Good food but not a lot

Has always supplied a very pleasant high end meal. Not a huge choice on their menu. Bring lots of money and maybe have a good size snack before you come. What you get will be tasty and very well presented.

We always make a point of stopping in to the basement bar of this fine eating establishment when we visit Kingston. The service, sitting at the bar, is exactly what we love about this place. Very friendly and attentive bartender (I can't remember her name!) is always a pleasure to deal with

My wife and I first ate at Chez Piggy before we were ‘my wife and i’ (1979) and, while we aren’t the regulars we were in the 80s, we still visit often. The restaurant is hidden inside a city block and accessible by either of two alleyways. The inner courtyard serves as one of three eating areas for the restaurant.... More

The restaurant is located around back and can be hard to spot but we had no problem finding it as we read about this online. The patio was very lively and is an excellent atmosphere. We made reservations in advance. The service was good although he forgot to give our table bread, he caught his own mistake and offered to... More

I had the Châ Giô Salad, which was Vietnamese spring rolls - fresh greens - coriander - mint - glass noodles - cucumber - bean sprouts - chopped peanuts. Awesome! Service was great! Ate on the patio which was beautiful even on a cloudy day!

I was a little hesitant about eating here after reading some of the negative reviews. I'm delighted to inform Trip Advisor readers that our visit to Chez piggy was 5 stars all the way! We ate in the bar dining room at a lovely table tucked in a corner next to the windows. As evening progressed the view of the... More

With a party of 5 plus 2 young children we were made to feel welcome and the children loved the atmosphere of trees etc. The variety of different choices both for specials and appetizers was very nice. Prices are comparible for downtown Kingston upper cuisine.

The patio at Chez Piggy is a must visit in the summer. Visited with friends to enjoy the Happy Hour feature that runs from 3-5 daily. There is a nice selection of wines for $5 a glass and appetizers at a discount price. We shared a cheese board, hummus and the spring rolls. The food was tasty however we were... More

We're glad to hear you enjoyed your Happy Hour visit on the patio. Our cheese selection at Chez Piggy is chosen from the cheeses available for sale at Pan Chancho and changes on a regular basis. Your server would have been happy to let you know which cheeses were being featured that evening. More
