My Husband and I were in Quebec City, our first trip in 10 years without kids. We were looking for a restaurant that was close by our hotel and would be a good place to celebrate our 10th Wedding anniversary. We happened upon Le Cercle and we were very pleased. It was a great atmosphere and the food was amazing.... More

We stopped here for brunch on our last day in Quebec City as an alternative to our hotel and we were not disappointed. All four of us opted for "le grilled cheese" and it was served with homefries and a wonderful poached egg. In addition to the great coffee, it made for a filling and satisfying brunch. Service was attentive... More

Was there with my whole company colleagues and friends! it was a private event booked for us and we really had a great time! The wines served were fantastic, the starters/entres and the main course... everything was good. Its a fun place, excellent sound and our company band had a bash playing there for almost 2 hours!

On a Sunday night my family and I were looking for a place to eat before heading back to Montreal. Without reservations, they took the 5 of us in on the condition we would free the table within 1 1/2 hour for they had another reservations and were fully booked. The premises are nothing like you would expect in Quebec:... More

A really cool resto/cafe/bar/venue all in one, the decor is new york loft meets ground floor update! This is the place to become a regular and if your lacking inspiration a place to visit for some rehabilitation. Food is great and staff are friendly along with a style not uncommon to quebec.

We were in Quebec City for our honeymoon and we were looking for a restaurant that would serve modern québécois food because we were a little bistro-ed out. We found this place on TA and the good reviews were backed by good reviews on google and yelp. We were sooooo disappointed. The music was a little loud and a projector... More

My husband and I were visiting Quebec City for our three year anniversary and I saw this restaurant listed in our Frommer's book. It was my pick for our "anniversary dinner" and it couldn't have been any better. We chose their Table d'hôte and it was amazing! It left us satisfied, yet craving more! We also took them up on...

If you are looking for a stylish urban restaurant where real Quebec City residents dine, Le Cercle is it. This modern and hip restaurant provided us with the most delicious and innovative food on our 10-day tour of Quebec and New Brunswick. This is not haute cuisine; rather, Le Cercle re-interprets traditional Canadian favorites, like halibut served with a delicious... More

We found this place on line and it was close to our hotel but it was seemingly far enough away from the tourist crowd of Old Qubec to get more of an authentic Quebec experience. The crowd was younger and the place was packed and had a cool vibe to it. We had made a reservation and had a good... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the lovely Dominique at the Fluevog store and we were so happy she sent us there. The ambiance was youthful and fun and the staff were attentive and knowledgeable about wine and the menu. The food was beyond words. It was some of the best food we have ever tasted. That type of...
