Dinner After A Long Day

We had driven 8 hours to get to Quebec and were walking around when we got there. We happened upon The Hobbit and and after telling them we do not have a reservation, we were seated. The food was good and the atmosphere was good. It revived my spirits after

Good food, sort of a cross between French and Italian (duck confit canneloni). Attentive waiter, good value. Outside the Old City, so it seems a little more "real".Didn't feel like a tourist trap.

Dropped in here close to closing in the evening, we were seated after a few minutes without a reservation and the service was attentive. My friend's meal was good, but mine was excellent. The pork was cooked perfectly. Recommended.

We did not have a reservation on a Sunday night but we were able to be seated. The service was excellent and had a very pleasant meal.

Evening meal at Cafe Le Hobbit was good but not great. 1. Based on the previous trip advisor reviews we got the Duck Duo, a seared duck and breaded duck confit on apricot marmalade. Hate to tell you but the seared duck was tough and the duck confit had limited taste. The shining part of the dish was the green... More

Definitely a great find. A nice cozy place, local hangout it seemed. The service can not be faulted; wine recommended was fabulous. Steak dinner perfectly prepared, frites delicious. Duck two ways on lentils wonderful as well. Small patio for outdoor seating - indoor windows open to the patio. Great experience, will definitely make my way there again when back in... More

We had worked our way down from the Grand Allee just as a large black could loomed ahead. We were targetting the Hobbit, based on our landlord's recommendation, and made it through the door just as the skies opened up. We both ordered French Onion soup made with beer and maple syrup, and followed with excellent burgers on wonderful toasted... More

I showed up when it was quite busy, but managed to get a spot at the bar counter. Unfortunately, I was not able to sample any drinks as I had an important event the next day, but the food was pretty good. I had the trout with tartar sauce (served sort of sushi style so it is uncooked), but arrived... More
