Tender and juicy ribs with the right amount of sauce. Ever since what was the most famous rib restaurant in Montréal decided to change things and hike up their prices, this little restaurant stepped in and has delighted its clientele with excellent food.

The drive from the city is pleasantly done when you know you’ll always be satisfied .

I make it a point to stop and enjoy dinner at le rio a few times a year! Their food is always consistent and they are so accommodating even with young children! Service and food always A+.

An early evening visit yielded up a decent meal for the family of ribs (recommended and understandable why) and Cesar Salads (large quantity of lettuce, well dressed) and served with a smile. The place filled quickly from 5.30pm indicating it is a popular spot. For the price I thought the meal was descent but not outstanding value for money, but couldn't fault the quality of the ribs. Many thanks.

We arrive shortly before closing time but the waitress was super nice, brought us to a nice table followed by taking our order. Simply the best ribs I have had in awhile! My wife & I will definitely be going back for more!

We've been dining in this town for years and had never tried this one. We did (last night) on the basis of its' #1 rating on TripAdvisor. It was the first & last time we'll go. The rack of ribs was sticky, overly sweet, & molasses-like in texture. The chips were o.k. The house salad was plain & ordinary. The Diet Coke was fine. The service was very slow and we sat for 10 minutes before anyone noticed we had finished. Cost was CDN$85 for two-no apps, no dessert, no coffee. There are many better places to eat in town for the same money.

Thank you for your review . I'm sorry the ribs were not to your liking . It' s very rare we receive complaints about our recipe but like you said it was a little too sweet for your palate.I do apologize for the service . Hope you give us another try.
