I have always wanted to go to Aux Truffes for dinner as it is the only fine dining French restaurant in Tremblant. We went over the Canada Day weekend to give it a shot as the breakfast I had there a number of months ago was really good. We took the table d'hote as it gives you 4 courses for the price of the main. We had an option of soup (Leek and parsley) or a mixed salad. All of us took the soup and sadly it was a pretty sad thing. Doused heavily with white pepper so that is all you could taste and it needed a good pass through a strainer. Next was a choice of lobster and sweet potato ravioli or a parmentier of duck confit. The parmentier was fantastic. Shredded confit with mashed potatoes and melted cheese. What's not to like about that? Unfortunately the ravioli which sounded great was a let down. A large palm sized ravioli that had sweet potato and miniscule bits of lobster that had no lobster flavour at all. Also it almost looked deep fried. Odd.
For the main courses we had stuffed rabbit, filet, and the black cod. All of the mains came with great lentils, spaghetti squash, and sweet potato. The filet was terrific, the rabbit was good, albeit a little on the smaller portion size. The cod was also good except for the 6 large bones that I had to excuse myself from the conversation to get one out of my mouth. Unacceptable for a fine dining restaurant.
To finish it off the entire group had a molten chocolate torte which was good. The service was also good. My last complaint will be the wine list. This has me quite puzzled as it was so basic most bistro's have a better one. I don't think I have ever seen a wine list in a fine dining restaurant so pedestrian. I even asked if they had anything other than the run of the mill wines of maybe 7 whites and 9 reds......they did not. A good Languedoc would be nice! Again I expect better for a fine French restaurant.
All in all the meal was not bad but for the price ( around $300 for two with tax and tip) they definitely need to pull up their socks. A lot of the food related issues should not be here. I will come back, but probably only for breakfast which was very good the first time I visited.
