You enter to a kitchen and bakery where they are making everything fresh. A kind and calm-despite-the-crowds woman explained the menu to us and we ordered at the counter. The menu was small- which I like, as it indicated freshness- and had a variety of items. They also had a great selection of teas. I ordered a grilled cheese with... More

A nice little place in Old Quebec. We enjoyed that they had a few vegetarian options and that their staff was friendly to us.

How can a restaurant known for poutine be out of cheese curds!? I was offered shredded cheese as a substitute which I reluctantly agreed to. It was still good, but I was a bit disappointed, Excellent variety of beer and wine available. Fun atmosphere. Reservations highly recommended. I hope my next visit will include authentic poutine.

a chain most definitely but easy and fun with great outdoor seating. Wonderful service and nice location in the lower town. Good for kids and still fun and casual for adults.

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
