Yes, it is a tourist trap but what's not to love about dining in the oldest house in Quebec City (17th century) and eating authentic Quebec cuisine? The food was very good and the service was excellent. If you are in town for more than a couple of nights, it's worth a visit.

The best authentic Canadian food we have ever tasted. We had the grandpa treat, which has two types of pies , pork knuckle, salted pork, the most delicious meatballs we have ever tasted. But wait... the best maple syrup pie to top it up!!! We came back two days later for dinner and had the grandma treat ( smaller than... More

With a decor of the Quebec blue and white table settings and natural wood tones provided by interesting wood cuts, the environment is inviting and cozy. Food offerings are excellent and include wild game. We had the salmon in puff pastry and the scallop and shrimp coquille. Both were excellent. Wine selection is good. Wait staff is friendly and are... More

The price fixe menu is quite a deal for hungry diners. We had about 20 selections of traditional Québécois dishes to choose from, including beer or wine, soup, entree, and desert. I had the delicious pea soup, a game meat pie, and sinfully sweet maple sugar pie for desert. The decor is authentic, servers informative, and food delicious. I would... More

The food here is as advertised--hearty Quebecois fare. When was the last time you had caribou? Bison? Well, here you can get it if you so desire. The only thing missing is a Royal Canadian Mountie, and he may have been in the kitchen, for all I know. My wife and I took advantage of the "early bird special," 5:45... More

We walked in right at the beginning of dinner time and were seated without a reservation. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We did the table d'hotel which was a bit too much food for us, but we wanted to sample as much as we could. The meat pie was very close to my grandmother's and was delicious.

We (family of four) stayed at the Chateau a few nights. We ate here the first night as its right around the corner and came back for more on the third. I had meat pie (just like my granmother used to make). It came with meatballs, some sort of fruit based side and a couple of beets. It was perfect.... More

First I will say the service was fantastic! Friendly, knowledgeable... Every single one of the dishes we had was delicious. I HAD to start with poutine, my husband had the confit de canard salad, we had both meat pies, the stew, and even homemade ketchup -all were great. The dessert plate for 2 was a super variety and my husband... More

Boasting local dishes at the oldest building in Quebec this restaurant promises a little more than it delivers. Food is in North American quantities and it feels a little heavy. The table d'hôtel is good value but the portions make it too much. The meat pie specialities were a bit dry but my bison bourguinon was delicious. Service was not... More

Great example of Quebec cuisine. Meat pie and soup were good... Entrees of baked salmon and chicken breast were good..not great. Very quaint with nice ambiance.
