Both the chicken and veal were tender, tasty. We had asked for linguine as the pasta but got spaghetti instead. The... read more

The Pub du Pont has become our place of choice in Magog. The food is great and reasonable priced. There is live music in the evening.

Super good italian cuisine with an early bird table d'hôte with lots of choices. Escargot Leornado and Aubergine Cake were excellent starters. Veal Parmigiana and salmon were superbly prepared, well presented, very tasty.

My friend and I went out for dinner. He selected this restaurant, wanting to try something new. It is in a wonderful location by lake Memphremagog, with a live band playing that was very pleasant. We sat on the upper terrace. The Atmosphere was very nice. The negative aspect the service was terrible, and we waited greater than an hour... More

Best location in Magog. Great food. Ambiance by the water is amazing on their heated outside terrace. Live music makes the evening very enjoyable.

Our favorite at the Pub are the "Bavette" which is excellent and the "coquille St Jacques" which is delicious! Benito has very good chicken parmenglia. The music in both... More

Italian food, good food, good service. Staff tend to try to rush you to eat, that is not a fast food chain thus server should calm down. In the end very satisfied with overall service and food

We had two of the most amazing meals here. In fact, we were so impressed with the service and taste of the first meal that we went back our second (and final) night in Magog. Definitely recommend. The meal will take a while, but it should - savor every bite and enjoy each course! The staff were very accommodating of... More
