Yes this is a buffet style restaurant and not for everyone but we really enjoyed it. The only place we ate at in Quebec that played traditional music. The view from the windows is spectacular and we had a beautiful sunny day. We arrived just at the restaurant opened at 5pm so were the first people there for dinner. We... More

Their buffet is a mixture of homemade traditional Quebecois dishes and regular dishes, but not many to choose from. Large windows for a great view of the bay and surrounding hills. Friendly staff. Very well-priced for the quality for the food you get, especially in a buffet.

If you're looking for a big buffet this is not the place for you, its simple yet very tastful. Everything is made in house and is fresh. Kids eat for half the price.

This is a buffet style restaurant only. Choices are good but very limited if you have dietary restrictions. Staff is nice and welcoming. Unfortunately the buffet room is very small and does not allow for a crowd to be there. Nice fish soup!

Tadoussac has very expensive food options. For a family, this was a good value at lunch. The restaurant is a buffet and children are discounted. The food was homemade and tasty, but may not appeal to children. My son ate mostly spaghetti, but my husband enjoyed the homemade stew. I loved the pies. Service was very good.

Went there for dinner as I had heard they were offering a buffet. There is a terrasse where you can sit outside and enjoy the view, or a big space indoors. A lot of food options on offer for the dinner buffet, such as salads, soups, meat pie, salmon pie, pizza, fries, vegetables, and a few options for dessert too,... More

Good 'homey' food - spaghetti, pizza, tourtiere, pea soup, etc. Sugar or blueberry pie for dessert - nice!

Self Service with good plain food, we were lucky to arrive before a coach trip as this packed the place.
