Terrasse Nelligan MontrealPosted By Alex Chinien Oct 17 2011 · 0 comments · Dining Out
Terrase Nelligan is a restaurant and bar sitting atop the Nelligan hotel. The space and ambiance has a very 5 – 7 feel to it attracting mostly a late 20s to 30s affluent crowd. It is Old Montreal after all. Terrasse Nelligan is one of three restaurants in Hotel Nelligan, along with Mechant Boeuf and Verses. The menu is pretty basic and is comprised of mostly finger foods with some mains as well.
We ordered the Verrine of Matane Shrimp and marinated Honshimeji mushrooms, served with spicy mayonnaise and Arugula and sun-dried tomato salad with pine nuts, parmesan cheese and orange dressing to start. The salad was simple and tasty. I’m not a big fan of shrimp but my fellow diners enjoyed the Matane Shrimp dish quite a bit.
For mains we ordered the Nacho Plate with grilled chicken marinated in tequila, homemade salsa, guacamole, sour cream and jalapeños, Grilled Salmon Filet with bean and cherry tomato salad, drizzled in orange dressing and Tender Chicken Filets, breaded with coconut And served with soya-flavoured bbq sauce.
Although I ate it on my own, the nacho plate was huge and I believe was meant to be shared. The coconut breaded chicken filets were good but not extraordinary and the grilled salmon filet didn’t stand out either. The cocktails seemed to be the highlight of the drink menu and there weren’t very many beers on tap. The view on the rooftop itself is really special and is definitely the main reason for coming back. Strictly considering cuisine, there are many better $20 – $30 options in the Old Port than Terrasse Nelligan.
