Bonjour! Restaurant advice, please.

Our first trip to Mont Tremblant is coming up in a few weeks, and we're very excited!

We'd like to celebrate our last evening together (a Saturday) with some wonderful local food and ambiance! We're trying to decide between Le Cheval de Jade, Le Grill Saint George's, and L'Escalope.

Any recommendations? Also,

1. Are they all within a 15-minute drive of the Pedestrian Village? We're staying at Le Sommet des Neiges, and

2. Do we need to be dressed up for any of them?

Thank you!

1. Re: Bonjour! Restaurant advice, please.

You do not have to dress up for any of them. Why did you choose those three, as they are very different to each other?

Le Grill is more pub food/tavern.

Cheval Jade is French style cooking.

L'escalope is a placce where lots of locals go to eat, they used to have a great salad bar and might be BYOB, not sure anymore.

Yes they are all about 15 minutes from the resort.

Another to look at is Seb, very good local chef in a very small resto, also Le Petite Cachee, closer to the resort.

The QUintessense, walking to the resort, is incredible, but higher end.

Cost for your picks will also be very differents.

Cheval de Jade = expensive, Grill Sainr- Geroge = depends on what yo choose for both food and drinks, L'Escalope = not expensive particularly since it is still BYOB and still has a great salad / appetizers all you can eat buffet.

Well, Cheval du Jade is outstanding, L'Escalope can be very good (and they are still BYOB), though the décor for my taste seems to be still stuck in a time warp. It definitely is a local place for birthday and anniversary and similar celebrations, which makes it lively, but hardly intimate. I have eaten at--and like--all of the restaurants mentioned; most recently, Seb at New Year’s Eve and Petite Cachee in October. Have to second bogwoppit’s recommendations about Seb, Petite Cachee and Quintessence. All three are excellent, as is Cheval du Jade. All four have at least some dishes made with local ingredients; Seb tends to emphasize local products a bit more than the others.

Frankly, you won’t be disappointed with any of these four for a nice dinner on your last night. That said, the atmosphere differs at each and none of the three is exactly inexpensive, though Petite Cachee might be the most moderately-priced of the four. If budget is an issue, definitely put L’Escalope back into play; food generally is good and they offer excellent value. Also, table d'hôte is always less expensive than ordering a la carte. Finally, there is nothing really wrong with St-Georges if pub grub is what you want, but it doesn't seem to fit your description of a place to celebrate your last evening together in Mont Tremblant.

Look at their menus online as well as at the reviews. That will help you to decide.

Ha! These days we rarely eat out in Tremblant. Our city life is keeping us very busy.
