Fodor's Expert Review Le Baccara
Nothing is left to chance at this five-star restaurant in the Lake Leamy casino. Service is first class, from the choice of complimentary spring or sparkling water to the fresh linen napkin waiting every time you return to your table. Chef Serge Rourre, in the open kitchen, brings a contemporary twist to classic French cuisine. Rack of caribou is served in a crushed-nut-and-juniper-berry crust. Langoustine tails and seared scallops top an oatmeal galette accompanied by squash puree. The five-course Grand Menu Dégustation du Chef (C$90) and eight-course Menu Gastronomique (C$115) can be paired with wines chosen for each dish. Ask for a window table. The view of the lake makes for a romantic and memorable evening.
