My wife and I along with some friends had an opportunity to try out this great attraction/ restaurant. And what a great experience it was.
First, Richard (owner) is there to greet you and make sure you find a parking spot. Then, chose your package (canoe or kayak, 2 or single) and the length of your kayak ride- we had 4 single kayaks. We were given clear instructions on what to look for and off we went. The scenery along the river is nice and it's a very easy ride. Nice smooth current to get you going and lots of rest sand bars along the way. It was spectacular to hear the water and spend the morning cruising down the river.
Richard met us at the designated pick up point, loaded our kayaks onto the trailer and we were given a leisurely ride back to the Cafe. Before leaving, our kayak experience gave us a little appetite so we stopped off at the Cafe. They have a great outdoor deck overlooking the river. The service was cordial and swift. The menu choices are plentiful and varied. Contrary to some comments I have read below, the portions are sufficient. No one at our table had any issues. What was fun to see was the getting away from french fries and offering a great vegetable dip and accompanying salad - a great healthy choice after a physical activity. I ordered a club sandwich on ciabatta bread and my friends ordered veggie burgers ("it has some great zest") while another ordered a home made pizza with great toppings including broccoli!
Overall the people from top to bottom were terrific and very pleasant. I would recommend this as a great morning or afternoon activity that is affordable and out of the ordinary. Friends and family are sure to enjoy this little gem near Mont Tremblant.
