During a week in the area, we dined here three times. The ambience is welcoming, service is friendly & professional, the kitchen is great, menu is most interesting and food is attractively served and is delicious! They serve foods 'du terroir', including local wild forest mushrooms & scrumptious seafood. Some evenings, a treat is their jazz trio, playing as you... More

The food was excellent, particularly the red deer filet mignon and the seafood bowl. However, the service was extremely poor, we received our starters before the bottle of wine that we had ordered, we had to ask multiple times for drinks. For the price charged, one would expect a more care and a more helpful service. Overall, the food was... More

My partner did not find anything on the menu as she likes food well done. A pasta was offered as a choice even though it was not on the menu; which meant we could stay and I got to eat deer meat was an excellent choice - it was done to perfection. for a mid October visit reservation was done...

Fantastic food, wine, jazz at a good price.. perfect! Can't recommend highly enough! The seafood curry was the best dish we had since Brooklyn NY ... and that is a big compliment as we have had some sensational meals! Enjoyed the local wine made from Maple sap ... dry and not too sweet!

Very popular place - get a reservation. Menu is interesting. Red deer filet, salmon both excellent. Light jazz begins at 7 - very enjoyable. Service very good, no language problem. Yes,it's expensive.

After spotting beluga at the mouth of the Saguenay fjord and booking a whale watching trip for tomorrow my wife and I had dinner in this restaurant. What a delightful meal we had! The staff was super friendly and the chefs did a wonderful job. Highly recommended when ever on the Route Baleine!!!

Husband and I walked in off the street just having arrived in Tadoussac. Quickly we realized that reservations would be required as the place was full. We decided to wait and reserve for the next night. No one paid attention for a good 10 minutes... or even acknowledged our presence. Why would they? They are slammed full and don't seem... More

We booked a table for dinner and did not mind the 40 minutes wait for our table as it was warm enough to sit outside. However, the service just got worse and worse. Another 45 minutes before we could order even drinks which themselves took an age to come. And then another wait before ordering any food (we only ordered... More
