Ensconced in the historied heart of Old Montreal, Tzatzi-qui is not merely a restaurant—it’s an escapade. The moment you meander onto its “Mykanos Villa white” wooden terrace, you’re instantaneously spirited away to a halcyon, beachfront hideaway. The chill music pervades the surroundings, beckoning you to decelerate, decompress, and delight in the panoply of unique tastes that Tzatzi-qui extols…
A great chat with the Chef revealled that Tzatzi-qui takes particular pride in its decadently rich dips, notable for their rugged, hearty texture.
Each mouthful promises a gastronomic rhapsody that titillates the palate. Hefty nuggets of garlic meld with crumbles of robust feta and herbs, orchestrating a cacophony of textures that border on hedonistic. Every dip of the herby olive oil ladden pita triangles feels a little bit naughtily gourmande when combining with the hearty dips.
The fries at Tzatzi-qui merit a special mention!
Procured from a specially-curated supplier, these fries, cut extra thick, should receive a culinary award for extreme crispiness with zero batter! With exteriors that boast the perfect crunch and fluffy interiors, I will go as far to say that they are Old Montreal’s most perfect steak-cut fries…

With its affordability, it establishes itself as an idyllic destination for familial feasts or convivial gatherings.
