Cafe chez Sam saved the day during a drive from Tadoussac to Baie-Sainte-Paul. My niece and I had spent the morning exploring the Tadoussac dunes (a must-see, by the way) and were cold and hungry and very ready for a good meal. We each got...More

We stopped in for a late afternoon lunch. Our server was not helpful, rather rude, and the food was hit & miss on quality and on price. I ordered the seafood chowder, a good choice as it was a flavourful mix of seafood bites and...More

We arrived late, but staff were willing to serve us. English was enough for us to order and understand what we would be getting. Full range of menu items, homemade bread, wine and beer available, etc. Loved the experience.

We stopped here for lunch on the way to a whale watch in Tadoussac in late August, past the peak tourist season. There were very few people around town and no one else in the restaurant at the time. Our host custom-made a beautiful vegetarian...More

Chez sam looks a bit touristy from the outside, with christmas lights and all, but behind that cheapish exterior a fine restaurant is hidden! They do some serious home cooking here. Do try the caserole, with bison and wapiti sausages. Very nice dish! The atmosphere...More
