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.
