Nestled away in Wakefield this converted Mill is a lovely gem in Gatineau. Blending old and new we enjoyed a very creative meal featuring Québécois flair, a more able wine list, and a roaring falls just outside. Worth the drive from Ottawa. Note: No Uber rides!

service is terribly slow. Food is nothing special and certainly not worth the price you pay. We would not recommend and we won't be returning

Our family had very good memories of this restaurant (years ago) but this was a very disappointing meal. Most first courses were dull and tasteless and the gigot d'agneau was tough and overcooked. Much overpriced!
Though the outside scenery is enchanting, the inside needs a little makeover and tender loving care - the floor covering where our table was located was sticky and ugly looking.
It's too bad because this used to be one of the good restaurants in the area.
Pauvre qualité de la nourriture - certainement pas un très bon rapport qualité-prix!
Vraiment dommage!

À l'occasion de notre 35e anniversaire de mariage, notre fille & gendre nous ont offert un forfait
spécial chez vous. Pédicure deluxe dont nous avons beaucoup aimés avec des esthéticiennes professeionnelles et adorables. Un repas gastronomique délicieux à la Muse ayant un service exceptionnel. Un nuitée dans une chambre authentique et confortable. Notament un déjeuner
continental savoureux et bien présenté en compagnie d'un serveur exceptionnel Michel!

Sans oublié la chalheureuse accueil dès notre entrée dans votre chalheureux bâiment d'anthan!

Merci de vos bons services!

Service was impeccable; waiter was subtle and helpful. Amuse bouche was a tasty sea scallop; apple liqueur as palate cleanser was refreshing. I had surf and turf as main - beef was tender but lobster tail was just so so. Overall excellent experience.

The restaurant was in a scenic location. I thought the food was fine, but probably not quite worth the price. I found the service to be somewhat slow and indifferent.

Everything was wonderful, my friend and I enjoyed our 3 course meal - also appreciated that it is good value for quality of food. My one very very small issue is that I mentioned we were celebrating my friends birthday and it was not acknowledged. It certainly didn't put a damper on our night just a little disappointed.

The food was wonderful as usual. The desserts could be more diverse with more gluten free options. Overall very happy with the service, quality and presentation of the food.

This restored Mill in a peaceful, historic, and artistic village, offers a relaxed environment in which to enjoy their two dining venues that provide indoor, terrace, and outdoor dining above the rushing waters below. Disappointed that the more formal restaurant, The Muse, was not open for lunch, so we opted to dine in the second (and less elegant) restaurant off the bar area. Food did not disappoint, although not as "special" as we had expected. Wine prices (for bottles) were relatively high. Would like to give it another try in the evening at The Muse restaurant.
