There is something special about a place with a focused menu that knows what it does well and sticks to it. We were seated quickly, not penalized because we did not speak French, served warmly and quickly, and filled to the brim with delicious food.

As a traveling vegetarian, I always do my research before a trip, and pick restaurants with good vegetarian choices. I picked this place because of their lunch menu. I even made a reservation (which I'd probably suggest). I saw something on their website about serving brunch on New Year's week, but I misunderstood that that meant brunch instead of lunch,...

Le Clocher Penché Bistrot is a first class experience. Our group from San Francisco spanned three generations of foodies and we all agreed that the food was incredibly well prepared, flavors were well-balanced, and the service was excellent. It is a real find and a must-visit eatery in Quebec City. Seriously, this place is wonderful.

We were able to get in because we decided to do an early Saturday Brunch. Prepare to enjoy your multi course tasting Brunch. We each ordered our Brunch Entree but all enjoyed the introductory courses. This is the best way to start off on a Saturday in Quebec City. We then enjoyed a stroll through the local shops an the...

My husband and I had brunch here on our last trip to Quebec City. Definitively a great dining experience. The service was excellent and the food was very good.

I can say that, without hesitation, an appetizer we shared while dining late on the first of two consecutive nights we ate there (yes, we returned a second night - it was that good!) was one of the finest and most well-balanced dishes I've ever encountered. The braised pork shoulder and boudin were simply perfect. Perhaps the only fault I... More

Ive tried a lot of restaurants in the city and this one is where i am never disapointed. The food is always perfect. I go for breakfast, lunch and dinner and it's always a 10/10. Not the most outgoing and festive place to be, but certainly the best food in town.

Brunch is quickly becoming my favorite travel meal - and Clocher did not disappoint! Tastefully decorated with local artwork, this eclectic cafe boasts friendly service and an excellent table d'hote brunch menu with creative mains whimsically named "the Eucharist" and the like (funny as we dined on Sunday morning). At $17 pp, I was delighted with my latte bowl (or... More

We have been visiting quebec city regularly over the last 25 years and have always enjoyed the local variations on the Bistro theme. The St-Joseph Blvd seems to enjoy a revival lately and Clocher Penche is part of it. Grat service.à: we could only get a table at 20h30 on a Saturday night. When we arrived we had to wait... More

Got a love a brunch that includes 2 coffees AND an amuse-bouche in the price... which isn't cheap but worth the money. My smoked sturgeon was fantastic and my husband's blood sausage also delicious. This isn't where you go for bacon and eggs :)
