On restaurant Cabane a Sucre Au Pied de Cochon Sugar Shack Chef Deck says:

I’m in love OINK! I won’t be able to sleep until the next sugaring off season OINK! My Spoon Man is now Marin Picard OINK! I need that sweet maple syrup OINK!
This was one of my top 5 meals ever (and added my favorite 5 pounds to my sweet man belly)! As far as your preconceived notions about sugar shacks, poop scoop them, put them in a paper bag, light it, and leave it on Bobby Flay’s doorstep (because Martin Picard, chef of restaurant Au Pied de Cochon has reinvented the cabane a sucre (sugar shack). The highlights of the mains were:  pea soup with lardon and fois gras, the oreilles de crisse salade with ham, walnuts and mixed greens, buckwheat pancakes, fluffy skillet omelet with cod and scallops, deep fried lobster and beet sushi with maple syrup soya sauce, and a meat dish with magret de canard, rabbit, feve aux lard, and other yummyness. For dessert we ate pancakes cooked in duck fat, a burnt marshmallow maple ice cream baked Alaska, and a banana split with maple syrup cotton candy, candied nuts, burnt marshmallow, and hardened sugar pie filling stuff. The restaurant is now closed for the season, but if you want to partake you should think about reserving now for next year’s maple syrup season. We also have to thank Martin Picard for giving us these great pics for our gay website. So all in all this redone barn rocks harder then Alanis Morissette’s naked video(you know the one)!

Tastiness: 9.567864826/10
Ambiance: the barn from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly/10
Price; $45 fixed menu + drinks and tax /10

    Sorry but was disappointed by the cabana a sucre pied de cocoon. No confort no ambiance,music from old french to heavy metal not well taught. The food is ok but nothing to do wow. It’s an orgy of food to fill up anyone with a big appetite but no special taste. To expensive and felt like a buffet throned at you in a 3 star resort.
    very very noisy and staff don’t even know the name of the chef.I was expecting a bit of a champetre table like but picnic table with long bench and dig in to the 15 plates on the table. Some people even use their hands. Expect about 160$ for 2.
    Not good not bad just fills you up until you throw up. The bathrooms didn’t flush very well and nothing to visit on premisses. Would not go again

    Cabane aux pommes : très décevant, on s’attendait à beaucoup mieux. Service pourri. Rien d’original dans le menu.
