The dinner was scrumptious. The price was reasonable. Food quality was good. Huge plate highly recommended. Service was excellent. We did not make reservation, they would squeeze us in. Perfect! They open 7 days a week, between 11 am and 9 pm, between May 31...and Sept 25 seasonal business. If you are around during this time, must try.More

Amazing view and delicious seafood! Great place to stop by on the way to Gaspé! If you are a seafood lover you definitely have to check this place out. Very big portions and very fresh!

This restaurant is frequented by the locals as well as tourists. The food is mostly fresh fish and seafood and is very well prepared and in large portions. The pricing is very reasonable. The service is very good! We will certainly come back if in...the area.More

I wanted to try this place for my birthday this year. It was NOT as I expected or what people made it out to be. Most places, when it's your birthday, they give you a desert. My husband asked and they said they don't do...it. I ordered scallops because the rest of the food was mostly shrimp and other stuff. I thought I would have lobster but I am from NS so no need to pay these prices for something I get free. I was not impressed at all by the taste or experience and will not be returning and I found $27.00 for 9 scallops was a bit much!! I'll take myself to NS when I want free lobsters and scallops fresh from the oceanMore

Lovely service, good seafood at a very fair price. Noisy family affair wouldn’t plan a romantic dinner. Would go back - not mention very few restos in area.

Good seafood and attentive service! It's a bit noisy but that's because it's popular. You need to make a reservation! Tarte au Sucre is a really simple thing to make but... I don't know how they do it... it's the best I've ever had anywhere!...Pudding Chomeur... so good!More

I have been here half a dozen times over the last decade and I have never been disappointed. Even still, I was a little nervous when we arrived with a party of 9 for an 8:00pm reservation and the restaurant was packed. I should not...have been. True, layout is quite open which lends itself to being quite noisy when the restaurant is busy, but the service was incredible despite a large group in a full restaurant at the end of the night. Everyone’s seafood was cooked perfectly and the children’s menu offered some more sophisticated choices. I would recommend sticking to the seafood, though the fries are great, the chicken and steak were both a little tough.More

Wooow, this the stop in Gaspesie to eat delicious seafood. Incredible lobster and crab. Quick and friendly service. Great Pit Caribou beer too. A really good stop. Try it now!
