Baccara

Address:
Casino du Lac Leamy
1 Boulevard du Casino,
Gatineau, QC
Situated on the top floor of the Lac Leamy Casino in Hull, this high end French cuisine restaurant stays true to its CAA-AAA 5 diamond distinction since 2001. The restaurant is not a large restaurant like one would think being affiliated with the casino. It has this very romantic atmosphere about it, right down to classical harp being played while you wait for your meal to be presented to you. The open concept kitchen adds to the restaurant’s atmosphere like art pieces hung on a museum wall. The menu is very much French inspired hence one of their signature is the foie gras plate. A favorite among any foie gras lover – I have been told by many foie gras aficionados its one of the best places to enjoy this fatty delicacy. 

The Baccara offers a blind tasting menu, one that should be tried if you are adventurous and open to anything. You must be open to the fact that your senses will be at the mercy of the executive chef. The blind tasting menu is like experiencing xmas morning…the anticipation of what will be served, the excitement of what flavours will tease your taste buds. The blind tasting is an awakening for all of your senses and the royal treatment doesn’t stop there. When the meal comes to your table a synchronized and well choreographed movement of servers in perfect harmony open the silver domes encompassing your epicurean event – all chiming in perfect unison. The Baccara is an ideal location to celebrate a special occasion as the venue and your experience there will continue making more memories to an already memorable evening.

Bon appétit,
