My husband and I have been going to this amazing restaurant for last 8 years as we head to La Malbaie every year for 8 days snowmobiling n now our friends join us on our trip !!!! Last year my husband and I went with...another couple n they also truly enjoyed Chez Truchon multiple nights !!!! Our favorite server for last 8 years is Michel as he speaks fluid English and French !!! He is very attentive, friendly and always wanting to make sure everything is up to par with his customers !!! The food selections are great n we usually do the 4 course dinner that’s $89 Canadian which is like $66 US which is awesome !!! My favorite entre was the duck n my husband like the steak, our friends had fish n loved it !!! One of our friends is dairy free n they will ensure that whatever she orders is dairy free!!! Like I said, we ate there 3x in 8 days n sorry we ate at Allegra as the wine pours n glassware much better at Chez Truchon n service way better at Chez Truchon!!!! We miss u already Michel n this #1 restaurant in La Malbaie!!! Can’t wait for next Feb n travel 9 hours to dine here from NH!!!More

Had tasting menu and just loved it. Michelle our server was fantastic and so was the food as I mentioned before. Fairly priced wine list. Tried a Canadian Pinot Noir at a very reasonable price and liked it. Desserts were great as well.

Setting was perfect, old house renovated. Service was perfect, very personalized and friendly. Now the food was simply wonderful from start to finish. We took the Table d'Hote with 4 services and it was simply exquisite. The mix of the flavors and the way it...is presented is well worth the price. This is comparable to fine dining anywhere I have been. 5 stars from start to finish.More

What a fine dinner in a lovely setting served by Francois. I opted for the La Table d'hote (if two ordered , it would be difficult to finish if you don't both have big appetites). My husband ordered an entre a la carte, veal filet...special and I had ravioli de veau, onion soup, palate refresher with rum, halibut and a lovely dessert. This was an exquisite meal so well paced. I highly recommend.More

This is a little gem in the wonderful little village of La Malbaie, Quebec. My wife and I have traveled to La Malbaie several times in the last few years. It is our fall golf trip. In prior years we stayed at the Fairmont Le...Manoir Richelieu. However we have dined at Chez Truchon but never made In reservations soon enough to stay there. This year we planned ahead. It is an impeccably clean inn with modern rooms and wonderful personnel. The best part however, is the dining. Starting with wonderful Canadian breakfast offerings and ending with superb French style evening dining. For us, there is no need to look further for our fall accommodations.More

This restaurant is part of Chez Truchon and is exceptional and obviously very popular .It is not fine dining like Vice Versa in centre of La Malbaie but it is high quality use of local products created with simplicity.However it is a formal dining room...with sumptuous chairs and linen tablecloth.We chose a la carte rather than CAN$76 four course tasting menu.The ombre chevalier and halibut soup was obviously freshly prepared and delicious.Halibut is on a level par with turbot in terms of ‘champagne of fish’ and is in season in October so we were fortunate. Our principal course was one for our record books - a venison chop from the region - tender and flavoursome.We forsook the dessert as we have discovered in Canada many of the desserts are extremely rich and caloric with their use of caramel maple syrup and honey and thus unappealing as was the case here but we do not include the dessert in our critique of restaurant as the dishes we had were outstanding We want to give a special thanks to Francois who was assigned to our table - he was engaging passionate and explained in detail the various dishes which allowed us the make an informed choice.More

We had breakfast twice and dinner once. The dining rooms were very different. We had breakfasts in the old part of the house. The decor was dark wood, large windows, beautiful draperies, an old fireplace, and wonderful paintings on the walls. Very old world charm....The food was delicious. We had omelettes with local ham and cheese which came with a baguette and homemade jam. Another day, French toast and granola with yogurt. All came with local fruit. When we returned for dinner we were seated in a very modern part of the restaurant. It was a direct contrast to the front breakfast area. But very nice with large windows looking out onto the lawn. We had beef tenderloin with mushrooms and French Fries which was delicious. They use local products so everything is fresh. We highly recommend this restaurant.More

On our recent visit to La Malbaie, we were in search of places to eat that had an outside dining option. We found it at Chez Truchon. We had three dinners and breakfasts on their terrace during our stay in the area. From the halibut...to the duck to the venison, each dinner was as good as the last. The wine list was extensive. We fell in love with the butter and maple syrup cake for dessert. As for the breakfasts, we tried the French toast, the eggs, the yogurt and granola. The service was impeccable, despite the labor shortage. When we're back in the area, we will definitely visit Chez Truchon again for another delightful meal.More
