The soup was very good and the sandwich combo left me satisfied and willing to return. The service was friendly and the building was worth visiting as well (log cabin base).

The setting is an old log house in Buckingham where simple well prepared and nicely presented food is offered in cosy happy surroundings. This is not classic French cooking but regular fare with a carefully considered twist and delightful mood. Reservations are recommended especially on summer evenings.

My wife and I found this place by pure luck while driving up to our cottage last year. We were hungry and stopped here for a quick meal - we did not have great expectations as all we wanted was something good, fast and filling. We were not expecting a top-of-the line dining experience. We were, to say the least,... More

Small restaurant, very cosy place, good music and a friendly service. They have some musiciens / singners during the week-end at least once a month. Everywhere you look in the restaurant, you could see painting from local artists. During the summer, the

We occasionally go to this restaurant, normally on a Friday night when we want a good, quality meal. We've never been disappointed with either the food or the service. The restaurant is located on the main street in the Buckingham sector of Gatineau. The building is an older log cabin which has been refurbished, and modernized. You can still see... More

Tastes likes Grandma's cooking, right down to the chicken pot pie and the "pouding au chomeur". The log cabin setting and friendly service make it a must.

The food is an important part of the experience here. It is simple, local and very good. The chicken pot pie was perfect in size and taste. The deserts will keep you coming back. Thoughtful presentation and preparation. The rest of the experience comes from sitting in a turn of the century renovated log home, the smells from the kitchen,... More

Buckingham Quebec is not known for its fine dining.... And while this spot is not fancy - the food is hearty and tasty. Good for lunch or a simple supper. It is in a log cabin on the main street.

It's a small rustic type restaurant with no frills but the food...simply fantastic. Everything on the menu is home made, it's their own recipes. Home made chicken pie, quiches, pasta sauces, chili, soups, etc. The prices are very reasonable, sometimes it's better to call for reservations.
