The restaurant is easy to get to, is by the water, and the atmosphere is quite nice. The portions are very generous and reasonably priced in comparison to some other restaurants. Service was prompt and adequate, although when I asked to take the rest home the waitress gave me a box at the table and I was expected to box... More

The server was, smiling, pleasant and very efficient, made us feel... More

Our experience was not good, the waitress - who was friendly - brought our coffee cups with all her fingers around the rim, that is disgusting and poor training by management. My serving had 6 different fruits on the plate - definitely not appealing, all dried out. My wife ordered waffles with fresh raspberries, they were NOT fresh, we mentioned... More

Décor is not what would bring people to this restaurant. However, it is by the Outaouais River. Service is good, the price is very fair, and the portions are more than satisfying. The menu has a large variety of choices.
