Great atmosphere, great service, great food. This is French food experience that will not disappoint. A bit pricey, but worth it.

I used TA to look for some of the top restaurants in the old city and La Cremaillere was one that was highly rated (and expensive). We got there early but were seated immediately. My wife was set on having Chateaubriand for two and it was really excellent and done perfectly. The staff was very attentive although we did have... More

I was sorry to read that someone was disappointed in their dining experience here in a big group. We were a group of 54 with Trafalgar Tours, and our dining experience was fantastic. We had a choice of four mains, but we had pre ordered what we all wanted, and our meals were very prompt, well presented, and extremely tasty!!... More

I ate at the Crémaillère on Sunday last with a group of about 30 people. We had reservations through Global Tourisme and had a fixed menu - we could only choose from three main courses. Because of this, I thought the service would be fast - I was wrong. The main courses were served in batches - chicken first, then... More

Somewhat stodgy old school experience with good food and tired looking waiters. Don't expect too much innovation here, although food quality was quite good. We would not return as we want more interesting selections for our $100 plus dollars per person! The background music which included Christmas music in August probably needs some attention!

From the moment you approach the wonderful architectural example of old Québec French design (step up three steps) and enter the foyer dramatically presenting a grand circular stairway - you know you are in for a wonderful experience. While occupying this present venue (abutting an old nunnery) for a little over ten years, the restaurant has been serving Quebec residence... More

We had no reservations but were welcomed and taken to a table immediately. The service was excellent and both our waiters and maître d' helped at our table. Excellent mussels, salad and both main courses (beef filet and rack of lamb) couldn't have been better. Highly recommended and we will return.

I was a little put off at first as there was nobody in reception, so we left and then when we came back the Maitre d' seemed unwelcoming. First impressions are all too often wrong! He turned out to be a very professional, attentive and helpful Maitre d'. Yes....a very good man to have out front. I liked the calm... More
