A party of three went to this place that had been recommended by a friend of mine. Service was slow and sloppy: we have to ask for napkins and for the spoons for the onion soup. The onion soup was almost like brine, had potential but was ruined by excess salt, fortunately the busboy kept coming with the water. Not... More

Simply one of the best meals I have ever had. Everything waqs inventive and delicious (and stuffed with Foi Gras!). The DUCK IN A CAN is a must have dish. Listen to the wait staff they know what they are doing. If possible sit at the bar and watch tehm cook

I have been trying to visit this restaurant for years, but every time I come to Montreal, family commitments keep getting in the way. With the anticipation of finally getting the opportunity to enjoy a meal at APDC, I was worried that it would not live up to my expectations. It blew my mind. Excellent, excellent, excellent. I look forward... More

Indeed, it is only through the good will of David McMillan and Vanya of Joe Beef that I was able to eat at this Icon of Gastronomic Epiphany. Vanya contacted Martin Picard, owner of Au Pied du Cochon as well as The Sugar Shack. She secured my seat through Monsieur Florent overlooking the most advanced and precise culinary preparations by... More

Dinner for two here looked more like dinner for four people. This place serves up classic French dishes with a focus on home grown pig. The portions are generous and the food is good, so rich and fatty, one of the best pork chops I have ever eaten, perfectly cooked and finished in the wood fire oven. This is not... More

My wife and I had a great dinner here on a recent trip to beautiful Montreal. Nice long (but safe through cool neighborhoods) walk to the restaurant from our downtown hotel. Servers were attentive but gave the "right space" for conversation. Foie gras poutine is not to be missed nor is the foie gras burger. Local beer is fantastic, room... More

What other excuse do you need? Out of 5 dishes 4 had food gras. I need more Lipitor please. Superb friendly knowledge service. When there was a small service gap because our mid course pizza was delayed, the server brought 4 glasses (we were a party of 3!) a chilled shaker can of ice and bottle of house gin. After... More

We took an early reservation because we were anxious to try this highly recommended restaurant and was sadly disappointed when the special of the day was served either with leftover lamb shanks or very overcooked ones when other orders later sent out were more obviously fresher. The Bison Bolognese over Ink pasta tasted divine but the lamb was no help... More

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighbourhood 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 colourful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
