We are going every years at this BBQ. After 4 years this one was the most disappointed. Not much of variety. The quality is ok but use to be outstanding. It looks like a cowboy style BBQ but for 62$ by person you would expect munch more than fry chicken and pulled pork. The plate are aluminium cookies tray, look like a cheap cafeteria. They try to change a winning formula into a cheap trendy style. Not what you expect from Fairmont Hotel.

Tasty food but not nearly worth the large bill that comes at the end of the meal.

The service was really good. The foods are good but not outstanding. The wines are very expensives there is a too much mark up!

Quality, choice of foods available and value has decreased from our last visit two years ago. Too bad as it’s a great setting.

The concept is great but the execution not so much. The food overall was not special in any way and some food had an odd flavour. Service was spotty and with so many tables jammed in together, you lose the feeling of being in such a special spot overlooking the river. Shame on you, Fairmont.

Un peu déçu par rapport à notre dernière fois. Il manquait d’accompagnement. J’ai trouvé cette fois-ci que le choix et la qualité ne valait pas le prix qui est assez dispendieux.

We found the wine very expensive.
The meat on the BBQ was very good.
The salad choice was limited and the selection of deserts was poor.

Quelques années se sont écoulées depuis ma dernière visite, et à ma grande surprise, non seulement le prix a beaucoup augmenté, mais la sélection de nourriture a diminué. Cependant, ce qu'il y avait à manger était tout simplement délicieux. Et que dire du service...exceptionnel! 55$ serait un prix un peu plus raisonnable, d'autant plus que l'alcool est ridiculement cher pour rien.

Pretty Grim.. No fresh food available for our 7:30 reservation.. Small bowl of dried out smoked meat and a few pieces of beef, very few salad choices..like a wilted watermelon salad and a very small bowl of a sort of tomato thing, very dried out fried chicken, no fresh choices, service was non-existent, waited 30 minutes for table re-setting. dessert was a coup of choices. It was a birthday celebration which I noted beforehand. It was ignored. Very very very disappointing.

Great place but the meat at the smoke station was cool. I didn't mind to much cause it was over 30 degees celcius.

Repas "chic" de vacances, BBQ très sympatique avec de la viande et du poisson excellent!! La polenta au cheddar un délice -)
Un peu difficile à trouver (derrière le château), ainsi que le parking (parking visiteur, il faut prendre un ticket, on nous redonne un ticket en sortant du restaurant pour ne pas payer) mais sinon rien à redire.

Event was great (our anniversary). Food was great. Service was great. Our table had a lovely view overlooking the gardens and river. It was a Friday night and they also had an entertainer, Charlie, who gave lovely interpretations of various songs including old crooner songs. The weather was also good, and when it started to get a bit chilly towards the end of the evening, the staff lit up the heaters which kept us very comfortable. Overall, we had a great evening and we were very happy with the BBQ at the Fairmont Le Château Montebello.

Délicieux. J’adore l’ajout de fumoir et de crème glacée molle. Par contre, c’est dommage que ce fut au détriment des légumes et salades. Il faut vraiment être un vrai carnivore!

Absolutely beautiful setting on riverfront. Service was great, food was very good. Only complaint is that there were a lot of pesky flies.

Nous avons adoré notre expérience BBQ. Excellent service et bon ambiance pour un souper entre amis sur la terrasse. Quel beau site! Tout en confort même avec les températures fraîches des soirées d'août.

Merci au personnel très attentionné.

Très bon, mais plutôt cher pour un Buffet ou l'on se sert soi-même. Avec taxes et pourboires ça revient à près de 80$ par personne (sans compter le vin ).
Très belle expérience que je renouvellerais plus souvent si le prix était moins cher.

The location and food was great but it is unbelievably overpriced, at $58/guest. There was no food being served that warranted that price.
