We had been wanting to get to this restaurant for the last several trips to Quebec City. We are from Los Angeles, so we don't get there that often. We stopped by for lunch after a walk around the Citadel to work up an appetite. You need one because the portions are generous. They have a special... read more

Came here with my parents (75 and 79). My dad grew up in Quebec and has lived in the states for over 60 years. He loved the tortierre, didn't want to disrespect the memory of my grandmother and say this was better - but, just as good. Lovely staff and quite attentive. Je Suis Vegetarian - vegetables au gratin were... More

If you're looking to experience the unique cuisine of Quebec, I highly suggest a visit to this restaurant. It is located in a thick-walled building built in 1677 which when entered, leaves the tourist world behind. We ordered the lunch special for just under $20 Canadian; a steal for the variety provided. The price includes beer or wine, an appetizer... More

Unique restaurant in the heart of the Old Quebec City. This actually the oldest house in Quebec City. You can see the history when you walk in. The food is excellent, from reinvented cuisine to the more classic meals. You can also choose from a wide choice of wild meats. Delicious.

The building was built in 1677. Loved it. They have a special deal before 6 p.m. where you get an appetizer, main course and dessert for 19.99. I had some awesome reindeer and bison pate, plus a game meat pie. The second time, I went for the escargots--yummy--and grandma's meatballs. Wait staff very friendly. My waitress encouraged me to practice... More

Read about A.A.C. while researching Quebec City and was interested to try some historic Quebecois dishes. The eye-catching exterior (like all the buildings in the old town) didn’t hurt either. Pluses: Good food overall; meats were the best part. Liked the rilletes, baked beans, pea soup, bison bourguignon, beef tenderloin, maple pie+sorbet trio+fudge pie dessert plate (liked the sorbets best,... More

As we walked along rue Saint Loius this old White House with red roof and trim caught my eye. When we saw the menu was full of authentic Québécois dishes we made a reservation for later that night. It was not a disappointment. I started with one of my favourites, warm goat cheese salad, which was perfect. My husband had... More

Recently I decided to have my 65th birthday weekend in Vieux Quebec. Having been there many times, I knew this would be a perfect getaway for friends and family. My dinner was held at Aux Anciens Canadiens. We had a lovely private room for the 12 of us. Dinner was absolutely delicious and the service impeccable. As always, never a... More

A definite change of atmosphere for those new to Quebec, this historic restaurant provided us with great service and an interesting menu. The portions were large and we had the "Tres minions" which provided three meats of choice from a variety of Quebec animals. Our selection of deer, wapiti and boar were all very good. The cost was a bit... More

The meal was table d'hôtel and the pork pie with sweet chutney was a delight. The service was great and the setting old world. A must do!
