Le Hatley Restaurant at Manoir Hovey, reflects the Chef's passion for the region's history, its bounty, and its natural beauty. Drawing on his French Canadian roots, Chef Alexandre Vachon serves a refined nature inspired cuisine paying homage both to his heritage and to the land and producers around him.
''Where the produce comes from is important, we are curious, we hand pick, we grow from seed, we have a relationship with the producers and with the land. We are respectful and have patience, we bring nature to your table. The quality of the products is part of the recipe.''
Chef Alexandre Vachon's culinary philosophy celebrates the ingredients that are abundant in our region's rivers, lakes, forest and fields.
The abundance of birch trees at Manoir Hovey makes it ideal for birch syrup and vinegar production. Le Hatley is quite possibly the only restaurant in Canada to engage in this practice.
Spring is also the season for lamb, raised in the great outdoors in Quebec and a favourite of the Chef.
The nutrient rich St. Lawrence River, which flows through Quebec to the eponymous Gulf, produces a profusion of seafood, shellfish and fish.
Alexandre and his team are passionate about foraging on the property grounds. In season, you are invited to follow them and learn about wild edibles.
In addition to the abundant local production of everyday organic produce, Le Hatley’s menus are also enhanced by Quebec Sea Plants in summer months, such as Sea Asparagus, Sea Spinach and fresh Seaweed.
The Chef is enthusiastic about a variety of locally raised free range poultry. Another highlight of the menu is the duck and the exceptional foie gras that the chef gets from La Canardière.
Notable products from this season are house made Winter Harvested Apple Vinegar as well as other staples that come directly out of our Birch and Sumac Vinegar cellar and many in house dried products such as mushrooms, dry seaweed, sea lettuce, root vegetables, winter squash and the Chef’s own winter stored carrots.
Boasting the local bounty of the province of Quebec, growing, foraging and picking only what is needed, working closely with local farmers and producers, a dinner at Le Hatley is truly a unique culinary experience.

My career started with half a decade of hotel school in Montpellier followed by two years of specialization as a sommelier. During my studies, I also took time to travel across France to observe and learn from the greatest wine makers in the country. Over the years, I have accumulated a consequent amount of experience in prestigious restaurants and worked in world-renowned wineries. I joined the Manoir Hovey team in 2020 to share my passion for wine and connect with guests, it is one of the most rewarding elements of my profession.
After a five year in hotel management at Château-Thierry, followed by three years of practice in a bistro referenced in the Michelin guide, I moved to Paris where I gained valuable experience, notably in prestigious establishments such as Le Burgundy and Le Bristol. I then seized an opportunity to work at Lympstone Manor, in Devon County in the south of England, where I had the privilege of working for several years under Chef Michael Caines in this incredible Michelin-star establishment. In search of new challenges and with a desire to establish myself in Quebec, I moved to the Eastern Townships to join the team at Manoir Hovey where I have now been working for several years.
After having studied the art of hospitality in France, I spent 10 years in the UK working in Michelin starred restaurants for renowned chefs such as Marcus Wareing, Michael Caines and Joel Robuchon. Catering is a profession I am truly passionate about. I chose this career to combine my passion for wine and gastronomy with my desire to please and create memories. My role and that of my team is to highlight the work of the chef, to accompany and carry his message. I look forward to welcoming you at Le Hatley for your next culinary experience.
