Opened in 1995, La Piazzetta Chicoutimi quickly earned a prime place in the hearts of local foodies, to the point that it has almost become an institution. Its extraordinary location may have something to do with this. Judge for yourself: nestled in the heart of downtown, in the old train station, on the bank of the Saguenay fjord widely hailed as magnificent if not fantastical, La Piazzetta boasts a spectacular setting, a stone’s throw from the marina and the Old Port.
To welcome its guests, La Piazzetta Chicoutimi offers a warm, contemporary decor, enhanced by the unique cachet of its central fireplace, a wonderful spot to relax. And of course the excellent service that the team provides and the unparalleled welcome of the owner, Manon Larouche, have been instrumental in establishing its extraordinary reputation.
Once summer arrives, the twenty-some seats on the terrace offer a delightful view of the marina, nonetheless endowed with the privacy offered by the surrounding hedge, which provides such a lovely buffer from the immediate surroundings that you have the impression of dining abroad.
