Same owner as l Auberge du Dragon Rouge. Maybe that is why my expectations were a bit higher than the final result?
On the positives, the decor and the staff costumes (we attended a pirate night party) are very nice. Also, as in the Auberge, staff is taking its roleplaying very seriously. Of course, as this is mainly a group thing, there is some wait between services but overall I must say that the service was properly conducted, with no very long wait time for anything.
On the neutral, the food. For a meat place, the best thing I got that night was the starter salad, with greens, seeds, ec. Pretty refreshing, and tasty. Not so happy about main courses. My ribs were not of very good quality, and the rest of the plate was nothing to be discussed. Desserts were fine, but nothing more than that. Again, same level as you would get in any "sugar shack". Also, not sure that the mix of Caraibes and Quebec terroir makes any sense.
On the negatives...unfortunatly, the show. Or the absence thereof. The lead singer could not really be heard as his mic volume was too low. A great brochette of characters were presented to us, but really nothing else happened with them. So the only real entertainment was to play blackjack or dices on the overcrowded tables...with fake money of course so...when a bunch of drunks occupy most of the seats, that is not necessarily fun.
Also, maybe riding the pirates wave half-way to nouvelle-france is not the best idea? Mixing Pirates of the Carabeens with Daniel Boone is a long shot in my view. Choose one or the other and stick to your theme, that will make it all more credible for all. And your menu could be more focused.
It is a tough business to provide a show and decent food. Most fail . This is not completly the case here, as the food is OK, the service is great, the decor is fine...but the show is disapointing.
On the good side, there is a solid base for potential improvment!
PS: All the evening we attended was performed in the French langage only, so that might be something to check out before reserving if you do not speak it.
