These Restaurants Were Recently Fined For Failing Health Inspections By The City Of Montreal

The city of Montreal regularly publishes restaurant health or safety code violations on its website. The "List of Offenders" includes information about specific contraventions as well as any resulting fines.

Below, we've compiled all of the restaurant violations for which the city delivered judgments in the month of April, the most recent month with available data. All information comes directly from the municipal website.

Note, however, that health infractions vary greatly in their severity. Violations on this list involve everything from the presence of contaminants to inadequately covered hair or beards.

You can view the list on the city of Montreal website here.
