OK,so this is considered one of Montreal's better eateries...really? The food, in and of itself is fine, but seriously overpriced for what you get. Took my wife there for our wedding anniversary and from all the reviews and here say,I was expecting a bit more. The place is noisy and actually looks like a pub, with the food, but without... More

Umm... Do I need to go into much more detail than the title? Noisy, busy, crowded, raucous, 50% duck fat, 100% pork. Enjoy.

Amazing relaxed restaurant with seriously good food. Decadent, sinful, but to die for. Must try cromesquis de foie gras!!!! Explosion of goodness. It definitely exceeded out expectations especially the chilled atmosphere and cool staff... Would go back there anytime!!!

Au Pied du Cochon lived up to the hype ... Everything was delicious, impressive and while over-the-top in some ways, still grounded in just being damn good food, served right. The portions are huge - seriously skip lunch and come hungry. And if you like foie gras you will love this place.

You will not feel thin when you leave this place. Their food is incredibly rich and delicious and there is nothing lean about it. It can be a challenge to get a table on short notice, but our hotel concierge got us a table at 9:30pm on a Saturday. We started at the bar, where a helpful bartender recommended a... More

You have to get foie gras poutine. Also when in season the seafood towers. The bread that is served here is maybe the best rustic bread I've ever had. This place is like dinning in the backwoods of quebec, but prepared for anything...and be prepared to be stuffed

I took my son, a fellow meat-lover, to APDC while on vacation in Montreal. I had read a lot of mixed reviews and wasn't sure how it would turn out. We were seated 2 minutes after we arrived and were taken care of immediately. The service was simply outstanding across the board. And the food did not disappoint. We started... More

Can't say enough about this place. Must must must order the Duck in a can. I had this about five years ago and I still dream of it. Must go when you're in Montreal.
