SeaSalt & Ceviche Bar: Seafood themed brunch menu & sunny terrasse (Old Port)

Restaurant: SeaSalt & Ceviche Bar
Event: Le Brunch Squad’s 10th Meet-Up

Restaurant type: brunch, seafood
Prices: $4.50-$23 brunch

Date: Sunday May 19th 2019


Last month, I attended my first ever Le Brunch Squad Meet Up event at SeaSalt & Ceviche Bar! For those who don’t know, Le Brunch Squad hosts monthly brunch events (kind of like I do) with a large emphasis on community, togetherness and having a good time (mine have a much larger emphasis on food and photography).

SeaSalt & Ceviche Bar is a beautifully decorated restaurant, located in the Old Port of Montreal. As per their name, they offer a wide variety of seafood-focused dishes and have just began their seasonal brunch menu! You’ll find wonderful things on it like Crab Cake Benedict, Lobster eggs Benedict, Seafood breakfast cassolette and more.

Crab Cake Benedict (2019)

I opted for the Crab Cake Benedict, served with breakfast potatoes, chef’s salad and fresh berries (I also ordered a side of thick-cut bacon which was pretty good). Overall, the dish was good, but it had its highs and lows. For example, the crab cake was excellent; very moist, flavorful and with nice chunks of crab. Unfortunately, I was served a dish with only one egg (whereas others who also ordered this dish got two eggs) and the breakfast potatoes portion was, as my friend put it, a child’s portion. Others ordered the half lobster eggs Benedict, which we found to be very misleading, as there was only half of the lobster tail and no claw; that, my friends, is 1/4 lobster, not 1/2 a lobster.

Nonetheless, it was a fun event and nice to see how others run their ships. I have my own criteria when it comes to reviewing restaurants, which I also use on my Instagram account (@elisebgravel). It’s very simple, there are only three points: the quality of the food (on 10), the price (from $ to $$$$$) and the following question: would I go back?

So, here is my review of SeaSalt & Ceviche Bar:
Food: 7.5/10 
Price: $$$ 
Would I go back?: I wouldn’t go back for brunch, but considering I won a $50 gift card, I’d like to go back for a 5@7 on their terrasse
