Le Rustique is a new restaurant that has replaced the Auberge Caribou on the North Side. Run by the same people who manage Cote Nord and La Fraternite sur le Lac, Le Rustique is a great restaurant that has a ton of charm, ambience, a bit of history, and great food.
Le Rustique used to be considered the Gray Rocks of the North side back in the day. It was THE place to eat, sleep, and have a few drinks. People used to call it the unofficial entrance to the Mont-Tremblant National Parc. Denis Bilodeau, cousin of Claude Desbiens, was the owner back in the 50s and there are a couple barn doors in the restaurant that pay homage to both men, pioneers of the Lac Superieur region.
The decor is charming and really cool. The old furniture that has been revamped and looks trendy and rustique. A taxidermist has definitely participated in the decor of the restaurant. Fur jackets used as blankets hang on the sofas and adorn the walls. Big stuffed deer heads and bears lurk in the corners reminding us of the history that once was. The ambiance is great, a nice big bar centers the restaurant were you can enjoy a nice glass of wine. You can also enjoy a cozy get together in front of the big fireplace or play a game of pool with some friends. Old board games and books surround the restaurant giving the feeling you are at your cool grandparents house.
Make a reservation at Le Rustique, the restored restaurant can now cater to bigger groups as well as weddings. Ideal for your next night out.
