I was at Le Forain, while visiting Gatineau for business, and I was absolutely satisfied with my experience. I sat at the bar and had a delicious carrot coconut soup, as well as the escargots. The bread was awesome and the service was excellent. Will definitely be back when I’m in town again!

The menu offers a variety of original choices. For appetizer, my wife chose the escargots prepared with a buttery, herbal sauce, not the usual heavy garlic base, and it was excellent. I selected the Chorizo de Lisboa: very spicy, outstanding. For main dish we both had the Ali Baba, a merguez and chicken couscous: good but unremarkable and very copious servings.The crême brulée was OK but the bread served with the meal was absolutely excellent. The service was good and efficient. The whimsical decor was quite interesting. On this evening, the restaurant hosted a large party that was quite noisy, which put a damper on our enjoyment of the dinner.

Service was very good and the food was also very nice. It is kind of expensive but it’s OK for a night out.

The best place for brunch.

In the whole of North America, first time I had more than 6 snails in a juicy cheese dish. Soft, juicy snail. Cheese blended into spicy sauce, not dry, not hard, and just enough to cover the pieces. Great sauce!

Very special in the way green onions were used to eliminate smells of seafood. Very Asian (and a lot of Asian do not know this).

The owner was just so attentive and helpful!

Recommended for anyone, from kids to adults!

good food and service, spacious and clean space. Quiet on a Wednesday night. Lots to look around. I had the pizza but it is not a menu item. Very fresh and tasty served with a good size salad.
