- Big 7 Travel ranked Montreal restaurant Agrikol one of the most Instagrammable eateries in the whole world.
- Only a handful of Canadian restaurants made the ranking, none of them in the top ten.
There are so many restaurant options in Montreal, some of them are known for their amazing food, while other places gain a reputation for their photogenic decor and dishes. One local spot seems to have outshined the competition in this department. Our very own Agrikol made Big 7 Travel's list of the most Instagrammable restaurants in the world.
We live in a society that puts a lot of emphasis on aesthetic experiences. Now, more than ever, restaurants are stepping up their design game to woo Instagram-hungry customers.
Agrikol, located on rue Atateken, is a tropical-inspired eatery that serves up some of the best Haitian dishes in the city. The flavour-filled rum cocktails have also left their mark on clients.
But it's the colourful walls, expansive patio, and decorations that earned the restaurant a spot on the Big 7 Travel list.
From the tropical ornaments and leaf detailed walls to the selfie-worthy bathrooms and adorable staircase, this eatery is made to feel like a Caribbean vacation.
And, during the months of summer, there is a popular, tree-shaded terrasse that is truly breathtaking.
Agrikol was the 37th entry on the Big 7 Travel list and the only Montreal restaurant to make the cut.
Other ranking Canadian establishments include El Catrin (#32) and Oretta (#14) in Toronto and National on 10th in Calgary (#47).
The number one spot was given to a colourful establishment in Houston Texas called Present Company.
"Trendy is trendy," writes Elizabeth Thorn for Big 7, "and it doesn’t look like it’s slowing down any time soon."
"Ranging from elegant to eccentric, the most Instagrammable restaurants in the world all have one thing in common: you’ll find loads of snaps of them on the social media platform."
Agrikol's international recognition will hopefully draw attention to the dozens of other photo-worthy Montreal restaurants.
