15 Montreal "Best Kept Secret" Terrasses

Montreal sure is known for being home to some amazing terrasses whether on a boat or on a rooftop. However, Montreal actually has multiple terrasses that are hidden secrets from the general public.

So, if you and your BFFs are feeling adventurous and want to try something new since you're tired of going to the same places, then I recommend exploring some of Montreal's best kept secret terrasses. The list below contains some gorgeous restaurants that serve a variety of food and are located in gardens and hidden locations all around the city!

If you love Vietnamese food, then you definitely need to check out this place! You and your BFFs can enjoy some delicious food and a fabulous time that'll make any day better.

3.Perché Bar Terrasse

At Perché Bar Terrasse, trust me, the drinks are just as good as the views! You can enjoy their tapas/entrées menu that features tacos and small snacks while sipping on some cocktails as you enjoy the view from the 8th floor.
