It was a bit difficult to understand the plate explanations ; either the ingredients are too uncommon or I'm too ignorant...but the flavors were all very good if I wasn't always aware of what I was eating..
Great and innovative presentation 😉

This is a special-occasions restaurant for me - and what a treat it was!
The ambience is warm, relaxed, and inviting. We were welcomed and seated. My friend chose an interesting cocktail from among the large selection. Because we wanted to sample as much variety as we could, we selected the five-course meal. I was delighted that each of us had options: to select different course sizes, vegetarian or non-vegetarian. or to share portions. The three different servers were very pleasant, attentive, and gave explanations of each of the courses. Starting with the very fresh amuse-bouche - so light and delicious, we then opened the soup bowl lid which revealed a small portion of very bright green soup, with a perfect-sized oval of sorbet. The cool subtle sweet taste added such a gorgeous flavour to the soup. Each course offered refined distinct flavours and textures. I actually took pictures of most of the courses, something I have never done before, but how else to describe the beauty and delicacy of each portion. Eggplant parmigiana - unrecognizable from any I have ever seen or tasted, with crispy basil on top - heavenly; another course with a perfect bright egg yolk atop its scalloped egg white, atop eggplant, etc. - divine. By the time the fish arrived, we were too full, and so enjoyed it at home the following day. The dessert, a course I rarely eat - was worth every bite! It was in homage to the sugaring-off season that we are presently enjoying: finely cubed pieces of pear, maple syrup, other ingredients, topped by a slender meringue maple leaf, two very thin maple leaf cookies (homemade), and, by my friend's surprised and delighted expression waiting for me to take a bite - snow covered! Yes, it was that snowy Tuesday evening - but snow! Perfection - just sweet enough! I cannot wait to have another occasion to return to this gem of a restaurant. Best meal ever! Somewhat reminiscent of Les Chevres. I have shared my enthusiasm with all my friends.

Les plats sont très bons, c'est une cuisine fine. Nous avons pris un menu 3 services et un menu 5 services ainsi qu'un accord mets-vins (5 vins) que nous avons partagés, pour nous c'était parfait. Attention aux personnes qui aiment sortir le ventre très plein, vous resterez peut-être sur votre faim ! Le cadre est agréable, un peu bruyant (musique un peu trop forte). Je recommande et j'y retournerai volontiers.

Des saveurs incroyables! Nous avons pris le 7 services avec les vins assortis. Presque 4 heures de pur plaisir!
Service sans prétention, très amical et attentionné. Vue sur la cuisine et je peux vous dire que c’est une équipe bien soudée. Le chef cuisinier et propriétaire, est venu nous voir. Très sympathique, passionné et un artiste culinaire! Son amoureuse, toute douce, présente et en même temps discrète. À essayer absolument! J’y retourne pour mon anniversaire en mai. Mon mari l’a promis.

Premièrement, le restaurant se nomme dorénavant "L’Ile Flottante" donc porte à confusion et n’offre que de la nourriture végétarienne! Concept acceptable mais quel gaspillage d’argent... Le menu n’est même pas en ligne! Portions minuscules... Je regrette ne pas m’être levée et être partie. Expérience décevante -

Oui j'ai aimé l'expérience mais sans plus.Je m'attendais à un Waou.Le repas n'était pas divin mais bon à tres bon dependamment des plats (moins aimé le quinoa au chevre. Le ricotta de chevre est peu gouteux)..
Le service est aussi un peu speed.
Nous avons passé tout de même une belle soirée dans l'ensemble.
Pour le vin au verre , peu de choix et le vin nature est présenté comme un vin bizarre par la serveuse.Pas très avenant comme présentation...Lorsqu'elle me l'a fait gouter, j'ai beaucoup aimé.Il faut aider les clients peu habitués à ce genre de vin à l'aborder avec des explications.Il est loin d'être bizarre mais peut être différent de ce qu'on a l'habitude de boire et certainement pas au goût de tous.

Les assiettes sont visuellement parfaites et très stimulantes pour les yeux, mais au niveau du goût, ça manque un peu de relief. Tout est un peu trop homogène au niveau des saveurs. Sauf pour le dessert, vraiment excellent. (Je suis très exigente...) Autrement, le service est excellent et l'ambiance générale très satisfaisante. Une belle expérience gastronomique.

All good from the moment you walk in to when you say goodbye. Île Flottante operates with fixed menus of 3, 5 or 7 courses. We opted for the 3-course menu. Starting with a basket of warm crusty bread followed by complimentary amuse-gueules which consisted of a trio of bursts of flavors, we were treated to a cuisine that is sophisticated without being pretentious, layered flavours without being too complicated. This was an evening of persistent wintry chills but the bowl of summer that was the last course made us forget, if only for a few minutes, what was waiting for us outside the door. We opted for the wine pairing, a good decision to help us discover vintages we might not know. All of this served and explained by a very attentive staff. A memorable meal!

The experience was great and specific to a moment. We found that the value didn't entirely match with the complexity of the plates. However, cuisine was honest and that is never a bad thing. I will certainly recommend the restaurant to my circle of friends that support a more vegetarian based meal with flair.

Thumb-up experience for the night. Highly recommend this place.

Je cuisine personnellement beaucoup alors lorsque je vais au restaurant et que je constate qu'après 200$, je peux faire mieux à la maison, j'en sors évidemment fort déçue. L'Île flottante nous a fait vivre une expérience qui a non seulement répondu à nos attentes à cet égard mais les a dépassé avec tous ces petits à côtés: originalité dans l'assiette sans être to much (parfois les chefs veulent trop, il y a une surcharge de saveurs dans leur proposition, ça part dans toutes les directions, découverte culinaire, fraîcheur, flexibilité (j'ai une intolérance au lactose et on s'est montré sensible et accommodant).
