One of the most awesome places in the whole city for seafood, Notkins' menu consists of what I truly believe to be pure happiness.

Both Liverpool House and its sister restaurant, Joe Beef, do oysters up extremely right. They're fresh, tasty, and oh-so delicious. Liverpool House, though, has a super busy oyster counter, meaning that you're getting the freshest and tastiest oysters around.

Honestly, Le Filet is every seafood lover's dream... not because they stick to traditional seafood dishes, but because they put a unique twist on every meal they serve. Their oysters, for example, are amazing, and are served up two ways: topped with jalapenos and maple, or miso au gratin.


9. Le Garde-Manger

This Chuck Hughes owned Old Montreal spot is seriously on a level all of its own. Famous for their lobster poutine and other seafood dishes, if you're in the mood for oysters in the city, Garde-Manger won't disappoint. In fact, it'll totally exceed all your oyster expectations (oystpectations?)

When it comes to seafood in the city, one spot instantly comes to mind: Lucille's, located in Montreal's NDG. Lucille's is synonymous with seafood that's totally on point in the city, and if you've ever eaten there, you know why. The food is consistently fresh, delicious, and just straight-up awesome; and their oysters are no exception!
