Simply incredible food. The kind of meal where you enjoy every bite and don't want the meal to end. The owners are lovely as well and I already can't wait to go back.

“The best in the Village House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Fantastic food! Great owners and staff! Just the best place to eat in the Gatineau Hills.
Top Tip- Go on Sunday nights for the "small plates".

Thanks so much for the taking the time to add your thoughts. We get a lot of people from the Black Sheep shows coming over to try us out before or after a show. We even designed our Small Plate Sunday menu (6-14$) to accommodate those coming up for the early shows on Sundays. It's a great way to grab a leisure snack, make it a meal or share a bunch amongst friends & family. Hope you can join us again sometime, thanks for the great review!

“Fantastic little spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

We went skiing at Vorlage tonight and looked up restaurants in Wakefield. This one came up #1 and now I see why. We were lucky enough to be seated without a reservation. Quite the interesting little restaurant, it is very comfortable, like you're visiting friends at their rustic home. It's nice to be able to see the kitchen in operation while seated, shows they are not hiding anything. The service was perfect, not rushed and she just seemed to come by right at best time. I agree with a previous review that we only got one piece of awesome bread. My wife and I each had a bowl of soup, I forget what soup it was, but it was fantastic. Then we had the scallops from the small plate section of the menu. Everything looked great on the menu, it entices you to come back and try everything. We were just there for a snack before skiing, next time, we will try the entrees and report back. Our daughter is a chef in training and has introduced us to fine dining and exceptional food. This place has that, everything was perfect, can't wait to come back and try everything ! Keep up the good work !

So glad to hear you enjoyed our "Rustic Charm" that's exactly what we strive to deliver in our food and ambiance. We pride ourselves on friendly efficient service and upscale local comfort dishes. The open kitchen gives our chef's a chance to demonstrates how passionate we are about food. Hope you can join us again soon! thanks for the great review!

“Exquisite food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

On a Sunday night after few hours on the frozen slopes my family of four looked for a place to eat and by miracle or chance we found this cozy and warm restaurant.
It was so hard to decide from the menu of the Small Plates so we order…everything! All ten dishes which we shared between us, plus the all the desserts!
No words can describe the flavoured and tasty dishes and I cannot choose a preferred one; you have to try all of them!
Our tables were in front of the kitchen so we could enjoy the amazing chef’s skills.
Congratulations for this little jewel and also congratulation for the new baby we understood was coming the same night!

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us and future clients. I'm so glad you enjoyed literally everything! It's so nice to hear as owners being away from the restaurant that our wonderful staff can deliver the same great experience. Our baby boy did arrive that night, thank you for the well wishes and hope to see you again on another trip to Wakefield!
