We were told that the soup here was excellent and indeed it was. We also tried the spaghetti and an almond and cheese panini. Both had big portion sizes for the money and we were very pleased with the taste. Arrive early as it fills up fast for the evening meal.

This restaurant was recommended by the staff at the wonderful Musee des Anciens Canadiens nearby, and we were so glad that they did. We had a delicious lunch. The sandwiches were excellent - especially my grilled cheese and ham, and my husband was very impressed with his olive selection as a side dish. Good taste, and very reasonable.

We were just stopping through as the restaurant is only about 3 km from the 20 highway. They have a great patio or a cute eclectic inside too. First, we are English and the restaurant has both French and English menus. The server also spoke both which was extremely helpful. Second, i have celiac and the restaurant has gluten free... More

We all tried different food and everything was delicious. You can bring your own wine, but we didn't know that you had to pay an extra if you do so... Except this, everything was perfect!

We stopped here for dinner and we chose well. With a baby and two young children, service was fast, they even have some toys and coloring books to distract the kids. Servers were very friendly and quick. The food was good, very tasty. The kids menu could be a bit cheaper and give smaller portions. Overall very good although a... More

We first happened upon La libellule a few years ago when driving to Montreal from Nova Scotia. Saint Jean Port Joli, is a quintessential Quebec town on the shores of the St. Lawrence River, which reminds me of my travels in the the countryside in France. Situated on a square which includes the Town Hall and a Eglise Saint-Jean-Port-Joli .... More

Whether it's a full breakfast, café au lait & croissant, or dinner with your own BYOB from the local liquor store, don't miss this superb little restaurant and bar beside the church and central square. Homemade soups and other delicacies may also be purchased if dinner chez vous is preferred. This concept is eclectic, pleasing and relaxing and offers families,... More

We arrived somewhat tired in St. Jean Port Joli and were sent to La lillbelule by our host at Au Boise Joli. The food was excellent and our burgers were crafted from locally sourced beef. The server was charming and the view of the old church was a lovely addition to this unpretentious spot. We walked down to the marina... More
