Again, we benefited from checking recommendations on tripadvisor. The restaurant was even better than we had been led to believe. My husband's beet salad with apples and roasted almonds was excellent; my trout tartare was outstanding. We shared a second appetizer of glazed duck drumsticks - yummy! Our main courses were both good: The duck duo (duck confit and a... More

We just went in for a quick snack. Had some wine with their combo cheese and meat platter. Platter was small as expected and was just ok. The service was below average and came across as pretentious. Food on the other tables looked good though but I'd try somewhere else next time.

Reasonably priced and huge selection. Vegetarian dishes, various meats, seafood, soups, salads, etc. service is amazing and the food beyond delicious. Gets quite busy though, so be prepared to wait or make a reservation. We were quite late so we only waited about 5 minutes before our table on the patio was ready.

I cant believe this restaurant, first the waitress sticks her hand in a glas of beer to remove something, then one of my potatoes weren't cooked very much and the taste of the potatoes certainly didn't live up to the description in the menu. When we went to pay she did already put the tip on the machine, how very... More

It was Saturday night and they were very busy but they found us 2 seats at the bar. The dishes have a modern slant - kidneys in a mustard sauce and duck cannelloni. The meals were so good that we had desserts and they did not disappoint. - vanilla mousse with blueberry compote and fillo pastry with poached pears &... More

A great way for a foodie to start their day out in Quebec City. The staff was gracious and helpful and the food was a perfect way to start off a February stay. It was so good we made it a point to not only start our long weekend here, but end it here for our last breakfast before departing... More

Had a supper here with my wife. We chose the gourmet side of the menu great fish plates and appetizers from marinated salmon to sweet bread. It was all very good very original and a good mix between veggies and protein...Poutines and hamburgers (giant size) are also on the menu and they looked delicious. Your choice... I really don't think... More
