Nice brunch

We went there on a Sunday morning, we waited 10 min to be seated, you should make a reservation depending on the time you want to go. The food was very good, the waiter took time to explain us what was gluten free. They have menus for children.

This has been my choice for a good breakfast. The menu offers an array of flavorfull plates that capture the best of the local offerings. The bowl of cappucino accompanies this experience well. There are 2 restaurants, both worth it.

Sunday morning and the place was packed. The food and the service were excellent. Price is reasonable for this area. Just make sure you arrive early to avoid the long lineup.

I don't know what happened. We ate dinner here last year and it was quite good so went back yesterday for dinner on this years trip to Quebec. It was quite possibly the worst meal that my husband and I have ever had at a restaurant. It was, in fact, inedible. We had the waiter ( who was very nice)... More

This was such a cute little restaurant right in the middle of le petite champlain. The food was good and the service was excellent! Our waitress was so kind and her English was very good, which was a plus for us considering our French wasn't. My husband ordered the sausage dish that was served with spicy mustard which was very...

The perfect breakfast place in food, atmosphere, service, and style. Really enjoyed it all... especially the breakfast poutine. Highly recommend.

Perfect for a brunch. Maybe there's too much to wait and it's a bit overpriced, but it deserves to go anyway. Nice place, nice service. I will come back on my next visit.

We have visited Old Quebec City three times and have only been to Le Petit Couchon Dingue beside this slightly more formal restaurant due to lineups when we pass this restaurant. I say more formal only because Le Petit Couchon Dingue is more of a cafeteria type setting and this restaurant is a sit down restaurant with servers who take... More

English menus available, no problem with language with servers. Excellent food, great atmosphere, wonderful staff. You do need to go downstairs for bathroom so be aware of this. Not a problem for those with full mobility. I had Caesar salad with real back bacon bits and Parmesan cheese. There was a slight taste that may have been anchovies in dressing... More

While in Quebec City in September-2014, we had dinner at Cochon Dingue on the recommendation of a friend. This restaurant is in the lower old city - it's very charming, with lots of exposed brick and stone work. The tables are rustic and it's always busy even in the off season. Our server was very friendly and helpful with the... More
