What a lovely and charming restaurant! We loved the decor, especially the carving of les coureurs de bois which reminded us of the history of this beautiful region of Quebec. The amuse bouches and homemade bread led up to a wonderful main course, the seafood...chowder for myself and the beef cheeks for my spouse. Combined with a great selection of wines, this was one of the best restaurants we have visited. We just wish you could open another spot in Montreal!More

It is difficult to add to the many positive previous review of the Tandem in la Malbaie. Everything is perfect: the setting (warm and cozy), the food (outstanding) and the warm and friendly welcome of both Stephan and Benoit. Highly recommended but do not forget...to book ahead of time as this little gem is no longer a well kept secretMore

La Malbaie has a number of terrific restaurants, but this is our new fav! The food is excellent, the service is lovely and the ambiance is cozy and welcoming. We had the French onion soup, seafood chowder, fondue croquet type dish and spaghetti, and all...were amazing, but the French onion soup and seafood chowder were the dishes we most enjoyed. They also do lovely cocktails and have some great wine options. It’s also just a short walk from the Fairmont. We will definitely be back for our next visit!More

We had the pleasure of dining at Resto Tandem during the holidays and all I can say is Wow! We had dined at a few of the other highly regarded local restaurants before we ate here and this place is a whole different level. Every...dish was fantastic and the flavors were amazing. The wine pairings were perfect, the cocktails delicious and the atmosphere was like you were dining with old friends. I just wish it was closer to where we live. The proprietors were welcoming, interested in their guests and committed to making sure things were perfect. If you are visiting this area, do not miss out on one of the best meals of your life - I promise you, you will not be disappointed.More

My wife and I couldn’t have had a better dining experience. The owners are extremely welcoming. The atmosphere is the epitome of cozy — fireplace blazing with quaint design touches throughout. The food — mon dieu! So great. We shared the escargots and they were...the best I’ve ever tasted. Perfect balance of garlic, white wine, butter topped with caramelized local cheese. I got the beef cheeks with gnocchi and veggies. This was the tastiest main dish I’ve had in a long time. The meat falls apart with a fork and is packed with flavor. The blueberry cedar sauce was so good and the gnocchi hanging out underneath it all were almost a little chewy in a great way. Do yourself a favor and order the beef cheeks. My wife got the sausages on apple compote and fries. The sausages were better than I would have expected. Great flavors and atmosphere. Just go here!!!More

Stefan & Benoit have created the most beautiful atmosphere at Resto Tandem. The decor makes you feel happy and warm on a cold winter night. The wine selection was perfect. The escargots were to die for, with a slight sweet flavour. I’ve never had anything...like it. L’amuse bouche - nice touch and very tasty. The meal, I had beef cheek and my partner had the Spag Tandem, with lamb meatballs. Both dishes were spectacular! The beef cheek was so tender, you didn’t need a knife to cut it…melt in your mouth. The dessert, chocolate lava cake, had an incredible texture and the flavour was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. It was $200 well spent! Can’t wait to go back.More

Reserved this resto based on previous reviews and we were not disappointed. From the moment I called for the reservation the service and warmth of the owners was apparent. The food was absolutely delicious and having the chef stop by to see how we enjoyed...our meal was a really nice touch. We both had the seafood chowder. The seafood was cooked to perfection, melted in your mouth. I can still taste it! The ambiance is warm and inviting and the service friendly and personal.

Located across from the train station in a house, this small restaurant delivered a warm and welcoming vibe and outstanding service and food. There was an amuse bouche of gingerbread topped with a scallop and hot jelly that was amazing. The lobster Mac and Cheese...was fantastic and my husband had the beef cheek which he loved. Stephane choose a wine to accompany each of our meals that worked perfectly. Benoit, the chef, moved throughout the restaurant making sure everyone was enjoying the meal. We were too full to try dessert but I am guessing it was amazing as well.More
