We had a private dinner on the second floor for our wine club group. The food was absolutely spectacular and presently very well.

We like this restaurant because the food is cooked from scratch and not merely reheated. The quality is excellent as is the service, this restaurant would do well in any large city, it's very polished in decor, food and service.

You can "create" your own main course by choosing protein, side dishes, sauces etc., or choose one of the set dishes in this small and adorable country-inn style dining room. Wild wine list, too!

We ate here on a whim while spending a night at local B&B. All of our meals were delicious and people were friendly. Service was extremely slow. We learned during our travels that service at restaurants in Quebec is definitely at a slower pace. Two hours and we didn't order dessert. Just too long with two kids.

Café Massawippi was a few minutes from our B&B who suggested we go there for dinner. We loved it. The food, the service, the wine selection was excellent.

We went to this highly acclaimed farm to table restaurant with high expectations. The first 3 wines we selected were not available. They did not have enough scallops for everyone that ordered the entree. The good was just ok. I would have expected better from an award winning chef. They need to update their wine list and be ready to... More

I love Cafe Massawippi ... It's a real shame the town itself is dieing. The service and food are very top notch. They served us a half bottle of champagne on the house in honor of it being the first week they were open for the season. Love these guys ... And the gnocchi .. Sublime :)
