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

Came in out of the rain with no recommendation or expectations. We were seated outside and watched the entertaining stream of people on St-Jermain while eating a superb meal, washed down with most excellent local beer (try the French onion soup). The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful and even gave us recommendations on other similar bistros... More

For Quebec City, I would expect better. Very okay. With so many culinary treats I'm interested in why this place is still around. Quebec has more to offer than here.

This is one of the better restaurants you will find in Quebec City. When the waiter came to our table, he began speaking a beautiful dialect of French. However, when he realized we didn't understand, he switched to English. The food was excellent, by the way.

Was recommended to go here by our concierge. It was away from the old city but within a short walk from our hotel and the gates of the old city. We were at first skeptical because of the name but were more than pleasantly surprised once we arrived. The dining room feels warm and inviting and a bit trendy. There... More

Again, we benefited from checking recommendations on tripadvisor. The restaurant was even better than we had been led to believe. My husband's beet salad with apples and roasted almonds was excellent; my trout tartare was outstanding. We shared a second appetizer of glazed duck drumsticks - yummy! Our main courses were both good: The duck duo (duck confit and a... More

We just went in for a quick snack. Had some wine with their combo cheese and meat platter. Platter was small as expected and was just ok. The service was below average and came across as pretentious. Food on the other tables looked good though but I'd try somewhere else next time.

Reasonably priced and huge selection. Vegetarian dishes, various meats, seafood, soups, salads, etc. service is amazing and the food beyond delicious. Gets quite busy though, so be prepared to wait or make a reservation. We were quite late so we only waited about 5 minutes before our table on the patio was ready.

I cant believe this restaurant, first the waitress sticks her hand in a glas of beer to remove something, then one of my potatoes weren't cooked very much and the taste of the potatoes certainly didn't live up to the description in the menu. When we went to pay she did already put the tip on the machine, how very... More
