If you are looking for a lunch place in Wakefield, QC, why not try 'le Hibou' right at the heart of the village. Located in the same building as the Pipolinka bakery, they have plenty of parking behind the building. We enjoyed fish and chips and the onion sprouts were a great addition to the flavour. One of the best... More

Super creative international comfort food (butter chicken Poutine and fully-loaded nachos with smoked salsa the stars) in an upscale-garage-sale-sourced decor. Cocktails outstanding and generous. Attentive service. Will definitely go back next time we're in town.

If nothing else, go here for the Breakfast Poutine. Fries with hollondaise sauce, cheese and an egg on top! So good!

I have been to Le hibou several times since its opening in 2009 and always like it but the last three times have been....FANTASTIC experience. Le hibou really got a "tastelift" and each dish brings its very own palette of flavours. Yum, from the risotto to the pork belly, and the tandoori shrimps to the English dinner, it'seems like the...

My partner and I have been here multiple times. It is open, spacious, quirky, welcoming and comfortable with great food. I especially like the craft beer (Boreale Rousse) they carry. I had the beet and bean burger with goat cheese on a lovely bun with a sesame hit of dressing in the green salad. The portion was perfect and delicious.... More

Le Hibou is a small restaurant/coffeeshop with good quality food and reasonable price. I particularly suggest you try the fish tacos for starter! What makes it different (and quite enjoyable) though is the furniture and decoration that create a very lovely ambience. It has an eclectic design with tables, chairs, and sofas of various styles tastefully combined.

Le Hibou is amazing. There were four of us and we all tried something different off the menu and all meals were exceptional. The burger is beyond fantastic. I personally had the fish tacos....super yummy. The nachos were great as well as the soup of the day. The Caesar's were excellent as well. The service was friendly, fast and excellent.... More

Fun place, nice staff. The leak ginger soup was unbelievable! Definitely order it. The smokey nachos were also very good although we ran out of toppings before running out of chips.

Wonderful place to sit on patio with a drink and plate of nachos on a cool but sunny fall day! Service was fast and friendly despite it being quite busy. The prices were reasonable
