8. Holder 407 rue McGill, Montreal, H2Y 2G3

This Old Port resto is a brasserie known for its meat and fish dishes, aside from its drinks. But, do not count its goat cheese dish short. On top of a flaky, thin crust is a warm piece of goat cheese with a basil emulsion. Combine the cheese with the side of olive spread for a salty kick.

9. Philinos 4806 Avenue du Parc, Montreal, H2V 4E6

“Philinos” for those who aren't well versed in Greek means “friends of wine,” so it only makes sense that this Greek restaurant would have a pretty extensive wine list, with many Greek varieties featured. While the red and white stuff abound at Philinos, one can't forget the food, with the grilled octopus and saganaki being customer favourites.
