The food is magnificent, as is the service. The beer selection (especially the porter) is heavenly. While I've not had any of the wine offerings, I suspect they are great as well. Every time I'm in Sherbrooke I come to Antidote FoodLab! Given the quality of food, ambience of the restaurant, and top-notch service, the prices on the menu are reasonable, although not cheap.

AFL provides an excellent dinner. They take food very seriously and you will get a wonderful meal. The ambience is casual but the food is anything but. Deer Tartare was wonderful as was Paris-Brest. Lamb Shank and Yamachiche Pork were fantastic. We see that some folks have complained about service but our experience was excellent. Staff were well informed on the food and were able to provide meaningful advice. This is not a fast food restaurant but is a definite destination if you are interested in an enjoyable evening. Prices are reasonable for the offering.

My daughter and I had a little trouble finding the place but what a great experience. You would think the waiters had just left their lumberjack jobs to come and serve us dinner. The food took awhile but was amazing. Clearly made especially for you. The fish was cooked to perfection with a lovely light crispy batter. It melted in our mouths. The popcorn ice cream was unexpectedly wonderful.
