Portions are huge! Be aware that there depending on what you order, you won´t be capable of eating half of it. Ask the waiter about the size. Food is very good and service is excelent.

I'd gone here on March 14, 2015 after watching a review by Anthony Bourdain about this place. It seemed like a place I would enjoy: Good food, cozy atmosphere and hey, it's just a few hours drive from Toronto. Yes, this is one of the main reasons I drove from Toronto to Montreal to do an overnight trip...and it was... More

Nothing to dislike. Service is fantastic, menu like no other. The portions are generous, beyond flavorful, last meal before you die. The owner/chef Martin Picard is a genius, generous and down to earth gentleman. A must stop on any visit to Montreal, but make reservations well in advance.

This is one of my 5 tops restaurants. The food is excellent, tender and juicy if you like meat. Some of it comes with the taste of maple sirop but just a touch. Either the entree, main course or dessert, everything is tasty. The service is courtois, attentive to your needs, present but discrete. They also have a great selection... More

No one came to see us when we sat down, we had to ask for every single thing from water to utensils.... Took 2.5 hrs before we got our mains... And the food was "ok". Really fatty and too rich.

Booked a reservation months in advance for my honeymoon. Im not sure if I was more excited about the wedding or finally getting to eat at Au Pied De Cochon. Started with the Poutine Foie Gras which lived up to the hype, had a very tasty cheese pie. And finished with a Foie Gras, Pig feet, Duck and sausage Cassoulet.... More

My friend and I were very excited for the experience, with Martin Picard's immense reputation, this is bound to be a meal to remember!! We ordered the duck carpaccio and the tongue and tail terrine to start. We both had daily specials for mains, my friend had the steak with beats and I had a pork chop with maple maple... More

This is a once in a great while visit as the food is so rich, so awesome you can't stop!! DO NOT COME HERE IF YOU ARE ON A DIET!! Anne Marie is the new Chef du Cuisine. The dining room is loud, active and boisterous! FUN. Not a place for a quiet romantic date... The food is creative and... 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.
