Regionally the Best in French Country cooking

Outside of France this place is my benchmark for French Country cooking. Having lived and traveled extensively in France I can say that there is no other restaurant that can so effortlessly transport you back without the hefty airfare.

I have a new favourite and it's just a couple kilometres from Camp Fortune ski area in Chelsae Quebec. (A 20 minute drive from most areas of Ottawa). The staff was incredible, especially the hostess in front. Service is bilingual. We went on New Year's Eve and I had never heard anything about the place, although my partner has wanted... More

Great food and service. Have been there several times and am never disappointed. The ambiance combined with food selection and wine really works. The service is top shelf.

Excellent menu, very classy European feel to the place but not snobby or pretentious at all! The staff is very pleasant and very knowledgeable of the menu and make explanations simple so that it is an experience each and... More

Haven't been to Loree du Bois for ages so was looking forward to some great French food, and it didn't disappoint. Went with a large group and everyone enjoyed their respective choices. It was quite busy but it did not affect the service; all the wait staff were very friendly and efficient. The seafood soup, braised rabbit and creme brulee... More

You can't place l'Oree du Bois in any box or label it within any restaurant category... it's simply magnificent food and the ultimate foodie experience in Chelsea. The owners, Jean-Claude and his wife, will startle you with phenomenal food and attentive service... but in an ambiance without the snobbish attitude from other 5 star restaurants. They have achieved the delicate... More

We visited L'Oree du Bois on a Sunday evening in October. Our group of two couples enjoyed the atmosphere and were made to feel welcome by both our waiter and the bus boy. Three of us had an excellent shrimp bisque to start, the other member of our group had a chicken ballentin (?) salad which he enjoyed. Both of... More

Beautiful location for dining any time of the year. The service is very good. Several people at our table ordered the venison and it was hot and miss. Some were cooked well but unfortunately several, including, mine were too tough to even chew. I'd stick with the salmon if I were ordering. The service is lovely, attentive and professional. The...
