My hosts took us to this charming restaurant in the former train station of Wakefield, Quebec which is located right on the Gatineau River. We sat outside on a lovely Saturday early afternoon. The service was friendly and prompt. I had the Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon which was delicious. My friend liked her omelette. The French Toast was excellent.... More

You might think on the shoulder season they might cut back on the menu, freshness, service ... NOT! Fresh warm bread, a fantastic pesto oil dip (parsley maybe ..?) and all of our dinners, 2X2, were perfect. The wine list suited us very well (wine prices weren't crazy) the service attentive but not intrusive, and most of the tables were... More

The food (especially soup) was great, atmosphere unequalled, service friendly; the view would be to die for if someone snipped the riverside / railside weeds.

Arrived at about 6pm on a Saturday evening without a reservation and were immediately shown a table. Menu is a bit on the carnivore side but still one chicken, fish and vegi selection. Appetizers and entrees were excellent; well presented and very good. Amounts were generous, one of the increasingly rare times one can leave a good restaurant feeling fed.... More

Lovely quaint location by the river in a renovated railway station. gentle background music, linen tablecloths, great service. How perfect. But wait - there's more! The food is out of this world. Every dish was excellent. Here's the kicker: the flavours just keep coming at you in wonderful waves across your palate, one surprise after another. And just when you... More

I had looked forward to our day trip to the Gatineau area & having lunch at the Cafe Pot-Au-Feu in Wakefield. The setting was storybook perfect! The blue & white converted train station was situated along the Gatineau River with hillsides of trees that were a patchwork of green, red, burgundy, yellow, & orange. Not quite in full autumn dress... More

Just a thirty minute drive north of Ottawa lies the village of Wakefield. Despite its small size it has a lot to offer. For one thing this area boasts a thriving art community with the village at its centre. The main road through town hugs the shore of the Gatineau River. It's lined with colorful shops, restaurants and music venues.... More

Went to the Pot au Feu yesterday with a friend and was genuinely impressed with the service and most importantly, the food. The server was on top of her game and never missed a thing. She was very knowledgeable explaining the dishes and offered suggestions. We both had the quiche with salad and both were delicious. Most definitely Worth a... More

We decided to lunch very last minute and the food was exceptional. We had great service and the price was palatable. I happily recommend this restaurant and I will return again ASAP.
