AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Travel back in time to 1677, when this red-roofed house was first built, without sacrificing modern culinary comforts. Its name literally means "Old-time Canadians" and that's exactly what you'll get. Friendly servers clad in outfits suited to those olden days serve you massive helpings of properly-prepared homestyle New France dishes, including appetizers like traditional baked beans with molasses and bean pork, "rilettes de bison" with cranberry chutney, poutine or garlic escargots Jean-Michel (on a mushroom cap with garlic butter, bread crumbs, cognac, mustard, shallot and ham.) Mains include grilled pheasant, caribou and all sorts of maple syrup-infused, cholesterol-heavy fish and game dishes that might knock you off your diet, but will keep your belly warm all winter. Try their delicious cider.
