La Maison du Bootlegger is nestled in the middle of nowhere, about a 20 minute drive from the heart of La Malbaie. This very casual place is a tourist attraction that serves ribs and steaks. Patrons must take the "table d'hôte" in order to stay...More

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. With the Canadian dollar currently going down, we're starting to have a lot more non-French speaking people from other countries, so maybe next time you'll have more people to talk to in English !...More
