OK here's the thing. Big reputation, busy, happening vibe, bistro style restaurant in Montreal. There is a wood fired oven and lots of colour and movement. Service is slow. We ordered three appetisers: onion soup was good, deep fried foie gras good and tuna belly good. The mains were 90 minutes in coming. The suckling pig chop, a special, was... More

We just had to do it!! My son and I ordered the pig's head for dinner at Au Pied de Cochon. I had read about this possibility ahead of time and fortunately there was still one available for our dinner. It was quite an ordeal. I got to watch them prepare the head and when it was brought over to... More

Fab, fun-filled, busy bistro. Nothing fancy - just good old quebecoise cooking that focuses on meat and seafood. Extensive wine list that can go very high price-wise. Not a romantic place for intimate dining, but great to experience with foodie lovers. Not a vegan friendly place for those who have reservations about carnivore. Reservations needed well in advance! Have the... More

A few months ago when we decided to plan a return trip to Montreal, making a reservation at PDC was the first thing I did. While I was initially slightly disappointed that we were seated at the bar even though I had booked so far in advance, I got over it quickly. Our server/bartender was amazing, I've never had so...

This was a combination of a fabulous dinner, wonderful ambiance, and a great performance...all rolled into one! Don't miss this, but make sure your waistband is loose going in! Our waitress helped guide us through their fabulous menu. If you love foie gras, this is your place! Don't miss the Duck in a Can....it was truly spectacular. I would highly... More

I have been coming here consistently for the last 7 years, and it is one of my favourite restaurants. Though it can be slightly inconsistent, I find the food to be usually very good, with a menu with so many interesting items you dont really know what to choose. A problem i have with this place is that the mains... More

One of the most decadent restaurant/meals I have ever had. Bring your appetite. I ordered the duck in the can and it was marvelous. Seriously though, the restaurant is not for the faint of heart.

Pros: Food: Great food. Portions are generous. We shared the infamous foie gras poutine (19$) and clams in a creamy wine sauce (20$) as appetizers. We then had a daily special which was a shepard's pie made of pork and veal topped with some foie gras (36$), the bison ribs (29$) and the magret de champignons (25$). Everything was well... More
