We've had dinner here a few times, and every time, it's been absolutely delicious. Offering popcorn instead of a bread basket is a fun change! They have a great selection of local beers and ciders, as well as wines and cocktails. On our last visit, I had the vegetarian lentil curry, which was heavenly. They always have at least one...

My boyfriend and I ate at Chez Eric on Tuesday Burger Night and were amazed by the quality of the food. I appreciated their use of organic meat and GMO-free food. The plates were amazing. I ordered a burger with mushrooms, goat cheese, bacon, and arugula; the combination of flavors was incredible. The price was very respectable for the quality... More

Late one summer night, my husband and I headed out from our room at the Alpengruss very hungry. We soon realized that most cafes & restaurants were either closed or had no tables. We decided to keep walking & see where we ended up, and ended up finding the lovely romantic patio of Chez Eric. It was a beautiful summer... More

We bought a Groupon and was adventurous enough to drive out to Wakefield to try Chez Eric. Actually I bought it by accident but what a pleasant experience. Rustic feel but the food and the skill of the food prep were not rusty at all. We had a lobster bisque that was smooth and lush. The popcorn gracing our table... More

This is a very small restaurant serving high-end French dishes in a road side house that you will easily miss, but shouldn't. Fantastic food, lovely service and reasonable prices make it a worthwhile destination, just don't expect to show up and find a table at peak hours. Reserve ahead!

Dined at Chez Eric, a small (cozy) very rustic family run operation located in Wakefield, Quebec. We went with another couple who had been there several times and loved it. I now understand why they think it is worth the drive from Ottawa. The hostess was very welcoming, the cuisine well executed takes on classic bistro fare. We had two... More

Looking for great food at a very reasonable price? Want it served in a cozy little setting where the only people working are the two owners? Want it to be a place named after a famous fish? Then Chez Eric is exactly the place for you! We were there on Tuesday night and Tuesday night is burger night. I ate... More

Chez Eric was originally named after a goldfish-that should tell you a lot right there. It's quaint and quirky with few tables and great food. It's so small you end up talking to others in the restaurant around you. Prices are appropriate and for me a must go to restaurant in Wakefield.

We bought the groupon and decided that we would make the drive from Kanata New Years eve and have what we hoped would be a nice meal. We were not disappointed. A 40 minute lazy drive and we were rewarded with a cozy place, great service and delicious food. Chez Eric meets my personable taste - owner operators that care... More
