Le Gabriel is a large establishment in a small community, with a small dining-room restaurant at the front leading to a larger pub-style entertainment area with a stage. The barman/server seemed very curt and rushed at first, until we realised that he was working alone! As more staff appeared he was calmer and friendly. And boy did it get busier.... More

We were looking for a local meal before heading into the park and found a decent one here. It is not going to exceed expectations, as it is mostly a roadhouse style restaurant, but the fried clams were about all that we needed to keep going. Service was pretty fast.

We had dinner, there was a band playing and the food was excellent. The service was very good too. I had lobster and it was perfect. The prices are ok too so I do recommend if you are in the area.

We had lunch here and it was ok, although did not live up to the recommendation we received. The restaurant was busy, but there were plenty of open tables and wait staff were quite slow (and not friendly). (It took a looong time to receive our bill and then another long wait to pay our bill.) The menu didn't have... More

Decent food, HUGE bar area with live music, pool, and cheap drinks. We were there just before the busy season, so it was pretty slow, which was nice. There aren't a ton of restaurant options in cheticamp, but you would do well to eat here.

While it was incredibly busy the night my family and I ate here the service was pretty average and the food took almost an hour to come out. It did taste very good but unfortunately this was not quite enough to salvage the night.

We had a nice lunch in a bar setting, food was good and the service good. The bar was nicely decorated with sports stuff and there was a pool tournament going on, that provided entertainment.

We chose to eat in the "pub," not the dining room, because we wanted to see and listen to the local musicians who were playing that night. We were not disappointed in either! What a treat!

This is a great bar with sports memorabilia and live entertainment. We sat in the bar area rather than the dining room and enjoyed chatting with a gentleman from Germany visiting the area on a salmon fishing trip. There was a special two steak dinners for a set price. The steak was so flavorful and tender, and our waitress was... More

This restaurant is worth driving to. The food was fantastic , the service above great. We went there with our two young grandsons, son and daughter-in-law. The six of us were served quickly. On the way out the boys were aloud to pick a toy from the treasure chest. It was a great experience.
