What a treat!

Took the four service course and was not disapointed. Had the bisque which was lovely, then the mushroom puff pastry and the duck breast as the main course to finish it off with the chocolat plate. Yum! The waiter was very attentive, the onion souffle from the main course was simply delicious and... read more

We have visited this restaurant several times in winter as it is in a lovely setting on the edge of Gatineau Park in Chelsea, Quebec. This was our first visit in summer and the experience was equally positive. The food and service, as always, was great. But it was also a pleasure to walk around the grounds a bit and... More

My husband and I went there for my birthday. I asked for advice on selecting a bottle of wine. I told our server what type of wine I liked and the wine he suggested was nothing like I asked for. Also my wine glass was dirty. The food was a big disappointment especially after hearing how good it was supposed... More

I've dined at L'Oree du Bois a dozen times and it's always an amazing experience. The food is fantastic. My must haves are the "duck in all its states" appetizer, the duck confit main and the chocolate mousse. The ambiance is relaxing, the wine list is long and delicious and the wait staff are courteous. I dine there 2-3 times... More

Very charming restaurant in the middle of the Gatineau Hills. The food is exquisite and the service is beyond reproach. I have tried several dishes over the years and was never disappointed.

We went there on July 9, they had a wine degustation outside and we stay for dinner, we ask to change table because the table behind us was noisy, the staff didn't like that, it took 3 hours for dinner! Bad service, expensive and didn't worth the money, should keep my first idea and stay home and Cook a nice... More

Dear Bidou22, We feel deeply sorry that you had a bad experience at our restaurant. Please know that when special events like our Wine Tasting goes on, it can be a bit more chaotic in the restaurant as it is very difficult to plan how much people will show up, and how many will eventually go in the restaurant and...

It's a beautiful setting. We ate there about 26 years ago and it hasn't changed at all. The service was good. It took quite a while to get the bottle of wine we ordered . I had to change my wine glass as it was dirty . The lobster bisque was flavorful but no lobster on the bisque. The mains... More

Went with M.X to celebrate our anniversary. I still can't understand how this charming little place has escaped our notice after all these years! Well worth the wait.. Had the tasting menu which was divine. My only criticism is that there is a bit too much salt in the food. I don't use it much so am a little bit... More
