Find your perfect Montreal first date restaurant below...
Aries | March 21 - April 19
This Montreal girl is bold, ambitious, and she won't be slowed down. She's got lots to do and appreciates efficiency.
Think take out, something quick, like a sandwich and a nice Viennoiserie. Try Mamie Clafoutis on Saint-Denis. You can stop and check out some music at Beatnik Records or pick up a book at Michel Fortin's to keep this Aries girl moving.
Taurus | April 20 - May 20
This Montreal girl wants to relish in life's pleasures, relax, and take it all in.
Think something decadent, like real French cuisine paired with a great glass of wine. Try La Société on rue de la Montagne in the heart of downtown. The atmosphere is cozy, welcoming, and won't rush you along.
Gemini | may 21 - june 20
The symbol for Gemini is the twins, which usually manifests in Geminis just wishing they could have two sets of hands, or be in two places at once.
This girl has a lot on her plate... and she likes it like that.
So go with something that will let you get your hands into everything — tapas! Try Zeppelin near Université de Montréal. They've got a great selection of share plates for $5 if you order a drink. Plus, plenty of beer choices offered in three sizes.
Cancer | june 21 - july 22
A Cancer is very intuitive and always in touch with their emotional side. This girl knows what she needs and why.
So why not try some classic comfort food? Women can be won through their stomachs just as easily as men!
Macbar et Fromage on Ontario St. is just south of Parc La Fontaine, so maybe go for a stroll after you try one of their signature mac n' cheese skillets.
Leo | July 23 - August 22
Chances are, if you're talking to a Leo, they've already picked the restaurant.
These girls know what they want and they aren't afraid to show it.
So maybe for the second date you can surprise her with Brigade Pizza. This pizza joint is on Stanley St. right by Peel Station. Your Leo can maintain her place as star of the show, and you can celebrate her genius by creating Brigade's own DIY pizzas.
Virgo | August 23 - September 22
Don't expect to get it perfect the first time with a Virgo girl, but also don't worry too much about it. You will soon understand her system of choosing which restaurant and why depending on this detail or another.
Until then — go for something simple and detail oriented.
Try Montreal sushi spot Mikado on Laurier and let the health nut in her appreciate the simple perfection that is sushi.
Libra | September 23 - October 22
Libra's famous symbol is the scale, representing your girl's ability to find balance in all things. She will always seek out harmony and equilibrium.
Perhaps the balance you provide on your night out is a beautifully decadent meal... without any meat.
Either LOV location would provide a perfect opportunity to bring some harmony into your lives... and whichever location you don't pick, you can go to next time... y'know... to maintain the balance.
Scorpio | October 23 - November 21
A Scorpio is never afraid to test the waters and trying something new. They love a good challenge and will rise to any occasion... like something spicy.
Even Indian spicy.
If you're into it, head to Bombay Mahal Thali on Jean-Talon near metro Acadie and share a couple of their amazing thali choices.
Sagittarius | November 22 - December 21
A Sagittarius girl is always on a quest for something new. She's a globetrotter and an explorer, so you'll want to find something truly unique.
If you've got no fears youself, try Queen Sheba on Parc at Mont-Royal. Ethiopian is an amazing, utensil free, crepe-scooping experience and there are so many different dishes to try.
The curious will love Queen Sheba's.
Capricorn | December 22 - January 19
A Capricorn likes to have a lot on the go and they revel in checking things off their list. They don't want to be distracted from the task at hand though — everything should still be enjoyed and appreciated.
For a date with a Cap, try something quick and convenient but still delectable and dynamic. Head to Burrito Borracho on Crescent and then keep the date moving along. Appreciate all the many flavours that make a burrito amazing... and then go wander through McGill's old buildings.
The best of both worlds.
Aquarius | January 20 - February 18
An Aquarius may have their habits, but they love to be surprised. They will also always rise to the challenge and love to try new things.
Consider something unusual or eclectic — any new, cutting-edge restaurant you've heard people talking about.
Try Kazu on Sainte-Catherine near Guy-Concordia Station. It does Japanese with a twist and is always impressive
Pisces | February 19 — March 20
It can often seem like a Pisces is in a constant state of division. The constellation is two fish swimming away from each other, after all. Your Pisces girl might be torn between going out or staying in. Getting dressed up or staying cozy inside.
Pick something warm and inviting, like an Italian restuaurant with candles and comfy cushions. Try Piatto Pieno in Little Italy on Saint-Zotique by metro Beaubien.
You can bring your own wine, so again you have duality of going out for dinner, but saving money on drinks. Perfection.
