A busy noisy upbeat dining experience where the servers have to speak loudly, as well as guests have to do the same to be heard! We visited this restaurant last year and really enjoyed it, but this time not so much. Having booked the reservation weeks in advance, upon arrival we were told that our... read more

Two visits to PDC this week. I am a lucky man to have eaten here more than a dozen times. The highlight this week was an easy one, Chicken Pie! So imagine a whole chicken baked in maple syrup and then arranged around an amazing baked pie of guinea fowl ravioli and fois gras. An over the top presentation and... More

This place after traveling in America for 2months was a God sent. The food was delicious, light, portion controlled (in a good way), fresh and perfect for breakfast. The crepes were everything they should be. The waitress friendly, service great, prices were good. Highly recommend

We were quite excited to try this restaurant after seeing it on television - Anthony Bourdain The restaurant was quite crowded and seating was tight and cramped. For appetizer, we had the seared foie gras served with a cream sauce. It was quite delicious; I even tried to replicate the dish at home! For the main course we tried the... More

We did have a reservation, And we were seated at the bar in perfect view of the open kitchen! Fabulous cocktails (gin and tonic drink special with maple syrup and champagne!) , food, staff, overall A+ experience! (And sitting at the "kitchen" table was a true experience!) heard the hype & it did not disappoint!!!

This was our second time coming to PDC and were definitely prepared for the richness of the foie gras. We ordered the FG poutine, cromesquis and melting pot, all of which were excellent. I'm not a big fan of the blood sausage but my husband said it was really good. Service is very good and the turnaround is fast. Definitely... More

We made it to Pied de cochon last evening and the reviews, the hype, the expectations .... all of it was met and then some.... so let's break it down .... First of all the portions .... The piece of pork that I had could have fed a small village in eastern Quebec (that being said I was warned) !!!... More

What can I say this is the best food I have eaten in Montreal. The portions are more than you can eat and the flavours are out if this world. A must is to try one of the Foie gras. Service was excellent and the waitress we had knew everything about the history of the restaurant and the food..I will... More

From the minute you walk in and see the entire crew working quietly and diligently in the open kitchen, you get the feeling that you are in for a good meal. Foie gras is the featured ingredient in many dishes although there is a variety of dishes for all palates. I enthusiastically tried all the dishes we shared and each... More

We visited here again in the Fall of 2015 and it was even better than when I visited in 2013. Do yourself a favor and don't miss this place. This trip we flew specifically to eat here with friends and it did not disappoint. Ask to sit at the bar that overlooks the tiny kitchen....it will be the best dining... 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.
