A Reason We Love Old Quebec

During our vacation in Quebec City we celebrated my wife's birthday at the Conti Caffe. We were so appreciative that the manager honored our request to reserve a romantic table by the window - the best seat in the house. We started with the $18 appetizer sampler, one each of crusted Parmesan... read more

We fell upon Conti Caffe on our first night in Quebec. We were fortunate enough to find a table thanks to a cancelled reservation. The food was fabulous, I can highly recommend the Snow Crab risotto, cooked by a chef who clearly understands seafood. Service was friendly and efficient, the wine list comprehensive and the portion sizes more than enough.... More

6 of us had a 6 PM dinner reservation (the only reservation time available). It's a short walk from the Fairmont Hotel. The menu was varied & our service was good. Since some of us ordered soup, it took quite a while before dinner was served. We had Spaghetti Carbonara which was Excellent & the Tomato, Bocconcini & Basil Salad... More

Conti is very close to the chateau in upper town and is only 2-3 blocks from funiculaire. We had lunch there. I had the soup du jour which was asparagus soup and was very good. I had a hamburger which was above average. I had dessert, I had a chocolate cake with raspberry which was fantastic! Not too sweet, just... More

We loved this restaurant so much we went back twice. The food was excellent. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. Even though it is on Rue Saint Louise, we felt it was not a touristy restaurant. The pasta dishes were wonderful. Two thumbs up!

THis restaurant was recommended by a tour guide for our last night in Quebec City. We had already had some spectacular meals but this out did all of them. The atmosphere is upscale and romantic. We had reservations and were seated immediately by the manager. I had the cod and my wife had the salmon romesco. Both were perfectly prepared... More

Wondering street of Quebec, we randomly selected this cute spot for lunch, however were not fully satisfied with the service and quality of food. I would say way to expensive for what they have to offer!

Great place, with or without the kids. Tasty Italian cuisine on St-Louis street in Old Quebec, which is great spot for tourists.

Wonderful upscale restaurant. Loved the interior design. The space is intimate and although we were seated close to the next table, it was not distracting at all. I had the celery soup du jour and the spaghetti primavera. Both were very fresh, flavorful and perfectly presented. My husband had a salad and the salmon. He's still raving about the wonderful...

Cosmopolitan meets old world charm in a perfect pairing. A beautifully decorated restaurant with impeccable service and even better food.
