We stumbled on this place by accident. Called in for lunch and had Cheese crepe with sausages and real maple syrup. Delicious and inexpensive lunch. They served a great Cab. Sauv. called the Show.

Good if you order the Pub Fare. Not very good if you stray. Sat outdoors but the sun was still too strong in the early evening. There was A/C indoors. Big mistake as the flies were diving into our meal as well. Tried to order...More

A popular place for locals. The food was very good overall. Portions are very large so you may consider sharing a main. Service was great. Avoid the pizza. It is not good at all; it’s basically flat bread with terrible sauce and toppings.

We had dinner at this restaurant in the heart of Riviere du Loup! The meal was very good and reasonably priced. The menu's burger specials are great and the service is good too! I'd recommend this restaurant over any of the chains.

We were here a year ago on our way to the east coast. We really enjoyed it then so thought why take a chance somewhere else. We were not disappointed. Wine and beer $5 between 5-7pm. Half price wings. Delicious. Small wings but fabulous sauce...More

I ordered the coco soup. When it came with four different utensils I smiled. Priced at $19, it eats like a meal. More veggies than broth kinda meal. Also ordered at our table was their “basic” hamburger meal. Also well done.

Oredered 2 main courses, 2 beers and 1 glass of wine, 2 desserts for dinner. Hasty staff, little accurated in the service. We waited to be served from the start to the bill (the server clearly asking for the tip at the end). Focus on...More

It was our second time here, while staying overnight in RDL. Good burgers and fries, with hipster presentation on slabs of slate. Really impressive list of local microbeers. Prices were not cheap, but neither are they crazy for what you get. Ambience is LOUD, with...More
