The service is very friendly and almost professional. The ambience is pleasant, nicely set tables in an elegant room. Some of the food is really very good and some is just good. Nice touches including an amuse bouche and a savoury sorbet between courses. The foie gras starter was nice but not... read more

This restaurant came highly recommended and we do not know why. This meal ruined our anniversary trip. Other than the tuna appetizer (spectacular), salmon puffs and artistic plating - everything else was mediocre at best. The onion soup had chicken in it and almost no onions. The mushroom appetizer had chunks of some large slimy mushroom that had the most... More

We enjoyed ourselves so much 3 years ago we had to return with friends this time. The meal was very good. I ordered a green salad. It was lacking the wow factor I was expecting but the lamb I ordered made up for it. I was encouraged by the waitress to order the fries (they are cooked in duck fat-I... More

Could it be the best meal I ever had? Maybe. This place is amazing. We both had the 5 course meal - and did not feel that it was at all overpriced at $56. They use the finest fresh local ingredients and everything was beautifully prepared and served. On its own is worth a trip to La Malbaie. Don't miss... More

Very unique place. I can see why it is so highly rated. Beautiful restaurant, well decorated and so clean. The omelet I had was so fluffy and perfect. The coffee was very good too. Will definitely come back.

Ate here two nights in a row because the food was so good. The service is friendly and fast. The setting in an old house is augmented by a small but very good selection of paintings by Canadian artists. Make reservations - this place is very busy and popular.

We visit Charlevoix every year and try to find one new restaurant each time. This was 2015's new restaurant and it was wonderful. The service was great and the food outstanding. We sat outside, although the clear shades didn't allow for the full effect of sitting outside. Regardless, the atmosphere was good. My only complaint was that the porch where... More

Had terrific service and a top flight meal here, sitting on the verandah of this pleasant house/auberge. We had the 5-course Table d'Hote for $56 each, enjoying such delights as fois gras, tuna, delicious soups, an interesting white tea, ginger and rum sorbet to cleanse the palate before the main course and then mains of duck and beef, which were...
