We happened to pass by it around 5pm, and noticed they had an early bird special. Because we had previously heard about it, didn't have lunch and really wanted to try some authentic Canadian food, we went for it.

It is in the oldest house in the old city, and the atmosphere oozes history. The service was great. Our food was all great quality. The standouts were Quebec meat pie and the Maple pie. You cannot go wrong with a hearty lunch in this historic setting.

A tour guide tipped us off to the fact that this lovely restaurant serves a three-course meal for about $20CD in the afternoons until 5:45. We skipped lunch and ate a rich but delicious traditional Quebec meal.

Dinner for six. Meal was good - couple of us had trappers plate, others steak, soup etc. a bottle of wine and a couple of beers had the bill (with tax) at about $400 + tip. Overall, we didn't find it as great as what other reviewers have expressed so a bit let down. Service was good and efficient but... More

After looking around the restaurants in the old town of Quebec R & I finally decided to stop by Aux Anciens Canadiens for lunch. The inside of the place is very cozy and warm , perfect for a cold winter night but nonetheless nice in the summer. They had a great deal for lunch, a glass wine or beer, appetizers,... More

Delicious experience. Food was great. Service was excellent. Had lunch in the late afternoon. The meal lived up to other reviews. We had the yummy meat pie for the entree. The maple sugar pie was okay, like pecan pie without the pecans - very sweet without much substance.

WE have always liked this restaurant because it offers foods that are more native to Quebec with wild game available in some of the dishes. The specials offered before 6 PM make a visit here much more economical. Do not miss the Maple Sugar Pie!

Yes, you will most likely find more tourists dining here than locals. We typically shun touristy type restaurants, but decided to go because the menu offers so many native foods, We're very glad we did. The restaurant is full of charm being the oldest in Quebec, as it was built in 1675-76. We dined on a mid-June Thursday night with... More
