Just when you thought you couldn’t have any more choices for outdoor dinning during Montreal’s lively summertime (or Indian summer, as we’re currently experiencing), we’ve got another one to add to your list! Chez Ma Grosse Truie Cherie is a stylish French restaurant located in the heart of the Village.
Its exterior is hard to miss and quite a site itself! You’ll be enticed to enter with its beautiful red colouring and giant pig mascot (not a real one, of course). The interior of course is quite lovely as well. With mosaic floors and simple décor, it has a very cool vibe without feeling any stuffiness. But the real star of Chez Ma Grosse Truie Cherie is its cute courtyard!
Chez Ma Grossee Truie Cherie‘s courtyard terrasse is a great place to enjoy refreshing cocktails and the finest local foods. While the restaurant’s front is located on a busy street, just a few metres away is the terrasse and you’ll be in a peaceful space and feel as if you’ve escaped the city’s craziness. Its unique décor is perfectly complemented with lush green plants. Should the weather not cooperate or feel a bit moody, no worries! You can still enjoy the restaurant’s exterior under its covered section.
Chez Ma Grosse Truie Cherie is also the perfect place for corporate or private events. Their main room can hold up to 120 guests and can have a DJ to really get the party going. A smaller room can hold 45 guests, and of course the expansive terrasse can hold up to 90. Chez Ma Grosse Truie Cherie also has a great space for smaller more intimate events and occasions that’ll hold up to 14 guests.
The menu at Chez Ma Grosse Truie Cherie changes each season and contains the finest local foods, wines, and signature cocktails. Their menu contains delicious meat dishes for the carnivores such as pepper steak, roast duck, and a variety of pork dishes.
The more health conscious foodies can enjoy veggie packed meals such as vegetarian lasagna and seasons vegetables. Mains go for around $23-$35 and entrées are about $10-$18. Don’t forget to make room for one of their delectable desserts!
Now for the real fun: their cocktails! Guests can enjoy fresh beer, local wines and expertly created cocktails; we doubt you’ll have just one drink.
