We just had the 4 course menu. The service was polite but the food was pretty bad. Bread was good, first course a salad of sorts was so tough to eat and no flavor! I felt like I was eating plastic grass. Second course soup was ok filled with seeds chewy again tough to eat. Third course was fish it... More

Service was good but the food was either almost cold/tepid or inedible. The meat was so tough I couldn't cut it with a very sharp steak knife. Sauces were almost flavorless. I come from a very food and drink oriented area of the US (SF Bay area) and this was one of the worst meals I have eaten. The corn... More

We visited on a quiet Tuesday night which might explain why the atmosphere felt a little dull, with so many empty seats. Regardless, the decor was harmonious an everything, including the music, was in sync with the First Nation heritage of our hosts. We enjoyed the discovery menu with wine pairings and had the pleasure to discover ingredients that were... More

Food... 5 stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. They serve native dishes: bison, deer, seal, duck etc. The bread is unique so is the soup. I would like to compliment the service. The restaurant closes at 8:30 pm the night we check in. We went in at 8:50 pm hoping for drinks and may be appetizers from the bar! It turned out to be a... More

When we heard the restaurant served traditional dishes we had no way of knowing that the presentation would be so elegant. For lunch we ordered a cheese plate and a fish plate to share. We had to take pictures of the food when it was brought since it looked like it came from a foodie magazine. More importantly it was... More

I went mid-September 2016. Service: 4 stars. Nice and adequate. The waiter's attention was focused more on a table that ordered several bottles of wine. Food: 3 stars. There are some more exotic items. Some items I tasted included seal terrine, partridge, deer, and watipi (elk). The use of spices seal terrain and partridge was masterful. The complexity in aroma...

Excellent sublime cuisine! Best scallops I have ever eaten. Very good wine list. One of the best restaurants I have been to in the Québec city area.

It is a very nice restaurant in the Wendake Premiere Nations Hotel. It offers sophisticated dishes prepared with local products (for some very exotic like grilled wapiti). During the dinner there is a show performed by Hurons, which is a very interesting experience, as it creates a special atmosphere but it’s not disturbing.

Very good. Native Indian inspired, but more of a fusion style. Lots of local ingredients. Well suited to the whole family. 4-, 5-, and 6-service meals available. Avoid the kids menu though. The kids can have the a-la-carte stuff.

Thank Jeffrey R
