All you can eat buffets in Montréal
Amidst the thousands of restaurants in the city that offer the very best of Québecois terroir cuisine lead by kitchen teams and international award winning chefs, whether we all admit to it or not, everyone holds a soft spot in their heart for a banging all you can eat buffet.
If a more western style all you can eat buffet is more your style, be sure to visit Pavillon 67 located in the iconic Casino de Montréal, and headed by Jean-Pierre Curtat. Enjoy the buffet formula of “abundance” and “gourmet” with breathtaking views of the St. Lawrence seaway and skyline of the city. The concept of Pavillon 67 is that most of the buffet food is prepared in front of the guest – a rotisserie station sees whole roasted turkeys and chicken carved to order, as well as succulent whole-roasts sliced to perfection. Pavillion 67 also offers a brunch buffet on weekends. – 1 Du Casino Avenue
