Benedictine a la Florentine! Nuff said.

We ate breakfast here twice, because we liked it so much. It is small, clean and elegant. Would definitely go back should we return to Quebec someday.

I had the Duo Canard and Onion Soup and must say that it is one of the best meals I have had in a long time. Everything was perfectly prepared! Service was exceptional! Beautifully decorated restaurant! If you're looking for something unique, you need to try this restaurant!

We were referred to this restaurant by our hotel and we were not disappointed. We went there for lunch and had the layered grilled vegetable and quinoa dish which was fantastic. Our waiter was very friendly and when he found out we didn't speak french promptly gave us an english menu. Our experience was very nice and we would definitely... More

Our concierge highly recommended that we go outside the wall and try some true Quebec/Canadian food at Le Hobbit and we are glad that we braved the sub zero temps To discover this little gem. My husband had the bison and enjoyed it thoroughly. I had a flavorful lentil ham pilaf topped with a delicious duck filet And a duck... More

By far the best meal we had in Quebec City during our visit. The service was fantastic and the staff incredibly friendly. The menu has a wonderful assortment of farm to table dishes and lots of locally sourced ingredients. The price was very reasonable and the atmosphere is great!

Went to the Cafe Le Hobbit for brunch with 6 other people (adults and children). We all ordered different menu items and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals...including an omelet, breakfast sandwich, smoked salmon on a baguette and waffles just to name a few! The food was fresh and the presentation gourmet! And…very important for a restaurant serving breakfast...the coffee was... More

I had the Duck Duo and it was delicious; duck perfectly medium rare on a lovely lentil base with roasted vegetables. My wife had an herb encrusted filet mignon, equally excellent. We love good food and its so nice to have expectations exceeded! A wonderful last night's dinner on our vacation.

Will most certainly return!! Recommended by our hotel concierge since it was -30 outside. The decor is lovely and the food is not your average chain/franchise food. Just a hope skip and a jump from the Delta Quebec.

Adorable little spot. Sat at a table by the window which had a nice view of the street. I ordered a french onion soup that had beer and maple in it and a beet salad. Both were excellent!

Prior to our visit I checked TripAdvisor to select restaurants for our meals. This was one selected but it was outside the walled city where we were staying so I was uncertain if we would go outside of the walled area. As our bags didn't come on our flight, my contact lens solution didn't come with us. As we arrived... More
