H4C Place Saint-Henri
When I saw that the H4C was among the selection of restaurants for this ridiculous amount, it was imperative that I add it to this list.

$73 Table d'hôte
You may find that $73 per person begins to be a little less accessible for a "table d'hôte". However, if you look at the only two establishments that are in this category, I can confirm that it is rather a bargain. Having the chance to eat at one of these institutions for less than 100$ is not possible every day.
Europea is a Montreal institution where you will find a quite spectacular, creative and modern cuisine. You will experience an extraordinary dining experience by choosing to try the Europea restaurant.
It's hard to resist a menu at this price, especially if it was concocted by the renowned Chef Normand Laprise. Le Toqué! offers an innovative modern cuisine that you will remember.
