Bistro à Champlain is now open.
On June 17 2015, the Bistro à Champlain proudly moved to Estérel Resort. A transition that took months to prepare in order to receive the precious wine bottles collected by Champlain Charest the last years. Estérel Resort is proud to announce its acquisition of one of Quebec’s treasures: the wine collection from the Bistro à Champlain, which contains more than 5000 bottles. Estérel Resort is honored to be carrying on the legacy of this iconic winery of more than 5000 bottles. Today, the new wine cellar that we have built contains more than 25,000 bottles and 2,400 references.
But the Bistro à Champlain is also a restaurant that offers gastronomic experiences that live up to the reputation of its wine cellar. Discover a new formula where the emphasis is on tasteful discoveries, with high-quality food and the creative inspiration of our chefs!
Important: Access to our services and restaurants is exclusive to our guests during their stay.
Le Bistro à Champlain and chef Cédric St-Pierre are proud to present a new gastronomic formula based on discovery, without an à la carte menu. You will experience varied and colourful dishes, prepared under the inspiration of Chef St-Pierre and his brigade. The food will be carefully chosen according to the seasons, and the different services will be the proof of an extraordinary visual and gustatory narration.
The 4 course menu has been created based on the chef’s inspiration to bring a particular and unique gastronomic touch. We would like to inform our customers with special dietary needs or allergies that we will unfortunately not be able to accommodate them reasonably at the last minute.
However, we would like to inform you that the 4-course menu is never fixed and can change at any time.
Our team of expert sommeliers will also be at your service to help you choose the products that will best punctuate your adventure.
