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

Now this has got to be one of the best tables in the Eastern Townships. We had supper there on Monday, October 13, 2014, around 7 PM. 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

I chose... More

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
