After trying to locate the Hotel Tadoussac's restaurant menus online and failing (they get a poor rating for their website) I decided to stop by as it was near the motel I was staying. They have the menus on the reception counter which was nice and I decided on the buffet. I really loved their cold section. They salmon smoked, poached, cured. Another type of smoked fish that was excellent, pâté, shrimp (the small oh so yummy local ones) as well as another type that were so so. They had a beef roast (I won't call it prime) that was sliced for you which was pretty good, the au jus left me wanting the kind I make at home. There a soup that I had a hard time figuring out what it was, I think it was a butternut squash pureed soup, not bad. The sides were the downfall: rice, some pasta that looked too dried out to be desired, some non descript fish in a poor sauce that was so overlooked it was unedible and finally some chicken breast pieces in a BBQ type sauce that was also so overcooked it too was unedible. However, I had filled up so much on the cold offerings and the meat it was okay. There several desserts to choose from but they were not amazing. I tasted a lemon curd (pudding?) and a wedge of lemon tart. I thought it strange to have two lemon offerings, I thought they were vanilla upon choosing. They also had a cheese section which was nice but didn't have room for but was appropriately offered by the desserts for eating post meal as they do in France. All said, dining alone at buffet with 1 glass of lackluster wine with tip totaled $69! That's pretty pricey!!

One of the three restaurants at the Hotel Tadoussac. Reservations are a must. We ordered à la carte instead of the gourmet (and therefore pricey buffet) Food was excellent and tasty.

Ate there a couple of nights ago and all I can say is do not bother. Food is bland, service is dreadful and the air conditioning meant that everyone was moved around all evening trying to find warm spots in the room. There is little that I can recommend it for, especially as it was so over priced for what it was

We don't usually eat dinner at a buffet but we were glad we ate here. Service was very good. The food selection was excellent including extensive salad choices, pate, Prime Rib, and crab legs. Got a carafe of the house red and it was good.

It was nice seeing the hotel as well. We were staying at a nearby B&B. If we get back I would recommend an afternoon drink out on the lawn overlooking the wonderful bay scenery prior to dinner.
