The service by our knowledgeable waitress was helpful and effecient. We ordered the table d'hote offerings and the various starters and main dishes were all delicious . There was a wide choice of desserts too,... More

Everything we ate was good and we were a group of 10. Service was great, owners take the time to speak with clients. Would definitely drive from Montréal just to go eat there. Can't wait for summertime to go back and enjoy the terrace

I've lived in the area for almost 40 years, how come I have never visited or even heard of this restaurant before?? It reminds me in the best way of the restaurants we used to frequent many years ago, not old fashioned but classic. Wonderful Italian food, all the classic dishes you used to love, not trendy just really good.... More

Enrico et Albina opened Esmeralda in 1999 and it has been growing in popularity ever since. We have visited this place on many occasions, and each time it has been a delightful experience and given us a wonderful feeling of warmth. Not only they serve you a delicious bruschetta as soon as you sit down, but anything you order on... More

Location: In Ste. Adèle, right by the lake. There's public parking right next to the restaurant that you can use. The place: It's of a decent size and offers a fairly large terrace that has a view of the lake. The decor could use a bit of freshening up - it's a little old-school and it's actually pretty dim in... More

You have to go to Esmerelda for lots of reasons! The owners are very warm and welcoming and the food is authentic Italian. The restaurant is very cozy with lots of beautiful wood and plants and the terrace overlooks the lake and Chanteclerc mountain, its a spectacular view and the whole experience was incredible, with the most delicious Italian food...

I loved this place from the minute I arrived. I was greeted with a nice friendly smile from the waitress (who I later found out was the owner's daughter-I love the whole family thing!!) She found us a nice table and was quick to explain us the specials & offer us aperitifs. The food was great tasting, pasta dishes being... More

What a welcome discovery for my family & I in the Laurentians! I just had to write a review to share the great experience we had. This resto has great italian food. I found the menu caters to just about everyone's taste. I had the lamb, very delicious, and the perfect medium-rare that I had ordered. My wife decided to... More
