My husband and 10 month old son were hotel guests and we decided to have dinner in the restaurant as we'd just endured a 9+ hour drive from the GTA. It should be noted that the other food option Terrasse 171, is not open to children, however you can still order from their menu in La Griffe. I had a... More

We were hotel guests who had delicious chicken Caesar salads on the bar terrace. The service was excellent. The next morning we had breakfast in the restaurant and it was very good as was the service. No complàints here.

This is the restaurant of the Best Western Hotel. It is out of the center so its elegant and large dining room will host mainly the hotel’s guests. The internal décor is simple and modern: a large and elegant dining room in the same style of the modern hotel. The cuisine has a choice of dishes which are very well... More

My family and I enjoyed our dinner here. The appetizers were both visually appealing and delicious. The dinner portions were generous - not what we expected for a french restaurant. The prime rib and lamb shank were cooked consistently despite their large size. Children's menu was however typical and we would not be ordering from that next time.

We were staying across the road in the Quality Inn which didn't have a restaurant so we're delighted when we found this gem. The waiting staff were very good and engaged in conversation easily. The food was very excellent, being very well cooked and presented. We had the Steak and Frites and the Salad Nicoise with the tuna being cooked... More

We stayed for one night at the Hotel Levesque en route from Gaspesie to Montreal. We had read some good reviews of La Griffe so we thought we would eat there instead of going into town. The menu, in French and English, looked interesting. The restaurant staff didn't speak English, but I can remember enough schoolboy French to order a... More

Staying at the hotel, I was glad to know there was a restaurant in the premisces. I went there the first night, the young lady at the bar didn't acknowledge my presence for about 10 min, then came back to me after about another 10 minutes. I saw how promptly she greeted some other customers, and that about 3 or... More
