“Plain, Pleasant, Pretty”
Reviewed July 29, 2009

Morutiere is a small restaurant that looks like a waterfront shack from the outside. The inside is fairly plain but pretty in a simple, unfussy way. I was pleased with the fact that they found a table for me, a non-Francophone party of one with no reservation arriving at a fairly busy time. I had a table in a few minutes, and they were quite nice about it.

I had the fish soup and the cod Gaspe style. The fish soup was very hearty and flavorful, served with a piece of garlic bread in the local style. I had no idea going in what "Gaspe style" might mean to the chef, but the cod was poached, with bits of salt pork on the top. The salt pork was not browned too much which would have made the flavor too strong for the mild cod. It was an interesting combination, made better by the fact that the poached cod was quite plain and low on fat, so not overwhelmed by the bits of salt pork. Excellent boiled potatoes and adequate vegetables were served on the side. The restaurant has a couple of fairly inexpensive wines by the half bottle, suiting the solitary visitor.

Service was prompt, especially by the not always good local standards, and pleasant as well.

All in all, a very nice night out at dinner, a shack, but with a view and some fairly plain but good food.

“Perhaps a bad night”
Reviewed July 5, 2009

We were recommended this restaurant by our motel. We walked in through the parking lot -- passed the young chefs having a smoke. I ordered the Table d'Hote and my partner ordered a seafood plate. Here's our take:
-chef salad - mediocre
-soup (potage vegetable) - needed salt and the broth base was weak
-chef's choice for cod -- this was served au gratin with minimal flavouring - I could only taste cream and had to use copious amounts of salt to get some kind of umami
-We ordered a seafood plate that had scallops, salmon and lobster--salmon was not fresh/overcooked and partner thought it was spoiled
-dessert was pretty good -- chocolate cake

Servers are friendly and concerned --- we ate at 8pm -- perhaps the kitchen was tired! --- need to pick up on flavour and cooking technique.

“Excellent seafood restaurant with reasonable rates”
Reviewed February 16, 2009

We usually vacation in Perce on a yearly basis and always make it a point to dine at La Morutiere. There is a wide variety of food on the menu but seafood is their specialty. The restaurant is located at the water's edge and provides a fantastic view of Perce Rock. A must try!
