Great service from the owners and a couple of dishes from the lunch buffet are actually quite tasty, I wasn't impressed, not sure is the number 1 resto in Gatineau, perhaps at dinner they have better dishes and more company.

It's always highly recommended to book to guarantee a spot. However, it's not required. As for the buffet, it's always available.

Family owned and operated, Chez Fatima is a place where you can discover the delicate seasonings of Moroccan cuisine. During lunch hours we serve a buffet featuring a wide variety of Moroccan salads and warm dishes. As of summer 2015, we are expanding our menu to include more Mediterranean food. This expansion includes a revamped lunch menu, buffet and the addition of Frank Bartha in the kitchen.
