If you can imagine a mix of fine dining and the the arrival-of-a-massive-bus-tour style meal, you will understand Le Coffret. It is a little more than you'd pay for this food anywhere else, but the atmosphere, service and proximity to Foresta Lumina make it a hand-in-hand experience. Worth it in light of that. And they have a wonderful focus on... More

We had dinner at this restaurant right at the sight of the Enchanted Forest at the Park de la Gorge. I had the filet mignon table de hote; another had the trout duo. The portion size of the escargot appetizer was small and drowned in some kind of sauce that smothered the taste. But the main course was a good... More

A bit pricey but nice atmosphere, service was great and the food was very good. If the weather is nice, they have outside dining and that was enjoyable.

A little more than what I think the food is worth but the service was great and the food was delicious. If you want something small but flavorful? The simple french fries with their house mayonnaise. So good.

I always feel a bit guilty at not giving an excellent rating to a place where I had a really good experience. The Coffret de l'Imagination delivers in every regard from location in an old brick building at the entrance to Coaticook Gorge, to a nice interior with some imaginative paintings, to good service to good value. My adult son... More

The restaurant is located in a rustic building. Even though it was busy (Friday night), we were shown to a table quickly. What the plate lack in presentation give you tenfold in flavors. I strongly recommend the trout duet. Fresh fillet top with a rosace of smoked trout and perfect trimmings. Very friendly staff.

Stopped in for a business lunch with two colleagues. Sat outside and received stellar service with tasty, hot food straight from the kitchen. Large portions!

We went as a family of 5 to eat at this restaurant before going to foresta lumina which is right across. It is a beautiful restaurant with a really nice atmosphere, especially at night with all their candles and wood furnishings. I ordered the salmon in basil and mango. I came with crispy veggies and rice. Was very good. Would... More

We took our son and his girlfriend for dinner one week after we had been there for lunch. Like in the past, lunch was a good experience. However, they must have had a shift change for the cook. The only item that was acceptable was the mussels plate. The salmon, the pasta, and the trout dishes were lukewarm, lacked flavoring,... More

This restaurant il located at the entrance of a very nice park and it is a very old buiding. But that's all! The food is very, very basic. The chef! tried to prepared some intersting plates, but the taste is horrible. We had chicken that didn't had any flavor and tasted like rubber, soagys vegetables, pasta with pesto and thick...
