’re there, play some mini-golf.
151 Chemin du Curé Deslauriers // +1 819-681-4747
This very casual restaurant specializes in poutine of all sorts. Poutine is THE fast food of Quebec, typically made with homemade style french fries and squeaky curd cheese (it’s 100% better than it sounds).
Located at the base of Mont-Tremblant’s pedestrian village (right next to the free Gondola), you can stop in and grab a poutine to go with all the fixings: piled high with Quebec smoked meat and dill pickles or even covered with cheeseburger and bacon!
While I prefer the classic gravy and curd cheese, this place is certainly popular. It makes for a good artery clogging meal or snack.
Queues de Castor (translated BeaverTails)
116 Chemin de Kandahar // +1 819-717-1933
If you’re hungry for a dessert or snack, one place to try while in Mont Tremblant is BeaverTails (Queues de Castor in French), a Canadian chain that still feels small and local. They don’t serve beaver tails at all (thank goodness), but rather a flat sweet pastry shaped like a beaver tail that tastes more like a gourmet donut. These come with a variety of toppings, including Nutella, Reeses pieces, cinnamon and sugar, maple and more. This is a nice cheap treat to have as a snack or dessert.
Mont-Tremblant is a fabulous place to visit and enjoy the beautiful scenery: winter, spring, summer or fall. Combine the Quebec French village culture with the vibrant Mont-Tremblant resort, and you’ve got an eclectic mix of great restaurants to try!
