On holidays from Montreal, this was a meal comparable to any high-end Montreal restaurant. A definite must if you are in Malbaie. The service was impeccable and we had the pleasure of meeting the chefs afterwards. A very nice evening.

Unique concept. Two chefs take a protein and prepare a different dish with it. So you might have a choice between a lobster bisque or a lobster salad. Instead of a traditional appetizer/entree/dessert you choose two or three plates from either side and they provide a nice amuse bouche to start. The place is quite lovely and casual on a... More

This has to be the best restaurant in town! It's a special place, from the concept (2 chefs, 2 menus) to the remarkable service, but specially because of the quality of the food. Ingredients mix just perfectly in your mouth, and everything tastes so fresh. I already want to come back to try the rest of the menu!

I was recently in the area for a conference and came to this restaurant with colleagues. The Husband/ Wife Vice/ Versa menu is a great idea. All the food was excellent and we even got to meet the chefs! Thanks for accommodating us and giving us a great night.

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent evening at this restaurant a few days ago. We chose the option of three dishes each, myself from the men's selection and my wife from the women's. Each dish was delicious and unique and was served with a glass of wine specifically chosen to accompany the dish. Great, friendly service and wonderful food... More

We both chose the three small plate options and had the wine pairings. I actually write for a living and I'm also a former chef and it would be hard to praise the inspired dishes highly enough. My absolute favorite was the confit/fois gras plate and the wine that went with it. Each dish was elegant and the proportions were... More

We originally booked a table for two, then changed the reservation for 4 and then again for 5 ! On each occasion the staff was courteous and accommodating! The food was great and the service even nicer! You won't be disappointed...

The restaurant is run by two chefs: a man and his wife. The menu has the standard Table d'Hote layout on the left, but on the right is a unique menu. Two column labeled Vices and Versas. The Vices are the male side and the Versas are the female side. The ingredients are the same on each side, but the... More

Dinner here is a unique experience. You have a list of his offerings and a list of her offerings. You choose any three, which are served as if you are having three courses. There are wine recommendations for each item or you can choose your own by the glass or the bottle. The food was excellent but a little heavy... More
