“Charming place with great food!”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

This is a very charming place, very cosy, with great service and good food with original flavours. We took a table d'hôte, and were very surprised by the quality of everything.

“The best meal of our holiday!”
Reviewed August 6, 2011

This was the best restaurant we visited out of the many during our 2 week tour of Québec province. It seemed to be mainly frequented by locals, which is usually a good recommendation. The service was friendly and efficient without being intrusive, and the food wasexcellent. The creme brulée with blue cheese starter was delicious; the steak was cooked to perfection and the cheesecake was gorgeous. Great food and wine - much better than in the touristy restaurants in Québec City and Montréal - and at a very reasonable price! We loved it!

“The best "casse-croute" hight standard existing ! Full of locals”
Reviewed October 1, 2010

The Casse-croute is normally a small stand or a small restaurant where you can eat fast food in Québec. This Restaurant Boreal is a small restaurant where the quality of the food, the quantity as well as the prices matches perfectly. They have a kind of "Haute cuisine" in a small traditional restaurant.

The atmosphere is fantastic: only people from Québec are there, no tourists. Probably also because Grand-Mère is not so touristical and the restaurant is not in the city-cetntre.
Anyway it was really full of people. Everybody wanted to have contact with us there: they found us interesting because it's a hidden gem where tourists never arrive. With spoke with half of the people having dinner there, we took pictures, ect. We had a real nice time.

About the food: as I wrote it's a kind of "high cuisine" with a lot of immagination. For example I had as a starter a crème-brulée made with blue cheese. A new taste for me! The meat was also very nice.. and the desserts are so nice! Don't miss "la tarte à sucre" typical from québec.

The service is made by a lady wich is very shy but keep on smiling all the time: so spontaneous and a sincere smile! She probably found us interestîng and funny too! I really like spontaneous people and not the typical service where they smile at you just for the tip at the end!

The prices: such a cheap dinner for such a good quality.. it's impossible to find anywhere else!

Location: when you leave the motorway in Grand-Mère, instead of going direction city-centre, go direction Parc de la Mauricie for about 3Km. It's on the left side.
Parking: just in front of the restaurant.

If you are visiting the National park de la Mauricie.... DON'T MISS IT!!!
