Apparently it is tough to get a reservation here. My brother-in-law secured one with two weeks notice and given the hype I was geared up for a porcine extravaganza. I was disappointed. They were out of the two main pork dishes by 8pm. I ended ordering a fish dish [which was good]...but...when your restaurant is called Au Pied de Cochon... More

What a stupendous place and vibe for the "Meatetarian". A genuine Pork Lovers Mecca featuring "ambrosial food" and "nectarous drinks" worthy of the gods. Come with your--pork belly--empty. PS. Many other animal species available.

I went to au Pied de Cochon with some friends for a girl's night out. It started out well enough: we were seated and ordered our food pretty quickly and our waiter seemed nice and attentive. We had ordered some appetizers (fois gras cromesquis and duck carpaccio) and their signature Duck in a Can for the main course. Then began... More

Heard great buzz about this restaurant, so we went to try it out. Very very busy and crowded, must have a reservation. Can watch the open kitchen working. The seared foie gras was fabulous and if we had known that was the best part of the meal we would have had two. I had the duck in a can, a... More

It is always a treat to dine here, especially when Martin Picard is in the restaurant, dining with friends, and looked like he was fresh back from the cottage. I would have loved to be at that table! PDC is a must go-to dinner restaurant when in Montreal - not one vegan or vegetarian would feel comfortable there. It's meat,... More

Wow. This place was amazing. Bring your appetite and love for all things meat because the portions are massive. We shared the charcuterie and the stuffed pied de cochon with fois. Both were so delicious. The cocktails were excellent as well.

Make sure you get a reservation! Highlights were bluefin tuna tartar and 'duck in a can' entree. Heavy, meat-focused food, so definitely save up your appetite for that sort of fare.

While we enjoyed what we ordered (poutine with foie gras - delish!!) we had a slim selection (July 3rd). Several mainstay items were not available which was disappointing and odd. Table text to us, seated after us, had the same frustrations - even more so as desserts were even unavailable when they ordered. I'm glad we ate here as part... More

I was visiting Montreal with some friends for the long weekend and I found this place beforehand. I was really looking forward to try the foie gras poutine. When I got there, the place was packed and the hostess told us that the entire night was booked and without reservations for that night and the next, it would be impossible... 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.
