Each dish or cocktail is elaborated in order to reveal a combination of flavours that are both comforting and authentic.

Le Cinquième Élément

Do you know the phrase, small is beautiful? Well, the expression fits perfectly with this little restaurant located in the heart of the gastronomic village of Compton. Here, they strive to create authentic dishes highlighting the products of our local artisans. And when we say “local”, it can’t be more so: Trout from the Ferme piscicole des Bobines, cheeses from Fromagerie La Station, vegetables from the L'Abri vegetal greenhouses … only products produced in and around Compton! It’s not surprising that Le Cinquième Élément has received the much sought-after Terroir & Saveurs du Québec certification!
