Published on May 31 2019 - Sponsored

I don’t know about you, but when the good weather finally returns, my schedule tends to fill up with tons of activities and outings of all kinds. Among all these activities, I particularly enjoy long, languid evenings spent sitting on the terrace of a good restaurant, surrounded by friends.

That’s why, for your next get-togethers with the gang, I’m suggesting 7 restaurants as different as they are delicious!

7 restaurants to (re)discover this summer

Soif – Wine Bar

88 Montcalm Street, Gatineau 

Do you have good news or a special occasion to celebrate? Soif – Wine Bar is the perfect place! World-renowned sommelière Véronique Rivest chose Old Hull to open her wine bar and share her passion with the local population. Here, you can sample Véronique’s latest finds and discover new products every week.

Authentic wines, small plates, tasting evenings, a beautiful terrace and a relaxing atmosphere: those are just a few of the reasons that make Soif the perfect place to raise a glass with your nearest and dearest!

At the Rustiek, it’s all about fine food. Christopher, the chef, brings his own special touch to northern European cuisine prepared with fresh local ingredients, while Jesse, the maître d’, welcomes you with a smile and takes great care of you all evening!

Not only is every dish on the menu creative and delicious, but the atmosphere is friendly, there’s a wide selection of Quebec craft beers, and the private import wine list and creative cocktails are outstanding.

Looking for a restaurant with undeniable charm? Look no further than Le Cellier, located in a heritage home in Old Hull. Comfortably seated on the magnificent terrace, enjoy a delicious gourmet dinner and sample wines from around the world.

And if your mouth waters when you hear the word “oyster,” you have to try the $1 oysters on Wednesdays! Not to mention Tartare Thursdays!

Gainsbourg Bistro-Brasserie

9 Aubry Street, Gatineau

Not sure quite what you’re in the mood for? Burgers, mussels and fries, the taco of the day, mac ‘n’ cheese—the Gainsbourg has something for everyone!

And if hops make you happy, you’ll love the Gainsbourg‘s top-quality beers. Be sure to try the wee heavy (Scotch ale), which won a gold medal at the 2018 World Beer Cup.

Oh—and while you’re there, check out the Gainsbourg’s calendar of events! 😉

La Ferme Rouge

1170 Aylmer Road, Gatineau

More than just a night out at the restaurant, La Ferme Rouge delivers a dynamic evening of great food and Las Vegas-style variety shows! Besides the Folies Bergère, Elvis, and some of the region’s hottest artists, you’ll love the AAA quality steak and excellent assortment of seafood.

The dinner-theatre concept makes this a popular spot for a fun evening with friends. But don’t take my word for it: try it—you’ll like it!
