About us

Restaurant Les Fougères has won multiple regional and national level awards since opening in 1993 for its dedication to culinary excellence and the exploration of regional + seasonal ingredients and flavours.
Chef Blake Williams, Sous Chef Simon Beaudry and their brigade offer a constantly rolling menu rooted in our West Quebec seasons, terroir + region beyond. 
Maître d’Hôtel, Manna Phillips and her dining room team wear their hearts on their sleeves to create a warm, non pretentious atmosphere of calm, refuge, attentiveness & vitality in the dining room.
The restaurant overlooks expansive gardens and woodland – where the passing of the four seasons is minutely registered in the landscape and where the proximity to nature will nourish and uplift the soul even before a meal begins.
Our commitment to good, real food made from scratch led us to open our Gourmet Store adjacent to Restaurant Les Fougères in 2003. Here you will find our large range of natural prepared foods and other fine foods, ingredients and gifts.
In 2013 we followed up on this expansion by building a Licensed Production Facility for the cooking of Les Fougères Natural Prepared Foods which are sold by wonderful retail partners across Quebec + Ontario. Our crusade with this initiative is to prove that prepared foods do not need to be junk food made with industrial ingredients and by industrial methods. Our mission is to get more made from scratch, healthy foods onto grocery store shelves. View nutritional info here.
