After taking the ferry from Forestville to Rimouski, I stopped at the first lighthouse near Rimouski. There was this person greeting people at the museum. Between the two of us, French/English, this man insisted that we go the Bistro Nipigon for lunch. I swear if he wasn't working, he would have driven us there. What a WONDERFUL LUNCH. I had... More

Took a scenic detour and found this gem! Very quiet since it's really after peak season, but waitress was helpful since we don't speak French, l had the haddock and French fries and both were great. My husband had the lobster club and fries, both enjoyed by him! The day was nice and we got some pretty scenic pictures. So... More

While travelling, we discovered this little village. Quaint, quiet and then we discovered this bistro on the seafront. Had a fish dish which was excellent all the while looking at the setting sun.

Read BoppinRobin's review, she has summed it up, I was one of the 32, we were at least 12 sitting on the same table that seems to have been totally forgotten. So please add on another 10 bad reviews. We even asked what was going on to the other server who was taking care of one of our group tables,... More

We were a group of 32 people who booked months in advance at this bistro/bar so that presumably they could hire sufficient staff to accommodate us efficiently. It is a fairly large, bar type restaurant with an outdoor area so they should have been used to serving a restaurant that was maybe 70% full on a Saturday evening. The service... More

On a recent visit to Sainte-Luce-sur-Mer, on Quebec's Lower St. Lawrence shore, we decided to have lunch on the outdoor terrace at Bistro du Nipigon. We both ordered the seafood crepe with a bottle of white Italian wine. Our meals were delicious and our wine was perfect, served chilled in an ice bucket. Our server, Eric, who is also one... More

Friendly owner welcomed us as we arrived for dinner. He took time to answer our questions about the attractions in the area and made good suggestions. We also heard about the historical... More

My friend and I were touring the Gaspe peninsula and stayed over at Ste Luce de Mer. We had delicious scallops and salmon here. With salad and vegetables. We both agreed that it was a wonderful experience. The service was excellent and the owner was very pleasant and informed us of places to visit. I would recommend this restaurant without... More

06-23-2013 We went there yesterday and it was the worst experience for eating lobster. We waited over 45 minutes and when it arrived it was overcooked, dry and it even did not taste lobster. Like the other couple said it was not busy at all. TERRIBLE, NEVER AGAIN!

My husband and I had a choice of eating here or at a Bistro down the street. We decided to eat here since they had lobster and I was in the mood for lobster...... BIG MISTAKE! It wasn't even a busy, and after we ordered, it took 1 hour for the food to arrive. In the meantime, we had nothing... More
