I have been gifted to eat at some of the best restaurants in the world and this was one of the best meals I have ever enjoyed. The service (as opposed to Frommer's review) was first class as we were slowly and expertly guided through our choices. Except for the Foie Gras with bacon on a buckwheat pancake and maple... More

Loved the place and the relax atmosphere. The food was delicious but obviously this is not a place for vegetarians. Service was so so as I found that the servers often made you feel like you were bothering them. But the food was great and we thoroughly enjoyed it!

What a trip back to my youth. Busting french Bistro, food flying by you. People chatting with wine glasses clinking. Pigs heads, Pigs feet, Foie Gras, Boeuf a la mode! If you going to eat like a quebecois and breathe quebecois this is the place to go for it. one of my top ten restaurants which says a lot. I... More

Pied de cochon is amazing and certainly worth a visit whilst in Montreal! But be warn: you should likely prepare you stomach and eat lightly during the day because this is not for the fainted hearth! Dishes revolve around foie gras but everything else is also just that: "gras" but in a very good and hearthy way! Arhmosphere is also... More

I know I review this restaurant once a year but I can't stop. It's too good, too much fun to be there and watch the cooks preparing mouth-watering - not for the faint of heart - dishes. The magret avec champignons is outstanding. The bison pickled tongue with tarragon is so good I absolutely must replicate. The French fries are... More

if you don't want a bunch of stuff with foie gras combos go anywhere else. Cramped bathrooms and tables. Rude staff having to explain everything b/c nothing is explained on the menu. Over hyped

The food is very rich and really sticks to you. SO with it though. I'm not a fan of foie gras but the foie gras poutine is incredible. Staff is friendly and courteous.

Had the pleasure of eating at APC. Started with the cod fritters, which were so creamy inside and then had the foie gras poutine - such a perfect combination of savory flavors. Fortunately, they had Christmas items on the menu which included the classic, cassoulet, which also had foie gras on top! YUM such a decadent, but also simple dinner.... More

We come to Montreal to eat at this restaurant and it never disappoints. We had an amazing "Beef Wellington" for two which was a special. Best to get any special they have on offer as it will be SPECIAL. Memorable meals have included duck in a can, poutine with foie gras, foie gras "Champlain", pecan pie. Come hungry! Sit at... More
