Your restaurant in percé, Quebec
Maison Black Whale
Located in Percé, our restaurant is housed in the Black Whale House, a historic site where the arts and crafts of the Tip of the Gaspé Peninsula have been celebrated for many decades.
The Gaspesian culture in your plate!
The Black Whale House opened in 1936 and was founded by the Percé Craft Guild to promote the work of local artisans. The establishment also served as a community and cultural center for the inhabitants of the region at the time.
The heritage of the Black Whale House is at the heart of the experience we wish to offer our visitors. Indeed, our restaurant is a friendly meeting place, where everyone is invited to come and celebrate Gaspesian culture while enjoying a good food.
Seafood, local products and seasonal inspiration
Depending on the season, freshly caught seafood, vegetables from Gaspesian market gardeners and other local products are served to you in the form of refined dishes that honor the culinary treasures of our beautiful region.
For breakfast, come see us to taste our freshly baked pastries and discover our chef’s other morning inspirations. Delicious coffees, matchas and homemade chai teas are also waiting for you to start your day off on the right foot!
At aperitif time, come and sit down with friends over a glass of privately imported organic wine, a refreshing cocktail or a beer from a Gaspesian microbrewery. Our appetizers and dishes to share are also ideal for happy hour!
Located at 170 route 132, on the shores of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, our restaurant in Percé will make you experience the beauty of the region right at your table. With a view of Percé Rock and Bonaventure Island, you will enjoy an inspiring environment. Who knows, you might even see gannets flying overhead while you sip your coffee!
A 4 season culinary experience
At Nath & Compagnie, we are true lovers of the Gaspé Peninsula, and one of the things we care about most is encouraging the dynamism of the town of Percé throughout the seasons.
Just like our Cafe-Bookstore, our restaurant is open year-round to welcome you.
In setting up our restaurant at the Black Whale House, we wanted to create a destination for people passing through during the busy season, but also a privileged meeting place that the residents of Percé can enjoy in their daily lives.
The restaurant is open from Thursday to Sunday.
Local cuisine in the image of Gaspésie
With a menu composed of fresh food and local products, our restaurant offers a local cuisine that evolves with the seasons.
By favouring the supply of Gaspesian producers, we have access to the best ingredients of the region depending on the time of the year. Seafood, fish, cheese, fresh vegetables and other Gaspesian delights are lovingly prepared before they reach your plate.
Of course, succulent vegetarian dishes are also prepared by our chef for our veggie friends!
