The food was good, but our waiter was inattentive and slow, not seeming to even glance at us despite walking past us many times during our meal. Incidentally, we were polite and thankful when he did stop by. After discussion of the local horse-drawn carriages, he said he'd call us a one, which seemed very nice. We waited a long... More

Server was nice and professional. Very attentive (mind you is was, like, 2:30 in the afternoon and there was no one in the restaurant). Very obliging. Bread basket was generic. French onion soup was very salty. For the $10 I'd paid (before taxes) I would have thought I'd get a better soup for that price.

The lunch list is a good value and there are classic local dishes like meat pie and maple syrup pie. The quality of the food is average, the crusty on my meat pie was dry, so probably not worth paying the dinner prices.

Must visit once to experience the real Quebecois/Canadian food!! I haven't had so much game meat on my plate ever before! and the desert, something like a caramel pudding with Maple syrup... too bad I don't remember the name... It was Fantastic! Oh btw, you must go there to experience a little bit of history too... ! Enjoy!

I was really looking forward to dinner at Aux Anciens Canadiens, but I found the food to be inconsistent. The restaurant itself is in an interesting old house and the menu is based on historic Quebec cuisine. I had Grandma's Treat and my husband had the duck breast dinner. His french onion soup and duck breast were, but the vegetable... More

We arrived early evening for dinner. The building is reportedly one of first in the city and is uniquely constructed adding to its charm. Although we were upstairs in a fully seated and tiny back room, it still felt private and quiet. The multi-course dinner was delicious. I got the meat pie and my husband bison burger. The proportions were... More

Very nice place with traditional dishes. It is a bit pricey but the food is well prepared. Reasonable portions. As recommended by the Hotel we went for lunch.

How I love Quebec city. I am French Canadian and grew up not far from QC and boy do I wish I would have appreciated that city more when I was younger. Aux Anciens Canadiens, located in the oldest house of Quebec city, is one of my favorite restaurant in Quebec city. It brings me back to my younger days... More

If you're interested in trying bear, boar, red deer or wapiti then this is a must on your culinary agenda as they specialize in game. The restaurant is housed in a very old building and it is probably best to request a table on the main floor, as the upstairs was a bit crowded and felt too close. Plus it... More

I went there three times in 6 days in Quebec City. I was in the city on two occasions in October. I had been at this restaurant years ago. The setting of the old home is amazing. The staff was great. But the traditional food is second to none. I took my wife there for lunch on a Saturday and... More
