Restaurants to discover!
The team working to promote the region of greater Saint-Hyacinthe, while being curious, creative and passionate, is also (and mostly) composed of foodies. As our town is filled with unique restaurants for you to discover (which we like to call “Just-heres”) and as such, we would like to share with you our favourite restaurants and mouth-watering meals.
Since we are located in a very fertile agricultural region, which is even oftentimes referred to as Quebec’s pantry, we are lucky enough to have a very high concentration of quality fresh and local products which our restaurants gladly use on their menus.

Les Fourchettes Vagabondes
A modern and refined cuisine to treat your tastebuds!
Photo: Les Fourchettes Vagabondes
A menu written on blackboard made from ingredients straight from the market and that changes with the harvests, a modern decor and an ambiance perfect for a business meeting or an evening with friends, what more could we ask for? Of course, every meal also has a wine pairing.
The “1855” 5 oz. grilled flank steak, reduction au jus made with Corriveau beer served with fries and seasonal vegetables.
Wine pairing: La Villa Real Crianza, 2015, Castilla-La-Mancha, Spain.
“The flank steak was perfectly cooked, tender, juicy and most of all tasty. Served with homemade fries and a generous vegetable portion (which were still slightly crunchy), everything is delicious!”
From our family to yours!
This portuguese restaurant is family-owned and from its doors emanates a delicious aroma of savoury, charcoal-grilled meats throughout the area. The warm ambiance makes it enjoyable to eat one of their generous combo platters.
Combo 4 – Panelo trio
“A sharing platter that will give you a tour of their specialties: the portuguese sausage (chouriço), the marinated pork (bifanas) and, of course, the grilled chicken. Next time, we will definitely try the mediterranean trio, a mix of sardines, calamari and cod croquettes. The staff is very nice as well!”
La Vie La Vie Comptoir Santé
Vegan and vegeterian food: local and made with love

It has recently come into fashion to eat healthily and respectfully towards nature. This restaurant and ready-to-eat counter offers vegan and vegetarian meals made from local products, all in a warm decor. With a vast array of drinks to choose from, ranging from green smoothies to healthy “slushies”, you will certainly feel reinvigorated.
General Tso’s – I can’t believe it’s not chicken! Made with shiitake, soy, a gingery sauce, vegetables and grilled sesame, served with rice and quinoa.
« It’s excellent! A texture and taste just as good as the recipe made with chicken. Everything is well seasoned, and it is also a generous plate. »
Italian-inspired cuisine in a modern ambiance.

Italian restaurant where every plate, from the appetizer to the dessert, is paired with a wine. A table d’hôte menu, a 4-course meal, is elaborated every week by the chef with seasonal flavours. A classic on the menu: the grain-fed veal with the Pepe parmigiana or even marsala! They also offer a generous brunch on Sundays.
Duck and raspberry poutine
“Yes, you’ve read this right! A surprisingly fitting mix! The fries are perfect, and the raspberry sauce is both fascinating and delicious!”
For your tastebuds’ and your eyes’ delight.
A warm and cheery atmosphere, modern and inventive plates such as tartares (with scallops, duck and rabbit), pasta covered in cheese or even delicious black blood pudding, a meal to discover.
Their black blood pudding, on the menu at the moment, is served with caramelized apples and a bacon goat cheese.
“This classic is particularly well executed at L’Espiègle with its very crunchy crust! Harmoniously paired with homemade fries and mayo, it’s a delight!”
La Baboche – Bistro à broue
Emotions and local products

Creative plates filled with local flavours and paired with an exhaustive choice of beers. With friends, share a couple of appetizers, a charcuterie platter ou even a full tarte tatin. Why not try the Salon d’Albina’s menu, named so in honor of the woman who inspired the name of the restaurant. She sold “baboche” (illegal moonshine) to ensure the survival of her family.
