Incredibly tasty food
That sums it up for us! We were a party of three who ate at this restaurant on Saturday, October 20 (for the first time). From the moment we walked in, we knew it was going to be good; the decor is very relaxing, very "old world charm" feeling. The location is perfect (right across the road from the Gatineau River) and must be beautiful in the summer when you can sit outside on the patios. However, it was October and we sat inside at the ground floor part of the restaurant which was perfect for us (I think there were about 7 or 8 tables total) which meant a low noise level, ideal for conversation. Dominique was our waitress (a total professional) and she was pleasant, helpful and really good at what she does. The French onion soup was pronounced as "delicious", the Ceasar salad was wonderful and the three steaks were melt in your mouth good! The frites maison (ordered by all three of us) were the best we had tasted in a long time but way too much for us to eat! All in all a memorable meal and pronounced by my father, who is visiting from England, as the highlight of his visit!
We had a chance to watch the master griller cooking steaks (what an artist), and Mr. Ahmed Belharakat took us on a tour of the restaurant, including their wine cellar (oh my, do they have a wide selection). This has now become our favourite restaurant and we will definitely return.
