Chef Gabriel Molleur-Langevin, able to creatively reinvent his culinary roots, makes sure the Champlain offers its guests an unparalleled sensory experience, paying tribute to Quebec’s best local products. The restaurant’s timeless and welcoming atmosphere, blending historical charm with a modern touch, gives its superb oak dining room a special feeling, inviting you to savour each moment.
