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 :)

This is one of the last meals we ate on our Aug. 2014 honeymoon to Quebec City, and I am so glad we saved the best for last. The meal was not just delicious--it was inspiring! Being from the Midwestern U.S., we didn't make a reservation (so few restaurants here even take them, so we are unused to setting them... More

I visited this restaurant as part of a St Roche food tour. The ambiance and décor was great and you could see into the kitchen area. Lots of lovely wall displays as well. We were served a superb starter of filo and cheese complemented by a delightful chardonnay blend which was a perfect match for the food. The food and... More

A group of us had dinner and we ordered a variety of first and second courses. There was a long delay between courses but the food was delightful. The chicken liver appetizer was outstanding. Beef and pork were very good and desserts home made and satisfying.

I came to this restaurant at least 15 time during the last few years, usually on Sunday for a late breakfast (brunch). The breakfast is exceptional, very original, well execute and presented always delicious with consistency. I like the ambience too A must go in Quebec for a fancy breakfast ! congratulation to the team and the chefs

A place to savour, in every sense of the word. Local terroir cooking to a very high standard, from a short (but therefore focused) menu that still made choosing difficult since everything appealed. The place had a buzz, but none of the attitude that often accompanies it. Full of energy, full of friends enjoying the food and the experience. My... More
