The food is good matched by the service we ( 3 of us ) sampled the Canelloni, Lapin and Lamb Shanks with no complaints. Prices seemed average $22 / 26 for main courses. I do not hesitate to recommend

Small restaurant close to Old Québec, decor beautiful and modern. We came for a late lunch (2 adults, 2 kids) and everything in the menu were available, even the daily menu. Good options for food and drink, but for adults. Kid's option was steak, small salad and fries. For me, I ordered pasta with sausage that was really a good... More

We've been to this restaurant before - always for brunch as it's really our favorite breakfast place in the upper City. It's quaint and the food is always very good. The Eggs Bennedictine are simply delicious (tarragon in sauce - wow). The coffee is great and the service is too. I gave it 4 only because my aunt's eggs were... More

Stopped for lunch and it was good. Salads and poutine. The poutine was pork. A little "porky" for my taste. Salad was an excellent beet salad. Very good. A nice place to stop for coffee and a light snack perhaps.

Decided to try this restaurant out on advice from the fellow at our B&B. The restaurant was quite busy when we arrived. We were seated right away and our waiter was at our table within moments. He was very helpful in helping us choose a wine, gave us a sample of a couple to try to make sure that they... More

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at our hotel. I had a venison stew and my wife had cannelloni filled with duck confit, both of which were excellent. The service was very good throughout the meal and there was a nice selection of wines by the glass. A nice, low-key, every-day type of bistro: we're glad we went.

This place has rather good reviews but our experience was not very good. The soup of the day was good but my husbands fettuccine (served with pork) was almost crunchy. It could have used a few more minutes cooking. My brother-in-law's calamari was terrible. It was rubbery and very greasy. So much so that we complained. We showed the manager... More

Le Hobbit was recommended by our hotel in Old Montreal. We asked for a place you would send your friends and family, not tourists, that had good food, was reasonably priced, and not stuffy. The 20-minute walk was worth it. It's situated on a stretch of Rue St-Jean that is an inviting mix of funky and chic. We had a... More

Came for dinner. I ordered the Duck Confit Canneloni and my partner ordered the burger with thin fries. The Canneloni was very cheesy and filling, but just a little too rich tasting. My partner thought the burger was average tasting, sort of bland, but the fries were great. Wasn't the best meal of our trip.

My wife and I went to this restaurant about 0.5 kilometers from the hotel. The atmosphere around the restaurant was lively and very French. We were immediately seated and the waiter had recommendations for the wine which was expensive, but good. We both had the osso buccho but it was dry. The roasted vegetables were wonderful, but the meat not... More
