We had one of the best meals of our trip at Le Patriarche! The restaurant is really cute, in a little 19th century house right near the water (with beautiful views of the river!). You have to reserve because it's a small kitchen and they...More

If I could give this restaurant 6 stars I would! Absolutely amazing food. They stagger the reservations so that the kitchen is never overwhelmed and service divine. I had the smoked lamb consommé with truffled ravioli as my starter and I'm still dreaming about it....More

We arrived at the restaurant and found that it was small but quaint. The food overall was very good but the service was lacking in professionalism and competency. The waitress got a portion of our order wrong but the chef refused to acknowledge the error...More

Very attentive service and intimate setting. Beautiful presentation. Picturesque location by the water. Overall a lovely meal. As a side note, I would recommend getting rid of plastic table covers.

Description
LE PATRIARCHE vous accueille dans son humble demeure érigée en 1860. Bien campée face au fleuve, cette petite maison transformée en restaurant vous charmera par son cachet hors du commun et son ambiance aux allures d'un passé pas si lointain. Les portraits de l'innombrable descendance du Patriarche qui jonchent les murs vous surveilleront du coin de l'oeil. N'oublions pas les bribes d'histoire par-ci, par-là sur Pointe-au-Pic et son quai. De quoi satisfaire les plus curieux!LA CUISINE, aussi appétissante à la vue que savoureuse, transformera à jamais votre vision de ce qu'est une bonne bouffe: une cuisine épatante proprement dit! Vous trouverez les portions généreuses, mais sans trop. Vous devrez choisir entre de délicieuses viandes mijotées ou fumées, marinées ou confites. Ah! Comment passer à côté des envoûtants fruits de mer, des pâtes ou des plats végétariens?LE SERVICE, assuré par des serveurs au "look" des bistros d'antan vous séduira par sa courtoisie et son dynamisme contagieux. Maintes petites attentions que vous ne retrouverez pas ailleurs vous surprendront à tout coup. C'est à vous de leur dire si vous préférez la petite "pièce du fond", la pièce du poêle à bois ou la terrasse avec sa magnifique vue sur le fleuve.LE CHEF ne pourra rien vous cacher. La petite pièce du fond, qui lui sert de cuisine, laisse doucement s'échapper des arômes qui vous feront saliver de plaisir. Cela est sans compter ses histoires, commentaires, sifflements érudits et fredonnements inédits qui se rendront jusqu'à vos oreilles! Il est à noter que le chef est très "papa gâteau" avec ses clients. À suivre!...
