Charming place to eat

Was recommended to eat at La Grolla to taste the meat fondue. A small walk from the hotel where we stayed. The restaurant is small, more like the front room of a house. Booking a table would be highly recommended as it can get very busy. Never had a meat fondue, so was looking forward to trying... read more

I was set on going to a fondue resturant and made a reservation for 4 adults. There was an off putting smell upon arrival. It may have been the cheese cooking but regardless they need a better fan system. The smell would not encourage anyone's appetite. The food was okay and expensive for what you got. Meals ranged from $23-$33.+.... More

We have been at the restaurant twice now, on two separate trips to Quebec City. We went out of our way on the second trip to make sure we stopped by again. The choices on the menu are great and we just loved the fondue both times. The waitresses were very, very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and although quaint, the atmosphere... More

Although they did not have the reservation (and not sure why) we made through internet the rest of the evening was just great. The two servers Alex and Arianne we just the best. The food was good and unpretentious. A small gem to discover.

We went to this restaurant as part of a "La Forfaiterie" gift certificate which included the Table d'hôte. We called for a reservation about a week in advance because we knew it was a small place. But when we called again on the same day to confirm the time, we were told the reservation was never made and we practically... More

A great place to enjoy a delicious and fun meal with children. We decided to have the cheese/meat/chocolate trio and were not disappointed. The meal was yummy and very fun for our young boys to cook their own meat. Service was very friendly and helpful. Our waitress recommended the perfect order for our table of six.

My wife loves Swiss fondue, and so we asked around for a good fondue restaurant. Another restaurant owner on Saint Jean Street told us that the best fondue restaurant in the Old City area was La Grolla. La Grolla is not exactly in the Old City - it's a few blocks outside the walls, but it isn't hard to find... More

Warm, cozy atmosphere with great staff. The pace was perfect and serving sizes left us feeling full. Best cheese fondue I've ever had...mushrooms and cognac - add garlic....SO GOOD! Would not recommend the maple (too runny) but the chocolate fondue was great. Will definitely go back!

My husband and I had been planning to go to this restaurant for months leading up to our trip to Quebec based on a friend's recommendation. We arrived without a reservation and chose to stick to our choice and came back two hours later to find our table ready and a helpful server ready to get us our meal. We... More
