Best most creative meal I've had in a long time

The knowledge and enthusiasm of the wait staff was incredible, and was only surpassed by the food itself. Our waiter gave a detailed description of every dish, made excellent wine recommendations, and was very friendly. It was obvious that he loved the food. All five of us agreed that every dish served was absolutely delicious. If we're in Quebec City... More

What a gold mine. What shocks you is that this place is run by only 2 people Julian & Phil in the kitchen. Interesting food and wine selections. I agree with previous ratings, you must have a reservation!

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
