“Wonderful evening”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

Off for a quick ski trip - always longing for a new place to try in the evening. This place comes highly recommended and indeed it should be. The staff people are great - make you feel at home and are genuinely concerned that you have a good experience with them. The food is interesting and beautifully prepared (try the pressed duck - delicious and only a fraction of the cost that you would have to pay in Paris - has to be ordered ahead). The wine pairings were intelligently done. In all a great evening - definitely a place to go back to.

“Overall, an excellent dining experience”
Reviewed 27 January 2012

The food was very good as was the service. It's worth ordering the duck, which comes with an explanation from the chef about the history of the dish. Overall, we had a lovely time and a memorable dinner.

“Wonderful find near Mont Tremblant”
Reviewed 21 January 2012

After two days of skiing and eating at the base of the mountain; it was well worth a 20 minute drive to St Jovite to eat at this wonderful gem of a restaurant. The food was outstanding as was the service, personal attention, ambiance and wine. Thsere were four in hours party; each had the table de hote with a different entree and each was excellent. The owner helped us pick a wine that worked with each entree and the chef came out to check on our satisfaction with the meal. We ended with amazing desserts and a final treat of warm spiced cider and white chocolate coconut truffles. Incredible!

“Finest dining experience in Mont Tremblant”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

We decided to dine at Le Cheval de Jade on the last night of our snowboard trip in Mont Tremblant. It's located in the village of Saint Jovite which is about a 30 minute public bus ride from the mountain resort. Our decision was based on tripadvisor's top ranking for this restaurant and the positive reviews by its members. It was a little pricier than other restaurants we went to during our trip, but we decided to treat ourselves since it's the first time for most of us to Mont Tremblant...and we thought it was well worth it.

The first thing I noticed upon entering was how warmly we were greeted by the chef/owner's wife and staff. It was to be the prelude to the wonderful service we received throughout the meal. The menu includes 3 tasting menus which are very reasonable, especially compared with Manhattan restaurants in NY that I am used to. My nephew and I ordered the "discovery" tasting menu which started with the seared duck foie gras which I wanted to try and the main was venison which he wanted to try. Having experienced many tasting menus in the past, I found the chef's discovery menu to be very well planned and each course to be very well prepared and delicious. My 21 year old nephew reflected after the meal "I normally eat to survive but I really enjoyed his food". One friend tried the foie gras and proclaimed it his favorite dish of the entire trip and we had some good meals. I am surprised to find this higher caliber of a restaurant in such a relatively small city.

Prior to receiving our mains we were also pleasantly surprised when the Chef Tali was introduced to us and he invited us to watch him prepare the tiger prawn dish that one of us had ordered. Despite a full restaurant, Chef graciously talked us through the entire process as he made the dish. We were impressed with the care and skill with which he put together this delicate dish.

I would highly recommend Le Cheval du Jade to anyone seeking a great dining and culinary experience. Thank you very much Chef Tali, Madelle Pironneau and staff.
