    l'entrée et le plat principal étaient bien. Mais les desserts étaient de qualité médiocres. le service était sympatique mais nous avons attendus les desserts médiocres 40 minutes. c'est beaucoup trop et nous a pratiquement gâché la soirée. c'est regrettable parce que tout le reste s'était très bien passé. Il faut améliorer cela !

    Food was good, but service was not. Our waiter was new, so I am not considering him. I noticed, however, a number of other patrons complaining about service, wrong wine being brought to the table, not having the wine in stock, etc. You are crammed in like sardines, so it seemed a bit chaotic when people were being seated while food was being served.

    A very good example of French bistro dining located in a picturesque spot in Tremblant Village. The atmosphere was very nice and could be romantic. We were there early when there were many kids but that was ok, too. Food of a high quality and well prepared. We enjoyed it a great deal and would return. Notable were the duck confit and warm goat cheese salad.

    The restaurant was highly recommended but did not live up to any part of that recommendation. The service began OK but the service was absent after that. The filet steaks were suppose to be medium (lots of pink) but were hockey pucks and there was no one to complain to. There were a few small potatoes and three spears of vegetables. Extra veg were $8.00 each. The desert was suppose to be a Quebec favourite (hot with maple syrup) but was still frozen in the centre, The first coffee was cold and the next luke warm. We left - not happy but much poorer.

    5è visite à ce restaurant toujours apprécié de toute la famille, mais cette fois-ci, j'ai trouvé les portions minuscules (rapport quantité/prix) On dirais qu'à chaque visite les prix augmentent et les quantités diminuent! Dommage... car, c'était un incontournable lorsque nous allions faire du ski.

    We have eaten here on past visits to Tremblant and the food and service were much better on the past visits. We ate the tapas, and none of them wowed us as before. Hope the kitchen just had an off night, but there kist seemed to be some attention to detail missing, both in the food and service. Also, the live entertainment was too loud for the size of the eating area.

    With dozens of restaurants in the skiing capital of Quebec, this restaurant stands out by offering delicious french cooking at reasonable prices in the heart of the Mont-Tremblant pedestrian village. I had Rack of Lamb that was delicious and enough to satisfy the hunger after a full day of hiking or skiing. Delicious soups and a wide selection of entrees make this a great place to eat in Mont-Tremblant.

  • A wasted and expensive evening
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/9/2011
    The food is very expensive and the quality was mediocre at best. The service was very bad, we had to serve our wine ourselves and had to ask 3 times for water. At $225 for two, I would have expected much more. The music was extremely loud and the staff kept on changing the tunes every 5 minutes, changing the mood and ambiance at each time. Tables were very close to each other (3 inches apart). I will never go back to this restaurant and would not recommend it to anyone.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/7/2011
    My husband and I had a gift certificate at Avalanche for $100.00. It was our anniversary and we thought we would spend a night in Mont Trembant and enjoy a nice diner. When we presented them with the certificate, we were told that we were only allowed three items from the main menu. It was embarassing that they came to our table to explain this to us and that surrounding tables could hear. Instead of just telling us to order what we wanted and anything over $100.00 we would have to pay. Also at the end of the meal I ordered the cream brulé and they charge me an extra $2.00 because they said the certificate was only for cheese cake. We didn't appreciate being nickeled and dimed.

    Overpriced for the quality of the food. The staff wasn't really welcoming we had to wait a few minutes to be aknowledge at the entrance. The waitress doesn't have enough experience and needed a constant supervision. Our appetizers were barely warm. We asked for a cappucino and instead of being made with espresso it was made with filtered coffee, which is unacceptable. One good note the bartender made mind blowing cocktails.

    I was so disappointed. Every restaurant that we have found on opentable.com has been wonderful, but this one was not. The service was extremely slow and terrible. The waiter mixed up our order. My husband ordered the rack of lamb and he received a tenderloin. It was also very noisy and the tables are very, very close to one another.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 1/15/2011
    Being one of only two french restaurants on Mont Tremblant, we were hoping for a spectacular dinner ... not what we got. Service and ambiance was okay, food very disappointing. Four of us sat down looking for good french cuisine. The escargot were chewy and sauce was nothing more than melted gorgonzola. The foie gras was prepared to the "chef's inspiration"? Not much inspiration going on. The rack of lamb was good, the veal chop special was dry and lacked flavor, as did the sauce. My daughter had the best meal by far ... the tartar duo and grilled pear salad. Lots of money for little flavor and satisfaction..

    A great find at the Mont Tremblant resort. We enjoyed our meal very much, there was much to choose from. The escargot item was a favorite, but everything we ordered was unique and delicious. The live music was a nice touch that added to the atmosphere. Service was with a smile, but our waitress DID forget to bring us a bread basket until we actually asked for it. Overall, a nice, cozy place. We will return and recommend it.

    L'Avalanche in Mont Tremblant was an unexpected gem. We enjoyed the tapas "Earth Sampler" very much, and the martini - whew! Strong but great flavour. A varied selection of martini choices. Service was very enjoyable, Jab from Cannes. Welcome to Canada, Jab. The outdoor patio was lovely, comfortable seating and well lit once dusk set in. We would highly recommend!

    Overpriced, but still pretty good food. Went with 2 kids almost 4 and 2 years, and the waiter was very friendly and accommodating. A live music performance, which was not too loud despite being right next to our table, also entertained the kids through dessert. Even the elk was pretty good. But for 4 adults and 2 kids, with only a couple of drinks, and including tip, our tab was $420. To be fair, everything else in the Tremblant pedestrian village was also overpriced.

    went 2 times during christmas holidays. it was very good and the service is great. The first time I had tapas that are very good - try the giant shrimp- excellent, the second time around I had the lamb, it was great, very tasty and portions are sufficient. A bit too expensive....230 dolars for 2 (bottle of wine -mid expensive- included).
