we visit here every year,but it seems that this place has lost its mojo.the food is ok,but it certainly lacks the flair it once had.service is somewhat pretentious,and the value is certainly not there.

This was a great place to have dinner. We called to book a table about an hour before, with no problems getting a 7PM place. Since the restaurant is located in an Auberge, the dining atmosphere is intimate and cozy. The service was excellent but unobtrusive. There is a choice of a petit ($35) and a full ($56) Menu. We...

The charming, century-old former summer residence, where Old and New live in perfect harmony, is situated in a tranquil neighborhood that allows you to really unwind for a few days while enjoying the lovely Charlevoix country. The soft colors of the elegant and tastefully renovated rooms exude a quiet charm and comfort that spells Welcome in capital letters. And a... More

Admittedly, my expectations leading up to the dinner at Truchon were rather elevated after reading so many positive reviews on TA. First impressions as we went in to the restaurant were pleasant as the house was full on a Thursday evening in early September. The ambiance was and reception were warm and inviting. The setting in an older converted home,... More

We visited La Malbaie in August 2015. We arrived the night prior and had supper at the restaurant in La Manoir Richelieu. As our supper was not very good we decided on dining out for breakfast the following morning. We ventured down the main strip in town and noticed Chez Truchon from the road. The old house with a modern... More
