My wife and I decided to take a 3 day holiday and ended up at the Manoir Richelieu in Malbaie. We had a good meal with a spectacular view of the St Lawrence river. We ventured out the second night and are we ever glad we did. We dined at Chez Truchon. What a lovely romantique restaurant. It is in... More

We are staying at the Manoir Richelieu for an introductory visit to the region but it seems like there are other dining establishments in the area that were much more highly recommended. Chez Truchon was one of them and it was indeed outstanding. I should say that we only ordered drinks, appetizers, and a dessert as we prefer smaller sharing... More

We were told about this restaurant by the Fairmont Concierge. It was the best meal we had on our trip. Benoit was a great waiter. It was so good we came back for breakfast!

Agree with most of the reviews... thanks TripAdvisor for making us aware of this great restaurant. We ordered the lamb and summer risotto (with mushrooms and seasonal vegetables). The lamb was nicely cooked and very good and the risotto was excellent. Also had the Argentinean red available by the glass which was robust and reasonably priced. Our waiter (Paul D)... More

While staying at the Fairmont Manoir Richelieu, we requested some dining recommendations from the Concierge. She gave us three to choose from, but when I asked what was HER favorite, she answered Chez Truchon without a hesitation. We were THRILLED with her recommendation. The service was a casual pace ( do not expect fast!!!!) with excellent recommendations. In the end,... More

A cute restaurant with excellent choice showcasing local ingredients with knowledgeable and friendly staff. Went for Sunday brunch and the menu was ample which pleased a group of 10. We were nestled in our own private area and really felt the warmth of this property. Food was delicious and portions were more than generous. Delicious and fulfilling and will return!
