Driving into the city from Montreal when we were diverted due to a local protest over budget cuts in the province. Have been many times to Québec City before but we were now hitting streets I didn't know. Finally, after going in a circle and hitting Rue St. Jean my wife said park the car and lets get a drink...

Group of 8, without reservations, but were seated in the side area with another large group. A little loud with the birthday party going on. Didn't particularly the entre. Most other had soup and salads. The Cafe was highly recommended and had a waiting crowd. Probably more suited for a French palat.

This is a locals specialty. The wait staff is great, funny, and very helpful if you have a little patience to get by the "FC" thing. We ordered a bottle of wine the server hadn't tried so we all did it together - and then he did the ordering WONDERFUL Remember this is pretty much a locals place but an... More

We had tried this restaurant previously on the advice of a fellow from our B & B. The food was very good on our first visit and the service was very good as well. Everything was so good in fact that on our last night in Quebec city our group decided to go back. It was very busy when we... More

Le Hobbit is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, but I only have sampled the breakfast: twice. I went one morning while my wife was elsewhere, and liked it so much that I came back a day or so later so that she could try it as well. On both occasions, I ordered "L'Omelette Delicieuse," a kitchen-sink omelette creation. On... More

Dropped in here one rainy night with baby in stroller. Staff could not have been more accommodating, moving tables to seat us. The food was really tasty and reasonably priced. Recommended,

I have been living in Quebec city for a while now and have walked past Le Hobbit most days. It exudes a wonderfully welcoming atmosphere and I'm so glad I found the time to visit! My friend and I went on a Tuesday night for dinner. I was initially surprised at how few tables there were, however decided that the... More

We went to The Hobbit for lunch and the food was amazing. The portions were good. They give you a free sample of sweet breads and the coffee is included in the price. We had the grilled cheese and omelette which came with a generous portion of fruit. The prices were very reasonable and the service was very friendly and... More

We stumbled upon this oddly named gem of a restaurant on a recent trip to Quebec City (we saw no connection to the Tolkein character or books). We were trying to avoid another high priced hotel breakfast and had ventured out of the old city when we passed the Hobbit and decided it looked more local than touristy and offered... More

The food was very good. I had the rabbit confit which had great flavor, the port and blueberry reduction was a nice complement.
