Maybe we were expecting a bit too much... The food was good but nothing out of the ordinary. We are usually not bothered by this kind of decor (like they really have not spent a dollar on it!) but they have taken it a bit far. The place is small, very noisy and we came out of there with the... More

I think L'Affaire est Ketchup means "The deal is done" in Quebec and I'd say it also means you'll be well taken care of in this restaurant. Make sure to book a table in advance, the place is small (less than 20 tables, vintage furniture) and very popular. When we had dinner there my boyfriend and I were sitting close... More

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
