Le Rio came highly recommended, and they didn't disappoint! The ribs and boneless chicken breast were delicious, with their amazing BBQ sauce. It's a cozy place with space to sit outside and the staff was really nice and friendly. Can't wait to go back!

The sign doesn't lie 'Best ribs in the Laurentians' it stated, and they most definitely were. Great food and great service.....and at a very reasonable price. We enjoyed so much we visited again on our last night of holiday.

From the first greeting until we walked out the door following a wonderful meal, the service was exceptional. Smiling, friendly staff that took the time to answer our questions. We started with the mushroom crunchers which were lovely and the calamari which was not. A little overcooked and the result was slightly rubbery. The main courses however were both exceptional....

First time at the Rio in St. Sauveur. Mitchell was a very good host and we enjoyed the "chicken and ribs". The service was very efficient and attentive.
