We have looked forward to dining in this restaurant since our first visit nearly 5 years ago. While it is in a beautiful building and has a lovely interior, the experience left so much to be desired. I'm still shaking my head that this restaurant is in the top of 50 in Quebec City? We arrived for the early bird... More

We ate early twice (7 month old baby in tow) and selected various items from the exceptionally priced early bird menu - 3 courses and a glass of wine/beer from $20. The pea soup and rillettes are really good starter options, Quebec Pie, Grandma's Meatball Ragout and the Bison Burger were all really tasty mains and the various pies for... More

This restaurant is in a former home which is the oldest home in Quebec. During my last visit to the Old Quebec City, a group of us ate here and loved the food and all the separate small intimate rooms. Prior to leaving Toronto, I made reservations again to this restaurant. As this time of year is not as busy,... More

This is a very cozy restaurant with nice ambiance. We stumbled upon it in December. It was the perfect respite from the cold. It is a small place but we got there right at noon and were seated right away. By 1:30pm the place was filled so I'd go a bit early if you don't make a reservation. It is... More

A delicious sampling of the traditional Quebecois meat pie - made me feel like a part of the history of this wonderful city. The restaurant is in the oldest house in the old city so eating there appealed to my sense of history also.

Truly a gourmet experience. This is perfect for an adventurous eater (by American standards). they specialize in wild game meats. Wapiti, Caribou, Red Deer, are some of the meats you'll find there. All prepared exceptionally. I had the table d'hote which was a multi-course dinner and I sampled some of the best dishes I've ever eaten in my 49 years... More

Stumbled upon this gem our first night in Old Quebec and it was perfect and worth every penny. Friendly staff, got us seated fairly quickly even though we didn't have a reservation. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was just perfect for experiencing Old Quebec. Highly recommend this one to all.

My bf and I walked in without a reservation for lunch and only had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and our servers were also very friendly and welcoming of tourists. The food was some of the best we've ever eaten, and also unusual for us Americans. I had a cream... More

Visited last year on Christmas Eve, in 2014 visited a couple of days after Christmas, and have to say that the service levels remain impeccable. We had reservations and were seated promptly. Last visit, we had ordered the works, the dinner including appetizer, soup, etc. and discovered it was way too much food for us. This year we ordered a... More

This was a pleasant experience all around. The service was the best we had in Quebec. Our server was so friendly. We also enjoyed our food. I started with yummy chicken soup and then had lamb which was delicious and tender. My husband had meat pie which he said was excellent. We split some sorbet for dessert. It was also... More
