Simple food, priced correctly.

Need the very simple HotDog or Burgers or the fine Smoke Meat. You"ll get it. You may also ask for a steak also! This is not an intimate restaurant nor shall it be considered a night out :). But for what it does, it does it right. And the owner is a great guy, he will make it the way... read more

My 12 yr old son and I stopped in at Chez Paul for a hamburger and Poutine. The poutine was some of the best we've had with LOTS of cheese. The staff was also friendly and kind as we struggled with practicing our limited french language skills. Once back home in Ontario, I realized we had left something behind and... More

It is a small "hole in the wall" that you can easily pass on your way to a restaurant with more curb appeal; however, for a small diner, food is affordable and very good. I was born in Magog and I used to go to their take-out counter when I was in high school, more than 40 years ago. I... More

For being in Magog for 1 year, we tryed manny restaurants. Cantine Paul remain our favorite. We often pick up after a long day, for a quick and good snak. The service is impecable, the plates (no matter what you order) are verry generous, and the food excellent, try their smook meat... Wow. This is not a "snobish" restaurant with... More

We went for a noon leisurely walk on Principale Street in Magog. We could smell this restaurant for blocks. There was no resisting giving this place a try. If you’re looking for a greasy-spoon, this is it – 6 small tables and one long counter. Enough “Journal de Montréal” stacked for everyone. Staff are smiling and friendly. The hamburger and... More

I was in the area with friends and craved poutine, and we headed to Paul's based on tripadvisor reviews. No one should expect a healthy lunch when they want to eat poutine - and this was not - but it was delicious. Restaurant was very clean, and staff friendly, so a worthwhile stop.

Sure this place has good ratings but do not expect much, just another greasy spoon. Food is ok. Fries are sometimes bad if they have not changed their oil in a while. No Coke there, only Pepsi, if you care. I like their poutine.

I just don't get it! We planned a nice 4 day getaway in Magog, and as we wanted a thoroughly relaxing, worry free long weekend, we did extensive research on everything from where to stay, eat, shop and which spa to spend time at (there are several choices!) We wanted no unpleasant surprises, or wasted time on "what, when or... More

I visited on recommendations found here - and I wasn't disappointed. Best poutine certainly! However, the service was friendly - the best I've encountered locally. Like everyone on TripAdvisor says about this place - the looks from the outside are questionable but once inside, it's a great experience.
