Magog Restaurants

  • Thick and rich hot chocolate

    This is a chocolate shop but you can also get coffee and ice cream here. The chocolate is very good but the best thing I had here was the hot chocolate. It's thick and rich - almost like hot melted chocolate but not as filling (I got the cup - not the bowl!). Absolutely sinful.I think there's another one in Knowlton. Hot chocolate.

  • Dashed expaections

    Reserved 4 days in advance. Arrived on time. Restaurant half full. Immediately seated at a nice table. Waited ten minutes until a waiter arrived to say that the "Kitchen is backed up tonight" and no food of any kind could be served to us for at least 45 minutes. he suggested we might like to try elsewhere - which we did.If you decide to try...

  • Cavallini Il Ristorante, authentic!!

    Cavallini is truly a MUST to visit if you're close to or in Magog. The ambiance is authentic and the food fabulous. The service was fantastic and the hosts wonderfully charismatic. I’m nowhere near being a culinary critic, so I can’t give justice to this great restaurant. You’ll have to see it yourself… but you won’t be disappointed, trust me!

  • Enjoy dinner on a unique waterside...

    Located in a historic building next to the Massawippi River, The Pilsen is a great place to enjoy a nice meal in the restaurant's country-style dining room, in the British-style pub or on one of the two waterside terraces.The food is great and everyone, from the more traditional customers to the more daring ones, will be pleased with the wide...

  • Magog's microbrewery

    Located in a nice centennial house in downtown Magog, La Memphre is a great place to unwind in a relaxing atmosphere after a day of hiking or sightseeing. The patio offers a great view of Lake Memphremagog, the food is really good and the staff is very friendly. Give the local beer a try!

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a really nice place to eat in Magog where the atmosphere is pretty relaxed. Starting 10 pm from thursdays to Sunday, they have singers that sing traditional songs and international hits. It's a nice place to relax at the end of the day and discover a bit of the 'Boite a chanson' atmosphere even if it's not really one.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you do choose to sleep at L'Ancestrale B&B, BEWARE OF THIS CRAZY CAT!! I don't remember it's name, but he's pretty funny..When Monique (the owner) left for supper at friends, Marie and I were watching the Olympics in the B&B. We heard something at the door, o opened it and this cat came running in!! And he had a party!! First attacking the carpet..then eating the newspaper I wast trying to use for starting the fireplace, THEN attacking the cord for the blinds..he just went MAADD!! When Monique came back in and saw him sleeping on the DINNING ROOM TABLE, she was not impressed...then she saw her OTHER cat sleeping on the living rooms couch!! She was a bit miffed at them, but we tought it was funny..obviously, her cats took advantage that their 'mom' was not around.. :)
