We had such a wonderful dinner the first night of our vacation sitting at the small bar -- wonderful food, fun service -- that we decided to book our last night's dinner here as well after traveling to Quebec City and Baie-Saint-Paul for a few days. Unfortunately, our second visit was a bit of a disaster.
This is the first time I've written a bad review, but when the service is so drastically different in two visits, it requires a warning. The second time we sat a a table and the server seemed to forget about us over and over again -- to the extent that it took 1-1/2 hours to get a cheese plate followed by a salad. When the tables around us had come and gone after having three or four courses served, we gave up and canceled the main courses we had ordered.
Having said this, our first visit was so good that I think we would give it another try but would definitely sit at the bar!
