Wonderful dinner

Had a great dinner with an old friend. I have been to L'Orée on several occasions, and I must say I have yet to be disappointed. The food and service is always impeccable. The only disappointment was the limited wine selection.

This is our go to restaurant when we have a special occasion. There is always something different to eat and the table d'hôte is an excellent value. They serve wild meats and the wine pairing is great. They are located in a remote corner of a quaint little town in Gatineau Park. The food, the service and the wine list... More

The theme is lobster this month for the Sunday Brunch which coincided with Mother's Day A lobster bisque, lobster salad, lobster claws and for main course a lobster paella, Dessert was a mixture of rice pudding, pears and a nice cake. Service was first class as was the food. Both mom's were very happy! And then there is the Quebec... More

In the past we have enjoyed this restaurant but this was not the case this evening. The service was very disappointing. It seemed we had to wait for everything and near the end we had to start demanding to get served. The waiter and waitress would disappear for extended length of time. The hostess decided to have a 30 minute... More

Nice restaurant located right beside the Gatineau Park. The food is always amazing at this place. I usually stick to the classic such as the bouillabaisse and the lamb. I tried the mushroom feuilleté and I was quite impressed. The service is always great with lots of attention. Wine selection was also very good with nice private imports. Price are... More

Excellent. Have been a number of times and never disappoints. I bring friends here from out of town and they love it. I've been to Montreal and Quebec city and have yet to have french cuisine loke this. Their soups are excellent. Highly recommended!

As I said in a previous post, I've been a regular of this resto as I live nearby. Instead of the Table d'Hôte we went for an entry and a main course. They have only one type of salad as entry and it was $ 7,75 for a Spring Mix or whatever they call those at the market these days... More

Very nice location in Old Chelsea, at the gates of the Gatineau Park. The restaurant combines high quality food and excellent service with an informal atmosphere. A varied and original menu. Many of the dishes have a local flavor, much inspired by the rural setting. One of the best options for a good meal in the Ottawa-Gatineau area, appr. 15... More

I was invited by my boyfriend's family to celebrate 25 years in business. I recall the food was very delicious and I met his business associates and friends. I tried a appetizer that I never tried before, pate.

A lovely private upstairs room accommodated our small group wedding reception dinner. The group menu provided a good selection of options and a substitution for a couple of young guests was willingly provided. The caramelized onion soup was a wonderful start to the dinner and the five small desserts on a plate were homemade and an excellent finish to a... More
