“Good find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

We checked Tripadvisor at a local tourist info centre, and it listed this as the #1 restaurant in the region. We were a bit unsure based on the outside, it didn't look all that special. However, it was busy inside, but the service was good and we were pleased with our lunch. They had a buffet with a fair variety and tasty choices. We tried local beers with the meal, they were great. Had a little stroll along the walkway across from the restaurant afterwards. Glad we went with reviewers' advice on this restaurant :)

“Outstanding food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

After having had several great meals during our three-day trip to the Saguenay, we wanted to try a more rustic location and settled on this restaurant based on reviews on TripAdvisor. Hard to believe, but this restaurant was the best meal we had in the region and exceeded all expectations. The restaurant is part of a "gite" with typical wooden interior--very simple but tastefully decorated. The menu includes traditional French meals specializing in terroir. I started with an unbelievable duck tartare followed by poached cod with an amazing cream sauce and fresh asparagus. Dessert included a "trilogie" of three small but delicious desserts-- I had espuma of blueberries, a frozen strawberry "daiquiri" and a lovely glass of white chocolate mousse. The presentation of all dishes was absolutely top notch, and service very good. Prices reasonable for the quality. If I were staying longer I'd definitely be back. Don't miss this gem if you are spending time in the Saguenay!

“Truly good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

This was a total surprise. It was next door to our hotel and so we wanted to get a bit further away but since everything else was closed we were kind of forced to choose it. It certainly wasn't mischance because all we had to eat was excellent. If you are into a fusionkindofstyle cuisine this is the place to go and we especially liked their idea of dessert were they give you a choice of 3 to taste together
