My meal was excellent. Service was perfect, all the waiters and waitresses were incredible and polite. My wife's meal was also really good. We enjoyed sitting on the nice porch, the atmosphere was great, and drinks were even better.

If you enjoy the flavour of authentic Mexican cuisine or rather flavour at all then this restaurant is not for you. I never write reviews but this was such a disappointment I just had to share my opinion. I’m a foodie 100% and I was...absolutely shocked to see so many positive reviews. This town is in such a beautiful setting I hope that soon there will be equal quality restaurants.More

In the new shopping area created, I presume, after the 2013 tragedy, it ranks as one of the best in town. Very little decor to define it as texmex, and also limited choices. Portions were large, the trout was good (the fries not so much...and the salad missing any condiment) the chips with salsa also ok. Water was not offered and service was friendly and youngMore

I spend a lot of time travelling which means I eat out quite a bit. Le Cintron Vert was a very nice change from the typical burger and fries type pub fare. The food was good, the staff was friendly and the location was convenient....I would go again the next time I am in the area.More

Lovely mexican restaurant in Lac-Megantic. The food is perfect and the owners are very kind. It is a warm and beautiful place. We had quesadillas and enchiladas and it tasted just like if we were in a mexican family. It looks homemade with all their...love. Thank you!More

Every time I pass in Megantic, I make it a point to stop in Citron Vert as it’s my favorite restaurant in town. The owner and his family are charming and take great care of their customers. Best food in town, get the sizzling plate...and you’ll enjoy plentiful Mexican food :)More

This is not really a Mexican restaurant. It has a few tex Mex dishes though. The Margaritas were good ( we shared the giant one), and the food was tasty albeit not 100 per cent authentically Mexican. Service was lovely and welcoming.

The goods: probably one of the best chicken quesadillas I have tasted since a while. The salads are tasteful. The bads: the nacho supremo is dampy. Too much salsa and chips are melting into a paste. Extra sour cream very expensive at 2.75$. The beverage...are expensive too with a can of coke at 2.35$. The limonade price is justified at 2$More

We stopped there for a very early dinner on our way home from a trip. We shared fajitas. They were amazingly delicious! The service was very fast, although there were very few people at that time. The menu offers a good variety of North American...style Mexican - fajitas, tacos, etc. The food is fresh and much on the menu is from local suppliers. We had a chat with the owner who is from Bosnia. He lost his restaurant in the train tragedy and rebuilt this after 16 months. He's a gentleman with an eager to please his clients. A great experience.More

After hiking Mount Megantic, we were hungry and decided to head to Lac-Megantic rather then head back over the border to Sugarloaf to find a place to eat. The drive was about 30 minutes up the road and we had high hopes of finding a...place to eat in the biggest town in the region. Le Citron Vert immediately got my attention because of it's modern decor and outside seating...little did I know how awful the food would be. We were the only party to sit inside (3), there were (I think) a couple of tables outside but it was early. The service was very slow to get our drinks. When the food came out it was very uninspiring. My husband ordered a hamburger medium rare and it came out well done. It was as thin as a dime. He was joking he was getting dehydrated eating it. The fajitas I ordered were unimpressive. My daughter ordered Poutine, a typically Québécois dish of French fries with cheese curds and brown gravy. It was our first experience eating Poutine and it will be our last because it was horrible. Overall we were disappointed with the food and won't be in a hurry to go back to this region of Canada. It was truly disappointing and over priced!More
