The food is really traditional québécois. I tried the meat pie with freshly made fruit sauce and poutine for appetizers; Traditional Quebec stew and the Three Tenderloin (bison, deer, wapiti) for main; and the Taster for desert. Definitely worth going if you would like some traditional Quebec food and especially recommended if it's your first time in Quebec City. I... More

The atmosphere of this restaurant is lovely and casual -- it's one of the oldest restaurants in Quebec City, and has an extremely varied menu for meat-lovers. I'm pescatarian so I went with the salmon, which was good, but my favorite dish was the escargot, which were outstanding. I hated escargot the first time I tried them, so Aux Anciens... More

Mark this place down for an extraordinary québécois lunch. For $19.95 you will enjoy wine/beer, homemade vegetable or pea soup, chef special ( our day was pork medallions in a creamy mustard sauce, creamy mashed potatoes, turnip, broccoli) or tourtière with roasted potatoes, fruit chutney, turnip and broccoli. To conclude you can enjoy one of three dessert choices. We choice... More

This quaint 18th century cottage is the real deal. We went for supper and had the St. Jean meat pie (5 meats - deer, elk, caribou, beef and pork if I recall correctly). One price of $21.99 included the soup (french split pea) and a glass of beer or wine and fresh bread basket. A great deal and the meal... More

Pre-5:30 is the time to go. It is quite affordable and the portions are more than filling. Service wonderful. Everything we had to eat was to notch. Caribou and boar rillettes... If it is available, get it. Absolutely wonderful. Look forward to a return visit!

We were recommended this place by one of our tour guides. We stopped in for lunch and were glad we did! This place has a large variety of options, from filet of caribou to bison burgers. Our server was very attentive and spoke English well enough for us to get by. The food was very good and the meal was... More

A charming restaurant. I had a lovely meal here. I ordered the caribou, which was quite interesting. A lot like venison. And the most expensive menu item! But, when will I ever have the chance to eat caribou? The service was very nice and I had an enjoyable experience. The menu is extensive, with a number of options. If I... More

We had the pre-5:30 special which was excellent. One party had the Quebec meat pie, which special included choice of beverage, soup/salad and dessert. Total cost was $20 plus tax and tip. The other entree was the Filet with wild sausage special which included beverage, soup/salad and dessert for $25.00. Both specials were excellent and would recommend.

I have been to Aux Anciens Canadiens on a few occasions. My most recent experience was the same as most of the others - great food and atmosphere! Tatiana, our server, did a great job of recommending items for our table. The food was high quality and in good quantities. The filet de salmon was excellent. I'll continue to return... More

We three walked from our room in the Chateau Frontenac for an early dinner. This restaurant is very close by. The Americans were seated together in a small upstairs dining room with a mere four tables. Our server spoke perfect English, an appreciated gift! This is a gem of a restaurant, servers are gracious; their knowledge of the menu, ability... More
