The food was excellent, particularly the red deer filet mignon and the seafood bowl. However, the service was extremely poor, we received our starters before the bottle of wine that we had ordered, we had to ask multiple times for drinks. For the price charged, one would expect a more care and a more helpful service. Overall, the food was... More

My partner did not find anything on the menu as she likes food well done. A pasta was offered as a choice even though it was not on the menu; which meant we could stay and I got to eat deer meat was an excellent choice - it was done to perfection. for a mid October visit reservation was done...

Fantastic food, wine, jazz at a good price.. perfect! Can't recommend highly enough! The seafood curry was the best dish we had since Brooklyn NY ... and that is a big compliment as we have had some sensational meals! Enjoyed the local wine made from Maple sap ... dry and not too sweet!

Very popular place - get a reservation. Menu is interesting. Red deer filet, salmon both excellent. Light jazz begins at 7 - very enjoyable. Service very good, no language problem. Yes,it's expensive.

After spotting beluga at the mouth of the Saguenay fjord and booking a whale watching trip for tomorrow my wife and I had dinner in this restaurant. What a delightful meal we had! The staff was super friendly and the chefs did a wonderful job. Highly recommended when ever on the Route Baleine!!!

Husband and I walked in off the street just having arrived in Tadoussac. Quickly we realized that reservations would be required as the place was full. We decided to wait and reserve for the next night. No one paid attention for a good 10 minutes... or even acknowledged our presence. Why would they? They are slammed full and don't seem... More

We booked a table for dinner and did not mind the 40 minutes wait for our table as it was warm enough to sit outside. However, the service just got worse and worse. Another 45 minutes before we could order even drinks which themselves took an age to come. And then another wait before ordering any food (we only ordered... More

Up north in Tadoussac a very subtle, innovative, delicious meal at Chez Mathilde. Perfect (despite a small delay) and reasonably priced. We rarely have better in Paris...

We sat out on the porch on a cool, rainy night. But the heaters worked great and we had a delightful evening. The service was good; the food was amazing. This was the best salmon dish I think I've ever had. To get this quality food with imaginative presentation and combination of flavors in a small town like this just... More

Another trip advisor winner. Went for dinner at this place and it was absolutely outstanding. Shared the charcuterie platter to start and it is absolutely perfect for two people. Apparently the chef is French trained and makes all of the meat himself. For mains I had venison accompanied with a side of foie gras which I would highly recommend. My... More
