Cozy with regional food, very reasonable for price.

Cozy with regional food, very good, very reasonable for price. Lovely little restaurant to tuck into on a snowy evening, with (gas) fireplace and low ceilings. Menu was interesting and pleased both a 12 year old and mom. Comfy and homey, good service.

We dined on a Wednesday night, and the restaurant was not busy. Service was not fast, and meat ordered medium was more rare than medium. The waitress checked to see how our meals were , but too soon for me to realise my meal was not S ordered.A free Creme Brûlée was by way of a apology. However an establishment... More

Very historic in a small quaint house/restaurant, atmosphere & surroundings were very nice. Service was good. Food, a disclaimer: as a family of 4 in old Quebec we took advantage of the before 6pm special menu, so the review is somewhat limited. Appetizers, onion soup was ok, salad was average. Main menu, meat pie very dry(reviewed by my 10 year... More

We had a nice dinner at this place, with a very friendly and attentive waitress and the fireplace right behind us to warm us up on this very cold day. The food was good, though not mind boggling, and the prices, compared to some other restaurants on the same street, still reasonable.

I've eaten here a number of times and each time it's been delicious. This restaurant is pricey but they do have a prix fix menu from 5:00 - 6:00 PM. A definite stop when in Quebec. Reservations are a must.

Famous place in oldest building in old Quebec and a stopping point on the walking tour of the old city. Known for traditional home cooking from the early days. I found it a bit over priced and the food not as delicious as I had hoped. Maybe I would have felt differently with a different menu selection.

I remember dining here on my honeymoon, and my then-husband's portion was so miniscule that he was furious and took it out on me. Needless to say, I left him a few years later. My point is, though, the portions are still small, and the food just isn't worth the high prices. This place is historic, and I think they're... More

My wife and I have eaten here over the past 18 years on a handful of occasions. They serve authentic French Canadian country style meals and the atmosphere is very pleasant.The food is heavy simply because of the style of food served. That being said, it's in many respects quite a rare dinning experience and excellent.

.. but expected more of the meal. It was just alright... my wife enjoyed the meat pie dish and I enjoyed the bison but the fries were not good (I know, I know, shouldn't expect much of fries anyway). Can't beat the decor and the sense of history.
