Taste your vacation, taste the capitaine homard!

Since 1968, the Capitaine Homard has been catering to seafood lover’s needs, offering  a menu that revolves almost entirely around the many ways lobster can be savoured. It is our great pleasure to welcome you at our table.

Every year, lobster fishing season begins at the end of April in Gaspésie and that is when the Capitaine Homard also casts off moorings.

Many regular patrons, travelers and tourists make a special trip to enjoy their first lobster of the year… and many others afterwards. This long tradition has given our restaurant its warm and friendly atmosphere.

We hope you will also appreciate our specialities and the unique gaspesian ambiance of our restaurant.

Freshness guaranteed

Did you know that we hold over 5000 pounds of lobster in our crawls? All this thanks to an elaborate pumping system 1000 feet offshore that supplies the crawls with sea water.

This allows us to always have 1 to 5 pounds lobsters, depending on what we have inbound. Make sure you check the information board when you come in the restaurant to see how much our biggest lobster in the crawl weights.


We inform you that the restaurant does not take reservations in high season, from July 8th. This with the ultimate goal of meeting the largest number of customers. Your satisfaction is our priority. Thank you for understanding our policy put in place to simply give the chance to the greatest number of customers to have access to our popular tables directly at the window overlooking the river. In case of waiting, a new lounge area has been created to make the experience more enjoyable.

* For groups of 10 or more, please arrive before 5:15 pm to make sure you have a place.

Thank you for your understanding.
