Great Lunch

Comfortable, funky, friendly with locally sourced food! The staff was very patient practicing their English with us. The owner had great stories to share about the area.

Yes, actually I think this IS one of the better restaurants in Riv. Reasonably priced, healthy food with fun variations and combinations. Portions are plentiful and service is friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is interesting and conducive to quiet conversation. (I wouldn't recommend eating on either terraces.)

After checking on Trip Advisor we decided to try this restaurant and were not disappointed. It is very cozy and welcoming inside with excellent staff to cater to your every need. We tried the pulled pork and the pulled lamb dishes that were both served with a rice pilaf that was prepared with lovely fresh vegetables. They were both delicious!... More

If you would like to sit down to a simply delicious, gently seasoned, beautifully presented salad, come here. I had one of the loveliest salmon salads ever here. Wish we lived in Riviere du Loup so we could be regulars!

We stop here a few times a year when travelling through the area. The food is always so fresh, tasty and just a little different each time. Art displayed on the walls changes too. Friendly service and a really comfortable atmosphere. There is a deck out front that is used in the (short) summer, but really enjoyable. Some nights, there... More

We loved the place. Is very casual, nothing fancy, but is really good. Food was excellent. We had the fried rice with pork and we loved it. Service was very good too. They have like lanterns hanging on the walls everywhere and I was curious to see if they worked and when turned it on it happened to be the... More

The food was quite good but being rated as the highest restaurant in this town (on Trip Advisor) I did expect more. I certainly don't see why it would be considered the best. Regardless the food was fresh, the service was friendly and fairly fast. The dish that I had was quite bland, not hot and disappointing. My friend who... More

What a pleasant surprise at the end of the day. Highly recommend any of their rice dishes. We had pulled pork and lamb, both with homemade sauces.

Followed the reviews on a quick pass through and they were right on target. Wonderful dinner at a very reasonable price. Decent beer selection as I remember. But watch out -- cars going up the hill seem to consider this something like a drag strip so a quest for peace and quiet will take you inside or to the back... More
