Wellness is always
on the menu
Christophe Perny and his team invite you to a true culinary experience in line with the location’s global health vocation. Enjoy healthy, varied menus created with a contemporary and original, approach based on conscious eating principles.
Anchored in the history of Le Monastère and its founding sisters, Le Restaurant offers healthy, northern-inspired cuisine which combines the well-known virtues of local and organic foods.
Our lunch plan
Colourful, flavourful dishes
At lunch time, Le Restaurant du Monastère offers a table d’hôte format. First, help yourself to our delicious soup of the day, as well as a variety of healthy salads. Then, choose from one of three daily dishes offered (fish, meat, or vegetarian/vegan). For dessert, we will serve you a small dessert verrine, as well as a cup of signature Le Monastère des Augustines herbal tea.
Our lunch chef loves to pamper our guests by creating menus featuring an array of options to suit every taste and need. Sustainable development being one of our main priorities, we favour local and organic foods, keeping seasonality and harvests in mind. Our dishes reflect seasonal ingredients, and—of course—our team’s inspiration.
Our dinner plan
Dishes dressed in earth tones
On top of following our global health vocation and striving to use resources responsibly—which has always been part of the Augustinian sisters’ lifestyle—our evening plan is also influenced by our chef Sylvestre Hervieux-Pinette’s native roots. His is a contemporary, and inventive cuisine inspired by our northern tradition.
Lichen, elderberry, seafood, game meats, green alder, birch syrup, sea pea, daisies—a true culinary adventure awaits! Served as tasting plates and including six courses, the Experience plan allows guests to sample several dishes throughout the evening and discover new flavours that are each more surprising than the last.
Our Experience plan is available from Tuesday to Saturday inclusively. On Sundays and Mondays, the evening meal consists of a healthy buffet made up of salads, vegetarian dishes, fish, and meat.
