The menu at Aux Anciens Canadiens is traditional Nouvelle France Quebecois cuisine — heavy on the meat, maple — and money.
The atmosphere at Aux Anciens Canadiens caters to the tourist — think servers dressed in period costume.
You also get a bit of local history with your meal — the restaurant is situated in the oldest house in the city, which dates to 1675 (just look for the bright red roof).
The more economical way to go is the $20 or so lunch menu, which includes a glass of wine or beer, soup, entrée and dessert.
The authentic Lac St. Jean meat pie made with wild game meats will turn you into a Quebecois carnivore for sure.
