After a long skiing day, going at C'est la Vie is the perfect thing to do. Take a pierrade, I love the "boeuf" pierrade, which is good. I don't know what they put in their sauces, but they are increadible! Without any pretention, this place shall be recommended to all!

“Great food.”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

If you like meat this is a very good spot. With drinks, tips, and taxes you're looking at $60 per person.

“OH!MY!GOD!!!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We walked into this place because it was the only thing our GPS unit was showing. What a great choice it made for us :)
The service was fantastic, the atmosphere very cozy and romantic at the same time, and the food.....ohhh, the food was to die for! I strongly recommend the bison on hot stone.
Such a unique experience. If I would not be leaving Quebec tomorrow morning, I would defiantly go back there for dinner again!
Do not miss this place! You would not be disappointed.

“A Great Find”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

For our last night on vacation we wanted to find a new and special place.... Little did we know when we pulled up to "the last restaurant in town"..... where no one else had yet arrived.... that this was going to be the great dining experience we did enjoy!!

The lady who runs the place couldn't have been more accommodating. We ordered Chicken on Lava Stones! Never had that before... they bring out 700 degree stones set in board on which you cook your own food! With excellent vegetables.... it was so fun and so delicious.

The water had a great smile - and the owner took really great care of us.

It wasn't until I went inside to pay (we had eaten on the deck) that I realized the place was packed.

Obviously - we were not the only ones who knew that this was an A+ restaurant!!
