This is a fine restaurant where you get a beautiful decor, a great ambiance, good food AND a GREAT service. The staff is efficient and smiling! A member of the staff called us at home to give us directions for a free parking in the area. Wow!!!

Went to Chez ma Grosse Truie Cherie during the Montreal a Table! Event, an annual event geared toward offering low-cost, high quality tasting menus - and glad we did! The restaurant is located within walking distance of the Papineau Subway station. As we approached we saw the giant pig statue emerging from the roof and knew we were in for... More

If you like pork and different parts of pork, this restaurant is for you. My husband and I were there on two different occasions, in August and September, with two separate groups of friends. Everyone liked their food, from duck foie gras to boudin noir to pork ribs to the French Fries. Unfortunately, none of us could say the food... More

Good: * The decor is original * The service is fast * They have a large wine selection Not so good: * The restaurant doesn't have small tables, only big communal tables. * Even though the restaurant was mostly empty, we were seated at the bar. * I had the ribs (half plate for 26$). It's way over-priced for the... More

Was basically ignored for 15 minutes before I was presented with the menu. The waiter seem to be more concerned with the hostess then any of the tables in the section. The food was just ok. Went for the Montreal tbl promo. Still came out to 60 bucks which wouldn't have been bad if it was decent . Wouldn't return

We were a table of ten, of which four were children. The restaurant was very accommodating when it came to the children, we were not forced to order a meal for them, rather everyone took something from their plate and the kids had a veritable buffet! As an opener, I had La soupe de la Truie, a beer, caramelized onion,... More

Really enjoyed the food over there and on top of that the hostess was just really friendly and sat us on the patio even if it was a hard task for her since there... More

First of all, service is excellent. Our waiter had a few tables assigned, he was always around to answer our questions, and for me this is very important. The food quality is quite good and menu selection is original. But, the price is expensive for what you get, I ordered the tartar it was good, portion was small. My friends... More
