La Maison du Défricheur


Fine dining on the mountainside

Defined by a menu of creatively updated French dishes, La Maison du Défricheur is famous for its romantic ambiance and the attention to detail given to every dish. Chefs Jean-Louis Cottin and Hugo Paquette use seasonal products to transform traditional French cuisine into something uniquely Québécois. The rustic elegance of this Rigaud restaurant is sure to charm visitors from Montréal or further afield; for locals, La Maison du Défricheur will more than prove that an exquisite meal can easily be found without ever leaving the backyard.
Tempt yourself with the Maison’s artisanal chocolates, made to exacting European standards with the highest quality Cacao Barry products; that same chocolate is to be found in the restaurant’s epic home-made desserts. Treat yourself to one of the wines from their extensive wine list, or join them for one of their culinary escapades, when a special menu invites you to explore a new cuisine. The restaurant also designs special menus for holidays, so be sure to check back often. The uniquely-crafted menus will undoubtedly tempt you back!
