On a three day stay we chose to come here twice. The food was excellent the servers were great. It is a little off the tourist main drag and so a little quieter than other restaurants. The selection of cheeses and meats were excellent and the entrees superb. A great choice for relaxed dining in Quebec.

Good location and close to old Quebec in walking distance. Highly recommended to sit outside to enjoy the street view.

We appreciated the quiet well-lit atmosphere of the restaurant. We experienced wonderful service and had a delightful meal. The waiter helped us choose our entrees and a great wine to complement the meal. We enjoyed the food a great deal. The location was a short walk from the city gates and in a charming area. It was a bit hard... More

As an previous resident of quebec city, I've been a few times to the hobbit 20 years ago. This time I was with the whole family and we enjoyed this place even more. The quality of food and the friendly staff made the experience enjoyable. I strongly recommend if you are around one day.

We were looking for something to accommodate family of 5 late. We speak no French, but the menus are bilingual. Also have a child with a nut allergy, and the waiter & chef were very helpful. The service was really good. As for the food, I had bison ravioli. It was a bit bland. My sons pork flank w/vegetables was... More

We had a nice breakfast here, right close to our hotel (The Delta). Good staff, good food, great atmosphere. Would be even better for supper I would think. Has a nice offer of a second latte or espresso with your meal.

Based on recommendations from our hotel, we visited the close by Cafe Le Hobbit and were not disappointed. Our waiter appreciated our feeble attempts to speak French and gave us recommendations that turned out to be spot on. The home made soups and sandwiches were delicious and it was fun to people watch sitting outside.

I was recommended this place by my host which is located 5 min from where I stayed in the old town of Quebec. My friend and I went there for breakfast and we were very satisfied with our food. The croissant is so light and fluffy and so good that we spent our entire trip trying to find equally as... More

We were staying up the hill at the Hilton and wanted something close by. An easy walk (lots of hills) but went past numerous other places, and started to question my choice. However once we arrived and saw the decor, as well as the location and menu I was pleased. Small, quaint location made this an intimate meal of sorts.... More
