A family story
In 1979, Norbert Gavina moved to St-Bruno to found one of the first great restaurants in the Montérégie, La Rabastalière. The place first offers the French classics of cuisine and a formal service that make its reputation. Later, his younger son, Marc Olivier joined the team as co-owner.
Thanks to his vision, combined with the father's expertise, the company is entering a new era. If the classics remain, the kitchen has adopted a more contemporary tangent and the new service offers a more relaxed atmosphere. The place remains however one of the rare places in Quebec which still practices the service of preparing classic French food directly at your table.
The La Rabastalière experience
You will find all our classics on the "A la carte menu". Caesar salad prepared at your table, pieces of meat cut in front of you, or our spectacular flambé desserts. It is the menu of choice for lovers of grilled meats, seafood and rich dishes that make the reputation of French cuisine.
Our table d'hôte benefits from French know-how, but everything has a more contemporary and international flair. Here, all our food is homemade. Our dishes are prepared with first quality fresh products and many elements are cooked to the minute to offer you the best dining experience.
This allows us to offer vegetarian options to those who wish, as well as our customers who suffer from food allergies and intolerances, the opportunity to enjoy our gastronomic pleasures.

Our wine collection is carefully prepared by our sommelier. The majority of our selection comes from private import houses. Discover our exclusive products and ask our sommelier to advise you. Let him know your tastes or take advantage of his expertise to compose the ideal wine pairing.
