Fodor’s Expert Review
Set on the ground floor of the Hôtel des Coutellier, in the Old Port area, Légende is set in a large wood and stone room with plush banquettes and an elegant bar. There are a lot of sharing plates—the smartly prepared fish and seafood board (including things like salmon rillettes and welk salad) is particularly delightful. The menu is highly seasonal, and ingredients are exclusively from Québec, with local meats garnished with foraged wild mushrooms and fish with seaside herbs from the Gulf of St Lawrence. Desserts showcase bright and intense flavors of local fruit, among other things. More than 30 wines are offered by the glass, with a strong emphasis on food pairings.
