We were looking for a place to be the 'local' experience, and this definitely executed perfect. The atmosphere is really beautiful, and the service was very prompt, but not rushed. The portions are surprisingly large for a fancy restaurant. They structure the menu in a way that you'll likely get the combo of App + Main + Dessert + Coffee/Tea.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Aux Anciens Canadiens. It is located very close to Chateau Frontenac in a very old and charming building. It was extremely cold outside, and the fireplace and helpful staff were most welcoming. We wanted to try traditional Quebecois cuisine, and sample foods that are not available at home. My husband loved the entrée Raclette... More

Yes this place is a bit touristy, but it is in the middle of the tourist district so that's hard to avoid. If you're looking for an experience and taste of Old Quebec, give it a try (unless you're a vegetarian). The service was very good even though they were busy (reservations recommended), faster than usual in Quebec but not... More

We were looking to absorb the culture and were told this was an old-world style French Canadian restaurant. Not only was there a roaring fire, beautiful wood carvings on the walls, and amazing service to create an ambiance that could not be beat, the food was incredible! I had a bison stew in a blueberry wine sauce that was delicious.... More

Located in one of the oldest buildings in Old Quebec on rue St Louis, this restaurant provides traditional atmosphere, food and service. We went for lunch on a cold winter day and were pleasantly surprised that they have a special until 6PM for $19,95. The special included a glass of wine or beer, soup or salad, entree and dessert.

We had a lovely St. Valentines dinner at Aux Anciens Canadiens. The beautifully preserved and restored buildings were a perfectly romantic setting for the marvellous food and service. The caribou, pea soup and trio of sorbets were so wonderful that we had to return two days later to try another variety of foods. My heritage is French Canadian, and this... More

We loved the low ceilings, open beams, antique furniture, and cozy ambiance of the Anciens Canadian. I read about it online and it met my expectations. The food was well prepared selections of authentic Acadian food. Great service by staff en costume. Probably a good idea to make reservations as the restaurant is well known by tourists. We did not... More

My hubby and I had a reservation for dinner on December 31st. This restaurant is very well known in the Old Quebec for its historical value and the wonderful food and service they offer. We sat at a cozy table on the second floor and ate way too much! Came out 3 hours later, just in time to see the... More
