8 beers on tap, nothing really standing out, although all drinkable. Nice location and beautiful drive to get there. Only food we ordered where appetizers.

Endroit assez grand avec une belle terasse, bien situé sur le bord du fleuve. Ambiance assez moyenne car c’est souvent vide. Le service est assez moyen. Les bière sont bonne. Bonne place mais a encore du chemin a faire!
Visited on a monday afternoon. Absolutely beautiful location on île d’Orléans, probably one of Quebec’s best and most popular agro-tourism locations. The pub is about a 25 minute drive from downtown Quebec City and really easy to find (just off the (one and only) main road). The pub is spacious. The selection was OK. They have their 6 regular beers on tap, with 2 of their seasonal beers available in 500 ml bottles. 5 oz taster glasses are available, as well as 10 and 16 oz glasses. They offer a good variety of different foods, with a lot of local products, for a very good price (especially considering the touristy nature of the island). Value is good on both food and beer. They don’t brew mind blowing beers, but everything is good and the place is definitely worth a trip.
A gorgeous little pub on Orleans Island. In the Summer, their terrasse is a definite MUST. They have a great selection of beers, from maple red to scotch ale and imperial stout (unfortunately, their delicious double IPA was not available when I went).
Food is quite Okay for a pub, a bit pricey but still honest. Service was a tad bit on the slow side the one time I stopped by, though...
Nice looking place, great location. L’ile D’orleans is beautiful. They have a great patio overlooking the Fleuve St’Laurent, its a spectacular view. The staff was very nice, and friendly. They had 5 of their own beers on tap, but no tasting trays. So I had their scotch ale, and my wife had their wit. Both were nice. I didnt have any food, but the place was packed so i assume it’s decent.
Nice terrace. All sampled I had were well made. Be sure to sit outside to enjoy the beautiful view. The service was friendly and fast. Close to Quebec city which is a major plus. The best place to drink near the historic town.
We were there on a very misty early winter day. Nevertheless, the view over the clouded St.Lawrence felt mystical. The beers were pleasant enough, 5 of them, not very adventurous, but their new Extra Stout was solid and a proof of their desire to go beyond the ordinary. Pleasant tavern where a fireplace would fit nicely. The crowd consists mostly of locals. Not particularly knowledgeable service, but more than happy to let us know about their new offering. Not hugely beer-focused, but probably more interesting than any of the surrounding cideries. All in all, a fine experience besides our difficulty to get out of the slidy parking lot!
Goldorak’s review pretty much says it all: great view from the terrace, nice enough wooden bar, very simple beer selection (although mine were all clean and drinkable), a friendly but not knowledgeable waitress, etc. Because the beers were decent, I’ll come back when I’m on Orleans Island, but I won’t be going out of my way for a pint here. They now bottle most of their beers, by the way. Amongst all the cideries, cassic liqueur makers, wineries, and other artisans on this island, this one doesn’t stand out much so far.
Établissement visité le vendredi 27 avril vers 14h30. Ambiance: Décoration intérieure en tuile et boiserie. Superbe terrasse donnant sur le fleuve. Musique downtempo lors de ma visite. Service: Très sympatique mais la personne ne connaissait pas vraiment les bières. Sélection: Lors de ma visite 4 fûts étaient en service. Nourriture: Petit menu sans artifice. J’ai pris un plat de croutons de brie au miel. (44e rating d’établissement)
