“A gem of a restaurant.”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

My husband and I stayed a night in Charlevoix at a delightful B & B (Maison du Four Bouchard) in Charleboix on Sept 27. We visited a local art gallery at 265 Boul. de Comporte and they recommended this restaurant . It is in a charming old home. The service, quality and food presentation was superb. Highly recommend the short rib boeuf, carpaccio de betteraves, salade quinoa ratatouille and pudding chomeur. Very reasonably priced given the quality. We have travelled world wide and this was the best meal we have had.
Thank you Marie-Michelle for your friendly, efficient service.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 14 September 2013 via mobile

We dined there after a disappointing dinner at the most expensive restaurant in the area. The food was superb with good service at half the price of the dinner the night before.
We highly recommend this restaurant.

“this is my second best in Charlevoix”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

Finally found another excellent restaurant in Charlevoix (after Vices Versa, my first ranking). Beautiful house. Great service by Paul even on a Labor Day weekend with a full house. Great mise-en-bouche from the chef. Entrées are great with many in house home mades such as the rillettes, terrine, confit d'oignons and dried blueberries jam. If you go for the foie gras, get the poêlé (vs torchon), mignon of pork was excellent, perfectly done. The magret of duck was great even if a bit tough (but still acceptable) and the coup de grâce was the pouding chômeur. Bravo chef Truchon. Excellent price quality ratio. Will definitively go back on next trip

“A perfect anniversery night”
Reviewed 2 September 2013 via mobile

We got there early on a Saturday night, we started with amuse Bouche that was greatly appreciated, the main dishes were short beef rib & contre filet that was perfectly cook and seasoned, but most of all Marie- Christina made our night memorable, she wrote Bonne 20 ans anniversery with the blueberry & rasberry pie home made, that us very very nice of her. Thankyou again Marie Chistina & staff, the best resturant, beautiful terrasse & dining room, I recommend it to everyone.
