Festin du Gouverneur
Located in the Fort on Île Ste-Helène, this child-oriented attraction blends traditional Quebecois food with a rousing rendition of the province's history. Music plays a large part in the festivities, with everything from bagpipes to traditional Quebec folk singing; kids will hardly know they are learning anything. Audience members participate in all the activities, and the entire four-course dinner and show lasts about two hours. Reservations are essential. Prices are CAD39 adults; CAD18.85 for children under 12.
This is a great dinner-show suitable for all ages, perfect for family events and/ or group activity specially. As you enter the Fort Ste-Helene, a costumed staff awaits you, gives an introduction to the banquet you reserved for. In the main dining hall that was once occupied by soldiers during the British times in Montreal, more costumed staff awaits your presence and guides you to your own respective table and as guests pack the main hall, the banquet begins.
The show's amazingly in French and English; musical and comedy. Artists are all in costumes for the era that's being re-enacted even waitresses. The dinner's a four course meal with a choice of main course. I personally love the salmon since that was my choice that evening but as I tasted the chicken breast, it was deliciously well done. I guess we'll leave this one up to your choice, chicken or fish? Serving is also synchronized with the show.
If you're looking for a different way to enjoy dining, this is the place to be. Lots of fun and well fed! Great job Festin Du Gouverneur!
I really loved the Festin du Gouverneur and I know my friends did as well! In our class, we were studying about history, and important happenings in Quebec/Montreal. When we got to the Festin du Gouverneur, everything was related! We learned so much! So much, in fact, that I am doing a project about it in class, using the information I learned from there. The only problem is that when I ate the sugar pie, (which was YUMMY!) the only refreshment I had was coke in my class at the time. The other option was water. These aren't very helpful when you want to have something non sweet(the water was a bit better) to wash the pie down with! Other then that however, everything was GREAT!! : )
This church, designed by Quebec architect Victor Bourgeau and built between 1870 and 1894, is an exact one third replica
of St Peter's Basilica in Rome. Set among the bleak skyscrapers of downtown, it makes a particularly striking sight. ...
