For owners Niva and Steeve “Wadohandik” Gros-Louis, having travelled around the globe sharing the richness of Huron-Wedndat Culture and traditions, the idea of creating Sagamité restaurant was born from the desire to share our beautiful Culture at home in Wendake. The Sagamité restaurant opened in 1999 and since then we have been welcoming locals and visitors from all over the world who want to discover more about Huron-Wendat Culture through an immersive gastronomic experience.
Our restaurant blends together history, crafts, art and gastronomy; Sagamité is a place which promotes reconciliation through meeting and sharing food and conversation over the table. We are centrally based in Old Wendake, just a few steps away from the enchanting Kabir Kouba waterfall and the many boutiques by the St Charles River.
We called the restaurant Sagamité after the delicious home-grown ‘Three Sisters’ squash, corn and red bean soup enriched with game that’s at the heart of Wendat culinary culture. Our house speciality the Yatista (fire), also known as the Gallows shares the importance of fire to the Wendat People; our Ancestors used to communicate with the Creator through fire, talking, sharing and enjoying meals around its warming flames.
This unique blend of Culture, history, food and tradition, surrounded by authentic unique Indigenous arts and crafts is why dining at Sagamité is a unique experience. Enjoy your meal!
