On our recent visit to the beautiful Magog area (from Vancouver) we were fortunate to be introduced to this restaurant by our hosts. Pinocchio is an amazing high quality restaurant with modern décor and a great outdoor patio. We were overwhelmed by the presentation, freshness and taste of our choice of meals. I highly recommend Pinocchio's for a memorable experience.... More

Great experience. Well-made cocktails. Well-chosen and reasonably priced wines. Professional bi-lingual service. Especially enjoyed the boudin noir, salmon tartare and veal liver. Nice molten choc dessert. Elegant decor. Modest pricing, all things considered. We'll be back

The town was beautiful when we were there in July. The restaurant is located on a very quaint street with lots of shops and people nearby. The veal gnocchi was terrible. The salmon tartare was equally bad. The menu items sounded so tasty but were undercooked and not fresh, respectively. The filet was way overcooked despite requesting medium rare. The... More

We feel this is the Best Restuarant in Magog. Recent renovations are fabulous. The staff is very pleasant. But most of all they are very accommodating. We both had the fish special, a black cod. We asked for a different preparation, which was very willingly agreed to. Excellent wine list. Fantastic ambience. The cuisine is wonderful. This is a must,... More

The entree I had at Pinocchio was the best meal I ate during a two week vacation to Quebec. Everything we ordered was excellent. For appetizers, I had butternut squash soup, while my husband ordered a simple green salad. For our entrees, my husband had the beef. I ordered veal medallions with gnocchi and truffles. It was outstanding, especially the... More

We visited this place on a Thursday when they have a special for dinner at 22 $ for a 3 course meal. I had a salmon tartar, while my SO had a piece of beef. While the tartar was decent, the beef was barely edible. Service was cold and unwelcoming. Even with the special pricing, there are better food options... More

The menu was great. The place was packed on a rainy Wednesday night. Try the Mac&Cheese, it's unbelievable! The place is a bit noisy but you still can enjoy a nice romantic dinner. With drinks, desserts and coffee around 100$ for two. A fair value.

My wife and I had dinner at Pinocchio on Thursday evening (we called for reservations: a must in season). The place was busy, noisy and grand. My fillet was all time best and my wife's scallops were excellent. We would definitely go again.

We found this restaurant to be pricey but we were happy with the service and our duck breast meal. Would go again.
