Superb service by Patrick. We felt like long time customers when we arrived at this lovely restaurant nested in the Gatineau Hills. The food service was outstanding with a great variety on the menu. The wine pairing with our meal is highly recommended. I like this restaurant for its cozy atmosphere and will go back soon.

We returned after this being our old stomping grounds some 30 odd years ago and brought our daughter and son in law. The place literally looks the same and smells the same.....brought back lots of old memories! The furniture looks the same and even the plates look very old French Canadian! We all had the Table du Haute as it... More

Rustic Quebec atmosphere meets fine French cuisine presented in a simple and down to earth style. Wait staff were knowledgeable and attentive and the selection of wines was very unique with a number of private import bottles that are not found elsewhere. Clearly they value flavor first of all. Some places spend a huge amount of effort on plating to... More

First, a bit of background. Guy and Manon Blain founded this restaurant back in the '70s and it became a local institution. It's located a mere 15-minute drive north of downtown Ottawa but feels as though it's out in the deep Quebec woods. When I first met and courted my wife, we dined here regularly. We had our wedding dinner... More

My wife and I along with another couple went to L'Oree a few weeks ago for dinner.. The entire evening was nothing but remarkable in all aspects.. The food, all four courses, were excellent and the service was attentive, friendly and knowledgable.. I would highly recommend dining at L'Oree at anytime.

We had not been there in decades. It lived up to our expectations. The food was very good and the service was excellent. My only disappointment was the crème brûlée which was not firm enough rather soft and "lumpy". But it was not enough to deter me not to give an excellent review since everything else was up to par.
