“great bang for your buck”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We enjoyed the table d'hote dinner, which at $53 per person including wine was a bargain. The food and the service were superb. The only negatives were that the place was quite noisy and our initial experience with the lady at the front desk was not the greatest. We had come in the night before (at 5:30, mind you) without a reservation and she gave us the impression that she really didn't want to be bothered finding us a table (there were lots available, although they did have a lot of reservations). She also told us that they had not room the next night. Luckily, we had our hosts at Auberge Fleurs de Lune call them the next day and (surprise!) a reservation was available at our preferred time.

“satisfactory”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

We ate here on a Saturday night and the restaurant was completely full. That being said, the service was indeed very slow, so slow that we skipped our dessert & coffee that was included in our table d'hôte. The food was good but rather ordinary, I had the roast beef & my husband had the lobster.

“Worth a try!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Service is maybe somehow lacking finesse and a bit slow, but we had a very good time with the staff, a true reflection of the spirit of the people from this part of Quebec.
Food was very good and portions were big enough: lamb was perfect and prime rib delicious!
Deserts were a bit disappointing.
The place is clean and of modern design, a nice change from "nice old charm".
Would definitely recommend for a good time in la Malbaie!

“Held hostage for nothing special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

This restaurant was suggested by our B&B owner. We were very disappointed with the quality of the food and the service was extremely slow.

“Poor service and food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We must have visited on an "off" night as the service was poor and the food poorer! We wanted something simple so both ordered burgers. I am not a fan of McDonalds but I feel sure that I would have enjoyed one of theirs more than the dull, dry one that we were served. Starters were adequate but nothing special. We skipped desert!
