By fare, the best mussels I have ever had in any restaurant to date. The broth can be a soup all on it's own. The table d'hote is a bargain, and the service is excellent.

To start the service is tops, all the staff do all that needs to be done to make the client happy. Not kidding. The atmosphere is great, and the food was absolutely delicious. Just went last night, we will go back again soon.

Dined last night with friends who had not experienced the excellent cuisine of Pinocchio. The service was very good, but the food was more than delicious and well prepared. The halibut and couscous was perfectly prepared. Tomato soup was very tasty. In was another grand experience at a fine restaurant in Magog.

Magog, QC is basically a summer time lake front resort community with an abundance of shops and restaurants of all types along Rue Principal/Main Street. The ski business in the winter is a good deal smaller. We have a cottage in a town not far away and were looking for a place for dinner with a house guest after attending... More

The restaurant was almost empty, we were just walking past it looking for a place to eat. Am I glad we ended up there! The restaurant itself is very modern, with a touch... More

We first ate at Restaurant Pinocchio when it was called "The Sins of Pinocchio" several years ago. We chose it from a listing of places to eat in Magog and were delighted with our find. Every year my husband and I come up to northern Vermont for a 6 day stay. As part of our trip, we take a day... More

Ate at Pinocchio in early October during a weekend getaway to magog with my wife. Read the positive comments about the restaurant and passed by in the afternoon to see the place and to make a reservation in person. The decor is very nice. When we went back to eat later that evening we found the noise level a little... More
