Welcome ~ Bienvenue


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.
