We recently had dinner at Vices Versa during a winter stay in La Malbaie. The idea of having two different menus to choose from, that use the same base dishes but with a very different treatment from each Chef, makes for a fascinating dinner experience. We recommend choosing at least a couple of dishes from each, and comparing notes. The... More

The setting was very modern, which we loved. It could belong in Toronto's King West. The service was lovely. The food was great. Three courses, each with surprises for the taste buds, very carefully crafted. The amuse bouche were also a happy surprise. We would return many times if we could, but our vacation is over!

My fiancé and I had a wonderful meal. Portions were big and flavorful, and service was very good. One of our best meals during the trip by far. The only thing that would have made this dinner even better would have been to meet the husband and wife duo. We got to experience both styles and their personalities in their... More

What can I say that hasn't been repeated in all the other reviews... Every dish we ordered was amazing. The menu includes an amuse-bouche, 3 courses plus dessert for 65$ per person. This is extremely reasonable considering the quality of the food. Do yourself a favour and eat here!!!

Notre visite chez Vices Versa s'est avérée être une des meilleures expériences culinaires que nous ayons vécu jusqu'à maintenant ! Des plats excessivement savoureux, une ambiance feutrée et agréable, un service empressé et digne des meilleures tables, une excellente suggestion de vin... Nous avons passé une merveilleuse soirée ! Cependant, ce restaurant n'est pas à la portée de toutes les... More

On a trip to the Charlevoix region this summer, we were pleasantly surprised by this small restaurant. As we were not that familiar with La Malbaie, we asked for a recommendation from the local merchants. We were not disappointed! This restaurant is run by a husband and wife team (both chefs). In a new twist (for us, anyway), the menu... More

Preferred Vice Versa to the Patriarche, another great restaurant in La Malbaie, for its innovative cuisine and contemporary setting. The menu format and choices let you experience the array of local ingredients in a relaxed setting.

Vices Versa is an excellent restaurant...we've eaten there on every one of our trips to La Malbaie, and in each case we were "blown away" by the innovativeness of the cuisine. The two husband/wife chefs (vices/versa) are creative, the favors of each of the dishes are fabulous, and the quality is the very best! The wine choices are excellent, and... More

A guide at the Tourist office in La Malbaie said we should not miss this restaurant. She seemed too enthusiastic, and we were sceptical. We ended up going twice in 3 days. The exterior of Vices Versa on rue Saint-Etienne, a main street in this town, has an unusual attractive water cascade in front of their main window. It suggests... More
