We had dinner in this busy place. The menu is relatively short but all dishes look superb and we were not disappointed at all. The chef plays with local ingredients and different savours like an artist. The must visit place!

We took time on our way back from the east coast to get off the beaten path and experience a local bistro. The restaurant is very quaint and authentic with a lovely veranda. We started our lunch with the soup of the day (carrot) which was very tasty. I had the grilled cheese sandwich with home frites which I could... More

This was our third visit and we were not disappointed. For supper we had Bavette de boeuf aux 3 poivres and parmentier de confit de canard.We also purchased Pacanes au sirop d’érable & épices chaï. There is seating indoors and outdoors (weather permitting!). Reservations are a must.

First of all get a table on the porch and you can see the church and the St. Lawrence River. Then enjoy one of the most creative meals you will ever have at a reasonable price. Get the Duck with a combination of sweet potato and mashed potatoes and sides of several seasonal vegetables--all combined with some spices. Outstanding! Entrees... More

We stopped for Lunch at La Salicorne with friends. We choose the table on the terrace with great view on the river. Food was very good and service was fast and friendly. Everything was super fresh and portions were just the right size. They use a lot of local products. I ordered a salad and a cheese plate and both... More

We were looking for just a place like this after a full day of summer sunshine. Dinner on the porch watching the St Lawrence and eating excellent food all around. My fresh vegetable pizza with cheddar from Ile aux Grues was unforgettable and fortunately, salicorne was in season to garnish it, along with pea shoots. Our waitress flexibly dealt with... More

The restaurant is located 300 yards away from the Maritime Museum. We dined outside on the veranda with the beautiful sight of the St. Lawrence river. The salmon tartar was outstanding. The goat cheese appetizer was very good as well. Try the raclette (melted swiss cheese) for something different. All desserts were good! Service was up to par but could've... More

Proud to have this restaurant in my village! The chef plays with spices like no one, and from the terrasse, the view on the St-Laurence is amazing!

La Salicorne was recommended to us by our accommodation host. We are very grateful as it was a lovely evening. It is in a gorgeous position on the St Lawrence river and we were lucky with the weather; the sun set behind clouds and provided a dramatic backdrop for our meal. Naturally, French is the main language here but my... More
