We heard about Le Rio from friends that have a vacation property in the Laurentians. We were entertaining some family and looking for a restaurant that could accommodate the whole family. We have since visited about 8 times since we can count on the service, quality and fantastic ribs. All the waitresses walk around with a smile, they remember you... More

Great restaurant with super friendly staff, very family friendly and welcoming!..the food was very good, extremely juicy and tasty ribs, and probably some of the juiciest and most tender chicken Breast to be had..seriously it was as moist and tender as a cut of fish!, amazing fries and burgers too. Couple that with great ambiance and it's defiantly worth checking... More

It was our first time and our last. The service was very slow and when we received our main meal, we had already been waiting for over two hours. The food was fine but nothing special. Too expensive for what we got. We were quite a big group and everyone was disappointed.

We came for the ribs and they were amazingly good. The French fries are also great. The staff was friendly & the owner was attentive. A full service bar is provided and they serve a good size drink. Seating is available inside or on the terrace. We will return ..... soon.
