Just what we were looking for on our last night in Quebec City: excellent food with attentive service in an unpretentious setting. We sat on the terrace and watched the tourists wander by. The Bistro du Cap is a small husband/wife operation. Madame manages the front of the house; Monsieur handles duties in the kitchen. We had baked cod and... More

My husband and I were looking for an intimate restaurant to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We found this restaurant quite by chance and had the most fabulous experience from the moment we walked through the door. The Hostess was charming (actually quite a character) and spoke to us in English with ease and pleasure. The Bistro is very small which... More

This bistro is postcard adorable. However, we found the waitstaff to go out of their way to be incredibly rude, and we are not fragile travelers in the least. Skip this bistro and go to one of the many others that offer equal charm plus kind and attentive employees.

Everything about Cafe Bistro du Cap is small - the restaurant, the menu, the number of staff (we counted 4 including the cooks). Every dish we ordered was excellent - bouillabaisse, beef cheeks bourgignon, steak, veal ravioli. The wine list is unfortunately too limited and doesn't live up to the food, but the service was very pleasant, and we enjoyed... More

My sister and I recently spend three days in Quebec City. We were looking for somewhere to dine late Monday afternoon August 18th and decided to choose amongst the restaurants on this street. We stopped to read the menu at this restaurant first and continued down the street. Undecided, we retraced our steps and saw a lady placing a sidewalk... More

You can tell the owners take pride in their place and their food. Simple, small menu, but expertly prepared and delivered efficiently without being rushed. Tight space, but great atmosphere.
