Pinxto Tapas – Montreal


Welcome to our first review in the form of a photo essay. It’s been a long time since we enjoyed this meal, so we can’t go into too much detail about each dish. However, memories of the delicious tastes have visited our dreams, and we hope to go back to try many more of their tapas dishes. The restaurant itself was a charming bistro, located in a beautiful neighborhood, about a 20 minute walk from the main plaza in downtown Montreal, which was at the time hosting the Montreal Jazz festival. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and most eager to help us select dishes from their tapas menu that would suit our taste. To be honest, we simply put ourselves in their hands and asked for the waiter’s favourite dishes. We had no regrets, quite the opposite, and as the photos show the food is as beautiful as it is delicious. The two dishes that linger most distinctly in our memory: the Bison Rib and the Black Blood Pudding – Wow!
