You know how when you travel your legs give out in the afternoon? Well a cappuccino and a pastry at a small table allows you lots of time to relax and sit and watch the people getting off the ferries and the tour busses. We went through the Petit Cochon Dingue (the Nutty Little Pig) and were just amazed. They... More

Quebec has beautiful restaurants but they can also be very pricey. If you are looking for a quick lunch and are budget conscious try this place.

We had an early dinner at Le Petit Cochon Dingue. While the pork chop was above average, the burgers were plain and dry. The service was OK. In general I would not recommend this place.

We went there for lunch on a busy weekend. You have to line up to order your food like a cafeteria. There is no room if the line is more than 10 people, so people are just crammed together. Food at lunch was okay, I suspect it is better at dinner.

Went for a walk about the city and chanced upon this place for dinner. Had a bottle of wine with a main course each. I had the steak frites, and all the food was good quality and delicious. The restaurant had plenty of charm and service was good. Recommend this place instead of the restaurants in the center of the... More

This is the place when you're finally burned out by $30 main dishes with $20 appetizers and all subject to the 15% tax, plus say a 15% tip. You use a tray, pick a sandwhich ($7-$8) an they heat it for you. Don't expect much more than ham & cheese, roast beef, pizza slices, but those are plentiful and delicious,... More

Don't be deterred by the long line, it moves quickly! We enjoyed a delicious lunch on the patio. The salad and sandwich option was perfect and we're not talking about a boring ham and cheese! There are multiple salad and sandwich combinations making it easy to please everyone. This was a wonderful treat after a morning of walking around La... More

Visiting in the top tourist season in such a high-profile location, it was inevitable that this place would be crowded and it was quite packed. Justifiably, the food is delicious and it is in a prime location. The desserts were really the standouts here, and some people were getting the desserts for takeout. Also we really liked the grilled cheese... More

We've visited Quebec City in June. It was our second visit to this restaurant. This time we've stopped for a take-out of carrot cake and coffee. The carrot cake is simply the best we've ever tried. It's just right! Not too sweet, not too heavy icing. Simply delicious. Next time we're in town, we'll be back!

This restaurant has two entrances. We entered at lunchtime from the higher entrance in Le Petite Champlain, which means descending a steep set of stairs to the restaurant. It was raining outside but the stairs were not obviously wet and there were no signs warning of wet floors. Half way down the stairs my daughter slipped & fell part way... More
