What a feast!

Tired of deep-fried food and those greasy spoon restaurants? Go to L'innocent for a great experience. Fresh herbs, wordly ingredients and rich flavours dance through your mouth. The food is made by someone who must have a passion for food. If I would live in this town, I'd be a regular customer.

Great atmosphere and delicious food. We arrived for dinner to find a vinyl DJ spinning great 70's and 80's LP's. He asked if we wanted to pick a song! We came back the next day to have lunch. So good! Reminds us of our California home :)

This is my first review and it's more of a story so the condensed version is that the food was unbelievable and Martin the chef and owner when above and beyond to make our experience enjoyable. It's taken a while to write it but both my Partner and I felt we had to write one because of the absolutely amazing... More

My wife and I sought out this place because we'd heard good things. Just visiting Riviere-du-Loup for the night, and this was the perfect place to eat. A nice walk up Rue Lafontaine (the main street) takes you to this cozy, charming and very cool spot. Old tin ceiling, comfortable booths, funky tables down middle of room. A really nice... More

Cool decor and hillside neighbourhood. Very different, eclectic main dishes. Had authentic Quebecois desert -- sugar pie made with espresso and chocolate. Amazing! Excellent service and great music.

They say "fusion" but I would just say the food is a little odd....I mean, I am not sure I got what I ordered. It could have been the lamb-curry-rice dish but it seemed more like the pulled pork and rice dish. And when you aren't sure, you have to say the menu is quirky. But what is more important... More

Been here before, but love that the décor (ie. the art) changes every time. Food is excellent, service is always very good and the ambience can't be beat. All that at a reasonable price, too. Portions are always good, as well the chef always sends out small tasty pp.! Try it- you will return!
