Pub grub, fine dining and the best of bistro

At the entrance of the magnificent Gatineau Park, just 15 minutes from downtown Ottawa, the very welcoming Chelsea Pub is ideal for delicious comfort food classics, succulent snack and a wide selection of craft beers, including the Blanche de Chelsea on tap. The casual atmosphere and excellent value make it the perfect place to share a bite with family or friends.

To combine nature and flavours in a romantic setting, there's nothing like a stopover in Mont-Tremblant at Altitude Seafood & grill – Lounge, where the warm urban style and surf and turf specialties will charm you as much as the superb view of the mountain. This trendy chic restaurant will also surprise you with the presentation of its dishes: true works of art that showcase the chef's creativity!

Heading over to Old Québec City, Le Sam Bistro highlights the latest culinary trends and welcomes you in a cozy atmosphere at Fairmont Le Château Frontenac. Enjoy the creative spin on bistro dishes and witness the amazing, talented mixologists who will introduce you to incredible cocktails. In addition, impeccable service and a splendid view of the river are the perfect complement to a delicious meal.

In La Malbaie, an experience unlike any other awaits you at La Maison du Bootlegger, a former speakeasy from the prohibition era. Open on weekends and holidays, this very original steak house offers a guided tour that will lead you to secret doors and hidden bars, all connected by the narrow halls of a surprising maze, followed by a succulent meal cooked on the charcoal grill.

For craft beer enthusiasts

Visiting the charming village of Saint-Jean-Port-Joli is a wonderful opportunity to discover the Ras L'Bock Microbrewery, located across from the wharf. At any given time, 13 beers are available on tap, many of which vary seasonally, as well as a fine selection of imported beers, unique to Saint-Jean-Port-Joli. The original and warm decor and the view of the river and magnificent sunsets make it a place you won’t want to miss in the region.

If you are visiting the Montérégie region, take the time to sit down at the BilPub, boasting a varied menu and a wide selection of beers brewed on site. You'll even have the chance to taste some of exclusive brews since the pub also serves as a laboratory for the brewers to develop new recipes. Located in the heart of downtown Saint-Hyacinthe, this friendly neighbourhood pub has quickly made a name for itself with its high-quality beers.
