4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2014 NEW

we both had the same meal, local Charlevoix lamb. It was a choice piece of meat, very tender and perfectly cooked. They simply served it on some lightly steamed local vegetables straight from the field. At $36 for the main course, it's steep, and the waitress was a bit expeditious. but the food was great.

We wanted a small special place for our first dinner as husband and wife :-) and it was perfect. Romantic small restaurant with amazing service. Food was tasty, served a in a fancy 5 star restaurant. Even with the night getting busy with many tables services remained up to par! Recommended if passing or visiting Charlevoix.

This was one of the best meals I have ever had at a restaurant! It is a charming setting-a house full of character and history with several small dining rooms that are nicely decorated with soft lighting and a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The meal was first class in every way-artisanal bread to start, a variety of locally-sourced and fresh... 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
