We were delighted to get into this popular restaurant without a reservation. Took our chances, arriving on a weekday, shortly after they opened at 5:00 pm and were seated at the bar. The food here is unique, thoughtfully prepared and memorable (in the best way). It's also very rich so pace yourself. We had a variety of starters/appetizers and then... More

Holy cow, the bread here is phenomenal. I wish I bought some of the baguettes to bring home with me considering I'm still thinking about it days later. The food here was pretty good, but definitely not the best thing I've ever had. Like many, I had to try the Duck in a Can. I have to say, not as... More

APDC is without a doubt one of my favourite restaurants in the world! Everything on the menu is good. The pigs foot and the duck-in-the-can are my personal favourites. If I have to nitpick, you can get more satisfying poutine elsewhere in Montreal. The suggested wine pairings have been 100% winners. The atmosphere is bustling and totally Montreal, i.e. totally...

We came here since 2010. Except Duck in the Can and their specials dishes, the rest on the menu is not as good as before. The onion soup has no soup in it at all, Happy Pork Chop is 3 times smaller.....etc. I will import the pictures after.

Was lucky enough to get a Verrat and a poutine avec foie gras at the Au Pied de Cochon Food Truck during the Just for Laughs festival in Montreal. How fun!

The only thing I didn't see in the menu was the possibility of adding foie directly to my wine (oddly, I have been offered shaved truffle on my water once, elsewhere). Reservations at this place must be made with time, and even when you have one you may find yourself waiting 20 minutes for your table. And yet, the wait... More

I recently went to APC as part of a bachelorette party. There's only one large table (that could fit our group of 9), so I had to book the reservation a month in advance. At that point, we still could only get a 5PM seating. The restaurant was part of the gorgeous cobble-stoned eatery row, and every taxi knows how... More

Food is good, service is ok, prices are high for what you get. The setting is horribly loud - get ready to yell across the table. certainly not necessary for a trip to montreal,

One of my top 5 restaurants in the world! You cannot order anything off the menu that isn't amazing. The seafood platter was incredible, to include Whelk, oysters, lobster, shrimp, stuffed clams, and many more. The duck in the can was also delicious as the can is opened and prepared in front of you. The list could go on for... More
