I have been here maybe 20 times in the last 5 or 6 years. It just never disappoints. Service is friendly and food is consistently over the top amazing. Last nite it was a quebecois charcuterie platter that was an awesome starter. For a main course it was the rabbit meat loaf, amazing moist delicious flavor. Crepes suzette for dessert.... More

This place came highly recommended from some people that are very hard to please. So i called two weeks out and managed to get two seats on a Friday night at the bar. that all they had left... two weeks out. Thats a good sign in my book. As far as getting there we walked from our hotel on Sherbrooke... More

We tried the fois gras cromequis, chicken liver mousse, onion soup, duck in a can, fois gras burger and PDC melting pot. I do not eat pork and beef so I did not try the burger and melting pot. However, all the other items are very good. The duck in a can has a very nice texture and mixed with... More

Make a reservation in advance as the place can get very busy during peak times. Recommend to sit at the counter, which puts you right in front of all the action. Watching the team of chefs cook and interact with each other was almost as good as the food itself. It definitely made the experience that much better. If you're... More

Where to start? The 'amuse bouche' balls filled with liquid foie gras - amazing. The foie gras poutine - amazing. The wines - fantastic and reasonably priced. Maple syrup infused creme brûlée - sublime. We sat in the open window for the early sitting and enjoyed the street life outside. Professional and attentive staff. The only downside to this place...

What a crazy place! Veggies avoid... Foie Gras and meat lovers rejoice. We weren't feeling that hungry, so just went for two fg starters and one stuffed piggie with fg. This was more than enough. Veggies come in the form of cheesy mash, onions, garlic and mushrooms... It's a pretty cosy place and seems to have as many staff as... More

In lieu of the traditional turkey dinner for our Thanksgiving holiday in Montreal, we decided to dine on pork and foie gras! We feasted on foie gras poutine, duck two ways, and the namesake dish, pied de cochon with foie gras. It was nothing less than decadent. Service was attentive and friend. The environment cozy but vibrant. I would highly... More

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
