Arrived at about 6pm on a Saturday evening without a reservation and were immediately shown a table. Menu is a bit on the carnivore side but still one chicken, fish and vegi selection. Appetizers and entrees were excellent; well presented and very good. Amounts were generous, one of the increasingly rare times one can leave a good restaurant feeling fed.... More

Lovely quaint location by the river in a renovated railway station. gentle background music, linen tablecloths, great service. How perfect. But wait - there's more! The food is out of this world. Every dish was excellent. Here's the kicker: the flavours just keep coming at you in wonderful waves across your palate, one surprise after another. And just when you... More

I had looked forward to our day trip to the Gatineau area & having lunch at the Cafe Pot-Au-Feu in Wakefield. The setting was storybook perfect! The blue & white converted train station was situated along the Gatineau River with hillsides of trees that were a patchwork of green, red, burgundy, yellow, & orange. Not quite in full autumn dress... More

Just a thirty minute drive north of Ottawa lies the village of Wakefield. Despite its small size it has a lot to offer. For one thing this area boasts a thriving art community with the village at its centre. The main road through town hugs the shore of the Gatineau River. It's lined with colorful shops, restaurants and music venues.... More

Went to the Pot au Feu yesterday with a friend and was genuinely impressed with the service and most importantly, the food. The server was on top of her game and never missed a thing. She was very knowledgeable explaining the dishes and offered suggestions. We both had the quiche with salad and both were delicious. Most definitely Worth a... More

We decided to lunch very last minute and the food was exceptional. We had great service and the price was palatable. I happily recommend this restaurant and I will return again ASAP.

This cafe is located in a converted old railroad station. We went there on a sunny afternoon in May for a late (and light) lunch. We opted for the "al fresco dining experience" [ my words] on the deck that probably used to be the platform to board the train, away from the main road and adjacent to the railway... More

We visited Wakefield recently- what a quaint and charming town - and had lunch at the Cafe Pot au Feu. This used to be the train station for the area and it is therefore, in a wonderful building with the extant tracks running beside the patio. Could not be more charming. The patio is lovely and provides a view of... More
