We found this place by chance, it is not the poshest part of town, but nothing wrong with it. The building itself looks very friendly and inviting. So we gave it a try. We have been to the restaurant without reservations but got a table after some minutes. The service was great, very friendly, switched to English for my wife... More

This is a great restaurant. We have been here every time we come to Quebec City, and it never disappoints . The rabbit appetizer was complex and delicious, the ris de veaux was perfect, and the wagyu beef was so tender that you don't need teeth! Service was attentive and friendly, prices not exorbitant, overall highly recommended.

My husband and I chose La Clocher Penche Bistrot for dinner during our last night in Quebec and we were not disappointed. The cuisine was refined (from the warm olives offered to us upon our arrival, to the presentation of the food, to expert combination of the different tastes) and the service was impeccable and friendly (a shout out to...

Everything about this restaurant exceeded our expectations. The food was absolutely fabulous, well presented and cooked to perfection. The desserts are to die for! The restaurant itself is a converted old bank building with high ceilings and windows and a lovely atmosphere. Don't miss it if you are staying in one of the local hotels but be sure to book... More

This was one of the first of the restaurants I had planned on a Quebec city trip. We arrived at 1 p.m. and had not made reservations, no problem, a small wait and we were accommodated shortly after. The staff were friendly, courteous and accommodated our lack of french in a polite manner. As we had been waiting a few... More

Highly recommended. My hotel owner said that this is the best restaurant in Quebec City. He knows what he is talking since he has lived in Paris for 30 odd years. We had steak and mixed vegetables, the steak is good but the vegetables are especially tasty. I think the chef must have put in some Balsamico to achieve this... More

I've only ever been here for brunch and each time it's been fabulous. You've never had Eggs Benny like this and their French Toast is a work of art. Despite a very limited menu, each dish is a new twist on an old standard. There are different menus for brunch, lunch and dinner and their menus change every 4 months.... More
