La Crémaillère fête ses 40 ans. Depuis 1971 le restaurant la Crémaillère a toujours été au centre de la gastronomie de Québec et un repas à La Crémaillère demeure un classique incontournable lors d’un passage dans la Vieille Capitale. Aujourd’hui la cuisine est confiée à Jacques Le Pluart. Figure importante de l’histoire gastronomique de Québec son style raffiné et authentique saura vous combler. Beppino Boezio le propriétaire n’as rien perdu de sa passion. Personnage haut en couleur et très connu a Québec, il vous accueillera avec classe et simplicité. Beppino a vu passer bien des personnalités. Il importe ses vins directement des producteurs et avec son associé Michel Antoine ils ont concocté une offre de vin unique et remarquable. Les expositions de peintres et les choix musicaux font qu’un moment à la Crémaillère sera une expérience culinaire et artistique qui enchantera vos cinq sens.

Incredible Meal. Nice They Accommodated My Wife's Allergies

Wow, I am surprised this place has ever gotten a less than stellar review. We went to both La Cremaillere and Le Saint-Amour this past weekend. My wife cannot do dairy and meat (vegan) and we emailed them ahead of time. They wrote back quickly and created a special meal for us. If you have... read more

Unfortunately there isn't much positive to say here. The staff were friendly and helpful, but the dining room is dated and the food distressingly poor.

In a Quebec City Christmas week with lots of fine dining La Cremaillere was the one big disappointment for us. I hope it was just an off night for them - our usually very dependable concierge swears by it - but from the moment we walked in we were put off by a certain stiff and (we felt) unwelcoming formality....

If you appreciate and lust for an exquisite dining experience, La Cremaillere will not disappoint. From the escargots in creme sauce with puff pastry, to the carrot purée with mushroom soup, to the filet of Alberta beef with onions and king mushrooms, to the cheese tray before dessert, and the specially brewed decaf espresso, nothing was disappointing. Our waiter was... More

An absolutely superb restaurant in old Quebec City. Fantastic cuisine, and great service. Highly recommended. This is a high end restaurant and it comes at a cost, but it is well worth it.

My fiance and I were very lucky to have been given the chance to dine in such a fine restaurant! Be preprared to spend a bit of money and pace yourself. The food is divine. We're a bit picky when it comes to services, but it was just outstanding, our water goblets were always full, the servers were a delight.... More

My wife and I travelled by train to Quebec City for a weekend. Two weeks before the trip we phoned for a Sunday evening reservation for Jan. 18 which was confirmed by the employee. Their web site also indicated they were open. When we arrived in the evening by taxi we found the restaurant door locked and the taxi had... More

All I can say is Wow! My husband and I visit Quebec each year and this year we decided to try new restaurants. All I can say is that I wish we found this restaurant during our first visit because we would be here every time. The service was exceptional, and the entire staff was very attentive. The food was...

We chose this restaurant based on reviews on TA. We arrived and were seated promptly at 8:15. We were not aware that there was a specific 5 course-prix fixe menu for the evening (even though we were called to place a $20/pp deposit a few days prior) you had a choice of 2 appetizers, 4 entrees, 1 soup, 1 lemon...

Worth a visit if you want a classic white table cloth dinning experience where you can hear the conversations at your table without shouting.....very good food and attentive service and an easy and pleasant walk from most hotels.
