Although the price is too high, the singularity and the quality of the food and of the wine make it a must ! The decor folkloric and modern offer a great ambiance and the service is very good. Better to go on a winter evening to enjoy the warmness of the interior decor and of the fireplace. Ask for a... More

The setting is charming, with tasteful artefacts of the native tradition and the Fall foliage through the large windows was inspiring. My wife andI enjoyed an... More

This restaurant offers an original menu. Everything in the plate was delicious. The service was courteous and thoughtful. The atmosphere and the decoration is a real tribute to the Wendat nation. Prices are reasonable for this quality of restaurant. A must see for tourists and everybody else.

If you want to work your way through a menu that is totally original and which features combinations that you will probably have never seen before, this is the place. It's a beautiful restaurant overlooking the rushing, raging Rivière Saint-Charles. There is a small, friendly bar for pre-dinner drinks and then the restaurant with its panoramic windows, roaring log fire... More
