This is the place to satisfy your inner carnivore, just don't expect beef, this is for pork and foul. Yes, the food is very good and the menu options are fun.

The food was amazing. All hail the Foie Gras!!. Service was a bit slow, but for the wait it was all worth it. Highly recommend this eatery, and yes we will return.

Excellent as always, brought my longtime love and her family here July 31 and had a wonderful time as always. It was our fourth visit to PDC and this time I went a little overboard. The Lobster roll special was on the menu so I said ok. Along with Duck fat frites and duc carpaccio and a milkshake. Our table... More

We travelled from Cape Breton to Montreal for a few days and thought we were lucky to get reservations on our first evening at this place. We were seated at what must be their worst table, right by the bar entrance and dirty dishes drop off area. Almost every person banged into Us and dishes were behind dropped and the... More

We had one night in Montreal to go to a restaurant. After a lot of research we chose this one, and we were not disappointed! It is a Montreal institution, any one you mention it to has heard about it. It is quite busy and crowded, but you don't go there for the atmosphere. The best thing we had was... More

Pied de Cochon is a great restaurant for carnivores. Original take on pork, beef, duck and even fish. Great portions so don't eat before going. Once you are there enjoy the lively ambiance and look in the kitchen and in the wine cellar. Make sure to make a reservation, otherwise you will be turned around at the door. Situated on... More

I was intrigued to visit after watching an Anthony Bourdain show about Montreal where this restaurant was featured. The experience was amazing....great wait staff, vibe and foodie heaven. The specialty cocktails started us on a positive...and from there things were better and better. Be advised if you are not a foie gras or pork enthusiast this might not be your... 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.
