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

My wife and I were in Quebec City for a few days and enjoyed some very good meals but my favourite was definitely when we stayed in the Premiere Nations hotel and ate at La Traite. There is an excellent selection of wild game amongst other choices. I loved the seal starter. It was cooked kind of as a spiced... More

Have been twice to this restaurant. Once for the seven-course meal with wine-pairings, and once for the Sunday Brunch with family. Both were excellent. Out of the ordinary, the resto is in Wendake, a Huron Indian reserve. Fish and game meants prepared in traditional manner are delicious. Sauces use berries and other flavourings found in the wild, pair well and... More

"La Traite"--part of the beautiful new Wendake First Nations hotel -is indeed a treat even for visitors of the adjacent museum who are not hotel guests. The ambiance is as artfully designed as the entire hotel; the view of "wilderness" and a brook is a nice bonus. The food is exquisite--we had brook trout and, a special treat, local venison.... More

The four course menu that came with our "First Nation package" at the hotel was truly outstanding. I selected smoked eel as the first course. I never ate eel before but it was delicious, very delicate, absolutely delicious. The tomato soup, as second course, was very tasty, seasoned to perfection. The red deer meat for the third course was tender... More

Gourmet / fine cuisine restaurant in the Wendake First Nations hotel - spa - museum - gourmet restaurant - meeting facility all in one place that honours First Nation culture without being too "kitsch". It is a tasteful atmosphere that is rustic but elegant (if those two words could be used together). The restaurant specializes in gourmet food with game.... More

Nothing to dislike. May be a bit limited in selections for those who really really don't like meat. We had the romantic getaway package and all was superb.

The restaurant is in a wonderful setting, nested within nature in a very beautiful hotel. The room, although full, was very nice and even allowed us for a romantic evening. The food is state of the art and you do have real chefs in the kitchen! The only downside, for some of us, could be that the menu is divided... More
