Incredible place and people. One of the best french fried of my life. The lobster poutine and club sandwich were tasty. The view of the horizon is also something great. Finally the waitress was really kind with us and explain us all the receipe. A must stop in Riviere-du-Loup!

Great place to eat. Stopped in with my Mum while travelling through. My French language skills are limited but our waitress was patient and kind. We received a perfect breakfast, everything was hot and fresh. Coffee was good. Left the biggest tip I've ever left anywhere!

Our order was simple :A Deluxe Lobster Sandwich Club for each of us. Was so good, ok I know it was quite expensive (26.95$ each Deluxe Sandwich) but if you consider that everything was good and fresh, no left over, than it worth it !!!. Home made fries with super yummy lobster. I will go back for sure !

Really nice people welcoming you into a very quaint & rustic, riverside restaurant. They specialize in seafood but have a variety on the menu for everyone. Have a beer and a plate of good food while watching the ferry traffic.

We have traveled this way a few times, and stopped here each spring to enjoy an amazing 'all you can eat mussels' dinner. We asked our server and she said she had never heard of it. We were disappointed to have come this far just for that reason. We ordered surf and turf and seafood platter. Very disappointing, the steak... More

We enjoyed a light supper here while waiting for the ferry to Saint Simeon. The bouillabaisse is really good with lots of seafood. From the wall of windows, you can see the water and tour boats arriving and departing.

We visited here for lunch before taking the ferry to St Simeon, after whale watching in July. We were seated quickly and were able to make our choices easily thanks to an english menu. The food was very reasonably priced and was quite tasty. Our choices went from Lobster rolls, to seafood pizza.

The restaurant is located by the st.lawrence river in riviere du loup and is one of the two places to eat in the area so it was packed. The scallop appetizer and lobster roll were the only authentic foods at our table. The bread was not fresh (it was packaged) and the Sole and shrimp linguini felt like were out... More

It authentic, food is good. Serves breakfast but only in the morning. Fresh seafood. Pricing is a bit high... but location location, location. Right off the whale watching launch. Reservations are accepted.
