The perfect place. Small and charming. Divine food, great wine, festive atmosphere. Friendly staff. One of the place to be in Quebec city. Make a reservation, it's always crowded!

My boyfriend took me to Quebec City for my Birthday. We were deciding whether to go to Le Continental or L'Affaire Est Ketchup to celebrate (got the ideas from our beloved Anthony Bourdain) and ended up going to L'Affaire. I wasn't into the stuffiness of Le Continental and all the tourists. L'Affiare is off the beaten path, it's in a... More

I went to L'Affaire est Ketchup when my sister and I went on a short trip to Quebec City, which is about a 4 hour trip from our hometown in Maine. We went in August 2013. I had seen it on Anthony Bourdain, and when he raves about something on his show, I am pretty confident that it will be... More

This is a very small place and very relaxed. The menu is on a chalk board. Full bar and wines. The food was just out of this world. Everything was fresh and local; the chefs create wonder in the smallest kitchen ever. The prices were moderate and if we lived there we would be regulars. Most people spoke French but... More

This is a tiny tiny restaurant. Don't even think of going without a reservation. And it will help if you prefer adventurous food. I don't know how they put together what they did for our group of 7. Everything was perfect. No one had a single dish they did not rave about. Wines were chilled exactly right. Our group did... More

Off the beaten path small informal place they cook on a kitchen stove and assemble the plates of food in front of your eyes in the open kitchen. Great owner and young staff. Wine list is a bookshelf of bottles with price tags. Impressive but pricey wines. Food may be the best ever eaten. Lamb shank and elk steak were... More

We decided to eat here at the suggestion of our hotel when we told them we wanted to have dinner in St. Roche. Were it not for their recommendation, we probably would not have given L'Affaire a second thought as we walked by their nondescript storefront. We entered the small place, seeing about eight tables in front of a tiny... More
