This lovely little restaurant is one of the best kept secrets in Quebec. We love this restaurant so much that my husband and I drive two hours from Quebec City to eat here every year. My husband loves their varied menu with fresh local ingredients and inventive cuisine. As a vegetarian, when reserved ahead of time, the chefs make me... More

Apparently everybody knows that this is the best restaurant in LaMalbaie - at least in winter when some places are closed. Quiet, lovely, not stuffy, wonderful servers! Thank you for being so nice and helpful to us as the menu is unique. Choose either two or three choices and every bite is incredible. The little extras just come - including... More

Exquisite menu, amazing atmosphere, excellent service! Worth travelling to from anywhere on the planet! One of the highlights of our trip to Charlevoix.

I went here with my fiancé last week. I did not do my research properly so didn't quite expect the high prices/type of meals but we like to eat very well occasionally and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Love the concept (two menus....one prepared by the husband and one prepared by the wife...creamier verses more spices /vegetables). Myself being lactose intolerant... More

The entire experience was excellent. The food is exquisite and the atmosphere very relaxed. My rack of lamb was the best I've ever had. Not inexpensive although the wine was moderately priced. The chefs were kind enough invite us into the kitchen to chat after we finished our meal. A must visit if you're in Charlevoix!

This restaurant was fabulous! The food was superb, the service was excellent, the atmosphere lovely. I have eaten in many restaurants in my life. I have access to wonderful places in NYC and Vices Versa ranks in my top ten restaurants of all time!

The owner of the B&B at which we were staying recommended we try this restaurant as it is his favourite, and one taste of the food explains why! There is no question that both chefs (owners) have a passion for food and local products. My husband and I each picked three proteins, one ordered the Mr. and one the Mrs.... More

On holidays from Montreal, this was a meal comparable to any high-end Montreal restaurant. A definite must if you are in Malbaie. The service was impeccable and we had the pleasure of meeting the chefs afterwards. A very nice evening.

Unique concept. Two chefs take a protein and prepare a different dish with it. So you might have a choice between a lobster bisque or a lobster salad. Instead of a traditional appetizer/entree/dessert you choose two or three plates from either side and they provide a nice amuse bouche to start. The place is quite lovely and casual on a... More

This has to be the best restaurant in town! It's a special place, from the concept (2 chefs, 2 menus) to the remarkable service, but specially because of the quality of the food. Ingredients mix just perfectly in your mouth, and everything tastes so fresh. I already want to come back to try the rest of the menu!
