Montreal Mon Lapin Voted Top Restaurant


Montreal’s Mon Lapin was named the top restaurant in the annual Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants rankings. The restaurant jumped from 6th to 1st place, ahead of Toronto’s Alo and Published On Main, from Vancouver, which ranked first last year. This is the third time that a Quebec restaurant has taken the top spot.

“There simply isn’t anywhere else in the world one would wish to have a restaurant; Montreal is magical! It’s thanks to the discerning and curious clientele that the culinary scene here is so rich. The Montreal joie de vivre is unique and contagious! We couldn’t be prouder of our city!” said Vanya Filipovic, co-owner of Mon Lapin, who also won the Best Sommelier Team award alongside her colleague and co-owner, sommelier Alex Landry.

Since the creation of this list 10 years ago, Montreal has kept an incomparable reputation for gastronomy, celebrating this year its fourth recognition as number 1 in Canada. This performance testifies to the exceptional quality of the local gastronomic scene and confirms the undisputed reputation of Montréal as the gastronomic capital of the country.

The restaurants Beba, Monarque, Montréal Plaza and Toqué! are also honoured in the top 20. Opened recently, Sabayon and Casavant also managed to earn a place among the list. Internationally renowned Montreal chef Paul Toussaint, owner of Kamuy restaurant, wins the American Express Award for Community Leadership.

“What pride to see Montréal shine so much in the field of gastronomy! This recognition reinforces our commitment to promoting our vibrant and diverse tables,” said Yves Lalumière, president and CEO of Tourisme Montréal.
