for meat lovers

Love the small rooms of this old restaurant, although if you happen to be seated next to a large and rowdy party, maybe not quite so fun. You must be a meat-eater to enjoy this place, as that is their specialty.

We ordered the $49 per person: appetizer, a glass of wine or beer, main course, and dessert. The onion soup and desserts were good. The main course were average. The house red wine tasted like old wine and very vinegary. We expected a lot from this restaurant due to the reviews. Overall we could have skipped out and gone to... More

We enjoyed a 3 course meal here as part of a special birthday celebration. The service was good and the food was delicious. We were seated upstairs by the window and I would be happy to celebrate another birthday there sometime.

We read about this place while preparing for our trip to Quebec and decided to try it. While it may look a little "touristique" from the outside, it's SO worth the visit. We were among the first to arrive for lunch at 1 pm. and within 30 minutes, the place was completely full. We enjoyed the rillettes of caribou and... More

I love this restaurant. Everytime I visit Quebec it is on my "must eat there" list. The food and service is always top notch. The restaurant is one of the oldest in the city, and just lovely and quaint inside. If you can, go mid afternoon where you can get a great Table D'Hote including one glass of beer or... More

Every time we visit Quebec City, we always make a stop at this restaurant. The restaurant is actually well known for its excellent and typical Canadian dish and for its location in the Old Quebec. Visitors will also appreciate the feeling of seating in such a beautiful house, the oldest built in Québec City and where apparently, Champlain also resided.... More

So, we each had a fixed price meal at 49.00 CAD. Mine was a meat pie with various canadian game meat, elk, caribou, etc. It also has a bison stew included. Both were pretty good. They also served a "ketchup" with the meal. The Ketchup was a tangy mix of tomatoes, onions, vinegar, et al. All good. The house wine,... More

My friends and I visited this place for supper and it was one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten! If you go I recommend the maple pie.

Traditional atmosphere. Menu ranges from traditional Canadian to modern Canadian/American with some French influence and beyond . Tremendously polite and friendly service. All food perfectly prepared. Nicely sized portions at a fair price.

This is a gem right in down town Quebec City. They feature Canadian comfort food. The restaurant is located on the second floor and is not handicapped accessible.
