Indeed, this is a city where 2/3 residents are bilingual,1 creating a buzzing, multi-cultural hub with a certain je ne sais quoi, a hub that is drawing in interesting, educated people from around Quebec, Canada and, indeed, the world.

Gourmet Montreal

If you want the laid-back ambience of a coffee date, but prefer the slower pace of a lunch date, there is a Montreal dating idea that combines them both – brunch! Try Sparrow in Mile End: the coffee is outstanding, as are the Blood Orange Mimosas and unbeatable Breakfast Banh-Mi.

Montreal singles who prefer to do their dating over dinner can’t go wrong with a resto like Pastaga, which offers heavenly food in the heart of Little Italy. Not only does it have one of the city’s most inviting dinner menus, the dessert menu here is simply exquisite. Share a few small plates with your date, leave room for dessert (lots of dessert) and let the magic happen!

Montreal Botanical Gardens
Outdoor Montreal dating

Montrealers are lucky enough to have a true Canadian treasure on their doorstep: the Montreal Botanical Gardens. Full of blooming romance in the spring and summer, richly gold and orange come fall and icily beautiful in the winter, the gardens are a perfect date whatever the season.

Slightly more seasonal, but equally beautiful, is a summertime date spent at one of Montreal’s many terrasses. Whether you opt for the leafy cool of a ground-level terrasse or the elegance of a rooftop, an outdoor date is the last word in laid-back charm. Head for Terrasse Place D’Armes for wonderful cocktails, finely crafted food and a stunning view of Notre Dame.

Another part of Montreal dating is making the most of the festivals that this city is famous for! Stand-up lovers should make the most of the Just for Laughs festival, foodies will love a date at the Omnivore Food Festival in August and music fans have endless options from jazz to reggae.

There's also another event that Montreal is famous for: hockey! The Canadiens have long been a treasured part of the city and a winter date at a Habs game is sure to be full of energy. Expect excitement, drama and no small amount of Montreal pride. It's the ideal place to take a date when you want to be reminded of the reasons you love calling Montreal home.
