Authentic Quebequois food of the past

Recommended by our host and worth the walk and the price. Very tasty, and generous servings, with good service. Enjoyed the atmosphere as well, and prices were reasonable.

Situated in one of the oldest original houses in Quebec, this restaurant offers original Canadian fare at very reasonable prices. Bison, meat pies, duck, and lamb are just some of the items on the menu. Our party of thirty was accommodated nicely and the service did not suffer despite our large group. Specials including beer or wine, entrée, and dessert... More

Food was amazing, like having dinner at grandmothers. An old fashioned feast! Pea soup, pork loin, mashed potatoes and really excellent red cabbage. Don't forget to have the sugar pie. The ambience in this historic building and the cozy decorations plus warm and friendly service make this a must do while visiting Quebec City.

This quaint little restaurant is an absolute gem of authentic Quebec cuisine. You absolutely MUST eat here if you are in Quebec. The service was relaxed and very friendly. The food was like nothing I have ever tasted before. The price was very reasonable for a once in a trip adventure.

The famous icon was recommended to us by everyone we knew who had been to Quebec City, so we had to go. A good friend mentioned it was the best meal they had every had in a restaurant. We were told we absolutely had to order the French Onion soup and try their poutine. We did. The soup was probably... More

Visited 4 years ago and nothing has changed except that they now offer the luncheon special every day of the week, which is a fantastic value. Appetizer, glass of wine, choice of 9 french rustic cuisine entrees, and a dessert all included in the luncheon special. Warm ambiance in the old house, great staff, and the food is lovely.

The crust is so delicate on the meat pie, could not believe it. Tiny diced potatoes so tender and the... More
