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

I had a lunch there this week and was very positively surprised. Delicious food and great service! Portions could be slightly bigger (it would not be enough for my husband) but I would/will come back there next time I'm in Quebec.

You absolutely will not be disappointed with this spot on Rue St-Jean. Just a stones throw from Old Quebec. We were there for a late lunch and found the menu to be exceptional. The staff and service were very good. Informative and very helpful. Tartares were exceptional as was the charcuteries. Excellent stop - should be rated much higher!

Cold food with average taste and truly surly service. Not worth the price at all. Was expecting much more given other reviewers' experience but I can't give such a disappointing meal a better review.

I plan to go back there tonight for a second helping. It was great sitting outside and watching people as they strolled by. The service was very good.

French style prepared with fresh foods, and was it delicious! it was recommended and we are pleased that dined there. it is smaller with outside street side dining. Simple per se' but nicely done all the way around. I would suggest that you give it a try if you are in the CIty.

This was a darling little restaurant in Quebec. While not in the Old Town, this restaurant was on what turned out to be a walking street on Sundays. Watching the people walk by was a treat and added to the atmosphere. Our server was fluent in both languages and was very helpful in chosing wines and food. Would definitely return.
