Really nice venu

My wife and I had the opportunity to have supper there. Really electic menu. Both our dishes (panini sandwiches) were really tasty, well presented and filling. There carrot slaw is really addictive. We really enjoyed the experience.

Restaurant has a varied menu with lots of options to meet everyone's needs. The thin crust camembert pizza was amazing. We happened to end up here on New Year's Eve but early in the evening. The service was second to none, fabulous! Would definitely recommend and would return if back in the area.

We were here on own way home and lucked out to find this wonderful restaurant. The lunch menu was limited, but the brunch menu was huge. We had specialty omlettes and eggs benedict. Plates were too big to finish as they were served with fresh hash browns and lots of fruit. Service also very good.

It wasn't ! Sure, in principle it was a sports bar and had a lot of big screen TV's and was slightly noisy. But on a Monday night when many restaurants are closed, this was a great place to go, where the service was good, the food was varied and well prepared, the price was right. Can't complain and we...

A definite winner in Rivière du Loup…great onion soup, poutine & a very delicious chicken club sandwich…think upscale diner…a wee pricey but the food was great, the service was quick & friendly & it had a cool interior design…and was clean!!

Many TV screens abound with sports events. Efficient service and portions are really big, we took amongst others very good mussels with some less frequent flavours.

Visited on a Sunday evening. Had been planning this trip for months and had planned a return visit to L'Estaminet. Restaurant was very busy but we were seated right away on the terrace. Perused the menu and lengthy beer list. My wife & I decided on a Quebec microbrewery ale. Very good. We had out heart set on moules &... More
