Regional Flavors

Travel responsibly and sustainably


On the Îles de la Madeleine, take the opportunity to discover the culinary talents of the Madelinots. The local cuisine is renowned for its excellence, particularly its wonderful seafood dishes.

A Gourmet Destination

Lobster is a traditional dish, as everyone knows, and is shipped thousands of kilometres to gourmets in the farthest reaches of the planet who appreciate its fine flavour. And the lobster is not all we have to offer. Try our other treasures from the sea: scallops, herring, mussels, crab and mackerel.

New businesses specialize in the transformation of local products. While you are in the Islands, many of these delicious items will be offered to you: raw milk cheeses, aromatic oils, beer or traditional beverages made from berries? Enjoy them, they are wonderful!

Island restaurants have developed "regional tables" using many of these local foods. You will find everything from traditional cooking to fine cuisine, from the most exquisite gourmet table tot the simplest snack bar.

You will enjoy experimenting with the unique flavours of our expertly prepared Island cuisine. Look at our page Where to eat to find our restaurants.
