I usually don't stay in Terrebonne when I'm there for business. I've stayed only once before in vieux/old Terrebonne and recall lots of restaurants and was impressed with restaurant I ate at prior. I rarely find authentic French restaurants and don't frequent them enough when in Quebec, so it was recommended that I go here for dinner.
Since it is vieux/old Terrebonne, most places are converted old houses. It was very apparent that they kept a lot of the older features than other places. We sat inside where it felt very small and tables are very close to each other without any ambient noises. It made it uncomfortable as it was also fairly bright and since all conversations are easily heard, it definitely gave away that I'm an Anglophone
The menu is handwritten and had a lot of authentic choices. I opted for Table d'hote and went for escargot and veal liver. The wine list was simple, but felt over priced in comparison to the food prices which were average. The server was prompt but felt uncomfortable as she only spoke through my guest who was bilingual. That made the service for the entire night feel below average which brought down the rating, which is unfortunate as the food was terrific. We also had a cheese plate which was presented well and the portions of each cheese with it's pairing of nuts and fruits was very complimentary of each other.
Overall, I would come back if I just wanted good food, and would probably look for alternatives where service may be better and/or more comfortable.
