AN EXQUISITE CULINARY EXPERIENCE
The Pourvoirie du Lac-Moreau is, of course, a “natural” choice for its wilderness setting and magnificent scenery… but our gourmet dining is another highly sought out feature: generous, hearty cuisine, inspired by these unique surroundings. Pure bliss for the taste buds, wonderfully paired with wines from the rich selection housed in our cellar!
A LONG-STANDING TRADITION OF QUALITY AND CREATIVITY
Noël Tremblay, the Auberge and Pourvoirie manager, has nurtured a passion for creating dishes that showcase game and fish – the products his gourmet cuisine is renowned for – over more than 20 years.
Our wine cellar, which features some unique vintages, is another tour de force. Noël’s constant and attentive presence has sustained the quality of our creations and our ongoing quest for new flavours over the years, as our cuisine gains in finesse like a top-notch wine.

OUR SEASONAL MENU
Our chef, Michel Chrétien, creates all sorts of unlikely duos, subtly blending the great tradition of French cooking with our local heritage. We also introduce you to some unique products that are grown and processed right here in the Charlevoix region.
Dining at the Auberge means discovering unique flavours without straying from the fundamentals of our cuisine, which is inspired by the boreal forest and two traditional Québec and Native activities: hunting and fishing.
Looking for a personal favourite from your last stay that’s not on our current seasonal menu? Our chef is always open to gourmet requests (based on product availability and Auberge occupancy). Feel free to ask!
Twenty years of culinary research have yielded a number of classics – a list of “must-try” unique dishes, drawn up by Noël Tremblay and his chefs, that you’ll never see anywhere else. Savour them in our dining room or place an order for take-away!
