Welcome ~ Bienvenue


THANK YOU! After such a great summer season, we are very happy and humbled with the news that, according to Tripadvisor, Le Maitre D' ranks among the top 1% of restaurants in Ontario. Thank you to all who made this possible. We truly appreciate all the support and encouragement.


Saturday, November 21st

From 6:00pm to 9:00pm


A night filled with jazz music. This is a first at Le Maitre D' and we thought to start it off with local and extremely talented musician Louis Lefaive. The focus of the evening will be jazz but I'm sure he'll play some folk favourites and special requests. We'll be serving Creole and Cajun dishes, Lousiana -style. There is no cover charge. Reservations recommended.


Le Maitre D is a personal, neighborhood style restaurant situated in the town of Penetanguishene, a picturesque bilingual community at the southern tip of beautiful Georgian Bay. The menu selection consists of regional cuisines of France and Canada. It features traditional French-Canadian recipes with a Metis influence – two cultures that are part of the fibre of Huronia. The menu includes a wide range of items to suit all tastes. We truly believe in the quality of each dish. From preparing all of our sauces, dressings and dips in house, to preparing each dish individually as it is ordered, the result are absolutely delicious homemade dishes. We invite everyone to savour gourmet cuisine that features local products and heritage. Come, experience our hospitality, enjoy the sounds of French music and the talent of our local artists!

The 45 seat restaurant serves lunch and dinner Wednesday to Saturday and brunch and dinner on Sunday.
