One of the best meals I've had in recent memory

This was a birthday treat for my husband, who is hard to please because he is an excellent chef in his own right. We started with elk tartar with dried breast of duck and the homemade chestnut spaetzli with veal sauce, pine nuts, dried tomatoes, and bacon. I had the Appalachian terrine of venison... read more

On 9 June we were disappointed to find that the restaurant was closed and had been sold to new owners who appeared to be changing it to serve pizzas.

We visit Val David at least once a year. Le Creux du Vent is one of our favorite stops. The menu is varied and offers three and four course dinners plus a regular menu. The service is professional. The atmosphere is pleasant. The wine menu is more than satisfactory. You will enjoy a relaxing dinner and be well attended.

My family and I rent a house for a week in Val David every summer from a friend. This Auberge, nicely situated beside a quick running stream with rapids has a patio around two thirds of the building to allow for the sights and sounds of this beautiful landscape. Two menus are offered, a three and four course meal.. reasonably... More

We had an amazing dinner at ale Creux du Vent. A wonderful appetizer of duck, followed by gazpacho and a wonderful salmon ceviche. The crowning glory was the perfectly prepared filet in the most amazing sauce. The steak just melted it was sooooooo yummy. Top off the evening with a perfectly scrumptious creme caramel. Oh la la

The restaurant offers daily 3 or 4 course menu selections. If you choose one of the daily specials the cost is $10 less than the regular table d'hote. We had the steak and salmon entrees and both were cooked to perfection. The vegetables were local and freshly picked. Wine is offered by the glass, 1/2 litre and by the bottle... More

The loved the setting - we sat on the verandah outside the restaurant overlooking the town and the falls. The menue was pre-fixe with several choices - all wonderful and well-priced. Excellent service.

Food, service, atmosphere are always perfect. For the price (about $30/person for a 3 course) imho it is the best place in Val-David. The owners and staff are very friendly making you feel welcome.

Spent 5 days in Val David from August 8 to the 12th at a rented home in the Area. This was not our first visit to the Creux du Vent. This is a true "Auberge", nestled beside a set of river rapids, with various room and meal packages for the B & B Traveller as well as the Gourmet seekers.... More

Loved the location and food. Service was really on the slow side - apologies were offered.
