This Restaurant Under 4 Hours From Montreal Feels Like You're Next To The Mediterranean

Vacation season is approaching for many Quebecers and, as we already know, this year, it's likely to only be celebrated within our beautiful country. If you're feeling a little bit out of place this year, especially because you're wishing you were somewhere on the other side of the world, a road trip to Lake Ontario is a must. And not just because of the beautiful beach at Sandbanks Provincial Park, but because you can go enjoy the Boathouse Seafood Restaurant's splendid terrasse while you're visiting.

Located only three and a half hours from Montreal, the restaurant is perfect for an afternoon or evening party with friends and family. 

And, it's the place to come and immortalize your most beautiful summer memories in a decor reminiscent of trendy destination ports.

The Boathouse Seafood Restaurant Patio and Lounge is located at Victoria Harbour in downtown Belleville.

Instead, you may get the feeling that you're somewhere in Europe next to the Mediterranean Sea.  

The atmosphere is rather relaxed and there's live music every Saturday night.

From the inevitable fish and chips to crab, lobster and grilled meats, the generous menu will make your mouth water.

Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options are also available.

Main course prices range from $15 to $50, except for the seafood platter for two, which is $125.

There's something for every taste and every budget.

So, if you're ever in the area in the winter, don't miss out! The restaurant is open all year round; you can even skate during the cold season right in front of the terrasse.
