Soup and salad on the terrace by a river

Locally sourced food served on the terrace surrounded by woods and the sound of the roaring river down the bank. A perfect setting.

Beautiful presentation, interesting menu and excellent service but I found the food to be very plain and lacking flavour. I got the impression that the chef is trying to please every pallate to the point where there is a decision to omit flavours which jump out at you. I have to say I was expecting much more when I saw... More

I had the great pleasure of dining at La Traite! Situated in the Hotel-Musee, the decor is elegantly Aboriginal - with traditional elements blended with contemporary. The food was delicious - each plate was decorated so beautifully. The food was wild game (we had smoked salmon, elk and caribou as appetizers and smoked ducked for the main course). To finish...

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

La Traite restaurant is unusual. Owned and operated by natives Hurons in Wendake, about 20 minutes north of Quebec City, it is set in a beautiful wooded area, near the shore of rivière Sainte-Charles. 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
