“Taste of Québec country cooking”
Reviewed 5 February 2015

This is a very good restaurant, and you will definitely need a reservation on the weekend. The Tourtiere is special, with crunchy pastry and a moist and tasty interior. The homemade soup is really good, but my dining companions swore by the salads as exquisite - they certainly looked good - and the crème brulée was outstanding. The service is good and the price is reasonable. Oh yes, the restaurant is situated in the old railway station and for extra room, there is a parked railway car - good for foodies and trainspotters.

“excellence!”
Reviewed 27 January 2015

we took some friends who had never been to resto gare before. It was a very busy night just before Christmas so the pace was hopping. Nevertheless, our server was knowledgeable, wonderful, and extremely attentive without being intrusive.
Short ribs are my downfall-but I am very critical of poorly made ones. Resto Gare's bison short ribs are the best i've ever had. Portions are generous and I ate every bit because it was so good. Everyone at the table loved their meals too. Each couple shared a dessert -- the sugar pie is not to be missed.
Beautiful Christmas tree -unique and lovely.
thanks to all

“Splendid”
Reviewed 12 January 2015

Gourmet food at its finest. Can not believe I have never known about this little gem for all the times I have drove by. Service was excellent and server was knowledgeable on menu and provided clear and descriptive explanations to our questions. He was quite friendly and not stuck up like you would expect.

“Love the train car”
Reviewed 9 January 2015

The train car dining added so much to the romantic atmosphere of our evening and made us feel as if we were on a real adventure. The food is very well prepared and very tasty...lots of different items to choose from as well. Would definitely return again as there is always something new to try on the menu. Tres bonne!!!
