We had a delicious dinner, with selections from both vice and versa. What a great concept, both fun and exquisitely prepared. The wine selections were great. We would return here, for a special occasion, as it is quite expensive. Highly recommend.

What a great find this restaurant was. Wonderful ambience and excellent attentive service. The menu is split in two. The husband and wife chef team present you with the Vice (cooked by him) or Versa (cooked by her) to choose from or you can combo up some from her some from him. The friends we were with all chose different sides but all agreed it was first class food. The wines were fantastic too. Predominantly French with some New Zealand. Disappointed not to find some Canadian wines as we love to try local where possible.

This restaurant is quite expensive but provides real value in food size and quality. You won't be disappointed.

I do not normally write restaurant reviews, but we had such a great time and meal here that I felt I owed it to the chefs. This is a unique experience, as the husband/ wife are both excellent chefs who basically compete for your business each night by creating a menu of choices from each chef. You can mix and match them. My wife made several different choices- all were excellent, both in presentation and quality. Great service. This is a small place, with just outstanding food. You will need a reservation. Make the effort to get to this place.

Simply one of the best restaurants in the province of Québec, and certainly east of Québec city. We are stunned by the experience. Family-run business - they care about your experience.

Menu: Original concept. In the table d'hôte, the two Chefs each offer a selection of five / six meals using the same ingredients but prepared differently based on their own specialty. My partner and I selected the same ingredients, but prepared by both Chefs to compare -- what an experience! They use mostly local ingredients -- and the Charlevoix region has a lot to offer. Good presentation and food and wine pairing.

Service: the lead waitress is one of the Chefs' sister. Attentive and not intrusive service. Mature staff who know the menu inside out.

Atmosphere: Intimate. Appropriate for both couples and friends. Young children may find it difficult to appreciate the menu, but the staff would accommodate.

Tips:
- Book in advance. Opening hours / days varies according to the season.
- Ask to meet the Chefs, if the waitress doesn't propose it already.
- Within a walking distance of most hotels in La Malbaie.

Comparing the husband/wife chef selections on the table de Hote was fun and really creative. Scollops were wondersul as was the veal and duck.

Easy to find and only 7-8 minutes from the Fairmont.

elegant old home, warm servie and a reasonable wine list made for a memeorable evening
