7 Best Montreal Restaurants You Have To Bring A Date To If They Love Tacos

Friends, dates are tough sometimes. You've got to figure out what to wear, where to go, what to talk about, how to connect to the person sitting in front of you... it's complicated, no doubt. But do you know what's simple? What's pure and true happiness? Tacos.

Tacos are basically little envelopes of pure bliss, so to throw a taco in to a date only makes sense. And, sure, there are tons of beyond amazing spots in Montreal to grab an awesome taco, but a handful of them offer both seriously mind-blowing food, and incredibly date-worthy ambiances. Don't know what I'm talking about? Well, friends, prepare to find your next fave date spot.

Real talk, the tacos at this Saint-Henri spot are incredibly tasty, and come with the super welcome addition of french fries, piled high on top of fresh and flavourful toppings. But much more than their awesome tacos, this spot has one seriously casual and trendy vibe, making it the perfect spot to bring a date.

Honestly, is there any better way to spend a date than chilling with someone cool in an incredibly adorable spot, noshing on the world's best dish? I didn't think so, friends. I didn't think so.

We already told you about how awesome Don Taco is, namely for their incredibly tasty, authentic, and fairly priced food. But this spot goes way beyond serving flavourful tacos and burritos, friends.

Don Taco's location, right near Concordia University and downtown Montreal, makes it a prime spot to bring your sweetheart. You guys can nosh on some tasty AF tacos, stroll through beautiful downtown Montreal, and maybe even stop off someplace close for dessert.

Located in NDG, Taco Bar specializes in one thing: tacos. Although their menu features other authentic Mexican fare, the true star of the show here is their taco, featuring fresh and chewy tortillas, flavourful and vibrant tacos, and a seriously solid selection.

Of course, this spot also happens to be incredibly adorable, and offer a casual, relaxing atmosphere, making it a prime location for any and all of your taco needs. (Including taco escapades with that special someone, of course).

If you're taking a date to Montreal's Chinatown, the chances are very good that you're going there to sample some of the awesome Asian restaurants. But if you're the type of couple who love tacos, then I've got some good news for you. Some of the best tacos in the city are situated in Chinatown, at Montreal's La Capital.

The beauty of this spot lies mostly in their beyond delicious taco offerings, but also in the fact that you'll still get a bite of your favourite dish, and the chance to stroll through one of the most vibrant areas of Montreal with your sweetheart.

From fantastic tacos to amazing churros, every single bite is like a taste adventure. So, friends, grab bae, and prepare for one of the tastiest dates you'll ever experience.

Alright, real talk, this is one seriously cute spot. The decor inside is just a little kitsch, in the best possible way, and the food they serve up is not only tasty, but beautiful as well.

Bonus points for its location, right near the Plateau and in the heart of Montreal's Mile-End, making for some seriously awesome options for a post-meal romantic stroll, as well.
