Activities/Attractions: L'Île d'Orléans and the Saint Lawrence River were discovered by French explorer and mariner Jacques Cartier in 1535. He gave the island it first name ... the "Island of Bacchus". He later changed his mind in 1536 and renamed it Isle d'Orléans in honour of the Duke of Orleans, the son of Francois 1, King of France.
This island was once known as Bacchus Island in honor of the god of wine for its abundant wild grapes. Now, Orleans Island is a popular destination for day trips. It takes about 20 minutes to drive there from Quebec City, and it is famous for its agricultural tourism ... depending on what time of the year you happen to be there, you can pick your own strawberries, raspberries, apples, and so on.
L'Île d'Orléans is 20 mi (32 km) long and 5 mi (8 km) wide, in the St. Lawrence at 15 minutes from Quebec City. It is connected with the mainland by a highway bridge (1935). There are six Parishes on the island and each of them has a rich history of the original founding families of New France.
There are also a few museums located on the island, including the Manoir Mauvide-Genest, dating back to 1734, and the Maison Drouin, the oldest house on the island. There is also a great chocolate factory, a small cheese factory, a winery, a bakery, some really great restaurants, and numerous arts & crafts shops.
Le Moulin de Saint-Laurent offers an invitation to a romantic, historic and relaxing restaurant experience.
General Information: Welcome to The Moulin de St-Laurent Chalets and Restaurant on Orleans Island (l’le-d’Orléans) in Quebec ... a family business for more than twenty years. In December 1986, Yvon Premont , his sister Elise Premont and her husband, Jean-Victor Lachance purchased this historic building. The first objective is and always has been to continue tradition and hospitality, good wine and music; all within an enchanting and romantic setting.
A few years later the couple’s two daughters, Anne and Julie joined the team. Lodging was started in 1996. Luxury, riverfront chalets offer a unique concept; dining in the restaurant, accommodation and breakfast in the chalets facing the spectacular waves of the St-Lawrence. Nothing could be better than a short getaway or long stay. Tradition, quality, heritage, relaxation and conviviality; these are some of the aspects that mark this honourable institution, Le Moulin de St-Laurent.

"This beautiful restaurant is right next to a small waterfall and along the main road. It's full name is Le Moulin de Saint-Laurent the menu is French the food and service terrific. Treat yourself to the multi-course special for $35 so you can sample as much as possible. One in our group of six ordered the vegetarian meal which was a combination of perfectly cooked vegetables artfully presented on a plate alone with quiche. Wow. Stay on the island, there is a lot to see!"
