An impromptu supper turned out to be a great discovery in Rivière du Loup. Café L'Innocent is located in the middle of Lafontaine hill. Once in, you can see a simple café. In the middle of the room, two long tables occupy the space. There is a cosy table by the window and benches on either side of the café.... More

The food was very good. Fresh and well prepared. The staff was helpful and friendly. It was a warm evening and we sat outside on the patio. I thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the local flavours.

Had a very nice meal. Service was excellent considering our French is very limited. They were more than willing to help translate. Also a great decor.

An overnight en route to Montreal from Fredricton led us to an unusual and delicious dinner. From the sweet Claudie who served us and explained the menu to the quality of the food, a great experience.

Great host and hostess-nice location-good variety of vegetarian items- however what looked good on paper did not translate as good- all ingredients were piled up in the dish we ordered but did not taste well together

We made a mistake with the address of the restaurant we intended, and ended up here. They were very nice, neighborhood dining. More vegan than my husband liked but the food was good.

We stopped in here for a beer. We got nachos that were much better than the usual Tex-Mex American variety. The food was great, the waiter was great so we decided to stay and have dinner. I had the tofu/veggie crepe that was creatively good, accompanied by grilled veggies on a bed of lettuce with seasoned French fries. My wife's... More

My wife and I had a delightfullly simple but delicious meal. It is always a challenge to get a meal that is pleasing both for a vegan (me) and a meat eater (my wife). We were both pleased with our drinks, a local cider and a local beer (Scotch Ale). She had pork poutine which was generous and flavourful and... More

Thanks for your beautiful comment! We are so glad you enjoyed your time with us! Yes, indeed one of our main cooks is from Tunisia and brought with him a lovely influence! We used to do tagine dinners with lamb, couscous and other yummy things. That's why there are many tagines! It would be our pleasure to see you again... More

Food was good, nothing special. Marinated eggplant tasted like the Italian Marinated Eggplant from the jar with a few added fresh herbs. Main courses, Pasta with Salmon and Pulled Pork w rice were good. Service was good.
