Best service I have ever received in my life. We were welcomed as family, the place is a very cosy chalet establishment. the food portions were amazing and the service was incredible. Everything is home made Italian food, where the owners are the chefs. We order from the table d'hôte, and received appetizers, entrées, main meal, desserts, tea/coffee and even... More

Excellent Italian food and great service. The couples would love it! The owners are very caring. The interior is very warming and the view to the Round Lac is extraordinary. I consider this for one of the top spots in Ste-Adèle!

Too expensive for the quality of the food. Excellent martini. Tomato sauce lacked flavor. The lamb braised in rosemary and orange tasted of neither but not bad nonetheless. The eggplant appetizer was very good as was the chocolate moose cake. The apple tart did not taste like apples. We had two waitresses who were both nice. It wasn't that busy... More

I am not crazy about Italian cuisine, but this restaurant is a wonderful exception in my list. Family running, very thoughtful service, great kitchen, perfect food. The tiramisu was simply phenomenal, i should admit. Will go back again when in town.

We were here for a dinner on January 1 2016. This was one of the few restaurants open on the New Year's day. What a great experience! This place is a family restaurant and they will make you feel right at home. The owner Albina takes time to greet each guest and chat and create a welcoming atmosphere. The food... More

We spent a lovely August evening here. The atmosphere was cozy and the family will welcome you warmly. I had the pasta duo which was fantastic. Everyone at our table were pleased with their choices as well. The Table d'hote included a starter and a very nice selection of desserts, which are made in house. I had the chocolate mousse... More

It had been several years since we ate at Esmeralda- it was a favorite place of my father's so going there is a bit of a pilgrimage for me. It can be hard to relive fond memories but not much has changed at this restaurant over the years which is a good thing! It serves an extensive and traditional Italian... More
