Drinking good wine and eating go together like peanut butter and jelly. One of the best things about Montreal-living is access to countless Bring Your Own Wine Restaurants. Because adding a bottle of wine - or two - can take a restaurant bill from totally reasonable to max out your credit card in a heartbeat. Making these restaurants are a godsend for those who are on a budget but still love to drink and eat.

That said, over the next few page, we will look at some of the key Bring-Your-Own-Wine spots in the center and across the greater Montreal area.  We also find that BYOW is not only reserved for the typical family-style Vietnamese and Italian restaurants.

Over the years BYOW concept has expanded to restaurants offering a more elevated dining experience such as restaurants that bring modern French experience or fusion cuisine. So that everyone, no matter what your food preference, can enjoy a nice bottle of wine to accompany their dinner - without breaking the bank. Because drinking good and eating should always be democratic.
