The story of Bonaparte

Bonaparte Restaurant is housed an historic five-story building in Old Montreal, constructed in 1886 by architect Victor Roy.

In the beginning

Its first owner was the honorable judge Joseph-Amable Berthelot.
To this day, “Berthelot 1886” still shows on the building’s frontispiece. Little else is known about the building’s service over the almost 100 years between then and the arrival of Restaurant Bonaparte.

Times change

We do know that through the decades, as Old Montreal’s popularity grew in terms of tourism and business alike, the area yearned for a restaurant of a particular calibre; one that eschewed the trends of chain-restaurant uniformity and impersonality.


It is this level of personalized service, distinct style and exquisite gastronomy that first drew patrons to Bonaparte, and which they continue to expect and appreciate today. After 35 years, we are still proud to oblige.


As is befitting of our character, Restaurant Bonaparte is just steps away from Pointe à Callière, the birthplace of Montreal.  

We are conveniently located one block from the International District and two blocks from the Montreal Convention Centre.  

Place d’armes and Square Victoria metro (subway) stations are both within comfortable walking distance. Montréal Central Station is 2 km away.

Join us at the heart of history, where yesterday and today rub shoulders with tomorrow. For business or pleasure, no setting could be more scintillating or more memorable.
