Gourmet bistro cuisine with an relaxed but refined ambiance. 5 Diamond Chef Stephane Roth insists on very fresh , locally sourced ingredients in his menu. Signature dishes include: succulent organic chicken from Charlevoix which is slightly smoked and rotisserie-cooked, smoked guinea fowl, organic pulled pork, homemade sausages and tenderloin, delicious vegetarian couscous, organic Quebec cheeses. Everything is made in-house, from the organic spelt buns to the sauces, mayonnaise, ketchup and desserts. The famous creme brulee has been written up in national papers. During the summer and harvest seasons, vegetables and herbs grown of the restaurant and hotel's roofs are used in the restaurant's dishes.
