Make this a must-see destination on your trip. Menu offers a wide variety but I recommend the standard 5 course menu to really experience a great meal.

I ate here twice for dinner in the evening. The service and food was superb. Be sure, if you are allergic to certain foods, to ask the waiter the contents. The second time I ate there, I ordered salmon which came in a pastry shell covered with a shrimp (allergic) sauce. The shepherd's pie and duck were especially good.

This was a lovely place to eat, great service, not rushed. Well prepared, very tasty, generous serving sizes of Quebec cuisine. Enjoyed an early supper for an excellent price, the price does go up after 5:45 (not exactly sure of the price change time, it is notably different so it is worth calling to find out)

The attempt to recreate traditional Quebecoise cooking results in average quality. Ordered Grandma's Treat which is a sampler plate containing traditional meat pie, meat balls and other local dishes. All were tasty, but not exceptionally memorable. While the luncheon special includes one glass of beer or wine, the price of the meal varies based on appetizer supplements and the price... More

We followed the suggestions to try the table d'hote by going for dinner at 5:30 to sample traditional Canadian cuisine in an a historic building. We made a reservation, which may not have been necessary since it was mid-week, but might be so on a weekend. The room was very quaint and we had a nice table near the window.... More

We ate lunch at Aux Anciens Canadiens on a rainy summer day. It wasn't terribly crowded and the atmosphere is wonderful. A glass of beer and some authentic Quebec cuisine made for a wonderful time.

We dined here on the advice of several friends who insisted we must eat here. First, the good news. We arrived 1/2 hour early and were nevertheless promptly seated. The server was pleasant and prompt with the service despite the fact that she seemed to be run off her feet. Now the bad news. We were started off with small... More

We were very pleased with our dinner at Aux Anciens Canadiens. The service was very good and, more importantly, the food was authentic and interesting. We each ordered from the table d'hote menu. For appetizers, we went with poutine and escargot and both were delicious, especially the poutine. For our main course, I had lamb and my husband chose the... More

This is our 3rd time visiting Quebec City and each time we make an effort to eat Quebecois as much as possible. The lunch menu is varied and delicious. On offer is a glass of wine or beer, soup, entree and dessert. The choice of entree dictates the price. My husband and I ordered the Lac St Jean meat pie.... More

It's a charming restaurant, with interesting décor and unique menu, but the food though it sounded good, was not very tasty and so, not worth the price.
