Waited for 2 months to go there after making a reservation. Had eaten there before a few years ago. Since I can occasionally go off the chart in my eating habits I was looking forward to sharing the pig head for 2 with my daughter. Well guess what, they didnt have any. and neither did they... read more

This restaurant is a DON'T MISS. Be sure to make a reservation a they are generally very busy. We had the most amazing meal and drinks. The cucumber mojito was the best mojito I have ever had... I am pretty sure no other can beat it. be sure to order the charcuterie plate. Everything is well plated and delicious!

Absolutely amazing. We didn't order a single thing from the regular menu--specials only. A delicious dumpling experiment, a charcuterie plate that is to die for, a fois gras grilled cheese that is positively obscene, and one of the best cooked pieces of fish I've had in a long time. The staff was incredible, and it was clear that despite the... More

All the foie gras to would ever want to eat! The duck was also amazing. Reserve a table, as there is not much seating. Also, wear baggy pants - you will want to eat EVERYTHING.

Honestly, this restaurant doesn't need a review. The fact that we booked two weeks in advance, and all we could get is a 10pm reservation says it all. The anticipation was high, but it exceeded all expectations. The service was extremely professional, and the dishes were all amazing. I have not eaten so much foie gras in my life :)... More

After the bacchanalian adventure was over, I could barely lift myself out of the chair. The succulent fats, sugars and booze we're weighing me down and left me in a comfortable state of glee. I can now die a happy man.

My husband and I ate dinner here during our visit to Montreal, after being recommended this restaurant by a friend. The restaurant is small but very popular as they were busy inside. Despite having made a reservation, we still had to wait about 20mins to get our table. When we finally got to our table, we had a quick chance... More

Au Pied du Cochon is a meat lover's paradise (and if memory serves, it's one of Anthony Bourdain's favourite restaurants in North America). The foie gras, boudins and all meats are amazing. But don't overlook the fish--it's stellar as well. It's best to order a few things and share. Portions are very large.

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.
