I went here with my family. I've been here a few times over the years. The food was always good. But this time I was here with my family for lunch. The staff was clearly bothered by having to take care of our table. It was very difficult to get the waitress' attention throughout the entire meal. I don't think... More

Went here this evening. Walked in....place was almost empty...only one table. Stood around for almost 5 minutes. No staff to be found anywhere....the place was completely unattended. We decided we would leave because obviously they weren't interested in working tonight. Upon leaving there's a few girls having a smoke at the back door....one of them wearing an apron. This is...

We were on our way to Mont Tremblant, thinking we wouldn't have to stop for supper when our van decided to strand half our group in Buckingham. We walked from the Canadian tire (where we left our van) to the bistro while waiting on the rest of the group to drop stuff off in Tremblant and come back for us.... More

Famous for it's "oignon fleurit" (huge fried onion, check the picture) and it deserves it. Make sure to get that appetizer. The burger was good, but the fries were nothing special (not really crunchy/spicy). The place looks quite original with special accessories on the walls and pictures of people from the neighborhood on the menu frontpage.

We have been eating at this place for years and each time, they don't let us down. The menu variety along with the pricing is worth the visit. Love the fact that this restaurant seems to attract couples and adult groups of all ages. Also a great place for breakfast as they have great decaf coffee and cappuccino's. Definitely recommend...

went for dinner with good friends, we ordered some wine and had a very good dinner. The Staff is very friendly and they don't rush you out. The Staff is bilingual. Very good ambiance. We are going at least once a month.

With the update of the furniture and the modification of the menu, it is certainly a restaurant to recommend.

Buckingham is not the most touristy place and most likely business will take you there. For me, it is a halfway point between my office and some of my clients who are further east and I usually go for lunch. Lala Bistro is a fun and friendly place to go. The food is good and homy. They even have comfort... More
