I have been there about four times and the quality varies somewhat but the price never does - it is expensive. The decor is mediocre being an old store front with the standard heavy aluminum doors and some attempt to make interesting moulded wall patterns with 1*2 painted lumber. The bar area is nice though. The doors arrive directly in... More

I absolutely love this place... This was recommended to me by a local which was sitting in the plane next to me while on my way to Rimouski. He said it was a good place to go and I was so pleasantely surprise with the menu, the preparation and the flavors in each dish. This was the last place I... More

We spent a great evening in that place. Not only is Isabelle and the crew available and knowledgeable about wine and the region, but the chef and the kitchen staff made some very impressive plates for us. From our soup (Soubise, which is onion, and bacon "crême"), to the entree (marvelous "foie gras"), to the main dish (lamb, just cooked... More

We had dinner for two here, following the excellent remarks on tripadvisor. Although the dinner and dessert were good, we didn't find this restaurant exceptional. The wine was of rather low quality, and we paid 120 dollars for two, which is on the expensive side for what we got. This may be the most fancy restaurant in Rimouski but meals... More

Returning from a trip to the Gaspe we spent the night in Rimouski and dined at Bistro L'Ardoise based on other Internet reviews. It is an excellent restaurant with an interesting menu, far more imaginative than anything we found in Quebec City. My wife and I agree that on a future trip to the Maritimes, that Rimouski and this restaurant... More

I visited here recently with a fairly large group of colleagues. I recommended this place to them due to the #1 ranking on TA. Originally, I had wanted to try this a few days earlier but they didn't seem to be open. First off, there is a gourmet pantry right next to the resto. In fact, they are connected and... More

Everytime we going there the food is good but it's a typic French Cuisine, don't expect too much... The owner is also the server, she seems really enjoying wine but when you enjoy wine, like me, i do, and the serving temperature is so Much important that you just not sometimes realize how could affect the wine.... The 3 times... More

. All four friends enjoyed, the fine atmosphere, exquisitely friendly service and overall comfort of this Bistro. From stuffed rabbitt with local wild mushroom sauce to duck, veal and fish soup, this bistro offers a classic but healthier and more modern version of the usual bistro fare. Fresh, locally grown, original and organically grown vegetables are cooked to perfection. The... More
