Small, quaint, delicious

Crowded and turning people away at the door on a Tuesday night. Great selection of appetizers and mains. Make reservations as there is not much seating and it is a hot spot.

This restaurant deserves a trip to Quebec city just to eat here! I love my food and have eaten at many renowned restaurants in Canada, L'Affaire Est Ketchup belongs on your bucket list. Prices were very reasonable when I visited, you'd expect twice the price at other restaurants with the same quality and creativity!

Obviously, I found out about this place from Parts Unknown and had hyped it up in my mind. It definitely lived up to those expectations. It's an unpretentious, unassuming little place with amazing food. My partner and I went, and he is not even close to a foodie. I was worried about high prices and small portions, and him hating...

Found Est Ketchup on this site, it is a fun culinary experience night out. We don't speak French & that wasn't an issue, the servers are very nice & bilingual. The menu is on chalkboards, it can change at any time. We had the Venison Heart salad as an app, not sure what to expect but not overly flavourful. Had... More

Being from Portland, OR, I love little holes-in-walls with adventurous culinary artists and a full bar. And this fills the bill. No need to get all dressed up because your server, the staff and most of the patrons will be in tee shirts and shorts. This is a great little kick-back and have some amazing food restaurant.

I went here because reading one of the reviews, I saw they have bone marrow. I am a bone marrow affecionado, I will go to any place that serves them. Unfortunately, the night we came, there was no bone marrow! It turns out, they do not have a set menu. The menu for the day is written up in a... More

Let's get one thing straight. This is not a "chic" restaurant. If you did not know about it, you could walk by it and think this is a little restaurant serving hot-dogs and hamburgers. But you would be mistaken. The food served at L'Affaire Est Ketchup is first class. Servings are very imaginative. For example, we had an entrée of... More

L'Affaire Est Ketchup is a standout restaurant choice in Quebec City that's all about unmatched kitchen love and comfortable and friendly dining room service. The edgy street scene and eclectic vibe complement remarkable ingredients, tasty combinations and the chef's conviction to prepare each dish with a nod to freshness and innovation. We know. We literally watched him from our perch... More

Can't recommend this restaurant enough! The fun starts with the amazing description of the food by the waiter that makes you want to eat everything on the menu. And then the food comes and it's even better than you thought! The ingredients they use are mostly produced in Québec, they serve some of the best beers by microbreweries, the staff... More

I enjoy Quebec city for the finest restaurant in the country. I discovered that restaurant last night and it was for us, we were five, an other proof of what I wrote. A little warm place, staff very friendly, and the cuisine can make jaleous the best restaurant in France. Each year we go to Europe, and objectively, we are... More
