Drove 11 hours for pig face! When we arrived, and ordered pig face, were told they did not have it. Second choice was pied, didn't have that either, then tried to order the charcuterie platter, they didn't have that either. Finally ordered "Hot Chicken". Was salty, but not hot. Were told by the waitress that it was Sunday and they... More

Meat eaters paradise: duck, porc, foie gras everywhere; A-Z fresh bread, amazing drinks, succulent main courses, themed desserts, this place will not disappoint. Lively atmosphere, guaranteed to have a great time. Reserve in advance for larger groups. Get the canned duck your first time!!

Truly one of the best restaurants in the world. Have been several times over the past 10+ years, and it never ceases to amaze. Traditional Montreal cuisine cooked by a great crew and the waiters are fabulous. Excellent wine list and worth a visit by anyone interested in food. Reservations essential.

Wish we could have eaten here more than once - loved the poutine with foie gras and the shepherds pie. Loved the maple bread pudding. Wish I had gotten the duck in the can. I will return!

Went to Au Pied de Cochon with family who are not as excited about game meat and Offal as I am, as in they are not excited at all. I was worried there might not be great options for them but everyone ended up loving their meals and I got to enjoy their awesome boudin and foie! My parents had... More

Realize day-of reservations are difficult for hot spots, but after calling and emailing, didn't even receive a response or reply. If you were booked or had a private event, at least say so on answering machine or website. Completely unacceptable.

First of all, if you are very health-conscious or a squeamish vegetarian- for the love of God do not come here. It is not the place for you. If you love all things pork and foie gras, along with other unhealthy stuff thrown in for good measure, all served with friendly enthusiasm and some good pinot noirs- then make a... More

We were not familiar with this restaurant, but the friend who was hosting us in Montreal suggested it. We were lucky enough to get a table outside and had such a sumptuous meal. The wine was excellent as well. The waitstaff was very knowledgeable and friendly and went above and beyond to make this a truly extraordinary dining experience. Great... More

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

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.
