Went for a birthday dinner and found that it is greatly over priced for what it is. We waited well over an hour for our soup and two hours for the main course. The children, who did not take the soup and salad, were fed their meals two hours after ordering once the main course was served to all. Potatoes... More

I met at Le saint-eloi with friends for brunch on a Sunday. The place was packed! We waited quite a while but it was pleasant. All the servers were very nice and accommodated our broken French. The brunch selection was great and the food was very good. It's nice to know that you'll get a great selection and they don't... More

Nice location hidden from the street near Lac Leamy, this is a small, unpretentious and friendly restaurant that will not disappoint. Food is very good and staff are welcoming and efficient. The patio is very nice with a view on the lake.

The restaurant was closed for this special event. We were served hor d'oerves and wine. The two wait staff that were there were very professional.

Place is nice, close to the water, great view but the food.. omg.. the food.. same classic breakfast menu like any other place. I have to admit I was hoping for more. I ordered a egg benedict salmon. I pretty much order the same at every restaurant to figure out whether I like the place or not. Well nothing interesting.... More

The cutlery was dirty and the table sticky. My wrap was too salty, and my Gf's panini had raw zucchini in it. The patio ceiling was dirty and full of spider nests. The location is nice and has a lot of potential, they should up their game.

I went there for breakfast with my grandparents and did not disappoint, the food is delicious, the portions are generous so no one goes hungry. The restaurant is near a beautiful walking path and near lake Leamy, so it's great for an after walk. Very recommended!

My eldest son and I flew to Ottawa to attend a 50th Wedding Anniversary get together for my oldest brother and his wife. We had to be there by 5 P.M. as the married couple were arriving at 5:30 P.M. I had not seen my brother since 2007 and this was a surprise for them. There were about 50 people... More

My wife and I had heard about this place from a a friend and decided to try it out. Although it was a hot day, we sat on the outdoor balcony/patio and it was wonderful as there was a nice breeze off the lake (Lemay) and the trees provided some shade. We started with the camembert wrapped in filo pastry... More

We always order the Summum, it has everything you want on one plate for breakfast. It taste good, the portions are great and it's not overpriced. The decor is a bit outdated but it doesn't matter because the food is good. Free parking too.
