“Missing something”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

The restaurant is located in a cute part of town overlooking a creek. I ordered a the Malpecque oysters which was served with a vinaigrette and a little oil on the oysters rather than on the side. I noticed that some of the oysters were served at room temperature or a little warmer. The oysters did not taste as fresh as it should have and am wondering if the vinegar was to mask that.
I also ordered the trio tartar, which was salmon, beef and duck. It was good but there was something missing in all of them, especially the beef.
The service was excellent, the waitress was attentive
With dessert and coffee, the meal was almost 50$ +tax +tip. I felt that if the dishes were executed better it would have been worth it.

“A great restaurant in Sherbrooke”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

Splendid view on the rapids and falls of Magog river, right in downtown Sherbrooke. Ask to be seated at the lower level for panoramic view. They also have a nice corporate room way upstairs. Food is very refined, wine list impeccable (with several private imports), staff is great. Not too pricey. if you go at lunchtime, the quality/price ratio is at its best, with very affordable tables d'hôte. A great destination by any measure in Sherbrooke, and a personal favorite.

“A must-stop in Sherbrooke”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2009

Why hasn't this top restaurant received more accolades? Rivals many highly rated places in Montreal. Attention to detail, refined food, great wine selections
