Chef's Table with Jean-Marc

Every seat was filled on our recent trip to L'Auberge de France for Saturday night's chef table. For those of us with no dietary restrictions this is a wonderful way to experience proper French cooking without crossing the Atlantic. There is no menu, Chef Jean-Marc comes out before service and... read more

It's the only thing I've had from this establishment, but they're the best I've ever had in Canada... If they're any indication of the rest of the menu, then this is an awesome restaurant/bistro.

Went there because we were enroute to Ottawa and wanted to stop at a decent place for lunch. This was the top rated place with a menu that include healthy choices. This place is a fantastic find! They make everything in house: breads, soups, fabulous French desserts. They smoke their one salmon which was delicious. Owner is from south of... More

Have experienced both lunch and dinner - the food is always excellent with wonderful flavours and textures and the wine list is good if not extensive.

Awesome lunch choices, definitely not mainstream, this is an authentic experience. Croissant is baked on site, lunch choices include things like quiche, smoked salmon in a bagel, unusual salads and nothing is quite like anything you've had before. Service is slow, so stay away if you are in a hurry. You line up to order and then later to pay.

The chef makes fabulous food! His croissants are out of this world, and the coffee is some of the best I have had in Belleville (could be better if they used filtered water instead of tap water though). This place is the most authentic European feeling place to eat. A true French bistro. The food is wonderful. I am holding... More
