Le Coureur des Bois Wine List

About Le Coureur des Bois

Hôtel Rive-Gauche is a bit far away (a 40-minutes drive from Montreal), but eating at Le Coureur des Bois is definitely worth the trip. The outside is not appealing, but never mind - inside you will find the biggest cellar of the province. The restaurant has a modern rustic design, and the menu offers contemporary cuisine made with Quebec products. Service is pleasant, with complete explanations. Try the Tablée du chef, which goes with its own sommelier and offers prestige wine matches. Ask for a visit of the cellar - there are a lot of large formats and the walls are signed by winemakers and wine personalities.
