Honey, Let’s Eat at the Hotel!

Published on Mar 6, 2019

The time when hotel restaurants were these sad, bland places have evolved quite a lot! To prove our point, here are eight of these restaurants where our local products are brilliantly celebrated.

Le Picollo, at St-Christophe Hôtel & Spa (Granby)

A table overlooking Boivin lake and a sunny Mediterranean menu? Sold! Although well known for its refined French cuisine, the bistro has also become popular for its petiscos, their Portuguese tapas. The hotel’s two Portuguese chefs excel in the art of grilling and their octopus dish is one of the most popular items on the menu.

The Restaurant 4 Canards, at Château Bromont (Bromont)

Wild game and berries, which the chef particularly loves to prepare, take centre stage here. Of course, we can find Lake Brome duck on the menu, with its foie gras, magret and other ravioli offerings. We must give the restaurant a special mention for its Saturday evening romantic ambiance when you’ll dine accompanied by the music of their talented pianist.

Le Bistro, at l’Auberge West Brome (West Brome)

You’ll appreciate the country setting and the calm atmosphere of this great restaurant, where the chef combines vegetables and herbs from an organic garden. Will you be tempted by the creamy squash risotto with refined goat cheese, roasted nuts and Camelina honey or the deer medallion cooked at low temperature with seared foie gras and elderberry sauce?

Le Pleasant Café, at l’hôtel Pleasant (Sutton)

Victorian decor, casual atmosphere, a warm welcome: you’ll be conquered! As for the menu, it will amaze you from its breakfast offer to its cocktail hour and brunch selections of vegan, vegetarian and classic dishes. Without a doubt, the excellent coffee brewed in their Barista micro-roaster, also contributes to the success of Le Pleasant.

The Restaurant, at Spa Eastman (Eastman)

As with Chinese cuisine and its invigorating and energizing ingredients, the nutritherapist chef of this establishment devoted to wellness, creates delicious dishes that will give you a real boost. Among these, a sesame-seed-crusted, steam seared albacore tuna. And, to accompany these joy-filled morsels, there’s nothing better than an Eastman wine, developed following the principles of a reasoned agriculture by our region’s wine producers.

Le Hatley, at Manoir Hovey (North Hatley)

A highly refined cuisine constitutes one of the prerequisites to be able to join the Relais & Châteaux group, of which this establishment is a member. This alone is proof of the best quality. Added to this, their great table has a constantly evolving cuisine, attentive to area producers. Here you’ll truly experience a memorable gastronomical moment!

Le Bistro, at l’auberge La Chocolatière (North Hatley)

When brunch time comes around, the place to take your family is right here! Among its menu musts, their pancakes and French toast you can drench in chocolate, chocolate pastries and hot chocolate beverages, which give the restaurant its renown. All these treats can be eaten on the terrace with sunrises or sunsets in the background.

The restaurant, at l’auberge La ruée vers Gould (Lingwick)

From Easter to Thanksgiving, here you’ll find the best Sunday brunch of the region, served in a typical 19th century setting. Inspired by its local heritage, rooted in Scotland, their table hints at this rich history through their traditional English pub style dishes. Here, you find, lamb roasted in scotch, tartan flan and a total change of scenery!
