Went there for a little get away, us and my brother in law and his wife...

We booked our stay to include room, cost 169$ a night, and this included breakfast that was really good, and would have cost 40$ plus else where...so I'm ok with the price but the room is just bizarre, set up to replicate French opulence, but comes across as bad props... Small room, really small bathroom, we had a king bed, and dehumidicator... Kind of musty smelling..

The auberge itself is very old, 1850's ish.. Nice hot tub outside, little river thru property and old chapel converted to boutique. Cool stuff in there

Now for the food!! You have to understand, we love food, and don't mind paying for good and different and this place did not disappoint. (English only people beware... Thats all I'm saying)

We took the 5 course tasting menu, and added a bit to it to make it an event. Started with a raw trout with an orange yogurt, one spoon size. Then an oyster with 2 slices of duck. Then half a lobster tail with a Bouillon, then 2 slices of beef with fois GRAS, and finished with a chocolate dessert that was to die for!! That was the tasting menu, very very small portions or the price! But exceptionally well done. We added a cheese plate and the appetizer fois GRAS from the menu.

Food was exceptional, but the star was the sommelier!! He matched the wine with every course, and did a great job, he was adventurous and didn't play it safe with his pairings! Hats off to him and his pairings!!

Anyway, supper for two was over 500$, thought that was a bit steep for the quantity...

Superb food, beautiful view and excellent accomodation. What more. If you go the Le Bic near Rimouski Québec, make sure you stop for a diner at le "Mange Grenouille". Eat refined food, watch the sunset on the St Lawrence River and sleep with the birds....

Just fabulous,
