Will be staying in the area in August, and am wondering if there are any good restaurants in the vicinity or within an easy-ish drive. I'm willing to go as far as Tadoussac. I've eaten in someone's home (and will again), but for dining out have only done the 3 Manoir Richelieu restaurants (all very nice) and a seafood place on the road to the ferry whose name I cannot remember. Thank you. I'm open to any menu type.
I visited Charlevoix with my parents and it was really wonderful. If you have a chance take in some whale watching in Tadoussac - we saw five kinds of whales on our trip! Close up too!
Also check out the flavour trail...
There are tons of farms, vineyards and other gourmet stops along the way.
We ate at this restaurant/farm in Baie-Saint-Paul.
It was amazing. However, that was a couple of years ago so I can't vouch for quality now.
We stayed in Baie-Saint-Paul (Auberge Aux Petits Oiseaux which was WONDERFUL and had great breakfasts), and we found most of the other restaurants to be pretty touristy and basic. It is good that you are researching ahead of time.
