  • Apart from the home which was nice, and the atmosphere, the rest was really disappointing. Loud music, we could not talk, the meal was not a meal of cabin in sugar, and of very poor quality, omelets too cooked instead of eggs in the syrup as it should be, sausages, ham and chips not very good, and the amounts were li extremities, not enough for everyone, had to ask for more despite the visible disagreements of the waitress. example 4 grandfathers 4 small pancakes and 4 tiny spikes of pies for 12 people. Not enough staff to serve. Also, the space was too limited at the table, unable to move. No I'm not going back, I was too disappointed.

  • No more never shack meal sugar to the Village D'Antan! Hospitality was excellent, the small cart with horses ride adds to the concept, and reminds us of memories for those who have experienced the time where we were going to the cabin in sleigh. The staff was very friendly, fast service and a few musicians went little songs of time story to put us in the Vibe. But now that the food came to erase the intro. No, I grew up with real food that is prepared to eat at the cabin, and I am very far from Centennial. The Fryer and small potatoes into cubes of style restaurant lunch were not in my time, no coleslaw tinged green doubtful such as you find in dishes of plastic at the grocery store, the omelettes either, were not part of the menu of the typical cabin sugar, eggs cooked in the syrup or only cooked and returned in the Pan, with a yellow still flowing coming mix in round potatoes cooked in water and, for the visit were added of the reduced the sugar legeremen t, but that it was for the visit or for Easter. Good ham roast that is watered good maple syrup in the new year with this taste again that we can recognize just by opening the pot, a scent that alone is sufficient to create the memory of spring. No I only did ask for not much, but a little more than what we were served. It almost ate and even desserts. Syrup pie looked more like a kind of caramel pie, pancakes were spongy and elastic, as for the grandparents to Maple syrup it was their best offer. In addition, has brought us a little bit of all the desserts but had to divide them because there is not for everyone. After, we have returned to parties after split our two great - fathers for us four. I still have to mention that the pea soup was good but without more, white bread is good but toast is not bad either. I would never dare to ask on the tables Maple butter I know it's expensive. Thanks for the pickles (kertchup House, and marinated beets) they were good and available in quantity, thanks for the Village and his small hut of time where one explains the process of maple water up to the culmination of the maple syrup. However, this is not enough to recreate at home - me and my family taste to return to eat in his cabin that we have not offered a meal of yesteryear.

  • We were a group of adults for the sugar shack. The service was OK, but it's the less good kitchen cabin I've tasted. Omelette rubber, ham and sausages from Maxi, even marinades were any. Loud music. But for families with small children, activities are then fun. For dinner only Shack, it's much too expensive, and we pay even for one person in the group who could not be present. Great disappointment.

  • Go there early. The 30 minutes walk in the forest is the most scary place. Note: long line ups to get into a haunted house does NOT necessarily means that it is the best one. Pick the ones with shorter lines up, you will waste less time and you will get the same enjoyment.
  • The Christmas village is horrible. Way too expensive for such a boring experience. Seeing the houses lit up is nice but that's it... all the activities are extremely boring and just plain lazy on the part of management. Also, the meal cost 30$ per person and is aweful! I've never tasted food like that in my life. It wasn't even edible.
  • I'm a native English speaker and I thought this place was really cool... The old cars driving around and the demos are super cool. I wish they had more free stuff on the inside as the tickets to get inside are NOT cheap... By the way, NO English is spoken there so French is a necessity.
  • We didn't know about this place until we saw a sign for it near the exit. Very enjoyable experience seeing what life was like in early Québec. Wasn't overly busy though it was rather expensive for our group.
  • Really nice set up but not so great for kids when animation isn't there weekends that's a huge fail. They should visit the Acadian village in New Brunswick to see how it's really done.
