Chef Oliver Tali is what is known in the culinary world as a maître canardier, or master chef in the preparation of duck. Normally, that would mean that there's really only one choice: the house specialty, duckling à la rouennaise. But, surprise: The bouillabaisse is also a standout, as is the gracious service. This is a modest-looking roadside restaurant in Centre-Ville Mont-Tremblant with... more

I would agree with previous writers that this might be the best restaurant in the Mont Tremblant area.

The food and service here are excellent. There is a lot of information given, and each dish is prepared thoughtfully. Really a culinary experience, especially with the wine pairing.
