My wife and I had a diner for two last week-end, the 3 table d'hôte menus (to be seen on their website) are excellent, and are good for variable budget. The food is tasty, well presented and the service was excellent. Back parking is crowed we had to use a space on a nearby street . Reservation is mandatory during... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel staff and it didn't disappoint. They made a booking for us and as soon as we arrived we were shown to our table and given a drinks menu. Service was excellent, menu was extensive with fixed prices for a la carte and table d'hote menus which both had numerous choices. Food was... More

The ambiance here is wonderful and River views to boot! Duck was the highlight of the night with the filet a very close second. Chicken and pasta was OK. Caesar Salad was OK not great Pate dish was very good. What made the night for all of us was our server Martine! She was a gem and made us all... More

We came here on the basis of the TripAdvisor reviews, which we thought were an accurate reflection of what we experienced: good - although not excellent. There is good food from a reasonably wide menu, which includes seafood. The service was friendly and helpful. The restaurant is spacious, the tables large and although there is a buzz, it is relatively... More

Food was good! Service was great! I recommend the four gras. It was one of the best I've ever had. Wine selection is good.

We read the reviews and were excited to try this restaurant. Our kids enjoyed their grilled chicken. However, my husband and I were disappointed with everything we ordered. The best way to describe the food: mediocre. It's a restaurant that thinks it's sophisticated, but it isn't. So it does well with lots of clients, but if you are looking for... More

Try for a seat in the glassed in area to get a partial view of the bay. Nice fresh bread to start with. Good food. I had the goose liver pate and Asiatic style veal ribs. Very good. The seafood chowder felt a bit too thick for a soup. We also had the ravioli which was surprisingly tasty.

I don't know what was wrong with the AC but several of us requested that they shut if off. The person serving us said 'well you know it's like when you go grocery shopping and you are in the frozen section; you have to dress for it.' Stupidest comment ever. The service was very quick, yes, I will give them... More

Our hosts at Auberge Fleurs de Lune recommended this restaurant for our first evening in La Malbaie. Excellent choice! The prix fixe menu provided a good selection of delicious food at a very reasonable price. The snails and leeks on a pastry shell were well presented and tasty, and the prime rib (specialty of the house) was the best we’ve... More
