Haitian Cuisine Hits The Village

1844 Rue Amherst, Montréal, QC H2L

If  you have never tried Haitian cuisine, I recommend that 1) You do! And 2) You do it at Agrikol- a fairly new Montreal restaurant and bar serving up popular Haitian dishes in a seriously hip space.

From the outside, Agrikol looks like no more than an adorable home in the middle of the Village, but step inside and enter a Caribbean paradise. Palm tree-covered walls, and tropical beats transport you straight to the tropics. A two-story high bar, mismatched wallpaper, and art give Agrikol a completely unique vibe.



The cocktail list is (no surprise here…) TROPICAL with lots of pineapple, coconut, and rum (YUM). The drink we ordered is large and meant for two people. It basically tasted like a pina colada and is highly recommended.


Plates are ”tapas” style, so we ordered a few to share! We tried the refreshing Conch Ceviche served with crispy plantain chips, the Accras (vegetarian beignets) served with a tangy dipping sauce, and Griot (seasoned pork with vegetables). For our main we ordered the chicken, which arrived fall-off-the-bone served on a bed of rice and beans.
My grandmother who is of Iraqi decent makes a lot of chicken and rice dishes and the rich flavour and tender meat of Agrikol’s chicken dish reminded me a lot of her Middle Eastern version. Simply delicious!

Even the bathroom is tropical!
I am a big fan of firsts, and I loved my first experience trying Haitian food and my first time at Agrikol! Both the food and atmosphere left me wanting to come back for more. They don’t take reservations, so just stop by (and keep your fingers crossed for an open table)!
