I read numerous reviews about Le Parlementaire Restaurant inside the Quebec Legislative building and decided to inquire about having a dinner there for a group of 100 in conjunction to an association convention I was organizing. From the very first call right through to the conclusion of our event, I cannot say enough about this place. First of all the... More

The Parliament Building is worth a visit just to see the great exterior - all the statues of Quebec's influential figures. If you have time the tour is just under 1 hour and interesting in that Quebec Senators abolished their own assembly by voting themselves out of a job. If only we could get are a Federal Senators to do... More

The 30-minute tour of the Parliament Building was a definite highlight of our visit to Quebec City. The guide provided a lot of very interesting historical information. The interior of the building is spectacularly beautiful. The gardens are interesting and very pretty as well - with herbs and vegetables (for their restaurant), as well as flowers. Also, there is a... More

Before the tour and after passing through security the waiting area had many different facts about the seats of all 125 members MNAs in the legislature and there respective ridings/parties although it was written in french only. The english language tour was quite informative and I had all my questions answered on the tour.

Nice building. Good place for pictures. We did not go inside, however, we walked all around it as we were en route elsewhere. Should have stopped in to check-the-scene.

Very interesting to see that Canadian politics were based on British democracy (from 100yrs ago). Lovely tour (free) around the building with a very helpful guide. Visited during a holiday period so unfortunately the restaurant was closed.

We enjoyed taking the tour of Parliment and learning about the Canadian government. We had a very knowledgable guide. There are tours in French or English. We walked around the grounds while we waited for our tour and saw the beautiful gardens. Many fresh herbs. We had been told that they serve a good lunch so we decided to eat... More

If you hold any interest in politics, take the time to go on a free tour of the Quebec Parliament. A beautifully-appointed building reflecting the history and French influence in this Province.
