Come hangry. The portions are over the top and each bite is figuratively larger than your mouth and just so rich with all the foie gras infused into almost every aspect of the meal. The duck in a can looks like a hot mess when they pour it on your plate, but it tastes like what the Grand Canyon looks... More

My wife and I ate here the last night of our four day visit to Montreal. I had seen the chef on tv years ago and also recommended to me by foodies and chef friends alike. The visit did not disappoint. We started with two gin cocktails from the sugar shack, mine with maple syrup and champagne excellent. The bread... More

After last year's cardiac arrest-inducing dinner of foie gras poutine and foie gras hamburger, I didn't think I would return to this restaurant on this trip. Yet, the online menu indicated a new item - a lobster and foie gras sundae. I had to try it. The "sundae" consisted of lobster pieces and seared foie gras, along with caviar and... More

We ordered the daily special tuna as an appetizer and it was both hearty and tasted amazing. For dinner we ordered the pied de cochon and a foie gras. Both were also very flavourful and the portions were definitely worth the higher price tag. The only problem was how long it took to get our food. It seems that there... More

Our hotel was able to arrange dinner at Sunday at 6:30 PM "at the counter"... that turned out to be much better than at a table because we had front row seats to chaotic, yet amazing cooking that went on at this small little place. The food was incredible, we had the foie gras poutine and the au pied du... More

Great ambiance in this small restaurant. You won't be disappointed with their unique menu but be ready to try their specialty of foie gras..it's their specialty. Our family dined there Sunday evening. It was busy, so, make sure to make a reservation as they are always busy. An special standout for me was the gnocchi which they prepared tableside. Gregory...

A friend recommendes this place and it was a good choice. The menu is extremely interesting, food is tasty and creative as well as presentation of the plates. I had a temaki beef tartare which was delicios. But the best part was a plate called duck in a can or something. It is worth a visit.

One of the more amazing and unique menus I've seen!!! If you aren't good with foie gras, you should probably think twice about coming here. We found the food absolutely wonderful. Wife had the blood sausage and foie gras tart, and I had the duck in a can. Don't be turned off by "duck in a can"....it was splendid! Highly... More

First things first reservations are a must! This place is always busy...but in a good way! We went on a whirlwind tour of Montreal and were told that we had to try this place and are we ever glad we did. From the moment we walked in the door the service was spectacular! Since we had reserved in English the... 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.
